POOP! CACA! DODO! LOG!

Post by kingsjoker » Tue May 27, 2014 10:01 am

What do I DO with my DODO? Where does it go?! :shock:

I'm camping solo and have the pee jug situation sorted but what about my number 2 :coffee: ? Is it common to have a poop box or do people generally go to the jot for that kinda business?

I'm also taking the Burner Express from SF and need to minimize what I take.

Most people set up a box with kitty litter in their tent.

If you're tent camping, use the portapotties. If you have a medical condition that may require a quick dash in the middle of the night, camp close to a bank towards the back streets - they tend to get less nasty & crowded. Make sure you have a "Blue Room Bag" ready for a middle of the night run: flashlight (DO NOT forget the flashlight!), toilet paper, baby wipes & a ziplock bag so you can take the wipes with you.

The locations of the portapotty banks will be noted when the map is released, you can plan your camping area then.

Like Eric said, make a potty bag. I made my wife a potty bag for her last year. It had TP, zip lock bags, wipes, small flash light, hand cleaner, small bottle of baby powder, and small towel.
It made it easy for her to find and keep all her stuff together.

I've garnered that squating or "hovering" over and taking a doody in the porto pottys like a chinaman is a big no-no. Just cover the seat with a layer of tp and that should be fine right?

As long as you put your tp into the toilet when you're done. Personally I just wipe down the seat and plant my ass on it. Never had a problem.

People who hover also tend to be the types who don't clean up their mess when they spray or shit all over the seat. Basically, they're the ones making the mess they're so afraid of. Personally, I think they should be branded on the forehead & all made to use the same "hovering station" potties so that civilized people can use the rest, but it isn't going to happen. :(

Actually, I believe Robbidobbs has realized that there is a way people can hover--if you lift the seat and then hover, or even squat, then any mess (barring incredible grossness) will not effect people who sit using the seat.
I'd wait for her word on this, but I'm fairly certain this is part of her drill.

one of the little things I do, is take a spray bottle of lysol with me, and clean the JOT I use, seat and handle, so as to have it nice and leave it nice for the next person.

It depends on how lazy or helpless you are, I suppose. There are plenty of porta-potties, no matter where you're camped in the city, you're not that far from a large bank that gets serviced several times per day (which I think is covered in the first timer's guide and survival guide).

Although I normally use the jots, having some WAG Bags and a sheet rock bucket really saved my ass (literally) when I developed a case of the trots at the end of last years burn.

Not the most comfortable or pleasant thing, but they fit the bill when walking a block with buttocks clenched to the Jots every few minutes would be the alternative. I brought them for use in an emergency and henceforth will always bring some.

I'd suggest simply digging a hole in the ground inside your tent, squatting over it and expelling that which you wish to jettison, and repacking the hole when you're done... But then I'd make more work for the moderators, having to delete that in case some asshole actually takes it as non-sarcastic advice.
Because really - we don't care if you want to shit in your tent but don't dig any holes in the playa.
