Some items for car camping travel

I recently bought some items for my next car camping adventure.  I'll include images and links that have reviews of the items.

I hope to strap this five-gallon shower to the luggage rack on top of my car so it can heat up during the day, then use it for showering when I stop in a secluded location.

Here is where to buy this Summer Shower.

I also bought a large vertical tent-like apparition to take showers in (it's sorta shaped like a port-a-potty, only tapered at the top and not quite as big).  But I might not bring that with me on my next trip.  I'm thinking the hassle factor of setting it up to take a shower might not make it worth it, though it would shelter me from the elements.  I can probably just take showers wearing shorts if I'm in a public place.

Here is a rice cooker/crock pot that operates off of the car's cigarette lighter outlet:

Here's where to buy this Car Crock Pot.

Speaking of the cigarette outlet, here is a device that converts from a cigarette lighter's output to USB:

Here's where to buy this Car USB Port.

I'll report on how well these devices work as I use them.


  1. The crockpot didn't work at all. Total waste of money. Didn't even power on. The USB lighter adapter was great and I still use it. The solar shower worked, it heated up well when strapped to my roof. But I never used it.
