Outdoor shower - something to stand on?

Any suggestions for something to stand on while showering outside? Bath mat doesn't work well. A grate type thing to stand on would be great but I can't find one. Maybe something like a crate that isn't so high off the ground?

Fold a towel and throw it down on the grates.

You could use some anti-fatigue mats, like below:

Best-Stepģ Anti-Fatigue Flooring, Interlocking Mats with Diamond Plate Texture, Pack of 4 - 1031936 | Tractor Supply Company

If they're not thick enough for you, you could use rubber horse stall mats. I bought one of these and cut it up to make jack leveling pads & tire leveling strips. I have seen smaller ones in Tractor Supply that you wouldn't have to cut to size for your bath mat.

Rubber Horse Stall Mat, 4 ft. x 6 ft. - 2219003 | Tractor Supply Company

We use two of these rubber door/utility mats from Menards. Very inexpensive. Great for rinsing sand off at the beach. I've also seen bigger fatigue mats at SAMs but they are a more expensive option

Those blocks are only 1" thick. I have seen thicker poly blocks that are used under the FW rear stabilizer jacks.

Does anyone know where to get them?

Gotta ask. Are you people actually taking baths outside or are you just washing things off? I have always wondered what the outside shower was for.

For their outdoor shower, said they worked great.
