Attendant porta potty.. tokens on line???

Post by Josh-n-Cody » Fri Jul 11, 2008 7:56 am

I saw a posting for a porta potty service at BM...

you buy token on-line... and then go to the porta-potties with a big "H" on them...

they have attendants that keep them clean....

anyone know the info?

I can attest to the quality of the Harvey Huts. You will not see or smell anything out of order. I will even go as far as promising that you will NEVER have to wait in line.

Well worth the extra cash.

Josh-n-Cody, we are all attempting to boycott this type of toilet on the playa. It is a disgrace that Larry has lower himself to installing pay toilets in the middle of BRC. The standard port-a-potties work well, although there is no coat hook, 2-ply paper, seat covers or a trash can. I would also try to avoid the standard potties during the high, baking sun of the mid afternoon and early Saturday morning.

Are you kidding - I buy a ten pack of tokens every year now. I place a couple on my necklace and when I feel the need to poo I seek out the H hut.

Well worth the money!!!

Well, you do what you want, but I would rather poop in my shoe than give Larry another $2.90!

Hold what? Thats part of the problem. I can't hold it anymore. I'm weaning myself off oatmeal and split pea soup and back to normal food so things will improve for the most part by the end of August

Cheese and lots of it. It'll stop you up like a jack-knifed semi in rush hour traffic. :lol:

Please pardon me for asking, but are you trying to plug or unplug yourself? While I am strongly against Harvey Huts, you may be a perfect candidate for at least a 10 pack of tokens. I can't imagine someone being in that much distress and having to wait in line with a bunch of half naked hippies only to find the standard "Larry Lu" with no paper or worse! :shock: Last year, I saw the inside of the H hut as someone was leaving and there was a framed picture of Larry and his hat on the inside of the door. Imagine trying to sit there with Larry watching and smiling? NO THANKS!

Just slooowly going back to normal food. Having a 1/4 of what I used to have. For example instead of 4 or 5 tacos I'm down to one and hope to keep it that way. But I'll have oatmeal in the morning and some kind of soup for lunch. But like I said, by the end of August things will improve. The doctor said I can eat whatever I want but since I've now lost 8lbs I want to keep things as they are and hope to lose more. A guy I work with had the same procedure about 10yrs ago but he has to be the biggest pussy and most pessimistic bastard in the world telling all kinds of negative side effects. I'm shurgging them off. Thanks for asking.

Maybe I'll look into that operation. I would do anything to eat a quarter of what I usually do. Losing 8 lbs. sounds awesome. Glad to hear that you are feeling better.

WHAT? That's the final straw. I'm not going this year. Oh, I'll be attending the event, I'm just not "going" once I get there. As far as a donation to BRAF, I have a real good idea what I want to donate. I just hope it will fit in the mail slot!

If no one throws garbage, baby wipes, 2-ply, forks, newspaper, etc in them and people SIT ON THE SEAT while they do their thing... No, they're not bad at all.
