As usual, lots of good information and fun commentary. Thanks.

We do a lot of river trips and waste management there has much in common with the same issue in SMB camping. Typically for us it comes down to some form of Wag Bag system, I'm not really brand loyal but I have found the best deals in bulk (a dozen or more) of the military surplus type. If you're with a crowd each bag can typically hold 5 uses. (YMMV) When we were younger we just spread it on the ground and squatted but now we carry one of two seat systems in our Trasharoo.

The first one folds up a little smaller:


But the toilet seat, when combined with a gamma seal lid on a 5 gallon bucket, can double as both the throne and secure storage of the sealed Wag Bags:


As an aside, for those who hate to make the trek outside to pee in the middle of the night, a wide mouth water bottle makes an excellent pee bottle. I've dedicated an old one for that purpose, yellow color for obvious reasons. My wife prefers containers that the mixed nuts come in at Costco or Sams. They have a very wide opening that works for her.

When I sailed aboard cruise ships, meal time talk around the dinner table among the engineers very often turned to discussions of the MSD system (marine sanitation device's). It might not come up all day in the normal course of conversation, but put us all together at dinner....

Here's something we've used when the weather is bad or cold outside and don't want to go outside for Number 1. I think someone on this forum recommended these TravelJohns to me years ago. They have the absorbent material in them to minimize any chance of leaking.

My brother used one of these on a Grand Canyon trip. Because it makes a loud and very odd sound when you expand it, everyone on the trip knew his business.

Our porta-potty is made by Reliance but essentially is just a fancy seat over a 5 gal bucket. For liners we use trash compactor bags because they’re thicker than regular garbage liners. Cheap enough you can double line them. We also throw some cat litter in beforehand for odor control.
