This contraption is something Tom rigged up a number of years ago so that we could have water during the winter. It only partway does what you'd expect. For example it does allow you to flush the toilet. And....well I guess that's it. Which is still better than lugging buckets of lake water up the hill! This thing is powered by our boat battery so every time you flush the battery runs the pump motor and people in the next county will know that you've just used the toilet. We have to use bottled water for drinking, coffee, brushing teeth, etc. If you're wondering about bathing - my answer is hahahaha! So after three days I was really ready to be home if only just to take a long hot shower.
So you KNOW I wasn't happy to slippy slide home Sunday afternoon in heavy slow traffic. Worried that if we crashed the EMS and hospital personnel would think that we had terrible hygiene! Do you know how hard it is to wash your hands in a coffee mug??? And gross!!
Anyways, we had a great time. We were extra grateful to make it home alive. And it's been a long time since a shower felt sooo good! By the way, the weather was beautiful on Saturday - I'll try and post photos from then later!
