One day it’s going to happen; those roller dawgs you ate off the grill at the shady truck stop with the $2.00 diesel have activated the release valve in your guts and they want to leave now! The problem is you are out in the badlands and have no proper toilet in a hundred-mile radius. So where do you poo?
First off, that atom-thin grocery bag from the truck stop is a no-no. Those things are not proper waste disposal containers and we all have seen what happens to those bundles of joy.
At the worst, use the portaloos that fit onto an empty drink bottle you can put the cap back onto when you’re done. There are also collapsible bottles that can be stored in the glove box.
For those times you need to sit down, you can get a folding toilet chair and some heavy-weight garbage bags from the sporting goods store. A step up would be a five-gallon bucket with a snap-on toilet seat lid to handle the larger demands.
A proper setup would be a camping toilet with a removable cassette that can be emptied out in a rest area or RV park waste dump. Some RV parks are now allowing truck cabs to park onsite, giving drivers some improved creature comforts.
Got a better way to handle the business on the go? I’d prefer an actual restroom, but we can’t all get what we want.
