So you know how sometimes you go on long road trips? Say for a shopping trip or maybe to see a NASCAR race or perhaps a cross-country camping trip? Hubby and I have done quite a number of these types of road trips in our 8 years together. Just to name a few, there were 2 trips to Bar Habor, a 7-8 hour drive, and a trip to New Hampshire to see the NASCAR Loudon race, another 7 hour drive. We love road trips. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of the road in front of you and the adventure sure to follow. The sights to see. The fun to experience.
Well…all except for the potential bathroom nightmares.
There’s nothing worse than heading out on a long road trip and being between gas station exits when nature calls in a hurry. I had one such incident when a bagel did not seem to agree with me. Luckily we were able to get to a dingy old gas/pizza parlor in time. As I rushed in, I noted that the bathroom was right next to the pizza counter (ugh…heart dropping but no choice…) and hadn’t seen a “real” cleaning in quite some time. Unfortunately for me, beggars can’t be choosers and I was out of options and time.
And even more unfortunate…for the gas/pizza attendant…the flush decided at this most inopportune time to….break. I pity to the guy who had to come unclog that flush. If he’s reading, I am so sorry! Let me tell you, I came flying out of that little store at MOC 22 screaming START THE CAR!!! Kind of like this…
Embarrassing and humiliating but what else can a gal do when nature calls? Or as in my case, nature SCREAMS!
Or what about those times when you can’t wait for the next exit because you gotta go NOW. I know firsthand the joy of having other drivers watch as I made a mad dash, legs semi crossed careening half crazed into the woods, roll of toilet paper or a few napkins in hand. Not cool!
That’s right, now I can take my flush with me where ever I go. All I have to do is pull into a secluded spot, plug the bumper dumper into my trailer hitch, and let er’ fly. And for those more “open” areas, I can just fire up the privacy screen and let my feet dangle while enjoying the comforts of home on the road.
Best yet, I have the choice between a sealable bucket or bag. Gotta luv options!
For only $69.99 (plus shipping) you to can have this level of creature comfort for your road trips. Just visit the website to order yours.
Oh…and don’t forget to order the optional toilet paper holder for added convenience and comfort; it’s only $9.99.
