Porta Potty Party

The time has come to pack your costumes, prep your liver and stock up on sani-wipes because you are ready to Fest. Festival season is the most exciting of all and quite frankly it lasts for a whole. There are all sorts of music and arts festivals all around the world but they have one thing in common: you must do your biznas is a porta potty. I was recently at The Governors Ball in NYC and was inspired to share my tips. So, here are some tricks I have picked up over my festing years:

  • Always carry extra toilet paper/hand sanitizer or sani-wipes with you.
  • Scout out all of the porta potty locations and select the ones furthest away from the crowds.
  • Always go to the last ones in the last row (they are used the least).
  • Hover and squat. If you need to sit, do it but don’t tell anyone.
  • Pick ones that are in the shades.
  • If you are camping and some are near by, try making boys and girls signs ad sticking them on the door (this semi-works).
  • Have a buddy come with you and watch the door.
  • If its dark out, bring a flashlight so you don’t get any surprises.
  • Never, I mean NEVER go into a portapotty that’s on a slant.
  • If you are okay with the wilderness, pop a squat in the bush and avoid the poop box all together.
  • If you see someone “gross” coming out of one, DO NOT go in!

Summer is here and I’m learning to bike (better), fish and other Pemberton activities. Follow me on my journey. Check back every Wednesday (ish) to see what I have been up to.
