Default Hygene when Traveling

Yes well , many of us move around this wide brown country in our caravans ,mobile homes etc . Although many of these vehicles have a shower /toilet we do like to make use of the caravan park conveniences . We can meet and greet whilst shaving or indeed showering. A problem often encountered is contracting Tinea from the shower recess. This is an unpleasant fungal affliction usually located in the space between the small toe and it's adjacent member. I have no faith in the oft quoted remedy of urinating over the affected part ,this of course is a personal action and is not carried out by another person.
I have found in my experience a good application of tooth paste does the trick....my personal preference is Mc Leans.

Hi Winchester I too don't like the idea of pissing on my feet, I have enough trouble doing that in my undies after putting the little fella away and zipping up. Though I must say I have not suffered with tinea for 6 or 7 decades now. My mother was put onto Goats milk when I was a 3 year old and had trouble walking etc, The old Goats milk fixed me up very quickly and I have not had trouble since, Goat soap also is a good remedy for this affliction, not mention the odour is much more pleasant as well. Cheers, John.

Oh g'wan, live a little

I'm not sure if it's actually illegal or just ill-advised because of all the biting stinging things (or there's no grass in Oz) but I spend a lot of time bare-foot, and apparently walking through dewy grass is good remedy for foot odor and other maladies.

Some over the road truckers in the USA take traveling hygene to a whole new level. I live near a truck stop and I get sick and tired of seeing gatoraid bottles full of piss lying on the side of the road on the offramps and onramps to the freeway. Jeesh, can't they just hold onto the bottle and dispose of it at the next trash can they see. It's gross,,,,you see these bottles full of yellow liquid and you know right away what it is. They just roll down their window, and toss it out on the ramps where no one can see them. Here's an novel idea! How about throwing it out in the State they live in !!!

I was told the truck driver that hit me back in 05 was talking on the cell phone.Perhaps that was to hide the fact he was trying to wiz in a bottle at 55mph?

Hello Mr Goose.
Are you sure you haven't got foot in mouth disease?

Cheers Scott

For fungal infection, try salt water. Yes, go to the beach and have a swim in the ocean. One swim might knock it back temporarily but one or more swims daily for a couple of weeks will really kill it. It has worked for me.

Yes well I dont have personal experience but I would assume that it enables one to firmly hold the poor sheep.
How the Hell did we change the subject? My original question was regarding the use of a good brand of tooth paste. It would seem that I alone use this remedy..
Putting aside the sheep ,Kiwi's are the worlds best Rugby players.

Now I'm in my early 60's and have been taken and still go camping/caravaning all my life and in caravan parks. In all this time I have taken no precautions for any issues that may be contracted in public showers and have never had an issue. Maybe it is something you are prone to or you do not wipe your feet dry properly or maybe simply bad luck which then makes me having a heap of good luck for not contracting the problem.

Gees your mind works in mysterious ways Mr Goose. I mean; after spotting a pair or velcro gloves, who in their right mind would think.....ah all the better to grip sheep with (while knowing about gumboots and sheep). You don't holiday in Yorkshire and NZ do you Mr Goose? I mean, you seem to know what to do to sheep, how to do it and where to do it.
If I saw velcro gloves I'd think they were for getting the excess hair out of Pongo the Pooch's thick black coat.
But each to their own.

So who's going to tell Mr Goose about this post? Come on. Hands up.

Cheers Scott (the invisible)
PS: I hope none of our NZ friends take offence to Mr Goose's comments.
