Outside. I'd go outside over a CLEAN porta-potty, if given the opportunity and enough privacy!

outside for sure, being from the country (and somewhat of a germaphobe) i have no qualms with a cat hole over a bucket of human leavings.

How dirty is the shithouse? Is the odor strong enough to trigger my gag reflex or just enough to make me hold my breath? Define outside: Central Manhattan or enough woods to ensure my disgrace is private? I have perfected the method of grabbing a sapling in the woods and leaning back while I launch a brown torpedo. I can shat and not hit my drawers/pants/boots. Having said that, as long as I won't be a public spectacle, I'd prefer to expend my shit spackle outside.

I prefer the alfresco poop above all others at any time, if it's good enough for bears it's certainly good enough for me.

Outside provided it is not winter or not raining

There is something primal and satisfying about doing the business outside, not that I make a habit of it. Portable toilets, on the other hand, are disgusting and un-natural regardless of how clean they appear. So crap in a hot, festering plastic shit box, or outside in a spot where I'm likely the first since a caveman to grace with my recycled food? Not a hard choice for me. Outside.

I would take some toilet paper from in the porta potty and use it to wipe after I shit behind it.

I have done both--outdoors and porta-potty. Either is suitable given certain conditions. Outside is fine if there are (a) no human observers close, (b) no poison ivy or similar plants close to my bottom, (c) no ground bees, fire ants, or other dangerous insects, and (d) no quicksand. The porta-potty is OK if it is (a) upright, (b) clean enough (see below), (c) cooler than 95 degrees inside, and (d) supplied with toilet paper.

What is clean enough for a porta-potty? I should be able to walk to the seat without getting my shoes in poop. I should be able to sit on the seat without touching someone else's poop. If the seat has urine on it, I should be able to put up the seat and hover to make the drop, without a cloud of flies eating my poop before it lands.

Either place--if I have to go, I'll find a way.

MSG guidelines apply for me too.

However, my daughter when younger, like 4 years old, needed to go #2 while at a Labor Day picnic at the park. Everyone else at the park had all ready gone #2. They were all FULL. Shit and toilet paper was oozing out the edges of every last one of them. I've never seen anything so nasty. I felt sorry for my daughter. We had to get her to the car and get her to the Seven Eleven as fast as we could.

She made it.

Then I felt sorry for the city worker dudes who had to come on Tuesday to pick up the Ories or clean them.

Yuck.

All things being equal, I'll use a port-a-potty. The EPA will have an easier time dealing with my SuperFund site, if it's already contained in a plastic shelter.

I will always choose shitting outside over using a porta-potty.

MSG, part of the fun of shitting outside is the risks involved. I say bring on the bees, human observers, and quicksand---and throw in a few snakes and a bear while you're at it.

My method is superior....you can eat the tomatoes and drink the water with no treatment required. Don't put the poo in the water and you don't have to figure how to remove the poo from the water.

Postman, I agree with you about the fun being the risks involved--to a point. While being witnessed in the act might have a certain thrill if seen by certain people, I would not have my witness be a sheriff. While having flying insects around might generate a certain adrenalin rush, I don't wish to be stung repeatedly while in the middle of ejecting a turd, nor, alternatively, jumping up to run away with pants down and turd hanging (or swinging with every step till it drops, likely in my pants). I'll check the area first. Similarly for quicksand--if the ground is not solid, the time to discover that is not when it is slowly rising to meet my turd descending.

I don't know about anyone else...but the port-a-potty on the tee box at the 15th hole of the Island Golf Course here is special. I always stop, if for nothing else, to pee there, but I have on more than one occassion drop a bomb or two as well. It allows me to think hard on that missed putt on 14 for a birdie, go over my club selection and ball placement on the upcoming 15th, which is a short 165 yard par 3 hole, but entirely over water to a very small green...too much club, water, too little club, water. In the end, after going through all that, ensconsed in the vapid muck and mire that is the port-a-potty at 15, life ain't bad at all.

PeePeeDianeOh gosh, I would rather poo outside anytime over some filthy, smelly, germy, outhouse. Our family went camping a lot ,growing up, so all us girls would grab our roll of TP. and hike down the path to the designated outdoor girls restroom behind some bushes,the boys would sneak over to peek at us and we didnt really care cause we were young and crazy and would go watch the boys also, so and it always feels so free to pee and poop outside to this day, I love it, so does my sister.

No, Branfart. The cat didn't do it. My car is Grampa blue. Down here in Louisiana children call their grandparents maw-maw and paw-paw. I was just explaining the color blue that is in my car as a color common among the elderly. At least it was a common color in the 60s.

I told my honeyman, yesterday, that I want him to take me canoeing when it get cooler. He asked, what if I have to go to the bathroom. I said, pullover. You can pull over, right. He said yeah, but what if there are snakes. I said, snakes are more afraid of me than I am of them. The snakes will run away. He said, not all of them will run away. Ooooooh, I don't think I could stick my butt over the side of a canoe without tipping us over. Mabe, I am more afraid of the snakes than they would be of me. Not mabe, I know I can't keep up the rowing. I'm going to want to stop ALOT. It probably isn't a good idea. Honeyman knows I want to go out in the wilderness. I really do. I'm not strong enough. I hate to admit it. I wish I were strong to sleep outside and camp and canoe. The truth is that I am not. He knows it and I know it. I hate being weak and sick!!! I hate it!

I would prefer the porta potty. Especially if I need to poop. I like the idea of sitting on a seat, versus the squat, which may or may not be clean. I will pee outside versus a porta potty. I am a shameless shitter, so privacy in that shituation is not an issue.

sp,
I was saddened by your last post.
You don't need to be strong and fit and healthy to enjoy the Great Outdoors!
Enjoy it at your own pace, and under your conditions. Compensate for any personal shortcomings there may be.
Mrs. Mullet and I went away once (with the teenage boys) and she decided she'd like to try canoeing. We just paddled along for an hour or two, no big hurry, but I couldn't seem to get her to understand that if we both paddle on the same side, the damn thing will go around in circles.
The number of times she speared us into the mangrove trees!!!
Ah, but it was fun, and you should never deny yourself fun.
BTW, pooping in the woods is always more relaxed when you have a shotgun with you.

I have just had a very surrealistic dook discovery.... I don't recall ever shitting in a porta-potty, and have not shit in the woods in at least 25 years- I don't even remember what it was like!
I fear I am hopelessly spoiled by modern sanitation.....

Every poop is not to be told to every body.
