    Not quite off topic....
    But I remember going camping and we used to have a canvas bag filled with water that used to hang outside the car in front of the radiator.
    Where-ever we stopped, we had ice cold water.
    I met some crazy people.... They made me their leader.

    IIRC, we had a great canvas fridge with the same logo as our water bags ? Little wooden tap. Worked well keeping the Klim mix cold for the day.
    There is no task too simple for some people to complicate !

    When we take water on the roof, the tank is either properly full or completely decanted in one go into Frontrunner 27l bags to be kept inside on the floor.
    The idea is to leave them empty for the trip up and around Ai-ais as well as Richetrsveld. We will have the normal drinking water available(Lowdown in the car) I will only fill them once we venture into "wild" camping territory south from Hondeklip baai. I will fill them there. 60l should be enough for 3 people showering and washing dishes.
