This reminds me of a story I heard once. Seems that the south at the turn of the century. (The 20th Century not the 21st) wasn't doing so well. There was a lot of reasons for this but one man sent a team down there to investigate. They came back and said they thought all the people on the south were anemic. So a group of doctors went there and discovered that they all had hook worm. They asked people where they defecated and they said stuff like "over by that tree over there". They asked the next guy and he said by the same tree but, he says "not in the exact same place". So they did a test on hook worms and found that they could crawl 6 feet in a few days but, then they died. So, they started a campaign to get everybody to dig outhouses and make the hole at least 6 feet deep.

Fast forward ahead a 100 years and there was a man who had bad allergies . Nothing the doctors could do could help him. He did his own research and discovered that in the developing world almost no one has allergies. He was convinced that this was because they have hook worm. Since the doctors would not give him hook worm he went to the developing world and walked around bare foot in the places where people defecated until he got hook worm. And his allergies went away.

He now has a web site set up where you can buy hook worms from him. I mean really from him, right out of him. Seem almost no one wants to do this though. lol

The story was something about co-dependency's of different spices in animals and how maybe we have gotten rid of too many in our lives and have made ourselves sicker as a result.

If any one is interested I may be able to find the story with a little research.

I was taught not to pee on my hands. In the event the wind is blowing the wrong way....you may very well choose to wash your hands! Just like if the toilet paper gets soggy!

True and disturbing at the same time

Thanks Caveman CBB

The hookworm story is a facinating read. Makes you wonder about what we are doing to ourselves with all the germ a fob stories and how we should be protecting ourselves from nature.

Here is a pod cast version of the program I heard about parasites . You can listen to it on your computer or what ever device you use to get to this forum. It's a good show I try to tune in whenever I can.

No gloves - But I wash up afterwards and use alcohol disinfectant.

When setting up I do electric, then fresh water (I put a splitter on the water spigot), and sewer last. I have soap in the hose bay to clean up before touching anything else.

When breaking down, I do electric first, fresh water hookup 'to fill' next, sewer, and fresh water hose last. I dump the black first, about half the grey - while using the wash out on the black. I re dump the black, then the grey again. I rinse the stinky slinky off incase anything dripped while hooked up. I disconnect from trailer keeping the hose end high, RINSE thoroughly inside and out, and disconnect from sewer dump. Put the S.S. in its bumper pipe holder and close it. Rinse it, and the connectors which then get sealed in a bag and put away, and then wash hands. Then I turn off water and disconnect hose and store it in Fresh water compartment.

May be yucky to some, but I haven't got sick yet. I DO NOT put the sewer hose or connectors on anything but the ground or on a Stinky Slinky bridge. I keep fresh water connectors and hoses separated away from the sewage hose and connectors. Bleach cleaner sprayed on connectors and leave it to dry on them between trips.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

A box of surgical gloves... either from the drugstore or cheaper on line comes in handy. I keep a box in the wet bay for use when connecting and disconnecting and ringing the sewer hose. one use, into the trash and move on. I use a disinfectant afterwards and then wash when the next opportunity arises.

I bought the box of gloves, used them once. Pita to use. I keep a container of Lysol wipes the wet bay and wipe my hands before touch the bay door. Fresh water hoses go in a different bay. And I started spraying the hose bib with bleach after I watched a guy across from me rinse out his black hose by holding it up to the bib. I guess he felt it was pretty clean when he did this as the other end was just lying on the grass, not hooked to the sewer. There are some scary people in this world.

Not scary, just stupid. And as Ron White says "You can't fix stupid".

Ah, I see. A round here we call that A faucet. Ya it would be bad to stick that right in the end of your black hose. I gotta agree with that one.
