    I've had similar experience at Kehe Foods warehouse in Romeoville, IL no public restroom for drivers. I just went in a corner by the docks and let my stream go...being a diabetic, we drink and pee ALOT!

    Had to go so bad one time, I stopped off at the oasis off I-294 in Hinsdale, IL on the IL Tollway, didn't pay attention to what restroom I went into, came out of stall and it was the Women's restroom! Talk About Embarraasment :biggrin_25524:

    I stopped in middle of nowhere oregon, side of the road, absolutely nothing around just beautiful pine trees and nice little stream flowing below the road... Those are the absolute favorite places I love to stop , no loud readers no loud conversations outside ur sleeper at 2am, complete quiet, if ya gotta take a dump grab some tp and find a pine tree , nobody around to raise a hoot . one way to get around places not having a bathroom is to come to flatbed , I get unloaded real quick , don't even have time to think about if I have to #### or not, makes life much easier

    man your avatar got me all hot and bothered. thats a real truck right there. don't make em like that no more and they're headed to the scrap yards in droves nowdays. crying shame that i was born in '92 and not 30 or 40 years earlier. Life is quite unfair

    10,4 on that drivar, the one in my avatar she's not mine, but one of these days I'll have me a nice big shop where I can bring some of these babies back to life, I wonder in 30 years of any of these new trucks will be around

    5 gallon bucket and tall kitchen garbage bags. And look for a "Lovable Loo" toilet seat at your local camping/outdoors store. Cost a couple bucks, BUT a lifesaver if and when you have an internal mudslide pounding at the sphincter.

    Be sure to dispose of responsibly when done.

    Luck in battle.

    To be honest if there is no public restroom there's a way require very little traffic, and walls of trailers and a truck door left open though always only for too much liquid never had an urgent issue for #2 but that's just me I drink water like no one business I put away almost a gallon a day, once while it is a gallon. Also if you ever get chance to pick up charcoal activated or none charcoal capsule both work wonders they use it for poison and I hear works for gas I use it for risky food like fruit that I know 50/50 chance get me sick. because it is 2 weeks old.

    You can contact OSHA regarding bathroom policies. Even if they are allowed to deny you services you can report their treatment of employees as a third party and for all you know, employees there dont have a bathroom because you aren't allowed to use one. I did that once because the receiver wouldn't allow me to leave the facility and would not provide a bathroom. But I have never been back there so be sure you never want to see them again. You probably wont be seeing them again.

    I'm NOT pooping in a garbage can at a building that has bathrooms that locks me in. Thats a human rights dysfunction. You have no idea how hard the United Nations works to ensure proper sanitation because it stops spreading disease. It should only take you twice as long to poop as to pee. If you are taking longer than that you are constipated. Probably dehydrated. Probably you should be able to squat and not need to sit.
