Solar shower bags; do they actually work?

Solar shower bagHaving a shower when you are camping takes comfort to a totally new level. I’ll never forget the first time we boiled a big pot of water over the fire and used a cheap 12V shower pump to have a shower after a days motorbike riding in the freezing evening at Broome Hill.


Our cheap and simple camping shower

Stainless steel camping bucketThere are lots of ways that you can have a camping shower when off the grid, and we’ve tried a heap of them. These days, a lot of people run hot water on demand units, which essentially take a supply of water, and a supply of gas, and spits out water at what ever temperature you want. We have one, sitting at home that came with the camper trailer, and I’ve never bothered to use it.

Solar panels for camping aren’t really worth it, are they?

Camper trailer solarWhile camped at the Kununurra, a bloke arrived on the campsite next door, and we got chatting. He wandered over to our mammoth solar setup on the camper trailer boat loader, and asked me what I thought of solar panels, saying ‘Solar panels for camping aren’t really worth it, are they’.


Vacuum Sealing Food; our secret to easier camping

Vacuum sealing for campingFood preparation and cooking at home is usually a fair bit easier than done while camping. What if I told you that food could be prepared and cooked at home, and then made ready in minutes when camping?!


Camping with a tent isn’t always quick

Camping setup timesWe purchased an Oztent several years ago, and absolutely love it. You may know them as the ’30 second tent’, which is pretty well true, once you have the bag on the floor.
