Staying Clean, and Sanitary with No Water

 As with the larger things - don't forget to plan now. It is the small comfort items that keep people happier when many other things fail.

Okay so not only the power goes out, but the water stops. Don't let that stop you from enjoying an old fashioned toilet experience. As a hunter, camper, and outdoors-man It's never really fun to crap in the woods - or outside in the cold air.  The answer is really simple - plan now for bad times later.

We have a Natures Head (  ) composting toilet in our RV; it never needs water, it is completely odor free, and works for months before you have to unload the composted's fantastic. But it's not for everybody and the cost, at nearly $1,000 - is not for everyone either. 

Another alternative - although not an elegant long-term fix is the old 5 gallon bucket with a plastic bag. A tip - have plenty of bags. long as we're on the subject of water loss - we still need to keep our bodies clean and relatively odor "less". What we've found works great in the woods - also works great in a house with no water....towlettes...

The larger ones can give you a field shower and keep you smelling (not too bad)...

don't forget to wash your hair while your at it:
