At the risk/disregard of sounding like a hippie, not showering isn't what causes most the problems, its western clothing. As it turns out, creating warm, dark, damp spaces full of decomposing organic material, part of which is fecal matter and urine, might just cause foul odors and bacterial growth. Crazy, I know, but true.

We need to bring back more sensible fashions, like the loin cloth.



P.S. Atilla the Hun and flashinglights, why not just buy a solar shower? They cost like 7 bucks, are pretty light and can be rolled up, and are designed to heat up fast.

but, I don't think catching on the fly in a loin cloth is going to turn out so well, or be very fun.

yeah the lion cloth may encourage wild critters to show too much love too, if you get my drift... plus lion just seems too warm in the summer.

Well, you might be a little cooler if you wear a loin cloth rather than a lion. The only cooler outfit would be a hip cloth or nudity.

I didn't figure there would be any takers. I just wanted to point out that the need for showers is not because of the human body.

Blunts in a bubble-bath, baby.
Ya know, I think I'll try that this weekend. My mom's got one of those awesome jaccuzzi tubs. The thing is huge! That's the only time I enjoy baths. The bathtub at my house is too fucking small to bubble bath in so it's only showers for me.

I don't like taking a shower too often,
1. I'm lazy and by time I think about taking a shower I'm too tired to stand there and go through that whole routine.
2. If I only take a shower like twice a week, it feels soooooooooo much better than if you take one every day.
3. Clean hair sucks. It sticks up every direction and doesn't do what I want it to.

Maybe it's because of my notorious affinity for pornography, but my fellow travel-friends constantly ask me if I've ever ran into train-porn. I can't say I ever have, but I also can't say I've ever really looked.

What's this train vampire movie you speak of?

Well, train sex is common. But its all Japenese transit. Never seen freight train porn. However, to save the innocent heteros out there, realize that if you try to look up "train sex", you are going to learn about gay orgies.

I haven't personally seen it yet, but my friend who works in a porn arcade told me that there's a train-hopping porn movie on sellyoursextape.com. He said there's also a few rainbow traveler couples on there as well.

Not a bad way to make a buck w/ your road mamma if you ask me. Just gotta have a video camera.

Sorry for this being way off-topic...

Always shower after performing in a prono, I guess is the moral here.

I used to be a train hopper, now I am a train humper. Anyhow.. shower always...

and @dirtyRig I think it is called "Wonderlost" or something I just saw some shitty trailer for it at some point, it might not even be a vampire movie but, it looked like it sucked.

I just saw an old friend of mine, he is this crazy chemist type. He bought me this stuff... essentially Chlorophyll in a bottle. The benefits are merely that it is a deodorizer that you ingest. He said he experimented with it not too long ago, just to see whether or not it worked and went five weeks without showering or wearing deodorant and no one around him noticed any sort of body odor from him. I suppose I will try it, for the hell of it (but I will still take regular showers).




Chlorophyll? more like BOREOPHYLL!

If you eat hot dogs, smoke a cig while downing a six pack after a blunt while tripping on shrooms in the shower even better.

I went on a all day hike and that evening soaked in a tub with a beer in hand. The perfect ending to a perfect day. :drinking:

I like to get clean and it does help to hitch, but not everyday. I'm growing my hair out longer now (winter) and it feels and does better when wearing it naturally without washing for a week. It's a pain in the ass to manage right after washing. :thebird:

As for your junk and feet, yup you need to keep those clean. Duh. Last 2 place you want an infection. Bird baths for those areas are a must while traveling and squating.
