If you are a male, in the future you could carry one of this. Works great, the urine solidifies in the chemical powder that's inside. You can put a coat over your lap or a blanket and do your thing.

Get a PO Box immediately so youhave a place for your mail to go. Don't check "commercial or business use" or the post office will be obligated to give out your contact info for anyone who asks. They are about $30 for six months.

Buy a little urinal jug for $5 or pack of disposable ones for $12.

(You have to pee when in a car a lot more than your tire goes flat so why do you have a spare tire and no pee jug in your trunk?)

Here is one with a female adapter for $5. everyone should have one of these in their car trunk anyway.

here are some disposable cardboard paper ones 6 for $12 if you want something smaller.

You don't want to exit a car at night to walk the woods or city streets to find privacy. Aircraft supply stores came up with these women's pee jugs which are used in small airplanes flying for several hours when no one wants to land just to pee.

Other practical things from a friend of mine who has camped across the country:

If you have a car to sleep in find the neighborhoods with lots of apartments becuase they usually have a lot of apartment dwellers who park overnight on the streets so your car won't get hassled.

IF you live near a swimming pool park, beach or lake a lot of them have open showers.

If you have a sportsclub membership you can usually shower and change clothes there (might be worth the monthly purchase for national shower privileges alone.) If you go to a 24 hr one in work out sweats no one will think anything of it if you "accidentally fall asleep" on a floor mat "doing your exercises".

Buy a small wind up or battery powered alarm clock.
A plastic jar of peanut butter, a half gallon jug of spring water, a multivitamin and aspirin bottle, cold cans of chicken based Progresso soups with rice or veggies (which taste like high end gazpacho cold) and a spoon or fork and a can opener a wash cloth, deodorant, hairspray, toilet paper are wonderful things to have in a car at all times whether or not you are homeless/camping whatever.

A wool blanket is a wonderful thing for warmth and window privacy. A Sunday newspaper and tape makes great car window privacy (but also alerts police you might be sleeping in your car which is illegal some places.) An alternative is some of those sun reflectors for car windows which you can get at the 99cents store. Lots of people leave those on windows when they aren't sleeping in a car.

Even an out of service (with canceled monthly bill etc) cell phone can be used for emergency 911 calls if you keep it charged.

Get a thing that plugs into your cigarettes lighter that lets you pull in regular electrical plug devices to do things like run your cell phone and small's one for $25

WARNING they CANNOT BE USED WITH HAIRDRYERS or HEATING THINGS becuase those use to much electricity.

for that you need a heavy duty one 1500 watt one which will be a few hundred like this

no 2000 watt hairdryers if it's 1500 watts! (you should really not use a hairdryer in your car)

Even the smaller ones for cell phones and laptops will run down your car battery within an hour if the car isn't running and the larger one may even run it down when the car IS running becuase they pull so much electric juice.

If you are ever sleeping in your car, the easiest way to stay warm is to get a 2 liter soda bottle and empty it and fill it to the top (no air) with the hottest tap water you can find from a public sink, screw the plastic lid back on tight, and then put that bottle in a blanket or sleeping bag with you. You will stay very warm all night. You probably will need to wrap the hot water bottle in a pants leg or blanket becuase it will be hot on your skin otherwise. Don't leave air in there or it will expand and pressurize the bottle as soon as the hot water gets shaken. got o an aquarium store and buy two clear hoses like in aquariums.
One small diameter and one larger.

The small one can fill jugs from sinks etc when you can't get the jug under the sink faucet.
The large one can be used to route fluids outside your car without opening the door or to help fill radiators etc.

Get a $5 led flashlight and bunches of batteries for 99 cents

Those are all good things to have in your car anyway.

u/UMFreek · 12 pointsr/BurningMan

I just use a jug for the tent, but when I'm out and about I keep a Travel John in my bag. It turns your pee into a gel.

I had to leave the man burn a few years ago cause I was about to pee my pants. I almost had to stop and piss on the open playa it was that bad (I made it to the portos somehow). They are cheap insurance and they make them for men, women, and kids.

u/Qacer · 12 pointsr/ExpectationVsReality

Amateurs. This is what you bring to a festival: TravelJohn-Disposable Urinal (6 pack)

u/Pufflekun · 10 pointsr/AskReddit

Or this, for when you need to pee in a public place, regardless of gender! Only $12 for four of them!

u/grass_fed · 5 pointsr/Lollapalooza

It's better to pee before entering a crowd.. and I know nature calls sometimes but don't go peeing on people's feet. Bring one of these at least.

u/flyingprairie · 5 pointsr/flying

Lots of questions here about headsets, etc. Dad here, have researched this, info incoming!

Age of children - if you can put them in a back seat and have another adult back there with them, it depends on how soon they can wear a headset. Every baby is different.

Headsets. For the little babies, this is the toughest. We couldn't find any true headset, and looked into simple sound-blocking earmuffs. We tried several brands before landing on small Peltor Sport Earmuffs from . For babies with larger heads, you can probably start them on short flights at 4 months. For smaller heads, they may need to be 6-12 months for their head to be big enough for a proper seal.

For the older kids, get one of the Sigtronics Youth headsets . Durable, and they're not $1000 if they misuse them. I have the S-58Y and they've worked fine. The headbands swap out for adult headbands too, so they can grow with them.

Ages - if you've got an adult to sit with them in back (especially if your audio panel has a pilot isolate button), you can take them at just about any age. My wife rides in back with my little one. I am much more selective about who can ride in front. My own older kids, whom I know real well, I let. EAA wants kids to be at least 8 for Young Eagles, and that's probably as good a guideline as any for other kids.

