I have a 1968 Airstream and it does not have a gray water tank. Folks say they use a blue tank for their gray water only - I don't know of a way to separate the black water from the gray water. What am I missing here? Do you only put gray water in the black water tank and use the facilities for human waste?

I have dumped my black water into my "blue boy". It's something I don't like to do, but it works out ok in a pinch. The biggest thing is cleaning/rinsing it out good when you are done. I use bleach mixed with water for that and it seems to work as it doesn't have any nasty, long term odors.

If your '69 is like our '66, the gray water drain is plumbed in "downstream" of the dump valve for the black tank. Leave the dump valve closed, and connect the blue boy to the drain fitting. Gray water will drain into it, but the black waste will stay in the black tank until you open the dump valve (hopefully when sewer is available).
