Waste Management & Hygiene In Survival Mode
No matter where we go, we have to "Go". And we need to know the right information about disposing of body wastes properly. In the wilderness setting we need to be conscience of our surroundings and be respectful of Mother Nature and make sure we don't leave something damaging or unpleasant behind.
The Travel John Disposable Urinal is a handy item to include in a bug out kit. It is a small kit and it can be used by women and men alike. The uit has a chemical that gets up with addition of liquid so it will not spill out once it is used. The individual packages are palm sized and will fit easily into emergency kits
Latrines And Toilets In A Wilderness Camp
Every latrine starts with digging a hole that's deep enough to use for several days. The set up is easy. Once you have a deep enough hole dug you may outfit it with the convenient seat placed carefully over the waste area.
Be careful you don't dig the latrine hole too wide or you will end up in a scary mess!
Be sure to save the dirt from the digging off to the side as you will need to fill the hole back in after about a week of use.
