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.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000M3DCHI?ie=UTF8&tag=reddit0e-20

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 laptop.here's one for $25

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000157TNA?ie=UTF8&tag=reddit0e-20

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
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00126IDDC?ie=UTF8&tag=reddit0e-20

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

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000LIQQ7M?ie=UTF8&tag=reddit0e-20

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

u/hangry_potato · 36 pointsr/AskWomen

Invest in a shewee!

If you've ever found yourself in the situation of having to squat to pee camping/public bathroom/hiking or in my kind of job where a toilet isn't anywhere close you need one of these! Let's us pee anywhere someone with a dick can!

u/MrPattonhead · 30 pointsr/LifeProTips

with this you can both pee in bottles

u/o0turdburglar0o · 20 pointsr/WTF

Not only soldiers, but anyone who enjoys camping. I got one for my GF.

Well, actually I bought her a better version with a longer stem to make it easier for her to use without pissing on herself.

I suppose you can blame it on this 'summer reddit' I keep hearing about.

u/averageshortgirl · 19 pointsr/backpacking

This won't be interesting for all you hikers, but I always bring my pStyle. It's seriously the bomb. Peeing has never been this easy.

u/BallsOutKrunked · 18 pointsr/preppers

There should be a lot more discussion on this topic. Bullets and beans don't mean anything if you can't dispose of waste in safe manner. My solution / thoughts below, and I live in a rural area but on a municipal system so this may or may not be as applicable.

For urine, pee in something like a bucket , or build a urinal that drains into a french drain. In general urine can be disposed of fairly easily. Gallons and gallons can go into a rather small area which you can cover later with dirt. Except for the fertilizer burn there's really no issues here. As others have noted keep the urine and solids separate.

For solid waste, relatively easy is:

  • a 5 gallon bucket (which you probably already have for storage).
  • a lid kit for the bucket.
  • some biodegradable bags that fit into the bucket. You can just clean out the bucket each time but this makes a little easier and you can just bury the whole bag.
  • some type of absorbing material to dry out the solid waste, and handle any urine that gets in there too. I have a pellet stove so I literally have tons of wood pellets which absorb a lot of water. Other good ideas are coir, sawdust, shredded cardboard, or kitty litter.

    Regarding the municipal system, eventually it will back up, it's a question of time. Where I live it's a straight downhill shot to the municipal waste treatment center, no lift pumps required. The waste treatment facility has backup generators and overflow ponds so provided they can still operate things will work. Shit flows downhill, as it was.

    In an extremely prolonged sort of situation where the crews weren't out doing maintenance or a large earthquake actually ruptured the pipes, things will back up. The folks at the bottom will experience it first.

    You can install a backup prevention device. It has regular maintenance and the install could be easy (in the crawlspace) or terrible (you have to dig). If you're preparing for generalized disruptions it's probably overkill but if you're on a municipal system and want to isolate yourself, it's a good idea. /u/parametrek 's PDF post is terrific, that's something every prepper should have.
u/whiskeyjane45 · 18 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Something like this. There are reusable versions that are great for camping but i feel the disposable is better in the festival setting.

u/hawps · 17 pointsr/DIY

Solar shower! But I'm sure you already knew that.

u/roseflower81 · 15 pointsr/UlcerativeColitis

Many states have passed the Restroom Access Act (Ally's Law) for people with specific medical conditions to have access to bathroom. You can also request for a card here.

In any case, I too have a similar set up, but in my car in case of an emergency in the middle of a drive. It's a bucket but with a toilet seat that you can get on Amazon

u/poidogs · 15 pointsr/preppers

What is your plan for going to the bathroom if there is no running water/toilets/privacy? At the least get a bucket toilet so that you have some place to put it all.

If you plan on doing some clean up, get face masks/respirators and protective eyewear appropriate for that. If you are wearing work gloves, put latex/nitrile gloves under that. There are gloves that are a bit longer than the usual wrist length. Any cut/wound becomes an opportunity for infection. Make sure you have enough first aid supplies to both thoroughly clean and bandage any cut/wound.

Have good "hand awareness" -that is be mindful of not touching your face. All the gloves and ppe in the world won't do any good if you rub your gloved hand over your eyes/nose/mouth and directly administer cooties to yourself. That is another reason for some sort of mask/eyewear -so that you don't rub gunk in places you don't want gunk.

Be careful! Stay safe! I hope your house is ok.

u/firstmanonmars · 15 pointsr/BurningMan

This comes off completely as them making up a fake story in desperation, to get BMorg to turn around their decision. Why would you try to sell tickets on eBay? To catch a "rat" from the organization you claim to have friends in? The fuck?

Also raising my bullshit meter: selling on eBay is a contractual obligation. They would have legally HAD to sell those tickets to the highest bidder.

Sorry, this is a clear matter of fucking up—badly—and trying to cover for it. Poor show.

Here is what my wife bought for her pee funnel this year. Cheap. Reusable. Doesn't add to the landfill of plastic cups after BM. Sorry, PFC, you do a good service but this phony CYA gives me a poor feeling about you guys.

u/Meowzebub666 · 14 pointsr/OSHA

I got one of these for camping and festivals and tried it at home first.

First, peeing standing up is incredible, 11/10 do recommend.

Second, my aim was perfect but splash back is a bitch!

I get it now, I'm not so up my bf's ass about sprinkles around the can anymore.

u/zNNS · 13 pointsr/ElectricForest

There are showers there. I think they cost $10 and they're usually not the warmest.

I don't think I've ever taken a shower at fest (gross I know). What a lot of people do is buy solar showers and use those. Yeah, they're not quite as thorough but they do the trick.

I'm basically married at this point so I have nobody to impress.

u/SmokeyDawg2814 · 13 pointsr/bonnaroo

Definitely get hooked up with the good folks at accessibility if you have not already.

Keeping cool and hydrated are also going to be of major concern...obviously. Outside of the obvious things like wide brim hat, high SPF sunscreen (and plenty of it!), and a camelbak a few things come to mind:

  • Frogg Togg Chilly Pad - wife and I used them a few years ago...game changer. Pick up a couple.

  • A personal fan - I don't use one, but, you may find it useful.

    Of course, having a good friend along to help carry stuff and keep an eye on you is also important. I assume you won't partake in any partyfavors, but, I'd feel bad if I didn't drop a reminder not to.

    Other random thoughts:

  • Get comfortable walking shoes and break them in before Bonnaroo
  • Rent an RV if you can swing it. Most in and around the major cities near Bonnaroo (Knoxville, Chattanooga, Nashville) are all long gone by now, but, worthwhile to try and find one. You'll be much more comfortable through the weekend.
  • Remember it is a marathon, not a sprint. When the schedule comes out look over and determine when you'll have good solid gaps to be able to take a break. Centeroo can be overwhelming for anyone and it's good to get some time at the campsite and chill.
  • Get a CamelBak or other hydration system - mine has lasted me 10+ years, brand name is worth it.

    I've never been in accessibility, but, from everything I understand they take extremely good care of everyone. A good friend of mine has gone that way with his brother 3 times and they love it.

    This is everything I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure you've done it, but, definitely talk to your doctors about certain things you should be mindful of while there. I'm sure accesibility is different, but, average Bonnaroovian spends a TON of time on their feet and in the sun. It can be exhausting even for healthy individuals. Partying from noon (or earlier) until 3AM (or later) takes it out of anyone. Just know yourself, your limitations, and priority shows and pace the weekend accordingly.

    Feel free to PM if you have additional questions.
u/Amator · 12 pointsr/preppers

Maybe.

I'd set up somewhere in a National Forest in my general area (NC/SC/TN) with plenty of water sources, some fish and game, and an escape route if wildfires get too close.

