Here's a topic!! But here's the deal--I think it might be even worse peeing sitting down in the desert than on the AT. (At least you have a chance of not sitting in something really painful. ) But at least you would get it that I have never liked the whole idea of squatting to pee. For one thign it is messy. I read the archive and came up with the idea that one can stand up, but this takes some practice and control.
My hikes are by no means backpacks, but are getting longer.
I am planning to go out half day again next weekend. Eventually I'm sure I'll work up to all day. It means its getting inevitable.
I have seen these things you can buy that are basically, well, funnels. But the concept seems simple enough. Prices range from $12-26 with shipping. I don't know why it can't be diy.
I tried my own version today, uh er, practicing standing. I think there are flaws in it. Anyone see one online? Or have a good idea here? I tried doing a websearch and you get, uh,er, interesting sites.
BTW, my idea consisted of a piece of heavy cardstock shaped as a triangle and rounded up towards the top. The cardstock isn't too environmentally
friendly, but I have an idea if I get a working concept. It splashed
on feet but I'm not sure you can avoid this in the shower.
