only porta pottie shit i took inside the grounds at coachella was 2010 saturday afternoon right before bassnectar i was baking...gladly my friend and i had JUST left the heineken dome and had some of those fans....i was constantly waving it and was still sweating..i cant even imagine without it
last year now that i think about it i deuced every morning..it really wasn't too bad tho, maybe they had just been cleaned idk
The only time to shit is at 11. When they are nice and clean inside the grounds
Nothing like working up a sweat while shitting in the midday heat.
To urinate... my friends want to just bring adult diapers and piss in those, then wrap them up and throw them away.
key to a truly satisfying morning glory: get up during sunrise before it gets hot
i even went to the portopotties next to the roller rink one morning and there were no lines. that's about as fresh as the potties can get
Get up during sunrise? 4 hours of sleep? No thanks.

Until I cry out 'hold, enough!"
Has anyone ever thought about something like this? Or has brought one along?
ok I do this every year:
The night before the first day of the festival(Thursday night) eat lots of carbs and veggies right? Wake up and have a LIQUID breakfast such as two bottles of Odwalla or another fruit smoothie.
You should crap before you leave and then have nothing in ur stomach when you show up. I eat around 1-2 for lunch and then just hold it in till after I leave around 12am.
I have only had to shit once at Coachella!! (Been to every Coachella but #7) It was last year and I got so panic stricken I wanted to leave for 20 mins. I found a super clean porta pottie in the VIP way in the back that had just been cleaned!
The biggest mistake is to eat a huge breakfast everyday..huge breakfast = huge crap around 2-5 pm during the HEAT!
It was a fucking religious experience
this is a funny thread
Liquid breakfast and lunch is the key. Plus stay away from 90% of the food there.

And to answer this thread - I poop like normal during coachella. I just use a ton of toilet paper to wipe down the seat, and then cover it with TP before I sit down. It's gross and sweaty in there but must be done.
another good idea would be...take toilet paper and squeeze that hand sanitizer into the toilet paper..then wipe down the toilet seat with the hand sanitizer..i'm still all for covering the toilet seat with tp after doing so tho..can never get too cautious!
I generally only poop every other day, and have held it for up to a week before. That week I did nothing but eat peanut butter sandwiches, and when it came out it looked like Jif and had the consistency of hot tar. So because of the way my body is, I only have had to poop once at a festival. I had a backpack with me and had to wear it while going because the floor was wet.
How about masturbating? Three or four days without can be pretty tough. I definitely sprayed some semen inside a porta-potty a couple times this summer at Bonnaroo. I guess it's interesting to do that while knowing people are shitting around you, that there is a pile of hundreds of peoples' shit gurgling in chemicals below you, and that there are good bands playing within fifty yards. I wrote a little poem about using portable toilets if anyone is interested.
Twenty five strangers shit
in upright plastic coffin
and all forget to flush.
I must have looked as if I were a diseased creature. Covered in cigarette cartons like bird shit, smeary colored face, drinking wine out of a pair of sweat pants. A dead baby hung off the side of my head -- crying to get high on smokes and glue.
The disgusting porto potties are just part of the experience. Take the good with the bad. And one of the funniest/most disgusting conversations my camp group has had was because of a person's experience in one of those.

We all know there are those "other" restrooms. The nice ones with a/c and a faucet. Find them, and your good.
Pooping in those portoloos is like a detox sauna and a chemical hazard at the same time, cancels each other out I suppose.
My oldest daughters first trip to the porta potty last year surprised her with 2 folks getting it on in the damn thing. Just about made her throw up.
There's not enough hand sanitizer in the world to ever get me to sit down on a porta-potty seat! I'd just as soon walk home and use my own litterbox... Which is generally what we do since we live within a mile. Last year though, I really wanted to go the weekend without going back to the house, and I believe I made the hovering attempt at pooping. Still didn't work. It's as if my dot said, "Have you seen what's in there? Fuck that, I can wait!"
Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
this is what you have to do. you need to take a dump, knowing you will shower right after.
fucking assholes. I knew it wasn't a good idea to click on this thread while i was eating something.
"What goin on in there?"
