Post Re: Festival Tips and Tricks...
All I can say is that I've been to a lot of festivals over the years, but this is the very first where people make their own portapotties in the campground.

I know I can see my own bathroom at home, but that doesn't mean I need to hear and see my neighbor's! Just sayin...

Plus, I don't know about you all, but my toilet at home flushes.

To each their own, I guess. But I'd rather use a Porto potty and not have to worry about it then make my own toilet and have to worry about cleaning it the mess.

If I need to drop a deuce at 5am, I can without hitting a destroyed porto-john.

Nothing worse than snapping off a deuce in a s#%tty hot loud door slammin blue porto-john.

It wouldn't be bad if people learned how to not dump on the seat.

Mine is mainly for the late hours.

I cannot for one second fathom how someone would say they would rather use a dirty s#%t stained porto potty rather than their own private outhouse... :roll:

Sports authority has a nice outhouse/shower, its pretty good size too, on clearance for 9.99. They were 60 to start. I figure even if I pitch it after it will be money well spent. In fact I bought a backup they were so cheap.

I would never camp without my porto potty! I have a store bought one which takes sanitary bags with absorbent deoderant stuff that absorbs odor. I change it regularly and have never had a problem with stinking anyone out. I have a tent that zips especially for my potty. It's my favorite piece of camping equipment. And of course I would not set it up right next to anyone's tent. Once it is set up, it is up to others not to set their tents up right next to my potty if they are worried about it. Really, this has never been a problem and I have used it at every festival.