I have enough Boy Scouts and armchair bushcraft experience to work with an axe and cordage to put together a decent enough shelter--it probably wouldn't take more than a month--and I'd try to setup a decent camp latrine away from water sources.

In addition to my BOB gear*, I'd spend some of the money on a used wheelbarrow, shovel, axe, splitting wedge, $50 worth of cheap cordage/bungee cords/carabiners/tarps/duct tape from Harbor Freight, $10 worth of BIC lighters (can still be used as firestarters once the fuel is gone to supplement the fire gear in my BOB), a gallon of bleach (santize the latrine, backup water purification), a decent cheap WalMart fishing rod/tackle (plus the license). Let's estimate $200 for all that.

Can I scrounge? I'd get a dozen or so free 5-gallon buckets from food service operations and several Arizona tea jugs out of recycling bins. I'd hit up the bulk Goodwill office to grab extra clothes/blankets/bandanas/towel for $.80/lb. I could probably even score a decent pot/pan and plate/flatware/coffee mug to go with the minimal cooking gear in my BOB, maybe even a grate from an old rusted grill. If you're going to be there a year, it's probably worth the couple of bucks.

I don't know much about trapping, but a handful of connibears and steel wire snares aren't too expensive and I'll be there a while so it might be worthwhile to spend $25 on those and a cheap bottle of musk. While I'm at it, let's get a couple of spring-loaded rat traps while we're at Harbor Freight to nail to trees and try get some tree-rats for dinner. At this point, I'm probably going to have to get a hunting license so let's upgrade to the annual premium fishing + hunting license for $50 as it has more privileges.

Let's add some speed-fishing hooks for $11 as well, assuming they're legal in the area.

Oh, I'd better total up what we have so far - $200 for misc tools, $75 for licenses/trapping stuff, and let's drop $25 on a basic cheap slingbow, $5 for an extra band, and $25 for a few cheap arrows from Walmart. Let's guesstimate we're at $300 at this point on tools and food procurement.

I don't plan on catching a lot of meals this way, but I need something to do with the time and if I can catch one critter a month it'll be great for the fresh food to supplement the beans and rice. Another guy in this thread did a cost analysis for a year's supply of rice/beans/oil for $227.88. Let's add a few iodized salt containers and cheap multivitamins from Dollar Tree and then go hit the salvage grocery store for cheap spices/teas. Say $250 for my food supply.

That leaves around $450 left. At this point, I feel like I have some of the basics covered and can start spending money/effort on a few things to make that year go by easier. I love coffee, but it's an expensive habit on a tight budget. Since I'll have an abundance of time, I'll get my coffee fix by buying green unroasted coffee beans - the cheapest bulk bag of green beans from Sweet Maria's is $5.50/lb but is $87.70 for a 20 lb sack and they have a 15% coupon code so let's estimate $90 shipped for 20 lbs. That gives me just under an ounce a day so it's a splurge but I'm willing to spend $100 to get the beans and a $10 french press from Ikea and I'm pretty sure it won't take me too long to find a couple of river rocks that would work as an impromptu mortar/pestle.

I also like to smoke a pipe maybe once a day which is maybe an ounce a week. I already have a spare pipe and tobacco in my EDC bag so this would go with me, but I'll make do with the cheap drugstore pipe tobacco marketed for RYO cigs at $14/lb shipped. We'll grab 3 of those 1 lb packs for $42 to keep me in my daily smoke.

I have a handcrank radio in my BOB and I could kinda cheat and say I already have that folding solar charger I plan on buying someday, but let's not and I'll cough up the $38 for this one. I'll have my battery bank and flashlight that's in my BOB plus my iPhone in my pocket and my Kindle I keep in my EDC backpack. The plan will be that I'll find a nice sunny spot to permanently mount the charger and I can go plug in the battery bank each day to keep my phone topped off. That way I have a radio for news and I can load a lot of music/audiobooks/ebooks/games to help keep me sane. I'm also going to buy an extra pair of earbuds from DollarTree as well as a few bars of Ivory soap a $9 Solar Shower from Amazon. Gotta stay clean and having a shower is a huge morale boost.

Speaking of books, I'm probably going to hit the library on my way out of town and check out a few survival/homesteading books. I'll have plenty of money to pay the late fines after I win the boatload of money from my uncle.

At this point, I've spent:

$350 on Tools/Food Procurement
$250 for boring basic calories food supply
$100 on coffee (important)
$50 in tobacco (likewise important)
$50 for electronics

So $700 total. Do the rules state I have stay in the woods, or can I walk into town from time to time? If so, I'll keep the rest of the money for a weekly walk into town to spend my $3.85 allowance and visit the library. If I can't, I'm going to probably spend the rest on a cheap used rifle and as many rounds as I can buy. I'll have my 9mm Glock and a few clips of ammo from my BOB, but that's no fun to hunt with. I'd also try to figure out a way to get a cheap guitar from somewhere if possible - I could probably figure out a song or two in a year.

Let's say the above plan is approved, and I'm going to the woods for a year. Hoo-rah! That's a lot of sacks of beans and rice - I'm glad I bought a used wheelbarrow! Once I get to a campsite I like, I'll start divying out enough rice/beans/salt into empty 5-gallon bucks and dig a pit to bury them in--probably two or three to make sure it's not all in one place if I didn't bury it deep enough and a bear smells it. The next order of business would be setting up a semi-permanent lean-to glamping shelter, cooking pit, latrine, a sand filter for pre-filtering water before adding into my Sawyer and storing it away in the Arizona tea containers.

I'd spend my days playing around with the hunting/trapping/fishing gear, reading, playing guitar badly, and writing in my journal. Once a week or so, I'd shower, put on my best shirt, and hike to town for a visit to the library and to buy a beer or some other treat. If could access Wi-Fi it'd be great to set up a blog--I could take pictures and write on my phone and upload to a free WordPress site whenever I'm in town. I'm pretty sure I could get a book deal out of this as well.

u/sea_of_clouds · 12 pointsr/hulaween

I've tried those, but have had...less-than desirable results. Apparently I lack the sort of coordination needed to use one without peeing all over myself. 😆

So I did the next best thing and created my very own Whiz Palace! It's essentially a large bucket with a toilet seat on top; I secure a small trash bag inside and fill with cedar shavings (like you'd put in a small pet cage), to mitigate any noise or smell. The toilet is then placed inside a pop-up shower tent and voila! I also include toilet paper and other accouterments. I change the bag and cedar daily. It's not pretty, but it beats the heck out of stumbling to a porta-potty at 5am.

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/Teerlys · 11 pointsr/preppers

This is probably the most realistic advice for the vast majority of folks. Though they sell ones with seats/lids for not very much. The pool noodle idea is a new one for me though. Presumably to put around the rim for cushioning? That's clever.

u/elemen7al · 11 pointsr/Coachella

I can't recommend anything higher than the cooling towels:

Stays cool until it evaporates which is about an hour or 2 in the hot coachella sun. Saved my life the first year i went. Keep it on your shoulders or head when youre out in the sun or take a nap in the shade with it over your face. heaven

u/Kwazimoto169 · 11 pointsr/gaming

Geez, man! At least get a toilet seat for the top of the bucket. That looks bloody uncomfortable.

u/Spongi · 10 pointsr/AskReddit

Unless he's got some kind of weird complex about girls and poop just forget about it.

If you need to go to the bathroom, then just go. Don't worry about it. Spray a little air freshener if it makes you feel better.

Reminds me of the time I was at my grandmother's and took a massive shit then sprayed some pine-sol scented air freshener. My grandmother walks in a few minutes later and starts sniffing the air then say's "Smells like someone shit on a pine tree."

If it makes you feel any better. I don't even have a bathroom. I just have this and a bag of pine shavings.

