Would a funnel help.

"(drinking from a bottle where my urin just spend 6 hours inside is really not for me)"

It wouldn't be for me either...if I were using a plastic bottle. Unlike stainless, plastic has a way of retaining flavors and odors. Urine flavored and scented water. Meh....no thanks.

Sawyer's got the answer! At least for us guys.

I'm going to get one of their New! Revolutionary! Fast-Fill adapters. I'm going to have it surgically implanted in my johnson. If I have to pee in the middle of the night, no problem! I just remove the 'head,' attach the plastic tubing I've preset that runs out of the shelter, do my business, then remove the hose and reattach my normal bits.

What could be easier!?! Sawyer thought they were revolutionizing hydration, but they're actually revolutionizing the midnight pee break!

And if you're interested doug I can get you a couple. Just insert the tubing, attach to the sawyer, and there you go!! You can leave those things in for weeks at a time (but watch for infection!)...a real hydration "bladder" that you can use while hiking...no need to ever stop!


Now THAT'S UL!!!!

I hear the insertion process is rather painful and if you do it wrong and miss channels you get to know pain very, very intimately for quite some time (and probably miss out on any kids if that is in general still an option). No surgery required though. All necessary holes are there. If you want new holes you can pierce directly into the bladder through the stomach. Not something I would want but YMMV :)

No no, Jennifer, not a catheter. You must not have seen the video of the new Sawyer fast-fill adapters.

bit of drift:

Was that the 'revolutionary' system they introduced?

...sorta like what I was doing last year with my Frontier Pro and Platy?



Doug maybe you could get a 'hydration port' installed in your sleeping bag. At the appropriate height, of course.

How about dont drink anything after 5 pm, and pee immediately before go to bed?

Depends on the size of ones prostate I guess.

Keeping well hydrated will help keep you warmer at night. It does have the drawback of possibly having to pee during the night though.

"How about dont drink anything after 5 pm, and pee immediately before go to bed?"

Still makes me want to pee in the morning. And until I've crawled out of the sleeping bag in winter, put on more clothes and those darn ski boots, opened the tent, crawled out of that, ran to a tree, undid all the clothes again ... it's too late. Yes, been there, done that. Wasn't pretty and I'm not proud of it.

Get outta bed and go. Unless it is pouring, I would be outside.

But I dare you to stand under a full moon with frost on the brush all around and NOT look over your shoulder during the process. So, so ..... vulnerable. I rarely if ever need to answer nature's call during the night, at home or otherwise.

I get out of my bag and kneel at the door and pee in to a bottle in the porch.

I tried a platy. No fun. Gotta concentrate way too hard.

Kneeling in a tent, on a pad, pants down, et al makes it too hard.
