I used the cat litter & bucket last year. I poured the litter in a little at a time to absorb the odor and liquid. It worked pretty good. I just peed in it. On the way home I threw the whole thing in a dumpster a few states away.

Interesting factoid. I had no clue what they used to make gas smell.

My toilet breaks down to a suitcase dump compartment with a discharge tube to control flow.. Used for camping.. It is dumped into the home toilet.. Only urine,crap and one ply paper.. The (blue) water helps break down matter for easyer flow..


I am thinking we have the same model portable toilet you are talking about here. Has a battery powered flush system, etc.

We've carried it out for the past 2 years as an emergency incident item, but haven't had to use it. Good to know that we can dump it in the pots if we ever do have to use it.

LOL ya, I knew they added something to natural gas to give it an odor, just never knew they made the smell with garlic.

The chemical used to odorize natural gas and propane is called "mercaptan".

Very nice thread Unjon. Thank you.
I have an opinion and it farts too: It's unbelievably easier if one can do the "penguin walk" for #2 business to the public potties than it is to maintain housing for it at one's camp. I personally use the 5 gallon bucket w the snap lid camping seat as seen in the last page. This is excellent for midnight piddling sessions. In other cases I use a Pee-Funnel (loving you Zoe) and a twist top gallon jug. This totes very well.

Story: while on the DPW parade, we were stopped in open playa, and I'd been driving a fucking long time already. I pulled out an empty water bottle and whipped out a pee-funnel, and away I went. Capped it off and Whew! I was back in the groove.
Word of advice: keep a pee funnel on your person when traveling around the city. They are the bomb!

Final note: if you want to enjoy the public potties to their utmost, just take a look at my thread All About Participating in the Pottie Project.

I'll be in my blanket fort until further notice.

Keep your pee funnel (I have a Pstyle and SheWee) on you at ALL times because when you're sitting at gate for hour after hour after HOUR, running out to piss in open playa makes you a) an asshole b) up for a fine c) set a bad example, etcetcetc.

Same for exodus.

My hip belt that I made has it's own pee funnel pocket.
