    Problem is hanging a solar shower, wherever you plan to hang it, 5 gallons of water is HEAVY! For my solar shower people will only get about a gallon or so at a time (im hanging it from my canopy and do not want that thing to break)

    So you either set up a shower schedule, or here is another thought... the water containers for your shower will be HOT. In a solar shower water can get up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. That's way too hot. so, use a little bit of water in the shower, then fill it up. If you want a cold shower, then... like... get water from your tub. I honestly think 1 shower will be fine. Or you get a set up for your shower (curtain or holder, etc) then you get like 2 bags. Not a big deal.

    Make sure you bring all the water you anticipate needing into the campgrounds with you as finding water to refill it once you're there is very difficult/impossible.

    Maybe shower with it a few times before to gauge how much you will need.

    You've been a member here since 2007, I'm surprised you're not used to those types of responses

    Why spend that much on a solar shower... I don't get it, even if you get 2 solar showers at 9.99 a piece it's cheaper and better. Less time for the water to heat up and less weight.

    a 10 gallon bag if completely full is at least weighing 83.5lbs....

    Was it the length or the girth that made it so perfect?

    I just brought some of these...http://www.traveljohn.com/1-1-1.php figure they will be sweet for late night pee missions.

    Yes, to avoid a late night mission of going in search of the porta potty just to pee, and then finding your tent again, Travel John's are awesome. And I know that you can pee into them without spilling and stuff, so no worries for others about stepping in it, but...do you really want to carry a bag of piss around with you from set to set?
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    one thinks you're going to piss in the crowd, the other thinks you're going to carry bags of piss around a music festival...

    is it common for new zealanders to act like this?

    More power! (To charge portable devices at the campsite not the public charging board with a longass wait)

    More circulation! (Bigger/better in-tent fan)

    More beer! (Wait, no less, our crew is half this year)

    More TP! (For Cornholio)

    More fruit! (For refreshment and vites)

    More gambling! (To help pay for Spicy Pie)

    More padding! (To sleep on)

    More water! (Duh)

    Hypothetically if you were against a fence, and someone shielded you while you went you'd be fine. You just throw that bag in the bin afterwards baby, it wont splash or get on anyone!
    The Travel John is the best thing since sliced bread IMO

    And when it comes to peeing in the crowd, bitch please, like boys havent done worse before.

    I did follow the links for international distributors but I'm worried I wouldnt get them before I leave. And I wouldnt really want customs to find them when they search my stuff.
