Let's talk Port-a-Potties

Post by Lulu74 » Sun Sep 29, 2019 12:55 pm

Did any of you have the pleasure of having a porta-a-pottie that was themed/ dedicated/ or decorated? We were at 3:15 & E and had one dedicated to Prince and one to Queen? I was inspired by this...funny thing, they stayed clean and I would wait in line to use either. It gave me and idea...Let's start a "Pimp a Potty" project. If we all just picked 1 to care for during the burn and maintained it daily, just think how any many smiles we could make.....Whose in?

I'm down. I imagine that this would need to be decorated in a way that is easy to remove.
Normal is boring. Don't be boring.

I plan on doing this in 2021. I've got a theme with music playing and lights to compliment. Should be fun!
I love SilverGirl70's Modified Monkey Hut for Kodiak & Shiftpod!

Finding a cool decorated Porto is pretty fun, if you do dress one up please make sure you attach stuff very firmly. After a week or more, the decorations start to get moopy. Make sure anything you Putin there can’t easily fall into the the actual toilet as that can fuck up the operation when the crews come around to pump them out.

That typo above . Yes, I’m aware...

Anyhoo more info can be found at the Burningman Porto Project. It’s also a pretty fun dept to volunteer for. No touching of the poop required
Oh my god, it's HUGE!