I even had a lady friend come stay for a bit. Whenever she needed to use the bathroom I just left for a few minutes while she did her business.

u/jaweeks · 10 pointsr/news

Not even with this?

u/tatertom · 10 pointsr/vandwellers

> It's not so great when it's cold outside

Does its accompanying literature warn against filling with warm water? I use a camp shower pump like this in a big, sturdy dry bag, and it does a lot more than take the edge off. All I really need to do is stop wind from hitting me, and it's downright therapeutic at times.

Hollow out the dildo so it'll fit on the spout (make sure to cut out a urethra) and then glue them together. Tape that thing to your bits and Boom!

u/JoeIsHereBSU · 8 pointsr/preppers

Although I think 6+ months is unlikely, but here is what I would do.

  • Cook
    • Over the fire
    • Make a fire over
    • Buy one for the house beforehand, currently in the worlds smallest house but want to build in the next couple years
  • Shower
    • Camp Shower
    • You can also make something like the camp shower using a 2L bottle or 2.
    • Good old boil water and add it to a tub
  • Wash Cloths
  • go to the toilet
    • This is a whole subject on its own. Hard to say just dig a hole because where does that hole go? How do you get your water? Will disposing of waste contaminate your water? Will it contaminate your neighbors? Making a septic tank is hard, but you might have to do it by hand.

USE SUNSCREEN. Wear a hat. Wear sunglasses, bring extras. Bring several pairs of comfortable shoes, flip flops or worn out shoes are going to be a bad time. Carry extra socks with you, amazing how refreshing it is to change your socks in the middle of the day.

Earplugs are a must, for loud music areas and for trying to sleep.

Bring a larger tent than you think you need. Room is nice. also bring a luggage lock - a small combo lock that can fit through your zippers and make it a bit more secure (but lock real valuables in your car.)

In addition to your tent, bring a 10x10 canopy like this to shade your tent or the area in front of your tent. It will keep the sun off of your skin while chilling, and if used over your tent can cool it off inside.

Get some solar powered lights to put in or around your camp. Find a way to put the solar charger outside, outside lights can help you find your tent, light the interior on under the canopy I suggested, and makes it look pretty cool.

If you are worried about juicing your phone, clip one of these to your backpack as you walk around all day. A good one can keep your phone topped off pretty well. Get one per phone, they aren't that heavy. Beats having to visit charging stations.

I posted elsewhere about using a camping stove, these are really good - make sure to get some JetFuel for each one. Bring old pots and pans, a kettle to make hot water, and butter cooking spray is the bomb to keep things fairly non-stick. To make coffee, use a simple pour over device with cone shaped paper filters. Bring reusable cups for each person.

Bring bags for garbage. Try to reduce the amount of plastic you throw away.

If you don't want to pay for showers, bring one of these camp showers. I also bring another 5-gallon container to refill your bag and for washing dishes etc, and a folding wagon to carry it in because I'm too old to struggle.

u/RefinedBulbasir · 8 pointsr/AskDocs

here hope this can help a little bit. Get two, one for on your head under a hat and one for around your neck. This will help keep your brain from over heating.

Drink lots of water, and eat LIGHT, think salads, but do have protein. One of my favorites is a tuna cucumber salad sandwich. It’s light and makes me feel better

Also wear moisture wicking fabrics and put anti monkey butt(or just corn starch) on your butt crack to avoid swamp ass. Depending on your gender apply in other places (balls, inner thighs, under boobs, pits) this will prevent chafing.

Have you talked to your employer about your working conditions? If they refuse to improve it I’m sure they can be reported for unsafe work conditions.

u/sometimesineedhelp · 8 pointsr/TinyHouses

I lived in a little potting shed for a year, it was chilly, but fine. All you need is a 5 gallon bucket and one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Emergency-Bucket-Portable-Toilet-Standard/dp/B004KLY5CE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1414046370&sr=8-1&keywords=bucket+toilets and a 5 gallon water container that you fill up at the spigot every day or so http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Water-Carrier-5-Gallon-Blue/dp/B00168PI4S/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1414046409&sr=8-5&keywords=5+gallon+water+bottle a bowl and a sponge and you're set up for a make-shift sink/ sponge bath...

Haven't you ever been camping? If you are homeless and broke and someone is offering you a warm, dry place to sleep why are you wasting time freaking out about building a loft? That looks like about 300 sq feet of space there and you'll be able to set up a basic "camp kitchen" and sleeping area NO PROBLEM. Get a WARM sleeping bag and a mattress to insulate you from the floor because baseboard heat is going to be EXPENSIVE. If you can't shower at the gym or at a friend's place, get a solar shower and a big pot and heat water on a camp stove and fill the bag that way. You need a place to prepare food: camp stove/microwave/folding table/minimal cooking and eating utensils. A place to sleep: floor mat/warm sleeping bag a place to bathe: a friend's place or a camp shower setup. A place to toilet: fast food restaurants/a friend's house/a camp toilet setup. A place to store clothes: fold neatly on the floor/get some cheap shelves like thishttp://www.amazon.com/Safco-Products-Storage-Black-5279BL/dp/B000789RSQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1414046914&sr=8-2&keywords=grid+shelves and that's it! Anything else is extra and unnecessary

Is it better than usual? You have to be right next to your vehicle.

$70 is pretty expensive compared to simple 5 gallon bucket seat.

I do long runs up there and camp nearly every weekend... I just bring a solar shower and put it on my dashboard or hood of my car, hose off afterwards... It's one of these, you can get them at Miller Surplus for 10 bucks or something: http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-2000014865-5-Gallon-Solar-Shower/dp/B0009PUT20

Edit: forgot to mention, there's also an ice cold spring just down the way from the Mt. Lemmon fire lookout. Take the Mt. Lemmon trail west from summit, stay R/straight at fork for Lookout trail, you'll see a metal building on your right, pipe sticking out of the hillside offtrail to the left -- flows hard year around. Maybe .2 miles total from parking area.

u/CitizenBacon · 7 pointsr/FireflyFestival

Elevated camping is just a hilarious concept to me. As if one person in a planning committee was like "I want to do everything identical to regular camping, but sleep 2 feet higher", and since they were a generally nice person, everyone else politely nodded their head.

Like I'm legitimately confused as to its merits over an air mattress in a regular tent. Feel like it just dramatically increases the probability of accidentally falling onto the ground during a groggy morning or drunk night.

That being said, I'm confident that whatever camping option you have, you're going to have a BLAST! Firefly is an awesome experience- great people, great music, and great vibes all around. In addition to what other people have suggested, I'd highly recommend a reusable water bottle to bring into the festival, as well as a handkerchief in case it's dry and dusty. Also a cheap camp shower works wonders if you don't want to wait on line for a shower!

u/thirtynation · 7 pointsr/Coachella

Copied and pasted from my reply in a related thread a few weeks ago about camping showers. This is a bit more involved than most people probably use, but it doubles as a both a camping shower and a misting setup for your canopy to provide cooling all weekend.

 

>We buy gallon jugs and a flat of water bottles for drinking, but our "utility" water comes from the water fill stations, or melted ice, depending on the use.

>Our shower is different than most camping showers you'll see people bring. We use a pump action garden sprayer like this one connected to a misting hose like this one that is clipped around our EZ-Up for general cooling purposes. When someone wants to shower, they disconnect the pump tank from misting hose and take it in to a small camping shower enclosure like this one to take a quick wash with the sprayer. The enclosure is lightweight and pops up so it's very quick to throw out and fold down as needed. It's a great combination system to get clean without the wait/walk, and also to keep your campsite refreshingly cool with the misting hose. Neighbors are generally impressed by the mist.

>More commonly, you will see people use bag showers like this one hung within something like this. Take down and set up as needed, or leave it up all weekend if you find yourself with a corner spot. Enclosures that are stable enough to hold the water bag can be expensive, though, so that's why I think our system is a little better and more versatile.

