    Wierdly enough, wear a fleece poncho. Find a spot, take a knee, pee, stand back up. No showing anything, just watch yer aim. If its dark people won’t even see you do that. (They’re probably night blind from their phones anyway.)

    I carry these:

    Mostly for the kid that has to pee as soon as we hit the road...even though I asked him before leaving.

    Sanitary, no worries about leaks. I keep some in my day bag too.

    I remember that exchange from childhood well. And how I disliked mom telling me, "Well go try anyway." I did, and she was always right. RIP mom.

    I pee so often at night now that I don't use a bottle - just a 2 inch hose to the outside...Ha

    3 times Past Master... but that's another matter. Turn off your headlamp... it helps.

    I piss in the canteen then wash it out the next day and use it. So anyone wanting to use my canteen around camp now has something to consider.

    I'm really impressed that we can sustain a discussion about peeing in a bottle for three pages!:4:

    I personally use a bottle in the night and have been using this method for years when camping. It is mighty handy especially at the cabin since I'm on a top bunk and the outhouse is a bit of a hike. lol. Thrift stores here in Alaska quite often have nalgene type bottles that work very well for this. The polycarbonate construction is extremely rugged and they seal well. I do not however store the bottle with me in my sleep arrangements. I do not feel like the heat does anything for a person. It just came out of your body so the temperature is the same as your body at the moment it comes out. From that point on, it continues to get colder thus being a heat sink. It can not add heat to your body since it is the same heat as your body.

    I use a ex-laundry soap 2 litre bottle to take care of business when sleeping in my hammock. No boasting but I need the wide mouth and volume. I will get cramps at night if not adequately hydrated before turning in and accept the inevitable 02:00 wake up nudge from a full bladder. I feel no need to cuddle the bottle after use and just drop it on the ground until morning get up. After 19, kids, grandkids, and GGkids, a bit of pee does not worry me.

    Since I left the ground for the trees several years ago, this is no longer an issue, but, when I was a ground dweller, a gatorade bottle was used. Dont have to open the door, no skeeters coming in.

    I’ve even used the technique at home to avoid the walk to the bathroom. After all, chamber pots have been used in some form for centuries. Nothing really new.
