Mentioned in dispatches & The Washing Machine

We have had a couple of mentions of late.....1st was on the Overland Live Blog and also a mention on the Solar Sister Facebook site.

Tomorrow is going to be washing day.  A few people have asked what are you doing for washing your clothes....  well the simple answer is what we call the "washing machine" or if you are in the "trade" its a water tight bucket with lid strapped to the roof.  We are using a green washing product that uses soap beads inside a ball.

They are supposed to give you 200 washes....we will keep you posted on how we get on with them....  they are going to have to shift some grime and dust, and after Nick's last oil change (that's oil from the Land Rover NOT Nick) he already needs a new shirt!!!

FOOTNOTE: We (Nick) killed the washing machine in Ghana by reversing over it!!  We got a new one for Xmas in Cameroon.
