Ow! That was my feelings!: [img.fark.net image 850x478]


that's beautiful. I'm more partial to hot tubs/jacuzzis/hot springs than saunas, be they steam or dry ones.

Meh, every other day alternate bath/shower.  Unless I feel different.  Ache?  Hot bath.

Not where I live. If I get in the shower it's just more likely my neighbor will shank me.

I hear that if you add some soap to hot water and use that on your body, you can kill the germs on your skin. Something called good hygiene. But that's way too scientific for mere mortals to understand.
Next thing you know, the scientists will be telling us that breathing in oxygen is good for your health as well.

I just got out of my 2nd shower of the day, so I'm really getting a kick.

The other month, I was telling a coworker I prefer to use heat packs and hot showers for aches and pains. She looked at me like I was farking Amish.

I would LOVE to go into a hot spring right now. Especially since my tub is so small and shallow that it never covers me.

There's a girl that comes to the coed gym hot tub that always wears thong bikinis.

In my way younger days whenever at a place that had a pool with a jacuzzi next to it, here's what I'd do:

1.  Swim in the pool for a while, then cannonball into the jacuzzi
2.  Sit in the jacuzzi for a while, then cannonball back into the pool

This assumed nobody was in said jacuzzi, of course.  But I loved the shock to the system.  Even as a teen I'd joke that an older person might have a heart attack from the shock.

I have no idea if the shock could do that, but I'm nearing 50 and no way would I do that now.

Also, let me add.............

that is the best. To have a cool pool right next to a jacuzzi.

but a jacuzzi outdoors in the rain, when it's not too heavy a rain, is pretty cool, too. I've done that a few times.

Sitting in a nice natural hot spring until your core body temp goes up is wonderful. It's something
I really haven't gotten from a hot tub or hot bath. Bath water gets cold too fast, and I really haven't
gotten that same, "warm to the bone" feeling in a hot tub. I good sauna in a dry sauna is nice,but
you get all sweaty, you get a shower and then your cool again..

We stayed at a cabin that had a Jacuzzi once. Being in it during a flurry was pretty cool. Getting out sucked.

The only time I've had the good fortune of soaking in a natural hot spring was in Tecopa Hot Springs, in Death Valley. The roof of the building was open to the sky, so at night there was a great view of the stars. (Reason for buildings: nude bathing was required, so there were separate men's and women's pools.)

I also find that a hot bath cools off too fast to help my arthritic knees much when they're really aching, so out comes the electric heating pad.

Last year when I found out that my credit had finally reached the "magic" number to qualify for a VA loan, I immediately jumped on it, and the number one requirement was that it be turnkey ready and have a hot tub. Well, it wasn't exactly "turn key ready", as I found out after I moved in, but it does have a hot tub and a deck around it, and am grateful to be able to go soak in it when I want.

I even sat in it while watching the eclipse last year.
