    Default The Midnight Piss

    Just curious how others manage their midsleep urge to urinate. No genuine interest in individuals habits, just wanna see how the group lines up.
    up over the hills, theres nothing to fear
    theres a pub across the way with whisky and beer
    its a lengthy journey on the way up to the top
    but it ain't so bad if you have a great big bottle o'scotch

    What, No pee in the bag and wake up after the fact?
    Oh, I guess that would be "other" sorry.

    Step outside, walk 50' from tent area, pee/wipe/bury TP/wash hands, walk back to tent, get back into tent/sleeping bag, go back to sleep.

    I carry a propel bottle, it's got a wide mouth and its cap is pretty sturdy.

    Then, laugh at me, I keep it in my sleeping bag if it's cold out... i mean, it's a bottle of hot liquid.

    Isn't The Midnight Pee a metal group from the 80's?

    I'm almost 66, so the midnight pee is normal. For you young guys, the older I (you?) get, the more I pee and the slower I walk. A vision of things to come. Mark S.

    1st - try to let out a fart to help make room for the expanding bladder.
    2nd - try to hold it in
    3rd - bite the bullet and step out to pee.

    Default Waterworld

    I have one of the urine recycling devices that Kevin Costner used on Waterworld. No need to even carry a water bottle to bed at night......all in one.

    It's made by NSR, called the Urineworks.

    admittedly, I googled it. I came up empty handed.

    I certainly don't go at the nearest tree, but I do my part to water the flora.
    The trail was here before we arrived, and it will still be here when we are gone...enjoy it now, and preserve it for others that come after us

    If it is cold out, try to hold it until I just can't stand it. Then I get up and make coffee.
