going pee in the middle of the night

This is where the gals can have their very own discussions...

We have a porti potti in our shower which is only used for getting up in the middle of the night for my wife. But I am the one who has to drain and clean it which I hate.

So I am going to make a sitting ledge in the shower, cut a 5 gallon size hole in it and add the bucket and seat like Sharon posted above. And along with a bag, we will use either kitty litter or that stuff used in diapers. It will be easier to empty even when a real emergency hits in the middle of the night. And it should actually take up less room in the shower.

I have a dilemma. She is a camping virgin, is horrified at sharing bathrooms at camp grounds etc.

I am designing an awning at the moment to clip onto the side of the TD to create a living space,
I was thinking of a large bucket with a sealed lid that she could rest a toilet seat on.

I was going to put a bin liner and some kitty litter in it.

Anybody see something wrong with this??

Here is what I made when I had my teardrop. I also used a 6 gallon bucket that I lucked up and was given and bought the toilet seat online (can be found at Walmart in camping section though). It's taller than the 5 gal and was perfect! I used cat litter and sometimes free sawdust. I used this privacy room I made as the potty room. Worked great!. I did have to weight down the bottom hem because of windy conditions. :oops:

I'm saving liquid laundry detergent bottles because the opening is large. I used these when I camped this summer but could my wife use this? She is very willing to go in the woods but this has to happen in a campground.

Tom, get her a "Go-Girl". I bought a couple of these a few years back to use when I have to make a rest-area bathroom stop. It is very useful and will let ladies pee standing up and not sitting on a questionable toilet, or in the woods. And, you don't have to expose much at all. I can't remember what I paid but I think it was about $10 each. :thumbsup:

Thanks CL. I'll see if I can find one of these for her. I was hoping the laundry bottle opening would be OK but the go-girl would make going easier.

Someone suggested to me that 5 gallon bucket with the bottom cut out makes a good latrine seat. They even padd the top edge of the bucket with foam pipe insulation and say it's more comfortable than a toilet seat.

So in a boondocking situation, I'm thinking dig the latrine (putting the dirt just off to the side,) set the bucket over the hole, set up a privacy tent over that (if needed,) leaving the shovel nearby, and then "flush" by shoveling in a little of the dirt. Reverse all of that for teardown.

Has anyone ever tried that? Does anyone foresee any problems?

And another almost similar approach is to use the bucket with biodegradable bags, a seat or foam and kitty litter.
Then bury that. Or replace the kitty litter with another biodegradable product.

Has anyone else noticed that we have 23 pages on a "Crappy" subject? We sure have a lot of crap to talk about. :lol:

In our lifetimes, we spend an average of 92 days sitting on the can, crapper, john, loo, wc, lavatory, privy, porcelain throne, bog, shithouse, superbowl, turd tube, head, think 'n stink... It's only getting the attention it deserves. :)

Know that feeling, am also at that age--the Golden Years--ha! :shock:

My husband, Jim, built our 2nd teardrop (look at our album), and bought a Camp-Inn Tent (zipped doorway, zipped windows on each side) that attaches to my side door of teardrop. It's great for a portable potty, check Cabela's or Walmart--they have some nice selections with accessories. You can always make a potty cover to conceal it. Hope this helps.

We bought the little pop-up tent thing. I put it as close as I can to our trailer without being too close. I use it only during the night. It works great and goes up quickly.
I got it at Bass Pro for $40.00 I think.

No, but I'll admit that it never occurred to me to do that until I was around 22 and my new wife at the time mentioned she did..... :roll:

:thumbsup: Yes women can use them. If you get the cheaper detergent, small bottles the spout pulls out. Free urinal! I have even used them for children.
