This is is. THIS is the thing everybody brings up immediately whenever I mention sleeping in a car during a convention. And why not? It's the one thing literally every convention opening ceremonies EVER drills into your head: REMEMBER TO BATHE REGULARLY. It's hard enough to get people to do that when they HAVE a hotel room. How on earth do you bathe if you're out in the back of a van?

It's definitely one of the main problems I had at Ichi but I did take some pretty extreme lengths to get around it this year. Since I went through all the trouble of pinning up (extremely ill-fitting) curtains for more privacy than I had last time, I could bring a big ol' bucket and a bunch of large water bottles and actually for real wash up while I was out there. I couldn't wash my hair (well, I could have, but I wouldn't have been able to DRY it), but otherwise I honestly think I was trying harder to stay clean than half the people in the hotel.

...the problem is, it didn't matter. It was so unfathomably hot and humid and ATLANTA outside all weekend that, no matter how much I washed off, I was gross and sweaty again immediately. Honestly, this is nothing new. Literally the first Conventional Wisdom I ever drew is about this very problem, and I'm sure every other congoer who actually went outside all weekend was faced with this same issue... except THEY all had the option of just NOT GOING OUTSIDE, while I had to spend all night in that grossness. And speaking of which...

You managed to make me imagine shady backroom deals involving improvised bathing facilities. Success?
