Porta-Potty or not?

I found a toilet seat that fits over the rim of a 5gallon bucket and has sanitary liners.It sure works in a pinch!(no pun intended)
I have since put my porta potty in storage.Way too cumbersome for my taste.(no pun intended)
The bucket works well for stowing TP when not in use and comes in handy for other things as well, like dish washing and mopping etc.etc..
If your creative you can find a bucket that matches the color of your basecamp.
Was this helpful?
What are your ideas on basecamp bathrooms?
Regards,
ArveeBob

Not sure I am behind this idea ( no pun intended )

I think a porta potti is a way better option tham a bucket. It is a stealthier and a less aromatic way to transport unpleasant matter, and you won't foul a plastic bag that can't be flushed. I actually think that a porta potti is more conveniant than using my built in commode and black tank, what with slinkies and, dump stations. The idea of washing dishes in the same container that I " sat " on, would trouble me. Would it be feasible to maintain a sufficient level of hygenic practices, and would it be worth it. If you already have a porta potti, I would use that.

So let me make sure I understand...You're using the Poo Bucket to wash dishes in too .


Seriously, sanitary liners aside, I would avoid the double doodie (pun intended) use of the bucket. Plus, the advantage of the porta potty is that you do have some level of odor control above that of an open bucket. I'm all for efficiency, butt (pun intended) if it were me I would stick to the potty.

Oh, and by the way I'm afraid I will have to cancel my invitation for Dinner.


Regards,

Kevin

Let me clear the air here(pun intended)

Have you forgotten what it's like to rough it?
Let's face it Basecamping is slightly better than tenting with a few ammenities.I think that's why we are not considered "real Airstreamers".
And yes doing dishes was meant to be funny!!!!!!!!!!
Butt if you have to ask it was probably in poor taste(pun intended)
Regards,
ArveeBob
P.S.
We don't poo there!Butt if there was an emergency ?

I was once emptying my porta potty at Glencoe campground in the sewer stack.I wish I could say the results were as sanitary as you suggest.
