Off the grid shower: Nemo Helio Pressure Shower

As much as I like being outdoors there are a few amenities I don’t want to miss out there. One of those things is a shower. Based on some good reviews I recently purchased a portable pressure shower from Nemo. It’s a bit pricey but it works really great: Just fill the bag with water, pump a couple of times and you’ll have a shower to clean yourself, a bike or dishes.

Caprock Canyon State Park Camping

Caprock Canyon is a great State Park in the Panhandle of Texas. We only stayed there for one night on our way north so we couldn’t hike the trails (over 90 miles!) but at least we could check out the official Bison herd of Texas.

Tyler State Park Camping

Tyler State Park is a nice park for an overnight stay if you’re travelling on Interstate 20 through Dallas, TX which is about 90 minutes away. You can spend a morning hiking on 10 miles of trails or in summer enjoy swimming in the lake. The facilities are very clean and the staff is friendly.
