dry camping toilet solution help needed

Since it snowed Thursday we decided to leave tomorrow. It's cold here and we are winterized. We planned on using bottled water, but forgot about toilet usage. So we didn't get a portapotty, what do we do? Can we use our holding tank with the addition of antifreeze each time. Don't know when or where we eventually could be emptying it. We anticipate at the least several days on the cold roads (freezing temperatures) without hook-up and a possibility of boondocking for several days here or there. We may not be going to warmer climes.

You may want to consider "WAG Bags" made for a portable toilet called the PETT. I don't have the web site handy...do a search. You can use these double bag arrangements in the (dry) toilet, then dispose of them when you get to a dumpster. The bags contain a decomposing powder, though the used bags still emit a somewhat offensive odor, they're best temporarily stored in the bed of the pickup truck or an airtight container until you hit the dumpster. To minimize the use of bags ($25 for #12), I would think you could pee into the toilet / black tank with antifreeze. You can find the PETT products at many outdoor shops. That's what I would do. Good Luck.

not too far off what I was thinking, but

do they just go in the dumpster?
(Airstreamers are not odoriferous--)

Thanks, I will look for it, or beg to go South to a full-hookup.
