Down in the basement of the Hanover Rec Center there are showers and DIY laundry. It’s only a few minutes walk from the edge of the woods by the Dartmouth sports fields.
Its a really great service they allow to go on. The hall is filled with notes of appreciation from hikers passing through.
I had washed my sleeping bag some time back and it just hasn’t been right since. Heading into The White Mountains in September, conditions are likely going to start getting cold.
I found a method that might correct the sleeping bag situation, see the video below.
Basically in place of tennis balls I knotted up my socks and the loaner clothes the rec center provided so they could beat the bag up while tumbling on no-heat fluff dry.
