    It would have to be pretty cold for me not to want to get up to pee. But once I get that urge, if I don't go, it'll drive me mad. I won't be able to sleep and it'll be all I can think about. Very annoying.

    I'm beginning to think a diaper is the most effective solution here.

    Why bother? Cut out the middle man and introduce him directly to R. Kelly.

    That guys gotta be 40% piss by now.

    At "The Original Place" was an old travel trailer parked on our land...
    Had a deck by the door....
    Being there alone a lot of times....would just get up and go out to the end of the deck...and let her rip.
    All sorts of weather....and you would be surprised that you really did get cold till you were done....then going back in was a great.

    Out there one morning doing my duty....cold and frosty, full moon, so was real bright.....

    Was about half done looked up by the gate...saw a "shape"...then the "shape" snorted...was a big buck...but the steam was blowing out and up....
    Startled/scared the heck out of me....

    From that day forward....used a pee bottle.

    Was interesting to know that the grass always used be real green around the deck...don't know why?.

    I use a wide mouth Nalgene that is marked to avoid confusion. I have tried Gatorade bottles before and they are just too prone to accidents, they are not that wide at the opening.

    I tried one of those a few years ago for wearing to a movie the theater and riding my motorcycle.

    The one problem is that it's almost necessary to stand while using it. Also, the rubber sleeve was incredibly tight, cutting off circulation to the 'junk', if you know what I mean. To put it on, it was all but necessary to have an erection, which necessitates a trip to the local women's business college or the public pool... which will also get you arrested, pretty much EVERY time!

    I suggest a Vicky's Secret catalog.

    Good suggestion! Gatorade bottles are too small to fit in and trying to aim in the dark is no fun. As one who is on 5 different diuretics 'going' during the night is something that affects me often as in nightly and then there's the danged volume. I use the large OJ bottle or a few of those hospital urinals.

    And no, don't see no reason to sleep with the bottle after. While we all have our quirks and kinks that's just weird.

    this is also what I use winter camping- I'm definitely not going to be rolling out of warm sleeping bag, putting boots (and a coat?) on, unzipping the tent, stumbling around in the cold, get back in the tent, zipping it back up, taking boots off and getting back in my bag

    instead-break the widemouth out, roll on your side, wizz, secure cap- done

    in a snow cave/trench or floorless shelter you don't even need a bottle :)

    32 oz nalgene with a bio hazard sticker so everyone knows!
    Also holding your pee will make you colder. Better to empty out you will stay warmer.

    I was stationed in Alaska white in the Army. iv been in the field with temps exceeding - 50 below. I get up to pee. When I can no longer do that, I’ll quit camping.

    I learned long ago ,
    1. don't drink a lot at night, do most of my hydrating during the day.
    2.take care of business just before going to bed whether i feel the need to or not.
    3. urination is done around the tent/sleeping area. in theory repels snakes .

    Thanks guys! All this information is very useful!

    I need to build up the courage to go out there by myself. Haha. I'm not afraid of the dark or anything like that, but with my experience, and no dog, I'd probably have a bit of a hard time relaxing to really enjoy it. Especially if it's really cold. I usually go with my uncle, but he's all "I've gone winter camping before, it's not fun. Why don't you just camp out on the deck?" The backyard just isn't the same thing.. When I do, I can figure out what's best for me to pee in!

    I just don't know why you're scared of loosing heat. You'll get it back when you get in the bag again. Just get up and pee. No reason to risk pissing the bag and ruining it. Plus going to bed with a full bladder in the winter makes you colder.

    Not scared of losing heat really. I would much rather be cold all night than be wet of pee all night. I has started this thread because I was curious how everyone did it and how they managed to keep clean. Part of me thought there were various sophisticated methods that I was not aware of, but in the end it was all about personal preference. I enjoyed the discussion. Personally, I think I'll get up and TCB. I'll walk past the fire and stoke it while I'm at it.

    But if you are referencing my previous post about lacking courage to "go out there by myself", that isn't just about losing heat. Haha. I was talking about camping alone during the winter in general. Still a bit of a newbie.

    I wish I had thought about these as a teen. There was one winter I watched said urine start to freeze on the ground. That night staying in the shelter would have been preferable.

    I have no problem peeing in a bottle and it does not even have to be winter, i was working a couple months ago in the high Sierras and we had a storm that rolled through punishing us with high winds and rain, did not second guess the bottle over getting my sleeping gear soaked in rain. Technique comes with practice, never have I had a spill. The worst scenario happens when one's bladder is bigger than the piss bottle, better hope your pubococcygeus muscle are in shape.

    Very interesting input. In a rainy situation, a pee bottle would definitely be preferable.

    Regardless of my preference, I should definitely get some practice with this skill. I may not use it during the winter, but if it starts to pour and I don't have a tarp situation well enough to get up and pee, I'm definitely busting out the bottle.

    Folgers new plastic jar has a less then water proof lid dag nab it .
    I use an old Nalgene bottle now .
    I always hammock camp in the winter so you just skooch up toward the tree in a semi sitting position and use the wide mouth . If you are a dribbler NYou might want to linger a moment before removing .
    I camped with a guy who used his regular drinking bottle when I asked him if he threw it away “ nah I just rinse it out and use it for a water bottle it’s my urine after all “ He was originally from Texas and was an ex Marine so
    You know .
    I usually dump it in a hole in the snow since I use it multiple times in the night . It will freeze in your bottle otherwise .

    Apparently none of you fellas have been standing in front of a urinal and pissed on both of your shoes.
