Camping: Portable Shower and Toilet

We have been doing some camping this summer, and the question came up about showers and toilets. First off, you need some privacy. There’s a number of tents on the market designed for this purpose. One of the units we used was the Texsport Hilo Hut Privacy Shelter. This tent is high enough to stand up in for a shower, and wide enough for a porta potty. For shower options, there’s the solar method (put the Zodi pump in a black 5 gallon pail), the propane method, and the campfire coil method. One can use a handheld sprayer, or the shower pole. We used a Luggable Loo as our portable toilet, which is a 5 gallon pail with snap on toilet seat and lid, but any camping potty would work. Use a biological breakdown enhancer, not a chemical deodorant.
