Default Portable Camping/SHTF Toilet - The less glamorous side of prep

Came across this in the CTD catalog today:




http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/CAMP275-1.html

Can probably be found from other sources as I would rather not buy from CTD, but an interesting product. Could be kept in the car for camping/driving trips for those with families...

^ Cut the bottom off a 5 gallon bucket, line it with a bag and place it over a small dug hole. Primo camp toilet on a budget.

I just picket up a couple of these. Fits right on top of a 5-gallon bucket. Line it with a plastic bag, and you're good to go.

The Luggable Loo definitely will do the job. $20 at Amazon with bucket, or $13 for just the seat. Throw in some bags and some TP, throw it somewhere you'll forget about it unless you need it, and you're good.

But also don't forget that you can flush a toilet manually by dumping in water. If you have some grey water source (water left over from dishes?) you can dump that into a toilet to flush it.

I'd be terrified of it collapsing.

With a bucket and some bags you can make do. The seat is nice, but not a must have. As far as camping I take a shovel and some single sheet TP.

I've got one of these for my 4x4 camping trips:





I usually have a large supply of the bags on hand because we find some good deals when you buy in quantity. We could certainly use it in a SHTF situation.

Those are nice. On all my deployments we used a 5 gallon Gatorade cooler and wag bags. Ammo crates work too.

I can't stand the round portable toilets because they offer no for space for my frank and beans to properly rest while sitting. Shoved under a sharp rim, pressed against a plastic bag, dangling in muck....I end up just digging a hole. Maybe a bigger bucket kit would work better?
The girls are fine with these though.

2 additional words I learned from Honeyville Farms and the luggable loo seat.

KITTY LITTER!

I got a bucket, a seat, some garbage bags, and a couple bags of kitty litter. Saves water, and hopefully keeps the odors down.

Pretty sure that's an assault pooper, no way would CTD ship that to CA .

I'm a big fan of the bucket method, used many a time when I was in the Navy and couldn't leave the plant for an emergency revisiting of last nights dinner. Bag in the bucket, some rags around the rim to soften the inevitable sharp piece of plastic from stabbing my cute butt cheeks, and some breath holding .

Since this seems to be actually be a useful discussion I have to ask those of you that camp with these things, what do you do with the bags? Is it a single use deal, tie them up and store them to haul back home with the rest of the trash? Single use and burn? Multiple use until full then tie off and take home?

When I first started taking my girlfriend camping she was all for the idea of the bucket, until I brought up the issue of what to do with the bags. The one time I've used this camping I had the luxury of a stash of cheap bags which I just tied off and tossed into a roaring fire. Just curious what others do.

Burn them. After three combat deployments and crapping in a bag for seven months during each deployment, I can go pretty much anywhere. Wag bags are soooo much better than cat holes.

The "containment bags" are pretty durable, but I still double bag into a one gallon ziplock. We pack out EVERYTHING from the trails we run, too many enviro-nazis looking for any reason to shut us down (4 wheelers).

I have girls, so we can get a couple uses out of a bag until someone takes a dump...

The bags are reasonably durable, and you end up double bagging them (there is the bag you do your business in, and then a ziplock that you put that in once you are done). They are designed to be single use bags, but I do know of some folks in the 4x4 community that talk about using them more than once. You can buy the poo-powder separately so you can add some more for enhanced odor control. I think the more-than-once crowd talks about 2-3 uses per bag.

When we're on a 4x4 camping trip we use the bags once. I bring one or more cheap 5 gallon plastic pails with snap on lids like you can buy at Lowe's or Home Depot, and we put the used bags in those. That does a pretty good job of containing odors. We went on a 6 night/7 day trip to the Maze in Canyonlands National Park where you are required to pack everything out (I guess that means everything except your pee ), and four of us filled about 1-1/2 five gallon pails. No matter how much you compress the bag before sealing it they have an unfortunate tendency to expand from gas production. One pail is more than enough for a small group on a 2-3 day trip. I usually toss the pails in the trash - I think they cost less than $2.00 each.

Yes, this is the style to go with. I am laughing at one made from cardboard.

There are plenty of vendors out there that sell a flip lid seat that mounts securely on a 5-gal bucket. Line, fill with sawdust - or even use the same special blues you see RV's use, which will keep multi-use troubles down.

Thoughs loo lids work much better with a 6 gallon bucket. A cheap toilet seat would work better, comfort wise, then put the lid back on. pew Use ash from the fire pit to neutralize.

I don't understand the point of bagging it and taking it somewhere or burning it. Whenever I've been camping it's just find a good spot and go, just like problemchild said.

Why not have an open frame you sit on, over a small hole, and after every use shovel enough dirt back into the hole to keep the smell down, then once the hole has been filled move the frame somewhere else and dig a new hole?

It's the whole concept of "Leave no trace" (and it's a whole lot more sanitary)

Part of the Rubicon trail (a sweet camping area) was closed off due to high traffic and nasty @#$%ers who couldn't dig a decent cat hole to poop in





This campaign was launched to educate the weekend warriors about the "White flowers", and it seems to have worked... the trail is usually spotless

during my freshman year of high school we had an 8 hour lock down. after the lock down the school noticed that all of the trashcans were full of piss and shiet and a pile of shiet in the dark room of the photo lab. the next week the school bought a tarp, 5 gallon bucket, bag of cat litter, and a few rolls of toilet paper for each class.

Yeah, each of our classrooms has a 5 gallon bucket with seat/lid, AM/FM Radio w/batteries, package of bucket liners, bag of TP, wet wipes, packs of water and some of those god awful emergency food bricks. Oddly enough I don't think we have any of those at the district office, but my house is within walking distance and I don't see myself needing a bucket at work.
