Well out here in Arizona, the big thing is escaping the heat and heading up north during the summer. So I guess that would make a lot of us the "find a nice campground" types.

This is cheaper than using a blue tank for FW and safer too and when traveling takes up less space.. I have been using this for 8+ years now

Seann45 - that looks very interesting. Many CG water sources are just tanks that are filled and then gravity drained...which means they don't have great water pressure. It looks like this bag needs some water pressure behind the filling to fully expand it?

I have been using this 45 gal water bladder for years and am pleased with it:

We carry two 5-gallon JERI-CANs for fresh water and two AQUA-TAINERs for gray water.
I also carry one of those two wheeled folding totes that makes it easy if the water source is close by... My OFF-ROAD POPUP trailer has the cassette potty so that is another 6-gallon waste tank that fills up on us and needs dumped somewhere...

Alot of places allows us to pour our gray water around the trees. Some don't...

Usually where we camp is a central located primitive out house and most often they have a water spigot with them..

So we just do the carry the waste water to the primitive out house and pour it down the toilet and bring back fresh water...

We always spot out where the water is located going in to our off-road camping spots...


Our setup for capturing gray sink water. When one container fills up I move the hose the other container...

Back in the late 60s and early 70s when we was living in the greater Phonix areas we used to head for the high country all the time . It was JEEPS and util trailers back then and TENT Camping... Lots of good times had when three or four go along together much like this GOOGLE image photo..



Nothing better than waking up to the red rocks around Sedona or Jermone in the morning sun...

Always had to have a good PLAN B for water...

X2!

Mine is about 12 years old. I flush it with a clorox/water mix at the beginning of each season. I have a 12v pump (about $50 at Northern Tool) , powered off my trailer hitch connection, to power the pump, so rather than depending on gravity to move the water, I pump it to where I need it. The nice thing is that the bladder rolls up to about the size of a small couch pillow.

I pump mine also as the bladder is too heavy for the roof of my pickup.

No it wont Dave.. but a 12V RV water pump will speed things up

Same thing here. As a kid that was my job to fill 3 times a day. When my son is old enough it will become his job.
