Pee Jugs?

Talk about your camp or project's LNT plans (and MOOP problems) here. Ask questions or share ideas on what works and what doesn't.

Yeah, I think I would just as soon stumble to the JOTS as fumble with a jug and then empty it etc.

Having emptied uncounted thousands of urinal jugs over the past 30+ years, I am grateful to be able to manage without one, frankly.

But, knowing that I don't know what I don't know, I will bring a jug and hope I never need it. 8)


Which reminds me of my decompression camping trip last year.

I got to the camp site late, didn't have dinner then drank Sailor Jerry's later into the night, which resulted in a 2:30AM frantic stumble to the outhouse in which I tripped over the parking pillars, and still managed to hold my bladder as I tumbled down a moderate grade. I credit years of training from the Playa.

Pee jug would have been good then.


Yup I hear that!!! Strong work there, though!

I tend to plan ahead real good for my moments of impaired judgement, but for some reason, when push comes to shove... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Good judgment is a fine thing. Any twist top jug, including those .5 quart crystal springs bottles, will do the job. The trick is to get it all into the container.
THANKYOUZOE!

The best public service for getting piss into a jug is from Pee Funnel Camp. It not only helps those with internal plumbing, but those gents with hardware on their junk.

FWIW,

I found a product called TravelJohns that are great for the Entrance and Exodus, when you don't want to/can't run to a porta potty and you don't want pee swishing around your car for 5 hours in a jug.

They are a one-time-use bag with a curved spout, once the pee hits it a gel inside super-expands, turns solid, and masks any smell. Before use they are rolled up into the size of a salt shaker so you can keep one in your glovebox for non-playa anytime use too!

My first burn I entered by myself and had to use the traveljohn when the line was rolling and not stopped, one arm steering, one arm holding the bag, one foot bracing my half-stand, one foot gas/brake. I'm a girl and didn't spill a drop with these suckers!

You can get em at Pep Boys or sporting goods stores. traveljohn.com

p-jug

Postby tatonka » Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:14 pm

every night I got to get up and pee . Leaving my warm room and going into the cold bathroom was a pain. Well since I am going to use a p-jug out there on the playa , I started practiseing useing it.
Really helps falling back alseep when ya dont have to move around much. Found it to be smelly tho , so I would put rinse water in jug and some vinegar and no smell :)

Moving this over to the general Q&A board since that's a better fit.

In response to the thread, you could also just not be lazy and get up and go to the porta-potty. I get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night most of the time too, it's not really that big a deal.

I used a gallon jug after I emptied it but made sure to decorate it all over so that I would know it wasn't for drinking. I also made sure to put it out of arms reach from the bed and always had 1-2 with water close to the bed. No issues all week.

I've merged all the p-jugs into one place. :)

I don't think using a jug is necessarily about laziness. Some of us (me, anyway) sleep wretchedly lightly, and a brisk walk in cold air makes it difficult to go back to sleep. I can't nap during the day, even in an air-conditioned space.

I've had an older boat for years. Instead of using the plumbing on board, we've always used one of these. The last two times we've been to the burn we set up a small dome tent with this inside to create our own private potty space.

Lady people...go with a plastic coffee can. The nice wide opening is very forgiving. My issue is this: I was a happy pee jug user when I was a tent dweller. Last year was my first year with my new to me but old motorhomegirl. She doesn't have useable plumbing due to cracked grey and black water tanks. I share my RV with a male friend. Even though he's a good friend and mellow as can be, I can't bring myself to pee in a jug when he is sleeping right next to me in very close quarters. So last year I found myself doing a 4-5 am jot run every morning. Even though it's a short walk to my village jots, it's so disruptive to the little sleep I get. I need to muster the courage to get over my pee problem or find a workable solution. (First World Problem)

I may have an answer for you. Go to a medical supply store and buy some condom catheters. It's a condom with a length of small tubing attached to it (and NO it doesn't need insertion in case you're wondering). That way you can pee in your bottle without making a wee (no pun intended) hours of the morning run to the jots. :D 8)

An automotive funnel with an oval mouth (about $3) will also help bridge the gap, so will a Freshette, for $20 more. You'll need to practice a few times in the real world. And please note, eplaya user MyDearFriend will get pissed (pun not intended; but happily left in) if ladies pee standing up all the time, because done constantly it could weaken your muscles. For a week a year, I risk it a few times a day and I ain't sorry; your mileage may vary. :)

I cannot recommend the "Go Girl" funnel. Too squishy; seals poorly. I believe AntiM found it similarly disappointing.
