Pretty sure they sell a toilet flange cap at home depot.

I wonder if the " stuff " composts better, outside in the elements, or buried.

Can we get back to the topic at hand and start another thread on internet etiquette?

Final question, does one need to always sit to go #1 - is that preferred?

Can't speak to Nature's Head, but you can stand for #1 with an Airhead. The bowl slopes towards the pee drain and the flap over the composting section is air and liquid tight. I give it a spritz with a spray bottle of diluted vinegar and it's good to go!

At Home Depot/Lowes in plumbing they sell a plug for pic pipe (it is used for testing for leaks) you hold it in opening and tighten. One I got has big wing nut, I put on a regular nut so it didn't stick up as far. On water supply, I put on a valve and added a spray hose like on a sink.

Ok, I lied, one more question. I take it that the "trap door" is larger than the trap on a normal RV toilet. So everything always goes down the hole right?

Airhead sells paper liners you put down prior do doing your business (they look like coffee filters). They cost something in the neighborhood of $4 for a pack of 50. They (like TP) go down the hatch when you're done and are composted, too.