Great discussion! I could definitely use one of those. I have to pump about 15 times to fill a glass of water with my hand pump.

I bought this shower two years ago and it was worth every penny and is still working great. Besides showeing, I have used it for many purposes like transferring rainwater from one conainer to another rinsing dishes and watering my garden. I have a bad back and this little beauty is by far my favorite off grid purchase.

You can still do GA and have flushable toilets, but it depends where you camp. There’s a “Jon condo” between the amp and meadow stages at the heart of the venue, for when you’re enjoying the shows. If you (arrive early enough to) camp near the bath house by Spirit Lake or the Grand Hall you can have access to flushing toilets, but there will be lines at peak times.

I fest and camp with my 8 year old daughter and we have one of these for just in case. Dudes piss innawoods but that’s not always possible for womenfolk, so we travel with one of these. #1 only.

I live in Monroe Washingon and routinely take the exact type of trip your talking about in the Snoqualmie National forest. While it may not be best practice, here's what I do:

  1. Scout the area ahead of time and try and find at least 3 good spots.
  2. Camping next to a river will yield tons of good fire wood and minimizes mosquitos. Avoid heavily shaded areas. Wood may be damper and mosquitos love it.
    3.I never worry about bears. We have virtually no brownies and blacks are skittish. I keep my food in a cooler in camp, cook in camp and never change my clothes because I may have gotten some bacon grease on them.
  3. I use a machete to hack down firewood to manageable sizes.
  4. Bathroom. I use one of these with a 5 gallon bucket. http://amzn.com/B004KLY5CE
u/alaskaj1 · 6 pointsr/CampingandHiking

I took my wife backpacking for the first time this year.

See if she would be interesting in one of the stand to pee devices like the freshette or pstyle. They can take some practice to use but helps avoid having to squat to pee.

If she isnt used to camping then a nice inflatable pillow might make things a lot more comfortable, similarly a nice air pad would probably be preferable and make the whole trip happier.

Extra socks, especially if her feet got cold at night would be a plus.

Extra hand sanitizer and wet wipes.

Extra hair ties, even pack a few in your pack.

Those are the big things that we can think of right now.

u/Whipet · 6 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I own one of these, which has been useful for a few hiking/camping situations because it lets you pee standing up with your pants on. It's kind of high stakes urinating, though: fuck up and you're pants are covered in pee. And no matter what you end up with a pee covered funnel, which is non-amazing.

u/Ace-of-Spades88 · 6 pointsr/ElectricForest

Tip: Bring earplugs for getting rest at the end of the night/morning. We Foresters can be a rowdy bunch.

Trick: A couple car batteries and a power inverter works wonders for charging small electronics throughout the weekend.

Tip: make note of the cleaning schedule for the porta-johns near your campsite. (Hint: early morning seems like prime time.) Nothing like getting an early morning shit out of the way in a freshly cleaned john. Also, they wont have hot-boxed in the sun yet.

Trick: I bought one of these electric shower heads last year and brought a 5-gal bucket for water. Thing worked like a charm! It's less than $50 and rechargeable. Could easily split the cost among your group. Everyone in my camp loved it.

u/IGnuGnat · 5 pointsr/financialindependence

I'm in the process of slowing converting a Ford E150 into a stealth camper. We basically used it like a metal tent initially, but I'm slowly customizing it. The toilet is this: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0000B13MT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It fits on a Rona bucket, with a double bagged garbage bag. Almost never need to use it. We'll eventually upgrade to a composter or something like what you linked, but for now it meets our needs.
We find that anything within a few hours drive of our city is pretty booked months in advance, but this way we can leave on a camping, hiking or fishing trip any time we like with basically no notice. When we camp on old fire roads we find that firewood is so easy to find we're thinking about putting in a small RV woodstove to extend the camping season. I wouldn't want to live this way but it's lots of fun in short stints, we'll go for 10 days or so at a time. To be honest, we often park in a hotel parking lot and when you get up in the morning and walk in the staff will just point you at a free breakfast, they assume you're staying there.

u/mightychip · 5 pointsr/Shambhala

They're usually hot. Sometimes, the hot water runs out and they are... er... mountain fresh. Quite cold, but it's exhilarating. There are also times when the showers are shut down because the water table is low.


If you're one of those, "I must shower every day" people (I certainly am!) then you should invest in a solar shower. These bad boys are super cheap, hold about 10L of water and can... kind of substitute for a shower. You'll need a tree or something tall too strap it to.

u/jaredschaffer27 · 5 pointsr/Drama

>How much did you save up for this trip?

About 15k. Can theoretically go 18 months or longer on that.

>Is it safe?

I mostly hang out with friends who live rurally and camp in the woods, so yeah. Every now and again I have to park somewhere in a major city where I'm not 100% comfortable leaving all my shit, but I've only had one confrontation where I was in personal danger, and it was because I got "too close" to a homeless guy stacking things in a trash can in Portland.

I usually get 2-3 showers a week, in between my solar shower, hot springs, friend's houses or (last resort) truck stops.

That's the shower tent I have. It's super sturdy and can hold a 5 gallon bag no problem. The bladder that comes with this tent sucks. Intex solar bags are about $7 each on Amazon and much higher quality so we ordered 8 of them so we have 40 gallons of usable hot water, not only for showering, but also for washing dishes and whatnot. There is nothing like having the freedom to shower at a camping festival.

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 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015V1VX8/ . 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 https://www.sportys.com/pilotshop/catalogsearch/result/?q=sigtronics+youth . 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. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NV878S 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.

I've also seen this which is intriguing.

u/1984Society · 5 pointsr/vandwellers

The shower builds I've seen in smaller places usually consist of a metal basin you can stand in, with a hole drilled down through the floor for a drain, with basically a shower curtain however you want to hang it (hula hoops work nicely) and then using some sort of pump (electric or manual) for the shower.

I have a camp toilet. It’s a 5 gallon bucket, lined with a compactor bag (those are pretty much unbreakable and no leaks). Add a handful of the blue crystal kitty litter (no clay or clumping, just blue crystals). Top with a toilet seat (made to fit 5 gallon buckets), and you’re good. Change it once a day. You shouldn’t get any smell with the compactor bag/crystal litter combo.

Clothes: 5 gallon buckets and a laundry plunger wand.

Or, if you are going to be driving for a while, this will work well if your shocks aren't the best and the road is bumpy... 5 gallon bucket, add clothes/water/soap/spiky drier ball thingies. Put a lid on the bucket and tighten it, put it in the back. Drive.

When you are done driving, rinse, spot check, wring, and then hang dry.

I have a piece of rope going across the van that I used when doing laundry.

Or you can use a laundry mat but that kind of kills the adventure.

Showering and bathing.

Highly love the solar shower bag by Coleman. You might want to get a pop up shower stand but you can totally bath in your vehicle. A tarp on the floor is helpful.

I took a lot of bucket baths too. Fill a small bucket with soapy water (not tons of soap) and wash up. Then rinse in fresh water. I think that bucket was a gallon bucket.

Wipes are helpful also. When we traveled a lot, some days were crotch and pit wash days since we couldn't shower. It happens. These made that easier for us.

Either a compostable toilet, or simply a honey bucket. Luggable loo lid on 5 gallon buckets. Place in biodegradable bag, then a cup of absorbent kitty litter. Do your business, and each time give it a pump of orange citrus freshener and a cup of kitty litter. Ue until bucket is 1/3 full and tie off bat and toss in garbage or a hole.

Repeat. The luggable loo lids actually snap tight down when not in use, sealing off all odors, etc. Feels just like using a regular toilet.

