Finally, someone has answered the bladder-obssessed backpacker´s prayer. It´s a product called Restop 1: Disposable Travel Toilet. The following is no joke. It really exists! (I don´t work for the manufacturers of this, by the way, I just thought this was funny when I read about it).

Here´s an excerpt from a Chicago Tribune column about Restop 1:

"Restop 1, manufactured by American Innotek of Escondido, Calif., is, in the absence of adequate facilities, meant to help you more gracefully answer one of nature´s most annoying calls— provided you can do so in 18 fluid ounces or less. If your aim is true, this solid blue bag´s built-in funnel will direct the flow to biodegradable crystals that absorb and deoderize. The thing closes with a zipper-like seal, and that´s that. It´s safe to toss it in the nearest trash bin. …. The company also makes Restop 2. You can probably figure out what that one´s for."

The newspaper lists the website contact: www.whennaturecalls.com.

Has anyone ever used this thing?

And why not just use a tree while you´re at it?
