No access to a shower or water for that matter? Depending on where you are you might be able to make use of nearby plants to at least smell and feel a little cleaner. My favorite plants (and those I've actually tried first hand) are creosote (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larrea_tridentata), juniper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juniper) and pawpaw (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asimina). There's no real trick to using the stuff, you just find it and cut off a few branches and toss them onto a fire. Let the smoke run over your body but try not to catch your ass on fire. Creosote will actually kill bacteria and some parasites. Not sure about juniper and pawpaw but I sure smell and feel a lot cleaner afterwards. It also tends to ward off flying insects.

Also, please be responsible if you do try this. Don't rape the surrounding flora. Take enough for your needs and nothing more. Also make sure your fire is well and truly dead when you move on.

If anyone knows of other plants that serve a similar purpose when burned feel free to add them. Also! With Juniper you can suck/chew on it and it feels as though you've given yourself a good toothbrushing. Helps alleviate dragon breath in the morning.

..and your boots melted? :p

ROFL - have spent a few nights in front of the fire and woken up by someone grabbing another friends feet out of the fire LOL. Same guy too for a couple years in a row. He never knew it when he woke up in the morning and was "researching" his boots as to what was wrong with them, hehe

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
