    Probably 4-5 days when I was in the Air Force on TDY to an F-15 Eagle crash site for comm and cleanup. It was a messy scene where a Lt Col and a Captain died in the mountains of McDermitt, Nevada

    7 days in the final battle exercise in the finnish defense forces.
    Worst part is that you're sharing a tent with ten other guys that don't shower either ;)

    Going back a few years
    I had a chick who wanted me to smell manly by not taking a shower before i went over to her house
    holy smokes it turned her on big time when i smelled like cut grass and mulch mixed with gas and man smell.

    About 2weeks at the army during some exercise. After like a week I had to use some drinking water to my hair as it was starting to itch a lot. About 0.5L or something similar.

    If you are not allowed to light a fire outside tent as it's very easy to sport or you dont have time wash yourself as you have to be able to defend your position at any time.

    3 days or something. Had a rough few weeks and all I wanted was a little time for myself. 3 really really lazy days of doing **** all.

    Sure, but how tempting is that when it's below -20c? We were actually supposed to ice bathe but they couldn't get a proper hole in the ice on the lake as the ice was simply too thick.

    Still, no shower doesn't mean you don't wash. Hands/face/armpits/private parts were washed daily, haha.

    Edit: also, I'll add that the feeling I had after taking a shower when the drill was over is perhaps the best feeling I've ever felt. It was simply amazing!
