I was wondering if anyone had commented here anytime recent (shows 3 yrs ago as the "beginning" LOL) finally made it back to a more current post
I've never really had an issue with peeing outside, as a kid or as an adult, I've always tried for a little privacy when i've had to do it. The only issue or concern i had, was if i had to poop. If my 15 yr old read this forum he'd probably give me a "See, I was fertilizing the yard with what i used to do" sort of look. LOL Of course if i would have found this blog 11 yrs ago, we would have been right on track.
I taught all 3 of my boys to "water" grandpa's tree when they were old enough to hold their hoses, grandpa (my dad) has a "spot" out by his shop that he pee's at (we all pee at) when we're out & can't wait or don't want to go clear into the house to do the deed. As a kid/teen, I used it frequently....height of laziness some would say. But that's how they all got potty trained, by going outside to water the weeds or the trees & then we worked on 'aiming' inside using the toilet. My daughter......try as i might, she adamantly hates to pee outside in anything other than the outhouse (if we're out on an adventure), she'd rather burst a bladder than to pee out in the wilderness. I've tried since she was a little bitty thing too. One time we went out on an adventure & we both really had to go, but the forest toilet's were too far away to walk to & i wasn't going to try to get back to the truck squeeze my bladder into a seat to go to a stinky outhouse. So i told her to suck it up & let's do it over there off the bank by a tree. Of course........her brothers thought we found something great & had to come investigate. I told them unless they wanted to see their mom's big bare butt, they best relocate themselves. So for my daughter she's totally in need of privacy & less of an obvious "splash" area than i am. As long as the wind doesn't come up the wrong direction & make things splash on my pants (which has happened
) I'm good. I seemed to have had a bigger problem when i was doing long haul trucking with my x-husband & had to go, the only "hidey hole" i had was the tires & they weren't very supportive if you were using the rim to lean against or hide in LOL That was the first time I had an issue with privacy LOL I didn't want to have a cop pull over behind us (especially while i was in the midst of my work) to question what we were doing & why were we doing it LOL At night wasn't too bad, except when it was windy & cold....not good times then LOL
I might have to see if i can get one of those "shewee" things (i hate the name) for my daughter to see if it'd help her any. Could have used one of those when i was over the road LOL we only had the bottle or the hose & the hose wasn't exactly created for women to be using
