      Thumbs up MYO Travel Potty

      I came across this idea on Pinterest, but the creator of this cool Portable Potty are the folks at Puget Sound Preppers you take a bucket, a section of pool noodle, a trash bagHomemade Porta Potty and you make your own potty bucket.

      Just line the bucket with the trashbag, slip the slit pool noodle over the edge for a toilet seat and attach a roll of TP to the metal handle. Instant, Portable Potty with no fuss!

      This is wonderful for camping, long car trips where you don't necessarily want to use public restrooms (especially with little kids!), etc.

      What do you think?

      (Mod Note: added credit to the creator of this idea!)

      Awesomely different but very useful. I think I'll need to make for traveling with grandkids that hate to go in the woods. I'm thinking of putting a little cat litter in the bottom of the bag.

      A good tip we have used on our travels with a similar toilet. Have a container of garden lime beside the toilet. Cover waste with a sprinkling of the lime following each use. This helps break down the matter and reduces offensive odours dramatically.
      Bio degradable bags should be used as well to aid in disposal. Replace bag daily at least!

      OK, this is a silly idea...

      First, what are you going to do with the bag? You can't just dump it in the garbage, as that would be a potentially huge mess for someone, unsanitary, and I'd have to imagine illegal.

      Sure, you could dump it down your toilet, but only if it was a little bit.

      And yes you could put it in a pit toilet, but then what do you do with the bag?!

      It's a neat idea, until you have to figure out what to do with the results in a responsible way.

      Do what was done on Road Hogs, hang in a tree so the bears don't get it. Actually have to agree, can't put this in the garbage because of human waste. Best place to dump is in a outhouse and wash the bag out before depositing in the garbage.
