    That's California's infrastructure problem. I have no qualms about taking a 25 minute shower. Whatever water I 'use' ends up back in the river it came from anyway.

    I justify longer showers by only washing my hair every second or third day. It feels really nice to be in there for awhile, you come out all zen and refreshed - physically and mentally.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    I use this Zodi Extreme Shower for camping but also as a back up to always have a hot shower on stand-by. It pressurizes by the hand pump, works just like a bug sprayer but comes with a propane stove burner and uses 1 lb. propane bottles. It has a temperature gauge sticker on the metal tank that reads to 120 degrees. Only 3 gallon tank capacity but when I've used it, I always shower soaked for 30 seconds, then shut the shower off and lathered up , then turned the shower back on. It usually takes about 30 pumps to power the spray about 2 minutes then another 30 pumps for 2 more minutes to empty it out. I have an advantage in using it as I keep a smooth head and have no hair to wash.

    The propane stove burner can also hold a frying pan or pot.

    Eyes closed whilst in the shower the entire time.

    My hot water heater gives me about 8 minutes of warm water. Not enough.

    My bathroom isn't heated, so it can be hard to make myself turn off the water and get out once I work myself up to getting in. It makes me glad I'm not much of a sweater and only have to bathe a couple of times a week, most weeks.

    I don't worry about wasting water for environmental reasons because this isn't a dry area and my city was built on a decent-sized river. Average water bill (not counting sewage) is $60-something for six people so I don't worry about it on account of the money either. It's worth it.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm so happy the water here is free to all residents, & the tap never goes cold, even if I'm in there til I'm pruny.
    The low-flow showerhead eases the echoes of my hippie friends bitching in my mind about wasting water. Enough for me at least.
    (more than enough.. this is one 'luxury' I don't feel guilty about. Sorry, Earth.. but eh, not really)

    The heat lamp just outside the shower is a pretty nice touch, too, but I only use it on particularly chilly evenings.

    If I tried that, I'd probably punch through the glass shower doors.. I already elbow them pretty hard from time to time by mistake with my eyes open.
