Why even take the chance of not getting accepted into the area you wish to see. Clean up first. Good personal hygiene should be an accepted rule of thumb when you are interacting with others in any situation. Have a good day.Hi Mike,
My concern is that when traveling I might be say stealth camping or the equivalent for periods of time and thus not have access to a shower. Or let's say I might bike in the morning and arrive at a destination mid-day without having had a chance to clean up. The choice may in the latter situation be one of seeing the site or proceeding to say a camp site with showers far ahead, thereby preventing me from visiting the tours attraction and defeating the purpose of riding to the site. Thanks!
