I have bought into a ranch in Wyo and plan on going there in the near future and staying for a couple of weeks or so. It is very remote and with out any water, elec, or any other comforts. What do I need to do about dumping my waste tanks. I am planning on taking a gen set with me for elect.

Just had a thought, I have a 5'X 10' utility trailer that I had planed on putting the genset on and a 50gal water tank guess I could get a waste water tank and dump in it and when I go to town about 20 miles away dump it.

Any tips for going that remote?

The flaw in having a black water tank to haul away waste is requiring a pump to transfer up from your 5er's waste outlet. I second the cat-hole idea, just take a blue porta-tank to haul it away from your campsite and waterways. Fresh water may be hauled with one of the collapsible bladder tanks and a 12V transfer pump(harbor freight), saving space when traveling. Then you don't need that 5X10 trailer, everything may be hauled in your truck bed with perhaps a hitch-mount carrier on the rear of the 5er(or mounted over the pin box) for the genset.

Being in the Septic Business a few years back, you could have a small ceptic tank professonally installed for around a grand. Then just park beside it and no worries. For a part time RV'er you could get away with a 55gallon drum and one line running out away from it.

Depending on the type of soil and the amount of beer you drink while doing it, you could have it done by hand in an afternoon of digging with a shovel

How does a "country poorboy" afford a ranch in WY?

Congratulations! Wyoming is beautiful and I am sure you will have some great times on your new ranch!