Do you have the regular planet fitness membership or the black one?
http://www.planetfitness.com/membership-types

If you have the black one you're golden ;)

Other than that, get a good portable stove so you can make some food and boil water for tea or coffee.

Buy a jerrycan for water with a little tap on it, fill it up regularly, it also means you can wash yourself even if you don't have access to showers etc.

A small camping spade is good for number 2s in the woods :)

Get a mosquito net hammock, and maybe a cheap tent it means you can sleep outside or on campsites on hot nights.

Your biggest expense will be gas for the car.

Planet fitness is a good idea, but it's urban areas, I would do some (wild) camping more often.

I have no idea what campsites cost in the US per night, but if you do that every other night, or even once in 3 nights, it beats sleeping in a car park, and is cheaper than a hotel.

Have a look at some of the national parks, some of them have basic (cheap) camp grounds too. Campgrounds are really cool places to meet people, much better than a Walmart car park ;)

Shopping list:

Solar shower

Water carrier

Folding spade

Hammock

Cookware

Camping canister stoves are cheap, between $10 and $50
Cheap tent is around $50

Total expenses before hand, around $150-200 max.

I just went for the first items I found on amazon, there are probably cheaper or better products out there.

Source, I did a 6 month trip by bicycle through Europe, so not the same, but the basics are the same. You have the advantage of not being restricted by weight or size of items, which makes it cheaper.

If you need more ideas, packing tips or anything else, I'll gladly help ;)

Have fun, explore and enjoy, it's fun!

It is a bag that you fill with water and leave out in the sun. It's designed to heat the water pretty quickly, and it has a little nozzle and can be hung so you can take a hot shower... or at least be dripped on with hot water, anyways. I just used mine to heat water for my bucket bath.

Bring rain boots just in case. Last year's mud fest turned into a shoe graveyard and I ruined several shoes that I brought.

Also Walmart /camping stores have solar powered shower bags for real cheap (like under $20) bring a big jug of water and dedicate that jug solely to shower water, its not the cleanest feeling (if you don't have a shower tent you can wear a bathing suit and wash up outside of your car) but i certainly hope youre not going to a camping festival thinking you're going to be clean anyway, its definitely better than waiting in a long line and paying for a shower

Alternatively, for those who are more interested in a bit of comfort I recommend the Luggable Loo. Combine that bad boy with a trash bag and some kitty litter and you're set!

Well we PC guys sometimes have to just make do with what we have on hand while we save up money for what we need, but, if you really want to get efficient I'd suggest one of these maybe on some sort of custom wooden platform. Desk height and all that.

A five gallon bucket with a snap-on toilet seat is a good idea. Wag-Bags are a compostable liner for the bucket that comes with the neutralizing powder to treat about four uses before needing to be replaced.

My parents were surf hippies, and we spent literally months camped out at surf beaches with no power or running water. Solar showers are brilliant, and make a big difference to hygiene. Admittedly no good if you are in the Canadian winter, but for most of the year in temperate zones, they can provide a hot to lukewarm shower after a few hours in the sun.

MSR make a shower attachment for their Hydromedary water bags (a good compact option vs jerry cans). Dedicated solar showers are cheap, or you can go for a deluxe model like this one from Amazon

cloud 9 bike seat for 25 bucks - your butt will thank you!

If you have sinus problems & access to power running a small humidifier with essential oils (Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Peppermint) makes a huge difference.

If you're sensitive to noise (or camp with a sound camp on the esplanade) silicone ear plugs are amazing for sleeping. Instead of sticking them in your ear, you use them like putty to seal your ear canal. Way more comfortable, and lets you lay flat against a pillow. Usually they're reusable, on playa each pair tends to last one night.

For you ladies... a sheewee and a pee bottle is the way to go. No more late night trips to the portapots. I have this one because the open design lets me clean it with a baby wipe. Make sure you practice at home first.

u/ThanksForAllTheCats · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

I have a pstyle and LOVE it. Use it for hiking and backpacking. Keeps me from peeing on my boots or mooning the world. When I first got it, I hopped in the shower for a practice run.

My inside-of-my-tent setup is as follows:

Hanging LED tent light, that baby lights my whole tent brightly making it easy to find anything I need, and it has a push-button on switch so it's easy to reach up and turn it on in the dark. (something that looks almost exactly like this: http://www.batteriesinaflash.com/survival-gear/accessories/se-professional-fl8824-camping-tent-light-24-white-led-bulbs?gclid=CIz0zY600b0CFVKDfgodh6oAJA)

Pee jug (I use an empty laundry detergent container because it smells nice and there's no confusing it for water/juice/etc.)

Pee funnel since I'm a lady (I use this one http://www.amazon.com/Jobar-International-Ez-Travel-Urinal/dp/B004ANM6C8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1396978030&sr=8-2&keywords=pee+funnel)

A package of ear plugs, a sleep mask, and a package of baby wipes sit in the little hanging tent cargo pocket thing. I like to baby wipe my arms and legs before getting into my sleeping bag.

A large sheet to cover my bed when I'm gone.

A battery operated tent fan.

Water bottle full of water.

A good, fluffy pillow!! I find that no matter what I'm sleeping on, if I have a comfortable pillow I sleep SO much better. When camping, for me, the pillow is the number one most important part of the bed.

Maneuvering that funnel bit while holding a bottle in place and not spilling is enough to fully wake me up, so no real advantage over going downstairs.

Shower for your campsite - This attaches to any water bottle and creates a shower like flow to help you keep... relatively cleaner than you were before. It's been a huge help the last two years for me and I highly suggest it.

u/scumteam14 · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Hey, I was in a very very similar situation. I don't know how intense you want to go with it, but here are some things that I've done at various points:

  • For face cleansing, use gallon water from the grocery store (costs ~$0.80 where I'm at and honestly a gallon lasts a long time)

  • Or fill up a small water container (if you have a spot to fill up at that has good water) - plastic or a lemonade dispenser both work well, depending on the counter size

  • If you're having issues with your scalp/body, you can try rinsing with gallon water after showering with the sketchy water (will take about a gallon or two)

  • This one is more long-term very-very-bad water type situation (brown water, no water, etc.), but if you have a good water spot to fill up at you can fill up a large water container, get a camp shower (pricey but very good, charges very quickly and holds a charge for a while), and a bucket. Boil half your water, use cold water for the other half, bam. Sounds terrible if you're used to having safe running water, but honestly isn't half bad

    I know there are water filters out there, but idk if an affordable system would fix the issues you're describing.
u/cr0ft · 3 pointsr/vandwellers

You can build a van with underbody tanks and a shower, but that's much more involved. You also need a heating system to keep those from freezing, etc.

But there are any number of ways you can keep clean between showers, and in the states Planet Fitness (as has been mentioned) lets you both work out and shower almost everywhere.

Washcloths and basins of water would be plenty to get clean, if not as luxuriously as a shower.

Put room temperature water in a bucket, pour in a pot of boiling water to get it lukewarm, and use this: https://www.amazon.com/Ivation-Portable-Outdoor-Battery-Powered/dp/B00IFHFJXI (drop the pump into the bucket and shower away. If you get a wider basin you could even stand in it and let the water circulate a couple of times and extend the shower time.) Or combine with a drop-in bucket heater, to shower in hot water. Just have to get creative.

People have kept clean for centuries without showers. It's not as nice but it's doable.

