Many people purchased portable camp toilets for the 2008 Rubithon trip. I think I will buy one for CM2010.

Which ones did you buy, where did you get it, and how did you like it?

I have the Pett system. It has served it purpose very well for camping and hunting. The tent makes an excellent shower enclosure too! Check ebay and Craigslist as some are bought and never used and resold. Serch - porta potty, portable toilet, etc...

I have the PETT system as well. I think in the vendors section of Mud you will see a link for trdparts4U which is Toyota of Dallas. They seemed to have a good price going.

Thats the same system that you used on the Rubicon. I think you know it well after that week :D

We have a Luggable Loo, which is basically a 5 gallon bucket with a toilet seat. It's cheap (actually cheaper than building a groover from an old 20mm ammo can) but also simple and does the job. It's not something you'd substitute for a real chemical toilet or outhouse, but also takes up less space. We use standard WAG bags available from various places, PETT, etc. The toilet and enough bags for a couple of weeks all fit inside the bucket. We don't have a privy, but borrowed Uncle Ben's for Rubithon. Normally we'll just carry the toilet out of sight, but then again we're usually not in a big group setting. For CM or the like you probably want a privacy tent.

I must have missed that meeting. We had that in the meeting raffle, really?

I have had 2.

I took my old system to the Rubicon.

The coleman tank system. Just like this. But clean up is a bit messy. Wife did not like so much.

PETT is probably the best known but spendy at 75-100.00 price tag.

I found this at Walmart for 25.00, very similar to the PETT. No splash back.

folds flat. IH8MUD sticker fits great on lid!

Me too. Kim and I use the same system. Works fine, compact, no mess, no stink. A box (12) of the bags costs about 20-30 bucks and the luggable loo lid and 5 gallon bucket holds all the gear. The used/full bags can go into the trash.

For sho :rolleyes:

I purchased mine back before CM07 and it has served us well - I really bought it for the :Princess:s to use at pit stops on the trails. I purchased it from the vendor that I think was a supporter of the club or something back then. Not cheap but versatile and having the shelter is nice for privacy, just don't leave your lattern on in there with you at night :lmao:

But, why buy one for CM10? Aren't we going to have decent toilets to use :confused:

We have used the wag bags in our camper actually with great results. I did not want to use the black tank and have to clean it after one month of use.

I suggest some sort of Pett set up like everyone else has. I bought the cheap one for our non existent Rubicon trip. It is a folding fishing chair that uses the wag bags. The chair was $11 and the bags vary depending on the amount you but at a time.

Tent is optional:rolleyes:

+1 on the PETT and the fact it folds up so small, an advantage over the Luggable Loo I think. It also has a neat pack it fits into, which carries a few Wag Bags and a roll of BW. (The tiny BW packs in the Wag Bags simply will NOT do! - ew, was that a pun?). I used a different brand of shelter than the PETT, but I think the PETT is better quality (mine is a TravelJohn, don't bother, fragile frame clips and it twists in the wind if you don't guy it VERY well. Honestly, though, my test environment is Wyoming... :lmao:).

In a tent scenario, the vestibule makes a good loo shelter. Of course I have a 6 man expedition tent so the vestibule is adequately sized. (A 6 man tent is a two man to me... LOL).

The downside is the price - WAY overpriced. That Wally World Chinese model looks much better in that regard. Nothing is worse than a collapsing loo in a moment of crisis however... :lmao:

Looks like Cleanwaste is cloning the PETT system but I don't see a price advantage.

That is the very same identical pack, toilet, and tent though.

Note the bulk poo powder if you want to build a community groover. Lots of stuff.

why do you need a toilet if these new rolling CM toilets are better than slickrock?

I am not good at holding it Saturday - Tuesday. That could hurt.

Only because you don't want to walk, or you want to be self contained. By the same argument, you may as well have brought a PETT toilet & tent to slickrock.

I know I'm not planning on camping anywhere near the community crappers. ;)

Also, the less the community pots are used by those of us with other options, the cleaner they'll stay, which will hopefully make for better a experience for all those who are skeptical of camping out at BFE this year. :)

just go to City Market in the morning like everyone else... you were probably driving that way anyway. They've got a Starbucks in there too, if you don't want to mess with cleaning that that French press/coffee maker/contraption.. :D

Hmmm. So at 10 PM I get dressed and drive to City Market, eh? Or first thing in the morning when the urge strikes... nope!
Captain Morgan is all about convenience & comfort when roughing it!

Rolling over, boiling water, and fresh french press coffee without leaving my snuggly sleeping bag. For like, $.50. That's my idea of a vacation atmosphere!!
