There can't be many of them left. Especially ones that can still drive. If he was 18 years old in 1945, he'd be 91 today.

There's no right or wrong. Do what you are comfortable with.

I'm 62, have no major health issues and have been camping regularly since I was 10.

I have never sprayed down a water spigot with bleach before connecting.
I don't wear gloves.
I've rinsed my sewer hose with the drinking water hose on occasion. (no contact)
I've eaten dinner on hundreds of picnic tables, logs and rocks.
I've drank from the stream (downstream to boot) and I let my dog lick my face on occasion.

I don't plan on changing now.

I'm with you 5picker. Some of the people here would absolutely die if they ever had to work on a farm, if they didn't go bankrupt buying disposable gloves first.

But have you ever told people you were a banjo player and pulled out a 6 string banjo???? It's like me playing bass and pulling out a pick.

That is probably the cleanest that picnic table has been in years.

He drives a Sunseeker 3010DS, and flat tows a red jeep. Disney had him do colors one evening.

Precisely. I met a couple this past summer. They rode bicycles from Kentucky to Niagara Falls and back. He was over 60. I thought I accomplished something riding 20 miles.

Same here. Do it right and even the hose is cleaner than things you encounter along your trip. Public rest areas come to mind.

For the germophobes, use the gloves, spray everything with a water/bleach solution, then flush endlessly with water.

Then go touch a door knob on a door used by the general public.

As for the picnic table ever being clean, Haha. Haven't seen a clean one yet. Birds seem to love them for aerial target practice.

BTW, people who were raised in sterile environments seem to suffer from all kinds of allergies. I grew up on a farm and have a "PhD in Manure" (piled higher and deeper). Countless wheelbarrows hauled out of the milking barn twice a day. More than once got splashed or had a well coated tail swing ad give me a "cow poo mustache."

That was 60 years ag and still going strong. Just washed up (and often changed clothes) before dinner.

Lastly, offended by a dog being washed on a picnic table? Don't ever walk on city streets in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, or any other city with a large homeless population. That pop on the sidewalks is NOT from dogs.

If anyone thinks that a doorknob used by the general public is somehow less sanitary than a sewer hose that just emptied a black tank, I donít want to shake their hands. Ever.

If the outside of your sewer hose gets dirty you need a new hose!
If you're sticking your hands inside the hose, you're doing something very wrong!

Studies show actually shopping cart handles and dirtier than our sewer hose is......... or anything in a public bathroom......... ever notice how few people wash their hands after using the bathroom........
