I remember catching my youngest son at 5 yrs old doing the "bush watering routine" in view of other camp sites and families and my scaring him when I hollered his name.
He denied doing what he was doing to the extent that he started to shake it off the leaves stating it was dew. Unfortunately it was 100 degrees out side and no rain for about a week.

We never really grow up, we merely learn how to act correctly in public... sometimes some don't do either!

Whoever sent the question to me using the "Thanks" button please click on my name and then send private message. I can't answer your question because it doesn't show who asked it using the "Thanks" button. Thanks.

I have to say.......urine is actually very sterile, unless you have some type of bacterial infection (ewww).


My DHs' friends used to pee in our pool all the time (bigger ewww), I realized this when vast quantites of beer were being drunk, but not one person had gotten out to use the bathroom.
When I gave them all he11 for it, their justifcation, was that the UV/chlorine would kill any germs it might contain.
Finally, they stopped going in the pool but started to 'go' on my bushes around the pool instead =[


So if their are any ladies reading this........it is like the saying goes, 'you can dress them up, but you can't take them out'.

What a bunch of boneheads!

WOW, now some of you are going to complain about peeing outside? Hopefully the WILDLIFE gets the memo!

If a bear takes a leak in the forest and no ones around does it still sound like trickling water?

Hate to correct you f1100turbo, but a bear doesn't take a leak, he leaves a leak.

Wait a minute, we are waaayyy off the subject!


And the bear leaves it anywhere he wants to!

Bears pee in the woods... maybe I am just marking my territory to keep the bears away!

Dairies and feed lots routinely scoop the waste from the cows, load it into a spreader and fling it into the field where they will soon plant crops, such as wheat, potatoes, corn, beans, sugar beets, and many more human consumed food.

Maybe it's all part of the circle of life

I seem to see way more dog owners leaving behind their dog stuff than campers leaving behind gray water. While it would be impossible to ignore dog crap in the bushes around a campsite (if they've even moved it to the bushes) I can guarantee nobody would ever know I put the fire with the slightly soapy, slightly gray water from my sink bucket. (no food scraps in other words). The same would probably be true with pure shower water. I'm not talking about cooking grease or food scraps personally, although I realize some people's gray water is more black than others.

The difference with the wild life is that bears and coyotes aren't doing their business right next to my camper. They are off in the distance, away from human activity.
As a dog owner, I am consistently disappointed by other dog owners who do not clean up after their dog. My dog poops, I clean it up. I expect the same from other dog owners. Domesticated canines will generally do their business in areas humans occupy. That leads to people encountering the scat and often stepping on it and tracking it around.
As I stated in a previous post, it won't hurt the planet. It's just disgusting. Same for peeing in the bushes. Same for dog poo. Same for gray water.

"Back in the day" you could open the gray tank valve part-way on your way home and the moisture would help keep the dust down on the roads on busy weekends.
