“The most memorable days usually end with the dirtiest clothes.”
So how will we tackle laundry while overlanding?
- Wash Bucket approach – A bucket with a lid that Tulak will ‘agitate’ while underway will be our first approach. Our trial run on Tuesday to Nelson worked wonders for underwear and socks.
- The coin-operated procedure – If coin-op shops are available we’ll use them for sheets, towels and larger items.
- The Laundry Lady – In the past when we traveled in both Costa Rica and Ecuador laundry service provided by a local entrepreneur worked well. Items were bagged and weighed to calculate the price which was most reasonable in both countries. A couple of hours later we arrived to pick up our clothes – washed, dried and folded.
