Fecal shower

I've been camping for over fifty years. The first 18 with my parents and the rest with Missy for the last 37 years. In my early years, on a horribly cold day in Ohio I took a fecal shower. Take a look at our blog and read the rest of the story. It will make you laugh as well as make you thankful it wasn't you.

That is a "stinky" story.

I can only hope and pray it never happens to me.

When squated down in front of the sewer bay I have wondered about those dreaded results of a screw up. I'll remember you when I'm about to pull the HANDLE.

one suggestion

Here is a suggestion for you folks that may camp in cold weather and dont want an experience like the one described above ....
One. Go to camping world and look thru the 'section where the poop hoses are'...
Two. Look for a clear plastic thingie that you are suppose to put on your black water discharge pipe. It will have a WASH OUT thingie on it where you are suppose to hook up a water hose so you can BACKWASH your black water tank. It is clear plastic so you can tell when your ''stuff'' comes clean.
Three... As I remember the hose connection has a little biddie cut off valve on it so you can cut the water off as necessary. ........
A. Hook up your stinkie slinkie to the ground and to the clear thingie you just bought.
B. Open your black water valve and ''discover that your ''stinkie'' is frozen.... ''oH NOOOOOOOOO'' ''WHAT SHALL I DO?''
C. Hook up a hose, NOT YOUR FRESH WATER HOSE YOU FILL YOUR FRESH WATER TANK WITH, and turn on the water. As long as the water is not frozen it will absorb the lower temp in your frozen ''stinkie''.......
D. Eventually the ''warm water (?)'' will thaw out your ''stinkie'' and gravity will take over and ''WHOOSH'' you got a empty black water tank.
E. Leave the hose connected and wash out your black water tank. You will know when it is ''clean'' by watching the discharge water coming thur the clear plastic fitting.
F. Close the valves ,,,,,,, roll up the hose,,,,, Thank Seajay for his wonderful idea and remember that you owe him ten cents and you must pay him the next time you see him ....
This is Navy ingenuity,,,,,,, A Marine would have just thrown a grenade at the problem...............lol............ ''Ping''....... Your turn Wayne...

Remember our troops in your prayers ........

Seajay. I probably would have laughed at the advice, believed you were yanking a young man's chain, and still taken a fecal shower. At least if you had been around you could have gotten the last laugh though.