/+ a bucket + a shower curtain to direct water back into the bucket is a very simple DIY recirculating shower. I'm planning on using upgraded versions of those parts in my more permanent build. All the other recirculating showers I've seen seem wildly overcomplicated

u/tomstaplez · 2 pointsr/preppers

The best way I have come up with to heat water for a shower is warming water on a portable induction cooktop, then drop in a battery powered shower head Any ideas out there to heat water when wood campfire is not available? Without propane. Thanks!

u/cospaceman · 2 pointsr/FireflyFestival

I think I may be in the minority on this, but the shower bag never really did it for me. I brought one like this and it was really lack luster. Im 6 feet tall and after hanging the bag, the nozzle was below my waist. That would have been fine, if not for the fact that the shower head just barely dripped, Placing the bag on the roof of the car got the water nice and hot within an hour or two. But if you want to get clean I might go with one of these with some kind of wash basin, or a kiddie pool and a bucket work really well for a quick cleanup

u/BLUMPKINFORCE · 2 pointsr/surfing

I bought one of those big blue camping jugs and I fill it once every couple weeks. Works great for rinsing off my kids after a day at the beach too. I leave it in my car all the time and it's like a hot water shower.

u/shitsberries · 2 pointsr/vandwellers
  1. You can check out the female funnels for urinating. That might allow you to pee in a bottle like one of the guys. For numero dos, find a public toilet like the rest of us.

    This girl (blog is no longer active) set up a pretty smart way for either gender to pee through her plumbing. If you go this route, just be sure you won't get in trouble or ruin anything when you use it.

  2. That's really going to be up to you. Do you have the time and willingness to build your own rig? My personal suggestion is to get a newer van, but not brand spanking new. Everyone has their preference, but I've read that the 2000's and up Econolines with a 5.4l V8 are solid. You'd want a E250 or E350 to ensure that you have the payload to hold everything you want. Even investing in tools and spending a bit on a newer van, you will be nowhere close to what you'd spend on a new class B (sportsmobile, winnebago). Plus, you'd be able to customize it to your liking. You'd also have the satisfaction and pride that comes along with building something of your own. Even if you had a 4x4 conversion (roughly $10,000), you'd still be far under the cost of a new class B. Another option would be to buy a used class B. For example, this. It may be over priced, I don't know, but I think you can see what I mean.

  3. Diesel. Simply put, better gas mileage and longer engine life. The diesels have a higher compression rate, IINM, so the engines normally have twice the life(in miles) as their gas counterparts. However, the maintenance costs are typically much higher. Oil changes alone can be 3x as much.

    Do a bunch of research on vehicles. Sprinters typically cost a fortune if they need a lot of maintenance and some years are better than others. However, some come stock with standing room and are much easier to build out. Chevy's are easier to build out than Fords due to the walls and Chevy's get better gas mileage than Fords, but I've heard Fords are more reliable. You'll hear many contradictions, but do your best to weed through all of the information for a general consensus. There sure is a lot of info on this subreddit alone, and then you've got that web that is world wide too :)

    Hope to see you on the road!

    Edit: I suppose there is more that goes in to deciding to build your own. Time is probably the biggest. Time is money, as they say. Do you have someone who can help you and would want to? That has been the most frustrating part for me. My friends are flaky and unreliable. Fuckers they are! If you're willing to absorb all of the information at your disposal, (youtube, blogs, general webpages about building & 12v electricity/solar) the other person doesn't have to know much, but, man, it helps to have another set of hands. For some projects, two hands aren't enough.

    And back to the toilet, I have an emergency toilet that I hope to never use, but it's a luggable loo on a 3 gallon bucket

u/packtips · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

There aren't really solutions for heating that large a quantity of water because in general this isn't something people do in the back country. You can look into solar shower (it's a black bag you hang in the sun and it warms up the water). Cleaning: cold water. Cooking: one person is most likely only going to need to boil 2 cups of water for a meal so 600 ml titanium cups are the standard. If you want more for cooking, look into the backpacker tea kettles, or if you are car camping and or don't mind hauling the weight...a kelly kettle (you feed in sticks and it boils a lot of water fast).

Use the hot water from your dispenser to fill up the bag and then use the bag to shower with.

u/plastrd · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

If you still have cold water you could heat it on the stove and hang a camp shower in the shower stall. It's basically a water bag with a shower head under it, fill it with warm water and you have enough time for a very brief shower.

u/starkraver · 2 pointsr/BurningMan

Right. The shower is the killer. Showers make the burn soooo much more tolerable, but logistically it doesn't scale well. Evaporator systems clearly have limited effectiveness. They can evaporate enough water for a small camp, but there's no system that effectively evaporates the shower water for 50 people. (if somebody else has a different experience, I'm always happy to be contradicted). But with 50 people the need to evaporate is greater.

Here are my two solutions to the problem:

  1. Conserve on shower grey water. Instead of using a traditional gravity fed solar shower bag use a pump pressurized garden sprayer set on coarse mist. You will be amazed at how clean you can get with just a liter of water when its under pressure, and pumping it up tends to last half of the shower. Just re-pump and finish.

  2. Make camp members responsible for hauling out their own grey water. If everybody takes out a few gallons of shower grey water with them, its really no burden at all. Many hands make something something. This has the double effect of encouraging conservation and engages your whole came in resource management and planning.
u/TripAndFly · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

something like this


paired with this

and you're set for like 30 bucks

or you could just bring a black 5 gal bucket, fill it up in the morning and let it sit in the sun to warm up and just dunk a washcloth in there to wipe down and use wet wipes on the naughty bits. that would cost you like 4 dollars.

or, you could skip the tent part all together and just plop that bag on the roof of your car and spray yourself down in your underwear/swimsuit or naked if that's your thing...

edit: never tried the shower trailers, heard they aren't too bad though.

u/ssirish21 · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

They're a little pricey, but a solar shower always did me well. They're like $15-$20 at dicks or target. It's a black vinyl bag with a hose that you fill with water and leave in the sun. It's not a perfect replacement, but for rinsing off the grungy bits, it beats 10 bucks a day

u/jleviathon · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

Here is my secret list shhhhhh... It's not cheap options that's for sure but I like being comfortable I guess, and it's stuff that will last for years of festival fun!

  1. A deep cell marine battery: Available at any auto parts store for about $120. You can then buy a cheap cigarette lighter hook up and intall it onto the battery. Then get yourself a decent 200watt power inverter, about $30. Then you can get some decent sounding speakers that plug in or a bluetooth one. Then you can charge your phone, power the speakers, or charge the bluetooth. With these speakers the battery will last 16 hours! This will also prevent you from ever messing with your car stereo or battery for any reason. Then you can just recharge it with this for next year.

  2. Blackstone's The Dash Portable Gas Grill and Griddle Combo is a great grill to cook every meal you would ever need.

  3. Not to get controversial but these and these have always done me right.

  4. Then this and this will leave you fealing like a million bucks or like someone in GL!

Also purchased and used this solar shower. Was hot enough to not even care if it heated up so we never had it in the sun. Held enough for 4-5 showers if you use it sparingly.

u/MrWanderlusst · 2 pointsr/Coachella

Understood. You should be fine using that method/setup.

I use mine for both, it’s the tallest most durable I’ve found.

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.

Add one of these to the nightstand and she's golden!

https://www.amazon.com/Travel-John-66911-TravelJohn-Disposable-Urinal/dp/B000NV878S/ (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 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JAGITMK/ 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/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: https://www.amazon.com/Travel-John-66911-TravelJohn-Disposable-Urinal/dp/B000NV878S/ - 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.

A sun shower. It’s like a huge bag of water with a hose, that you hang in a tree and the sun heats it up. Or, if you’re a redneck like me, just sling it onto the roof of your car and give yourself a quick morning rinse 🤓 in my opinion it beat the $10 shower and you don’t gotta wait in line.

u/thesneakymonkey · 2 pointsr/backpacking

My husband and I carry the same weight. We split gear but keep it mostly even. At most his bag is 2-3 lbs heavier. For reference I am 5'5"/130lbs and he is 6'/230lbs. We keep our bag weights around 20-25lbs with food and water (2-3 nights). She should be more than capable of carrying the weight if her bag is well fitted to her. I use a women's specific pack and love it.

