3. Build a DIY Shower
One of the most unpleasant things about backwoods camping is being unable to take a shower. However, you can make a simple, solar-heated makeshift shower with a large jug, watering can, chain-link, shackle and a braided poly rope. If you’re not adept at doing a bit of MacGyver-like DIY, however, you can usually pick up a solar-heated portable shower cheaply enough at a camping supply store.
