Aloha Friday: Outhouse



My Question:

Have you ever used an outhouse/outdoor toilet? ( I'm not talking about the porta potty that they put out in certain public places)

*******************
I grew up using them before we had indoor flush and still most times you better had your bucket of water to flush!
The outhouse/toilet is still being used in 2010 on 365 Project

  4. I've used the porta-potty ones they have at the fairs but never an actual outhouse. But I guess if nature calls you have no choice. :-)

  5. I've used the porta-potty ones and when I was in Girl Scouts I used the outhouses. They nicknamed them BIFFY's - Bathroom In Forrest For You. Either way I would rather just pop a squat the good old fashioned way - as long as no one was watching!

  10. When I was a kid, and didn't know better I think, at camp. They had those wooden outhouses with the disgusting beyond belief wooded toilet holes.

    Have a great Friday!

  12. But of course, not an experience I treasure, but one I have had on several occasions.

  13. Oh yes, and I really do not like them. I the military we had to dig our own, than cover it up when done. In girl scouts we had outhouses. I really hated using them.

  20. Camping and such is something you kind of have to use it for. I'm a small town girl and know how to pop a squat. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. IF I have to...
    Otherwise I'll hold it. Lately they have been so clean and don't really smell as bad as they used to. with even a sink to wash your hands on the inside

  22. Many people thought it was a big joke when I used to speak about my experiences. Used them for the first 9 years of my life.

    I try not to use them now, but have a few times at outdoor events.

    Also, visiting from SITS, love the blog, feel I could just walk into the beautiful header you have here. Great stuff.

  23. Stopped by from SITS to see answer your unusual question. I remember as a kid when we took a trip for camping at the cabin it meant doing our business in the outhouse. As a child I was terrified to go in by myself. What might be lurking in the dark place? Spiders, rats, monsters, I don't know.

    As an adult we have a friend who we visit quite often who still has an outhouse. I'm not nearly so worried as I was when I was a child, but now I take my dog with me when I have to "go" there. Just in case there's a rabbid racoon or rat nearby. Mostly just for my mental state. It makes me feel better somehow knowing I can call the dog to "get em"

    ReplyDelete
  24. Nope, I have never used one. There have always been outhouses or nature wherever I went lol
