Many of the equipment lists are missing an essential item, a "dry bag" for use in showers. You will be taking EVERYTHING into the shower -- you, your dirty clothes, your clean clothes, your towel, your shower items like soap and luffa. I have been in showers as small as about 30" x 30". Water sprays everywhere. A single hook for clothes is normal, and I have had showers where there was no hook. You will want to put everything in the bag while you shower, and the bag must be sufficiently waterproof to keep its contents dry under a potentially direct assault by water. I have had good success with a GoLite stuff sack, which is extremely light, roomy, and has a drawstring that closes it very well. It is made of nylon that repels water very well in a shower setting. I am sure there are many such products out there.
