Has anyone here got plans or information for the Skycrapper composting toilet, designed by Doug Elley, in the 70s or 80s, I believe? I came across a mention of it in a book I've been reading (River Horse, by William Least-Heat Moon - highly recommended!), and there seems to be a book available on Amazon but (a) it's quite expensive, and (b) I'd rather not support Amazon if I can help it. It occurred to me that someone here might know more about it.

You seem to be on the internet at a late local time.

I suspect your local time and mine are very different. I'm in the USA, not sure where you are.
