Don't use fabric softener on towels, over time their absorbency will decline.



That's all I got.

You weigh 130 or 330, 330 takes a bigger better towel? On the other hand paper towels work good for 130. For the record, I weighed 126 in college.

I've noticed that. Thus my search for a new towel.

"More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with."--D.

Now I understand why I always hated to share towels with my wife and my secret lust for fresh towels.

Starting tomorrow ill demand a fresh clean towel every day!
In fact ill buy a set with my name engraved.

But, I must also say that I'm not into bathrobes... Except for the one I got in an hotel on turkey once.

At home? Or on the road?

Microfiber is great on the road, but a plush cotton terrycloth feels better to me, but only works at home due to bulk and drying time.

Microfiber - I like the REI house brand Multitowel, lite or regular, s-xxl sizes. Come with a hanging loop to dry.

PS: If you live in one of those places with high humidity - nothing works unless you've got refrigerated a/c.

Problem with microfiber and camping is that if you drop said towel on the grass (or it falls off the clothes line) you will spend the better part of the afternoon picking off leaves and debris. Just back from the Salem rally and I made a note to bring a proper terrycloth towel next year.
