    What does everyone do for bathroom breaks?

    Me, I have a complicated list of public bathrooms throughout the town that I visit if necessary. Thankfully, Ann Arbor has a nice system of public parks, many with very clean public bathrooms that are rarely used. Those are my first choice. If necessary, I'll resort to a McD's or BK, etc, bathroom.

    We used a 5 gallon bucket, as well.

    Unfortunately, I remember one day when the bucket was up in the front of the trailer with the blowers. Well, I started the blower and the tube just happened to be aimed into the bucket ...

    Oh, you know the rest.

    It was disgusting. Now, the bucket is dumped after every use.

    I dont have an enclosed but if i did i woul buy the biggest port-a-john Cabelas sells. I just bought the smallest port-a-john Cabelas sells for the back of my wifes van. I can stop and let my 2 year old jump in the back on those long car trips. Very nice.

    Nothing more disgusting than trying to help your little one use a public john. Their little hands have to hold the sides of the seat to keep from falling in ...yuk. Thats just nasty.

    I have done this before under a similar situation. A five gallon bucket can be used as a "thunder bowl". Just carry a box of heavy weight plastic bags and after you have "dumped" just tie the bag up real tight and dispose of it later. No mess and no stink and far more sanitary and practical than a public bathroom. You can also have a urinal by installing a waist high piece of pvc pipe to the wall of your trailer and a few gallons of water to "flush" with. This will cover you. After all no ones bladder is capable of holding a full two gallons of fluid. The only one who will know is you.
