    I have never used a porta-john, and hopefully will never have to, even if I have a 4 mile drive back to my hotel for the use of my room.

    We had some “Port-O-Potty” humor in Lio last Monday (2 VII 12), and now Young Master Sedgwick Nuttingham expatiates vividly on the Booth of Horrors! I concur: I’d rather squat behind a bush, if necessary, than use one of those fetid chambers of unspeakable vileness (and I speak as someone who has experienced some really squalid facilities in bygone days in remote areas of Greece and in other Mediterranean countries).

    “Public facility”?
    Wat da ya mean? A train station? A library? A police station? The town hall?

    It was from the ‘Just After Sunset’ book. The story was called ‘A Very Tight Place’.

    I hope this is the last we see of Sedge for quite some time.

    Toilets in Japan are the same way.

    That is what they seem like an a hot long day out in the sun with crowds of people, but I would hate to think what it would be like under those circumstances Without one!

    I have had to use “natures” restroom in the wood with the bears and leaves for clean up. Not fun but no where near as bad as
    the communial WC’s we had in Viet Nam. I suspect that other
    military members have had similare experiences and horror
    stories. But the Port-A Poties have by far got to be the worse of the lot.

    Having camped at numerous rural public campgrounds, spent years working and camping during Renaissance Faire weekends (sometimes even being on-site a whole week beforehand for booth-building,) and being a volunteer at several large outdoor events, I have used dozens, if not hundreds, of portable toilets.

    30 years ago they were all pretty disgusting, but most have gotten far better, especially in the last half-dozen years or so.

    Some places even have long flatbed trucks with large restrooms on them, with stalls that feature modified flush toilets and running, though non-potable, water for hand-washing.

    But even the smelly ones won’tkill you…. and considering what you’re leaving behind there, are a far better alternative to NOT having them.

    You who blithely ignore the portables and do your business in the surrounding woods or countryside are selfishly polluting the atmosphere and the watershed, making an unhealthy, disgusting mess for the rest of us to encounter, helping breed flies and rats, and spreading contamination.

    Any one else remember the “X-Files” episode where there was a humanoid monster lurking in the Port-O- Potty..(shudder).

    11 years of construction. As bad as these things are in the summer, they’re actually worse in the winter (the blue water freezes solid. Think about it).

    When you do a 10K race with 50,000+ of your closest friends …. you have to choose wisely, which set of port-o-pottys you use.
