Mostly BBQ or microwave so not much or anything to wash. I do the dishes as I toss them in the firedrum . After the kids grew up and moved away the grey tank never fills up and I don't have to water bushes now either...go figure.
Think we have strayed from the OP question though, whoops.

This is why I carry plenty of drinking/cooking water from home when we go. Just this past weekend I saw the following posted in a campsite restroom: "The notice to boil water has been rescindedĒ. Apparently the camp had a water line break and subsequent repair the previous week. I might wash my hair with suspect water, but Iím drinking H2O (or Diet Mountain Dew) from home!