Get them excited about it before you take them up. My little one likes to watch 5-minute segments from One Six Right with me. We put on our headsets and watch them, and she jabbers about the airplanes. I started her out just letting her hold and feel the headset. I'd show her how I always wore one and waited for her to ask for one too. It only stayed on a few seconds at first, but she wanted to try it briefly every time. With the real little ones, your life will be easier if they are used to thinking about wearing headsets and thinking of planes as exciting things.

The older ones love to watch the GPS. They are interested in how fast we are going, how high up we are, etc.

Keep your climbs and descents shallow. Kids don't know how to clear their ears. I aim for 500FPM max. You don't want them screaming in agony. For the infant/toddler crowd, have them munching on or drinking something during the climbs and descents to help with the ear popping.

Don't be that person that insists "we've gotta make time." When the family wants to stop for a break, you stop for a break. Especially if someone needs to use the bathroom. I bring Travel Johns on longer flights for the males on board. My wife has looked at everything on Sporty's and didn't want to try any of their products that claim to work for women, so I got nothin for you there.

Finally, the best compliment you can get as a pilot is when they stay asleep during the landing.

u/diatho · 5 pointsr/washingtondc

bro. you should be there TONIGHT! just grab one of these and a case of power bars.

u/Third_Man_In · 4 pointsr/bonnaroo

The ground, water bottles, or Travel Johns

u/auntietrex · 3 pointsr/breakingmom

I got these during my first pregnancy when I had a brutally long commute with no easy bathroom locations. They're not perfect and can't hold a, "my bladder is exploding" amount of pee but they're better than nothing.

u/isitdeadyet · 3 pointsr/orangecounty

Travel John and a blanket....just make sure he doesn't shake it off more than 3 times.... otherwise he's playing with himself.

We live in a golden age. You are in luck.

> I have to divert if I need to pee. Men can just use an empty Gatorade bottle.

I admit, not as easy for a girl as for a guy, but still maybe an alternate to a diversion. TravelJohn

u/sarcasmdetectorbroke · 2 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

The trash bags are essential! I forgot to mention that, you are more prepared than me though I should really put some TP back in my stash. I need to add a bottle of water or two and hand sanitizer though for sure. Great tips. It's unfortunate we even need these things but it's better to be prepared. When I was pregnant I got these and I carry them with me too: - I don't know if they'd hold a poop but they give me comfort in knowing if I was really really desperate and could find a secluded place I didn't want to leave a trace behind in then I might try.

u/djuggler · 2 pointsr/homeautomation

Add one of these to the nightstand and she's golden! (not an affiliate link)

sidebar: I really do recommend the Travel John. I put them in the glove boxes of our cars and my wife gave me such grief over it. "No one will ever use that!" It's designed so that men, women, and children can use it. Holds 28 ounces of liquid and has a solidifier in it that turns the liquid to a gel and deodorizes. Can be used for vomit in a crunch. But I recommend these for vomit Anyhow, I put the Travel John in the car and my wife chides me. One week later, the 5th grader (three years ago) was returning from a school trip to Washington, D.C. and the students are getting off the charter bus with yellow eyes because someone had clogged the toilet. No bathrooms in the parking lot where the buses gather and my son refuses to water a tree begging for a restaurant. We barely get the car down the road and he declares, "I'm not going to make it." I grabbed the Travel John and was immediately vindicated. My wife is totally on board and even complained when I took one camping and failed to put it back in the car.

u/SeanColgato · 2 pointsr/aclfestival

Week 2! Sorry, haha. I'm actually gonna bring portable urinals (which sounds gross, but apparently more people use them at festivals than you'd think) and offer them to my fellow GNR campers around me so no one feels like they need to leave. Since you're gonna be camping, here's the link if you're interested.

u/hellothereoldfriend · 1 pointr/Coachella

here's the product on amazon, there's a video icon along the left hand side where the photos are.

basically its a small bag (starts small, then you unroll it) with a rim that you pee into, and magically your pee turns into gel and doesn't smell. works multiple times until it's full. no joke, depending on where your campsite is compared to the porta potties, these could be useful.

u/Red9inch · 1 pointr/MultipleSclerosis

You may want to stock up... travel john

u/darthbat · 1 pointr/AskDocs

I actually think this would be better for you, since it provides more information on how it works and has reviews you can draw from.

But in regards to your back pain, that may or may not be connected to your urinary problem so ask your doctor if there might be any correlation. Since one poster said in the other post that it may be due to a pinched nerve, they may possibly be connected. I think finding a neurologist is a good idea along with using a product like the one described above so you don't have to worry about your conditon.

u/internet_observer · 1 pointr/redneckengineering

People in the wilderness. Rock climbers, rafters, kayakers, canyoneers, etc. Enough people that it's a a full section of the NRS webpage including seats and bags specifically for shitting in 5 gallon buckets. For rafter it is also common to use a Rocket Box. Bags for peeing in also exist but you don't have to use those most places.

u/ShoRoe · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I live and drive in the Midwest. I put a telescoping shovel in my trunk at the first snow.
I always keep these within reach:
Bathrooms are not always available and puke just happens.

I can't recommend these enough for those early morning urges that wake you up and you can't face leaving your tent and staggering around in the dark trying to find the toilets...

Travel John Unisex Disposable Urinal Pack of 6

They may seem grim, but they are silent, absorb all smell, and instantly turn your wee into a gel so you could turn the pouch upside down with no leakage. Chuck them in your rubbish bag when done.

Each Glasto a new friend in the group thinks it's a weird and disgusting concept, but inevitably come begging for a pouch or two when they get desperate!

They work great for male and females. Haven't had the need to test it's vomit absorbing capabilities yet thankfully!

u/xijio · 0 pointsr/Seattle

But according to that, even if he had a portable urinal and used it in his car he'd be equally guilty. Sometimes laws are stupid.
