I trust you are taking the cap off...



Although it sounds like the former alternative would provide plenty of roughage...

[didn't I have something useful to contribute somewhere 'round here? ]

For me I think its the lack of activity that I normally get at home. Driving for hours and relaxing when you get to your destination is what gets me I think.

Then you could try to at least drink 1 bottle of water a day for the week before the trip to be use to the different minerals or lack of minerals and chemicals (fluoride, chlorine, ect.) in the water.

It may be psychological, and tied to a perceived lack of privacy in the Airstream. Can you use the public facilities at a campground? It gives you a walk to get there, too!

One word, fiber, it moves things. Less processed foods, i.e. white flour, white sugar; but rather more whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. Easier said than done at times, but well worth it. We keep bran muffins and honey on the counter when in the road, or trail. And of course the old standby...prunes.

One more item worth noting. We eat five times a day. Not three big meals of breakfast, lunch, and supper. But three light meals supplemented with grazing/snack events. Its fairly simple...We get hungry, we eat. Never getting to a "famished state" which leads to BIG meals. The eat as you go habit keeps us on an even metabolism and helps minimize most weight fluctuation concerns.

Surprised no one has mentioned coffee!
I had a similar regularity problem when I hurt my back and was on painkillers.
What I would do is get 2 XL tim hortons coffees, let them cool down to chugging temp and down the hatch. 5 min later success !
Obviously camping dosent afford a quick rip to the coffee shop but I'm sure however you make coffee when camping will work fine.
Also seems to work best if the coffee is ready to drink as soon as you get out of bed and before you start doing anything, but that would require someone else making it for you.
👍💩

Yogurt. Contrary to what Jamie Lee Curtis would have you believe, it doesn't have to be Activia; all yogurt contains pretty much the same enzymes. Just not frozen yogurt; frozen enzymes won't help keep you regular.

Put a couple of gallons of "home water" in your refrigerator!

I like to eat raw broccoli for lunch with my wife's homemade habanero humus as a dipping sauce! Oh, Fibercon's got nothing on me.... Next morning, it's all I can do to make the bed made before hitting the head. Turn on the vent fan and keep your foot on the flush valve!

My sister-in-law & her husband have been committed to summer vacations in the Black Hills since before we got married. They've had some land with a small travel trailer set down. Their young son back 20 years ago would get out there and refuse to use the outhouse (even with the fur lined toilet seat) -- said he would hold it until he got back to Minnesota. That never worked....

Just sayin'.

Happened all the time on deployments. First, throw self-consciousness to the wind and remember that all living things do it. Second, start taking a stool softener a day or so before the trip and each day away (not a laxative). Get a newspaper, tell everyone to take a walk, and relax.

There is a book about this condition that's geared towards travellers -
it just hasn't come out yet.
