    Outside loo: You'll need a 5 gallon bucket, a pool noodle and plastic bags. 1) Line the bucket with the trash bag. 2) Slit the noodle lengthwise and cut it shorter so that it fits about 3/4 of the way around the rim of the bucket. 3) Slip the noodle onto the rim of the bucket. 4) Thread a roll of toilet paper onto the bucket handle for easy access. When each person is done, they tie up their bag and put another one on for the next person. All used bags should be stored in a much larger bag for disposal late on. If you use plastic biodegradable bags, you won't have to worry about the environment! Privacy while you do your thing isn't always an option. But hey, it's camping!

    Smart idea. Better than Duggar’s hole and putting your rump over a stump like we did.
