    I've found that if your eyeballs are starting to float and there's not a private place in sight, it's best to step back in the sleeper for some emergency relief. A vessel capable of holding 32 ounces works best for me. A good thing to remember is that your bladder holds about 30 ounces, but you should only fill it to 90% capacity or you might explode.

    I don't piss where I sleep. There are plenty of rest areas, truck stops or in a real pinch I check the 5th wheel on the side of an on ramp.

    I'm just like you...But over the years I've been glad to have a empty jug a time or two.Most states have shut several of their rest areas down(they blame homos,but it looks like a money issue to me) and a lot of states now will put something on you you can't pay for if you stop on a ramp(another way to make money off you) and most TS are so overcrowded that a quick stop is nearly impossible.A fifth wheel check is still my best bet,but I understand the beauty of a pee bottle when all else fails.Just dispose of them properly if you ever have to use one and it's no big deal.

    Just get one of these [​IMG]

    Add H2O, add chemicals, lock the lid down when you travel. No smell, no fuss and best of all you'll never have to search for a place to do your thing when nature calls. :biggrin_25523:

    If you have a daycab you can cut a hole in the bottom of your drivers seat and mount it there and put the toilet paper on your turn signal lever.Or better yet,just take the drivers seat out and sit on that.Sweet!!!Take a dump and keep rolling at the same time.:biggrin_25523::biggrin_25525:

    Well, make sure it's padded and has air-ride...oh, the massage option is a nice-to-have too. :biggrin_25523:

    You mean that blue terrycloth lid cover with the matching rug wouldn't be enough padding?:biggrin_2559:

    My daughter went on an Outward Bound, 26 ft boat, trip with 12 people. They ate, slept and used the Honey Bucket right there on that boat! She told me the key phrase "Eyes Away!" Least you have your privacy!

    The guide/captain just had his poncho on and paddled and pooped!

    I's away alright, wwwwwwwwwwayyy away! :biggrin_2559:

    Still, it was a very rewarding experience for her.
     
    Muleskinner Thanks this.

    That must be why I've never stopped in the Bronx to take a leak. I've slept there too.

    But, I've never slept in Atlanta rush hour traffic going north on I-85. How do you accomplish this?

    Can you be a little more specific as to which ramps are available in LA ? I'm primarily interested in the ones that won't result in having a "sex offender" charge added to my criminal record and having to register as a sex offender...for taking a wizz.
