So, it is official, Spring is here today, and so it only stands to reason that I switch, officially into Spring/Fall Mode.
Part of that means that I am once again buying my water from the grocery store. I do this because I have faith that I can keep water liquid in my trailer.
During Winter Mode I fill bottles of water at work and only bring home what I need for that night/weekend.
This way I am fairly sure that I can keep the water liquid overnight. This will usually mean me sleeping with the bottles of water in my sleeping bag with me and my electronics.
This is because my body heat will radiate out and keep the: bottles of water, laptop phone and iPad from freezing overnight.
So with the weather turning warmer I have put the sleeping bag away (again) and I can actually sleep alone in the bed which I can once again spread out in.
Another perk of being in Spring/Fall Mode is that I can have my Jug Showers again. This is where I have a shower with a juice pitcher full of warm water.
In essence you stand in the shower/bathtub, pour a bit of water over yourself to get yourself wet.
Then you lather up your hair, scrub your bod with soap before rinsing off, starting with your hair and working on down.
This is not quite the same as a nice hot shower and you are certainly not lingering in the shower but you can get clean with two litres of water.
This also beats having the old “Bachelor’s Bath” that I have to do all winter long. Again, I keep adjusting what I am doing in concert with the weather and temperature.
This is just another way for me to keep looking on the positive as I rush down this last stretch to Total Debt Freedom.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
