Shower time

Where does a van dweller go in Lincoln City, Oregon, to get a shower? Ordinarily, truck stops are the answer, but there aren't any along Highway 101. There are showers at state campgrounds, but paying for a campsite just to take a shower is more than I want to splurge.

Fortunately, anyone with $3.25 can use the showers at the city's recreation center. For an extra 50¢ they'll loan you a towel. You can even rent a swimsuit if you're suddenly in the mood to use the pool and hot tub.

The laundromat I wrote about before is on the other side of the block, next to a fresh caught seafood joint. Clean yourself, clean your clothes, have some crab.
