HOW ABOUT PERSONAL CARE? (Tent Camping)
Another thing to think about, if you are tent-camping: showering and clothes laundering. If you are staying in a state or national park and there are showers available, good! But many public parks are not equipped. So you are going to have to choose an alternative:
Go dirty. (Most people don't like that one.)
Stay at a motel every 2-3 nights and enjoy a real bed and a good shower.
Find a campground every few nights that does have shower facilities, and make sure to take advantage. Private campgrounds usually have a shower building!
Another might be a truck stop, which usually will sell you a shower ($10-15 each unless you buy all your fuel at that brand and build up points – not easy with car tanks, though truckers find it very easy!).
Yet another choice is to stay with a friend or family member along the way. Just make sure to do something nice for your friend or family member, so they won't think you're staying there for the free bed and free shower! With any public shower, wear some sort of pool or shower shoes.
Laundromats are often in small towns along the way, and truck stops have them too. Some motels have them, as well. Bring coins or at least cash to exchange for coins, and for purchasing laundry soap. (An alternative to that would be to carry laundry soap in a small plastic dollar-store container. I do that to this day, staying in hotels, as I prefer a certain brand.)
