How do I do that and avoid freezing?

it will be in the thirties tomorrow morning and the shower looks pretty drafty.

Looking for advice.

Otherwise the the place is close to perfect.

Make sure the water is hot. Dress fast when done.

yeah. That was what I did. My feet are almost no longer numb.

Sure like the place though.

Glad I ended up stopping here even if it wasn’t the plan.

That was going to be my answer, too. Do it fast, build character.

I was was there last May, didn’t have that problem.

The place is great. Just for reference, how’s the heat in the bunkhouse?

Freezing occurs at 32*f. Going to be warmer. You're building it up to something negative. It's a positive experience. The cold water is refreshing making you more adaptable stretching temp comfort zones. Grab some peppermint post shower for the full blast.

Do some jacking jacks or burbees. Pre shower drink something warm possibly something with fresh ginger, cinnamon or cayenne. Let food be your warm shower medicine. AC vinegar and cayenne. Chai tea with a fatty milk such as coconut or goat; lots of warming spices in Chai Tea. Golden tea made of turmeric, pinch of cinnamon, pinch of blk. pepper, ginger powder or fresh ginger root, small pinch of cayenne, and raw honey. If you can find a bit of fresh turmeric and ginger chop and bring to boil. There's your base.

Wow. That’s some mental fortitude. I might rather be dirty or just do a sponge bath.

Ditch your tent and rain jacket for a wk. That shower will be appreciated.
