Have you ever tried to fold those bloody shower tents?????
For those who have one, a folding competition could be an idea.

WimmensWheel changing. On your own 4by. No overalls provided. The prize is a hot shower. Heather's suggestion

I'd love to enter this comp but I think it would be impossible with only one hand working. Perhaps Chicka could buy me a rattle gun.

Rob, just tell Charlie, Mother's day is coming up and with a bigger truck to come........ ;-0)))

F'loosie, I thought that would overcome by the offer of the shower. I could hold the soap and shower head just adjacent to Kath. LOL You ready Rob?
Cheers,

Rubbish - it's as easy as. They virtually fold themselves up :-)
The way shown in the photo will definitely cause problems.

Yes, I've seen other people do it so easily but mine has a mind of its own.
Perhaps the comp could be with my tent - and the winner gets it.Image Could Not Be Found

The instructions sewn into the bag also cause problems...

Perhaps I'm giving away my strategic advantage for the competition......... but it's very easy if you ignore the instructions! A while back someone on EO suggested an alternative method and that is to grab it near the top and twist it as if you're screwing it into the ground. Works every single time in seconds.

Wish I was going now, just for the shower tent comp. I think I would come close to winning.

Easy as

If you don't care for the enviroment, you will find that they burn beautifully, & the bag that it is SUPPOSED to fit in is also excellent heating material even if it does create a bit of smoke, but well worth the exercise as you will never ever ever ever have to attemp the impossible ever ever ever again!!
The only other alternative if you are a greenie is to hand it back to the manufacturer with a jar of vaseline. LOL & cheers.

They are cheap enough to BBB (Bash - Burn - & Bury) so I carry 3 - 4 and treat the suckers as disposable.

If you cant fold one of those up, I can imagine the arm flailings you must do simply wiping your bum.
And that is where you should be doing the "D-B&B"
As noted, just get the thing folded together, fall on it and the rest is a "POP".
Had one fer years, best shower/dunny tent ever. Just have to straddle the "drop area"
