A smaller eco footprint

itchingforhitching

It’s only when we come home from a trip that I realise how little we lived with on the road. No dishwasher and just a tiny sink in which the dishes must be washed really fast, as the sink plug sometimes leaks. A 9kg gas bottle seems to last us 3 to 4 months for all our cooking and when free camping our hot water as well. We tend to cook lighter faster meals on the road and eat healthier. Whereas at home in the cold weather we do tend to cook hearty casseroles and cakes.

To conserve water, showers become ‘Pommie style’, wet yourself down, slap on the shampoo, scrub what must be scrubbed, then wash off. Repeat for the conditioner. Even when we’re in caravan parks and on ‘town’ water I have to stop myself from doing the stop, start showering routine as it just becomes a habit.
