Tag Archives: Outdoor Showers

Among the many discouraging aspects of the transition from summer to fall, dismantling my outdoor shower has the greatest impact on my daily routine.  Starting in early April, I study the forecast for low temperatures each night.  As soon as I am convinced the lows will no longer drop below freezing, I turn on the water, screw in the shower head, and re-install the valve. After re-assembling a fresh assortment of shampoo, soap, razor, shaving cream, and mirror, I proceed to take every single shower outdoors, until about now when I once again start to worry about cold nights freezing the exposed pipes of my special place.  Rain or shine, hot or cold, once I am in the water, the weather has no bearing on the experience.
