I would imagine you are standing on a bed of crushed rock with a slight slope. There are battery powered pump/showerheads that you insert into a 5 gallon bucket and hold to spray.

Crushed rock would be more permanent than the pallet.

But also consider standing on a 1 inch foam gardening pad. My mom with arthritis uses one in her shower at home and while traveling.

It's a good idea but everything done at the boondocking property is by manual labor only. Eventually we might get around to muscle-fighting several hundred pounds of local stone to a shower area, but so far, we've devoted all of our rock-totin' efforts to lining the path down to the lake, so that we won't trip over tree roots.

Right!? Anything else would be uncivilized

I suggest this... you can make it so that it can be taken apart (or collapsible) so that you can take it with you and not have to leave it in the property.

Found perfect storage area for our 2x 24"x36"' industrial rubber mat and outdoor shower mat. Self draining & heavy duty & easy to shake/clean/wash off debris. Though almost too thick & too heavy to carry in a small AI, but I cant find anything of same sort that is lighter (that isn't flimsy). Also doubles as anti-fatigue mats and tire traction mats. Amazing mats, almost indestructible

My GT stack

These bins came from Office Depot in white. The deepest one, just above the desk, is magazine sized. The others each have 3 sections.

They are some sort of pressed white material. I sprayed them with heavy coats of Rust-Oleum Universal Metallic Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray paint. When this paint is heavily applied, the result is an attractive hammered appearance. The heavy coats of paint really protect the bins.

Hi Alex,

I have found this material to be great to make a mat for my wet bath. The extra has been put to use in my laundry room. Thin, lightweight, configurable, and colorful! I am about to buy some more to make an outdoor mat (thanks to your idea you posted)!

BUGSBUNNY - that Dri-Dek has nice choice of colors. Please post results of how they hold up as outdoor mat . Even though I already have these heavy duty rubber ones, I may buy a box of the Dri-Dek if your usage proves them to hold up as outdoor mat service. I can still use the heavy rubber ones at home and carry the bright colored Dri-Dek in AI. Their size makes easier to store and nice that they interlock.

Yet another first world problem for consideration by you fine folks.

I have to keep a LARGE volume of both Canadian and American coinage within arm's reach in my vehicle cab. What small device do I use to keep all those coins from two countries (a) handy and (b) segregated?

I have both EZPass and EZTag, so I'm covered from Texas to Maine on toll roads. But many places still use coin parking meters, and I often have to feed TWO adjacent meters to accommodate an oversized van.

Canada, of course, has a higher emphasis on coinage, and I need my stash of both loonies and twoonies to feed both parking meters and laundry facilities. Plus, none of the American e-tags work on Canadian toll roads. I have to pay those tolls with cold hard cash.

HOW many times have I held up the line as I jumped up out of the driver's seat to go rummaging around in the back of the van to retrieve my coin collection? Too many times. I need a good storage device that will work well in the cab.

Here's the current Canadian pile. The American pile is similarly-sized.

I use medication bottles - they at least work on the American coins - haven’t tried them on Canadian coins. Super easy to open at the toll booth! For quarters, I use M&M mini containers - great for laundromats

Something like this might be an option. Stylish and roomy, fits in a cup holder but might stand up on its own.Click image for larger version

I use a small, flat storage container from a sliced lunch meat package. They're fairly small, easy to get into, and when I had under-seat storage, it worked perfectly. Not sure where I'm going to put it in the Interstate cab yet though.

Coin Tubes

Coin tubes come in a variety of sizes and materials. I like these square ones because they are made with a plastic that tends to contain the rattle noise and because they are square they don't roll around. Also, the caps fit with a positive motion and satisfying snugness.

FYI. The Canadian coins fit also. The container is about 1.25 in diameter and 3.5 in tall (both measurement a bit over). Very common size that any drug store would have. I get the with the child proof lock. Sometimes I use the easy open top - it is a bit shorter.

These have tons of uses including toothpicks, gum, some thicker liquids upright, bandaids, paper lips, etc.

FYI, these medication bottles will hold 34 $1 coins ... and 37 if one uses the expansion space in the child proof lid

Nope. Does not fit loonies or twoonies.

To date, I've used zip-lock bags. One of which split at a critical moment and dumped coins all over the cab, all over the ground at the toll both... ugh (I told you it was a first world problem).

I've also been guilty of walking into a laundry with the wrong country's bag of coins in hand. It's inefficient.

The issue with "normal" coin holders is that nobody sane carries that much change around in their daily activities - it's like a pound or more. So the commercial offerings of coin purses are mostly too small and not strong enough. They'll split open from the weight.

This is a possibility - a pair of these, which are larger like wallet-sized, one bright red for Canada and blue for America. That way I'm less likely to screw up en route to the laundry.

And I could potentially hang them on the MOLLE seat back organizer.

I like those!! I'm going to measure the "slot" that is present in the left hand size of the T1N dash. There's a little cubby there which I have always under-utilized. Whether it's coin holders or something else, I have never decided what piece of gear to assign to that space. I worry about stuff rolling out of the open end. But maybe square coin holders, if they would fit, would go nicely there.

I can't measure today because our van is now in storage. We are not likely to be hit by the impending Hurricane Barry, but there's about a 25% chance that we are going to get a crap-ton of rain from it. So our Interstate has been put up for now.

I ended up going with these - bought one in red, one in blue, same brand from the same seller on the same order. For reasons beyond comprehension, they could not ship on the same day, and so I only have the "American" one so far.

I like the coin tubes, but if they were placed on their sides here, with the scorching temperatures that we must endure (up to about 107 degrees inside the van on a GOOD day), I worried that the plastic might soften, the tops might pop off, and aaaaalll that change would be all over me, the floor, and the ground.
