That's what happens when first world problems get mixed up with third world problems

There's no freebies in this county so I say just poach a hot tub and take soap with you.

Can't the OP just walk into one of the hotels at the base of Breck for example and help himself to a shower in the pool locker room?

Aquire an old steel bath tub from the local land fill. Prop it up on bricks outside and build a small fire underneath it. Fill it full of snow (presuming you're in the mountains) and jump in when its at a bath able temp.

Like to shower instead? Grab one of those things hikeswithdogs suggested, or go the ghetto version and find a couple of 20L paint pales, knock about 12-20 2mm holes within a 5inch area in the bottom of one of them, hang the pale in a tree. Get all your wash cloth and showering stuff ready by the tree, heat approx 10L of water and tip it into the pale - then get under it quick...use a construction pallet as a shower mat and maybe (depending on how far out in the wilderness) put up some form of shade cloth (also aquireable from a land fill or jumble seller) around it so that people can't see you showering.

Other places to get a cheap shower - YMCA, Public Baths etc etc

Besides going to hotels and stealing showers and continental breakfasts the only other way to get a free shower in summit county is go to dillon FIRC. They will direct you to a church that has free showers wed and fri 1-4pm by downtown dillon. I hate churches and will continue to bathe at the starbucks/subway bathrooms.

I was living in LA for awhile working at a starbucks and doing stand up comedy at night. one day I said fuck it and left for colorado. when getting picked up at the airport my roommate and long time friend told me that the guy we were renting from had a heroin addiction, but he was going to be clean cause my buddy talked him into quiting his job as a car salesman and he would be too broke to buy drugs. WTF was my response. Heroin addicts will not stop herion if they run out of money. Basically I lived in Dillon Valley for 2 weeks with the junkie. One day I was locked out and pounding on the door. He was just sitting there spaced out while I was screaming at him to open the door/ it was time to leave i was ready to kick this kids ass. My other roomie and I were going to buy a trailor and park it on national forest land, when I remembered that there are cabins in the woods that not a lot of people go to. so we went camping in the coldest part of this winter early-mid december. One night my roomie woke me up and told me that he was cold. I gently told him "Put wood on the fire you pussy." When light hit I looked at him and he was grey looking suffering from hypothermia, we left the cabin to find something a little warmer... his car. I lived in a car and had a fucking roommate, once a cop found us and could not believe two people were sleeping in a car. Currently I live in a nice pad and i dont smell like a wild animal. This was a crazy part of my life that took some years off of it. I have one picture of the cabin and I but im not sure if im ready to post nudes of myself.
