Would you dump your gray water tank on your from lawn? Every time you go camping go home and dump your gray tank in your yard. I bet before long you will not be able to stand the smell.

I have several times if the line to the dump station is long when we leave the CG. I really have never noticed a smell. What little food is left is gone the next day. I guess little critters eat it up.

All the hype from the government and the soap manufacturers has made us a nation of germophobes!

Are parents, grandparents, great grandparents, etc. all seamed to manage to survive without all the antibacterial soaps ans hand sanitizers.

Rick, you talking about those good old days? Those days when most people died before the hit 60? Those days where they did not understand where most diseases came from? Back when they cut limbs off because of what would be minor infections today? Yeap, those good old days...

All of this germ talk has turned this tread from the practice of literally dumping on your neighbor to what the effects are of that is. As a global expantion happened is where all the awareness came of germs and infections. This opened the market to be ripe with the fear of diseases. People in the "good old days" didnt get as sick as we do now because the lack of mobility and when people did travel there was the acute bout of sickness because of the local bacteria in the area. if there is dout in that, any one who brews their own beer or wine will tell you that local water and bacteria effects everything. IMHO that is why i dont want to step in my own waste water gray or black or any combanation there of and should not have to be subject to the practice. I travel a sales route of about 400 miles and contact many people who contact many people that is the spreader of the flu and common cold that get passed on. i apoligized for the tone in this but the talk that it is just soapy water does effect the quaitiy of more than just a small TT sight. Sorry for the soap box pulpit talk.