Also she can pee while standing if she wants to. I carry a pstyle that allows me to pee without removing my pack. I just had to get used to peeing while standing. Also sure beats squatting in poison ivy or getting mosquito bites on my butt.

So I guess just make sure she doesn't over pack, make sure her pack fits comfortably (mens/unisex packs may not work depending on her frame), she can carry her share of the weight, and peeing while standing as a girl is possible :)

Have fun, hope this helps.

u/bannana · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

I love this ONE

Easy to clean, no small holes or tubes, pull forward and wipes the drips off too. Rinse with water and stick it in a ziplock. It's also the smallest and lightest I've found.

u/ZangiefThunderThighs · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

Not at all fitness related, but have you thought about how you're going to pee??
Get a P-style and practice, practice, practice!! Its basically a funnel that lets you pee standing up. I highly recommend it.

https://www.amazon.com/pStyle-Pink/dp/B002AA2LD2

u/olivinefromspace · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Lots of good info here already, so I'll just add this: get one of those pee funnels so that you can pee upright without having to take your pants all the way off. My favorite is this because it is hard plastic so easy to shake dry and store. They seem silly but I've found it to be one of those little things that make my outdoor experience a lot more enjoyable. The days of squatting in the woods and splashing pee on my boots are over. It makes having to pee outside a tent in the middle of the night much less unpleasant as well. Not to mention pit toilets - They can sometimes be super dirty and filled with flies. Not having to squat over that is a huge plus!

u/photorganic · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

You can with pStyle! http://amzn.to/2rTzAqC :)

u/cellblock2187 · 2 pointsr/crochet

Not quite the same thing, but I just made a very similar 'sock' for my pstyle stand-to-pee thing (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002AA8GDG/) I use while hiking. I hated having to put it in a plastic bag without having a way to immediately clean it so I made a cover out of wool, and I plan to lanolize it like a diaper cover.

I use a freshette for when I'm kayaking and don't have a good place to squat. I like it because the hose lets you direct your pee flow easier.

u/AbsolutelyPink · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Agreed. Those propane units are awesome.

You could also use a camp shower bag. Hang outside during the day to warm. Now, those aren't going to be very long showers, but enough to get a person clean. I suspect you'd need a bag per person.

Another option is this added to this. Again, it's going to be a short shower, but it will work.

u/mrCloggy · 1 pointr/SolarDIY

Square-plastic-bag + lots-of-water + gravity = spherical-blob + stress-points = fun-for-audience = safety-requirement-for-self (steam explosions are 'not funny').
You can try one of these (example) to experiment with.

Even with a simple 'flat plate' collector it is possible to reach 200⁰C+ temperatures, a pressure relief valve is mandatory (in my opinion), having some way to control to about 90⁰C maximum is a lot smarter.

Do you have game on your land? Maybe check reddit, craigslist, the bulletin board in town, and see if anyone would be willing to help you for a few hours in exchange for a place to hunt? I saw that offer on AirBnB a while back, you could camp for free for a week, with 2 hours of help per day.

Maybe empty out the qounset hut and make that more habitable, so you aren't all cramped together in one room all the time? Make it a simple retreat, just somewhere that you can decompress, sit in a chair and drink a beer, maybe take a solar shower out back and spend a few minutes naked in nature? Maybe she could read a book for an hour, or listen to the birds? Smoke a doobie and listen to Adele? Yall need to carve out some space for your emotional state and have a retreat from EVERYTHING - or else you're going to get so snappish and short with each other as all the stress is piling on. Good luck man, you're long on heart and grit, and you'll handle stuff. Baby steps. You're learning.

For $10 these are so fucking money. They heat up in the sun in an hour or two, although cold isn't too bad. 1 bag is good for about 2-3 showers. We brought two for a campsite of 9 last year and it was perfect. Highly recommended

Check out solar camp showers. They come in a wide variety of styles and sizes. I have this one it takes a fairly long time during the day for the water to get warm and it will never be as hot as it would coming out of a water heater, but if you just want something for warmer water for soaking dishes or bathing, most of them will do just fine. btw- with the coleman one, the hose and "showerhead" are absolutely awful. Make sure you look at reviews.

Aside from that a camping stove or rigging up coffee cans or something over a fire.

The Porta makes a good seat but emptying it is a nono. Use plastic bags and paper towels to create a virtual absorbant diaper. The end product will be about the same size as a diaper and is easily disposable with ur daily trash.

Having said that, the Porta potti is going to take up permenant space in your vehicle. It may be best to go with a handicap assist seat like this one. Or just go completely minimal with a space saving bucket that can also hold extra bags, tp, and paper towels while remaining completely innocuous.


Although, looking at it now, I don't feel comfortable with a permenant toilet seat in my rig (that I have to look at). Or anyone else for that matter. So it may be just as beneficial to go with a home depot 5gal bucket and possibly modify it with a pool noodle lol

I think , for emergencies, this is the way to go

You're going to want more cars/spaces. 2 years ago my group had 12 people with 4 cars (so 4 spots) with around 9 tents and an EZup. That was full to the brim. No spots for shower or potty.

Last year /u/rubbersoul93 built a shower for our camp out of PVC pipe, connectors, a few shower curtains, duct tape, one of these, and a big tub of water. http://i.imgur.com/8fBGnJo.png

I guess you could use the stall for a bathroom too and get something like this to use, but then you'd either have to dump it at the portapotties, pack it out, or live with it for 4 days.

No seriously. What if you don't have access? Sawdust (or biogel/bags, etc.) and this bucket will allow you use the restroom comfortably if the water gets turned off or you have no access for some reason. And until you do need it/use it, it can store all your other items.

u/hcshock · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

I bought a solar shower like this for my first year. I never used it. All the girls in my camp would use up all the water before I got a chance. I don't really like it anyway. It's fucking heavy when it's full and a bitch to carry, especially if you're far from water. I wouldn't recommend it.

I've seen some people hook up showers like mine in little tents like this, which is probably nice for privacy's sake, but if you're gonna spend all that money, you may as well just buy a shower pass and use the showers at Roo.

Someone at our camp bought a garden sprayer like this, which I thought was genius. It works great, you just need a buddy to spray you down.

In all honesty, I just use water jugs and pour them over my head in the mornings. Two gallons is exactly how much I need and it's simple and cheap. Plus, you never really want hot water anyway. It's so fucking hot out all the time that cold/room temperature water feels fucking great.

Depending on the car you have the back seat can fold down making a comfy spot to sleep. Just make sure to pick up a cylindrical pillow, or a small foam wedge since the drop off into the trunk can be drastic in some cars.

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.

Last year there were girls passing out these awesome 1 time use funnels in the womens porta potties. Peed standing up! it was so cool and I think you can buy them on amazon and carry a few around a day. I def plan on it. I am a little too short to do a proper hover. TRY THESE

Toothbrush & paste, peeing on trees, shovel to bury the poo. For cleanliness, baby wipes, truck stop showers, beach showers or something like this baby:

I’m in the same camp. I have been eyeing a used clawfoot tub for the backyard and then running a hose from the kitchen sink to fill it in winter. My short term solution is a $10 backpacking shower that I fill with water / ice cubes (Coghlan's Solar Heated Camp Shower, 5-Gallon, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000VNITQS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_2huNDbB0ZVTB7 )

I know this post is 3 months old now. But I find myself in need of a shower now too and figured this could help others who might be looking in the future.

Zodi Hot Tap Portable Instant Hot Shower

I still like the Eccotemp L5 better since it seems more durable and like it will provide hotter water easier. But, you'd need a water hose or a separate water pump. Plus somewhere to hook it up IE wooden post.

