Down in the Linville river! I think you're out of luck, I can't think of anyplace that is anywhere near there where you'll get a shower.

Get some Dr. Bronner's soap and bathe in the creek!

Peppermint, biodegradable goodness!

The hike back up from Linville River will completely negate the shower. Its steep and long. Shower your insides with beer and he will forget about how much he stinks.

Tell him everyone on the intardwebs thinks his best bet is to just stay at home and shower. He'll be nice and comfy there.

Agreed. I have a stone wall, sandbags and plywood sheet, too, and I'm squeaky clean. Tongue

There might be a YMCA in Morganton. That or a hotel might be his only options.

It's the Lady J! Women I knew on a sea kayaking trip loved that thing!

Hey OP, tell your partner to use this: http://www.goldbond.com/

Gold is for wussies, the Blue is stronger. Shower in a bottle.
