    Unhappy Toilets!!

    I have never been and I have one burning question that has been bugging me. I have seen many pics of portable toilets. Are there any real toilets around? There is just something wrong about a porta potty in 100 degree weather!!!

    Yeah, there's a couple trailers of flushable toilets, with faucets and everything. Lines are disgustingly long, though. If one must take a dump, I recommend holding it all day and night until using one of these first thing each morning.

    Empire Polo Field = Huge portapotty for Horses
    don't believe me? just do a sample soil taste....it already smells like horse shit out there...you won't notice a difference in the portapit. Actually new advances have been made in the portapit industry that can tame the gnarliest of smells. Personally i'd watch out for the semen on the TP instead of worrying about the smell.

    So true. Don't worry about the bathrooms too much. Usually you're so dehydrated that you only need to use it once or twice during the day.

    Im sure its nothing compared to the port-a-potties they had for Stilldream. A campout up by Angel's Camp. Only a weekend thing and the toilets began literally overflowing. Bloody tampons coming out, diarrhea, everything. I am not joking. It still haunts me.

    I never had to wait more than 2 - 3 minutes last year for the flushies. YMMV.

    The overabundance of port-o-potties has convinced me to carry these items with me at all times:

    • a roll of toilet paper
    • toilet seat covers
    • sanitary hand wipes
    • portable light source (i.e. glowstick, etc., for night time porto use)
    I'm starving... let's get some f*ckin french toast!

    In 03 (first year of onsite camping) there was a toilet trailer between the main stage and outdoor theatre that actually had air conditioning. I was VERY early into the show both days and chilled in there for a bit and did my business before it got crowded.

    The main porta-potties by days end will seem to be perched atop a glorious river of chocolate ala Wonkas factory or the land of Dairy Queen.

    You will be hungry and tempted to sample from this mighty chocolate river, but be warned that very little of it is chocolate and that which is has already made the rounds through the digestive systems of other individuals. Best to just keep a Twix with you instead, if you have a sweet tooth or are a fat German child.

    I rate this post poo-riffic.

    Hovering while holding your breath is a necessary skill for chicks at Coachella.

    It makes your poo turn a weird color of dark brownish/green. But it has always helped me.

    Fortunately in my past experience I haven't had to defecate during the fest. This extended festival in the coming week looks challenging.

    I've been in training to go #2 early in the AM. Anything to avoid crapping in the portaloos later in the day.

    I'm glad they clean the potties, but the poo-scented dust it stirs up is awful. I remember last year approaching the toilets right around dusk when the sun reveals all the dust and whatnot floating in the air. It was like a giant cloud of fecal dust. I got the hell out of there.

    iv been crapping in porta-jons in phoenix in the summer for years and all i have to say is if you have to go bad enough you will use them regardless of how gross they look or smell and if you are dumb enough to sit before checking the status on the tp a shirt sleve or a sock will sufice

    They have made the bathroom situation MUCH more bearable. I remember the first two years *cringe*.

    Thumbs up Re: Toilets!!

    There are always some toilets with running water in between the Sahara tent and the Gobi. and they are wonderful !!!!!! Other wise go to your local Target and buy toilet seat covers 5 for 1 dollar and they will make your shittin and pissin experience a wee bit better.

    One needs to use caution when making a deposit in a freshly cleaned Porto Pot. Blue water splash back is no laughing matter.

    LOL! That's why the TP is always gone so quickly. People (myself included) putting down a thick layer to avoid potential splash-back, blue water or otherwise.