I also really hate those small bottles but apparently there's an adapter for a normal propane tank. Which the L5 comes with standard.

EDIT: Also @dangerousdave2244 I haven't been yet but the SCA has camping events that go for a week see Gulfwars or Pennsic. So that's one reason for a "shower". But, the hot water can also be used for cleaning your dishes and other things.

u/VanLifeCrisis · 1 pointr/vandwellers

I bought a thetford curve for my van, tho i did the bucket too. The curve is the most like a regular toilet. It isn't hard to empty but it isn't exactly pleasant either but that goes for all rvs really. Thee bucket is easier to empty, you just toss in a trash can somewhere.

I shower by truckstop or in warmer weather solar shower (black bag). They make propane hot camp showers. If i need privacy, i make a tent with my tarp off my van, but normal sized people can get these cool little shower tents.

u/AspiringVoiceOver · 1 pointr/LightningInABottle

Way to much work. Just buy this and this. 8/10 on the shower scale, + no weird foot fungus living in the trailer.

u/Actinopterygii · 1 pointr/wow

Quite the comprehensive list of suggestions. One thing to add - this lovely product for the ladies. Haven't tried it myself, but I first saw it on Top Gear in regard to long car trips (yes I think Jeremy did put it between his legs of course). Would definitely make peeing into bottles ever easier than with a wide mouth gatorade bottle!

u/BonaldMcDonald · 1 pointr/ZeroWaste

(Assuming you're female here)

I can't imagine that being super efficient or sanitary. You'd have to take your pants off entirely, get in the tub, pee, then rinse off your legs and dry off every time. Huge waste of time, probably not saving much water. More efficient solution would be to get a stand-to-pee device (they make them for when you want to pee standing up, like if you're camping). That way you can pee in the tub without getting pee all over yourself, and all you have to do is rinse it off (they're hydrophobic). You'll probably still need to use a few squares of toilet paper (which you can leave in the bowl without flushing), but if that bothers you then maybe look into family cloth.

u/The_Pale_Blue_Dot · 1 pointr/firstworldproblems

One of my friends tries to trick me into skewing my Amazon "suggested purchases" page.

Every now and then she'll send me a link for a shewee, and I'll unknowingly click it, meaning Amazon stops suggesting nice books and starts suggesting pink canisters that women piss into. It doesn't help that I'm male.

After I wised up to it, she started disguising the links with tiny URL. It's like a neverending game of one-upmanship.

u/Warkoala · 1 pointr/Austinmotorcycles

Consider getting one of these Frogg Togg Chilly Pads. I used one last summer riding through the arizona desert, and they make ALL the difference in the world, I promise. Also, the Frogg Togg brand towels are vastly superior to the knock-off brands. My dad and brother each had some no-name brand cooling towels, and theirs were always bone dry while mine was still moist and cool.

u/nv00212 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm from the south, and we're already hitting the upper 90s :( Fortunately my power bill is included in my monthly rent, so I can crank the AC as low as I want. I would recommend one of these towels. Wrap it around your neck, and it will cool your whole body down. They're awesome.

u/emmercury · 1 pointr/backpacking

To add to this, I use a Frogg Toggs Chilly Pad like this one and it stays cool a lot longer. Can also be used as a shammy of sorts to dry dishes, dry off a wet rain fly, etc. Just make sure to rinse it after use and let dry completely to prevent mold.

u/Sierrasclimber · 1 pointr/vandwellers

On big wall rock climbs overnight you have to do sort of this. However, climber normally go in a lunch sized paperbag. Then put paper bag in plastic bag. Then put plastic bag in pooptube. Typically, a pooptube is a 4" PVC pipe capped on the ends with screw caps. You could just use a 5 gallon bucket.

Or just do what whitewater rafters do and get a 5 gallon bucket and buy a seat. You can line the bucket with trash bags so it's reuseable.

u/D4O15S16E5 · 1 pointr/UlcerativeColitis

If theres room alluded for a bucket in said vehicle they make toilet seats that snap onto them and can make all the difference. Being stuck on the side of the road sitting on a seat wile dealing with cramping during a flare up is sooo much better than squatting or leaning against something. And in some cases you may be stuck there for a little longer than planned so all the more reason to have a seat. Make sure to have bags aswell. Also a can of ozium spray never hurts to have for smell incase theres an accident in the vehicle.

Hahaha dude ditch that cat toilet thing. Get a 5 gallon bucket and a toilet seat lid like this for it https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004KLY5CE/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1483286083&sr=8-1&pi=SL75_QL70&keywords=bucket+toilet+seat

I use mine probably once a week or so. Often prefer it to whatever public toilet is available. But of course mainly just go before showering at the gym as then it doesn't matter much how dirty the public toilet seems.

Anyway, just that, some black trash bags and the kitty litter makes for a pretty decent toilet. No smell really gets out with the lid closed either so you could even use it a couple of times before changing the bag if you had to.

Or use that tiny one for cats lol!

You can replace toothpaste, dry shampoo, and camp suds by taking Dr Bronners Peppermint.

You can also replace biowipes with EZ Towels. Combine them with some water and Dr Bronners and your butthole will be minty fresh.

Buy these pill towels! If you keep certain areas clean, you'll be thanking yourself by day 14.

Avoid fragrant deodorant, certain insects are drawn to the sweet smell, furthermore axe, ass, and body odor is a terrible combo.

Pack more water than you want, you'll never regret it.

Field dress your MREs prior to line work.

Keep your feet dry and pack extra socks. Dry feet = less chance of blisters.

We've used a pump up garden sprayer with an extended hose and it worked great.

We eventually changed to this "Simple Shower" due to its compactness. It screws onto a 1 or 2 liter water or soda bottle.

u/walters-walk · 1 pointr/Nootropics

I was taking a shower the other day and I thought about all the chemicals (including fluoride) coming into contact with my face, ballsack, mouth... and I decided to do something about it. I'm fortunate enough to own a RO water system, but not for a whole house. So I made a portable shower using this and this. I'll likely be using less water, so there's at least one plus. Will check my hormones next month to see if using RO water to wash affects anything.

u/MmmmBeer814 · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

I got something similar to this last year and it used it as a camp shower. If you split it with one other person it'll be cheaper than using their showers with no line. I also got this to use along with it, but you could just use water bottles.

u/cajungator3 · 1 pointr/blackfriday

It runs off a USB so if you have a USB adapter that fits in the cigarette port, it'll charge.

My plan is to use a shower pump like this:

Then boil some water on the stove, and mix it with room temp water and put enough in the floor of this to cover the pump:

https://www.amazon.com/Happy-Life-Portable-Plastic-Bathtub/dp/B008XSXQIO/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?keywords=Portable+deep+tub&qid=1567661792&s=gateway&sr=8-6

... set up underneath the roof fan, with some velcro holding up a hula hoop holding up the shower curtain tucked inside the tub. Get a thing to stand on so my feet aren't soaking, attach the shower head to the hula hoop, put a cloth bag over the pump as a rudimentary filter... Voila, recirculating, hot shower, for as long as I want, for just a few gallons of water.

Bonus, the shower water can be used to wash your clothes if you separate it from your regular gray water.

u/be_to_the_bop · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

Buy a shower tent and a portable shower, acquire something to stand on like SMALL wooden pallet so you're not standing on mud, bring a few 5 gallon jugs of water (empty or filled, you can fill it there) and you can shower right at your campsite. It won't be the best shower you've had but it'll do.

But honestly last year I saw a girl taking a shower using a small watering can. That actually seemed even easier than my shower set up.

u/hedonistichippie · 1 pointr/Coachella

I highly doubt anyone is going be creeping on you, they generally have better things to do. But I still recommend bringing a portable shower like this. My group has been using it for the past 6 years and its a savior.
