Yes OldCoot, we understand that you are blessed with full hook-ups. I think it's obvious we are not talking about that.

Yes you did.

If it's swimming in someone else's mess then I'll simply go elsewhere, there's many places to dump if you seek them out. But in general most folks don't lose more than a drop or two then they rinse it away, or I'll rinse it away for them. A germ of wisdom will go a long way towards keeping yourself safe without going overboard, no pun intended.

I'm convinced that germophobia is why folks are getting sicker, easier, and more often. Our immune systems aren't used to being worked at all anymore what with all the germ free going on. When I got chicken pox 30 years ago a friend of my mom brought her son over to play so he could catch it and get it over with. Now that would be considered child abuse.

Am I saying jump in barehanded and fingerpaint with it? No. Am I going to don all sorts of PPE (Personal protection equipment) before even approaching the scene bleach bottle in hand? No.

Do what works for you and let nobody judge you, either way you do it.

SKnight, was just gonna say pretty close to what you said. I go about and wash my hands when needed, haven't been sick in 10 yrs, wife has wipes, disinfectant stuff and what not. She gets sick 3 to 4 times a year. Hope I didn't just jinx myself. Lol as far as trekking stuff around I will say I wear gloves and an old pair of dead sneakers that I only wear at the dump.

kids think tt stands for tan turd.

There is the slight possibility that he derives his power from a small on-board nuclear reactor. Very innovative!

Never had a problem when we weren't blessed with full hook ups which has only been the last 8 years of the last 53+. If the dump station had debris around it, we hosed it down before dumping. A pair of gloves is about all you need.

For what it's worth, I am always suspect of the general area around the sewer hookup at a full connection site as well. Mistakes happen there too. I make sure to spray my soles with a little Clorox cleaner immediately.

Ironically, I followed my best process successfully the other day, no issues and then turned around and stepped in fresh goose poo along a nearby creek.

One more reason I go nearly all summer (and most of spring and fall) in sandals. They wash up really easily.

Time for someone to design and build a remote controlled dump system!

Have you used Clorox Anywhere? It does not stain clothes or carpets like bleach.
