My kingdom for a toilet!

August 12th, 2010 at 01:12 pm

I was perusing

Text is vandwellers.org and Link is http://vandwellers.org/
vandwellers.org earlier. The website has a gaudy color scheme that makes it hard to read, but I have to tell you, the content there is fascinating nonetheless.

Reading it, it occurred to me that the only technical obstacle between temporary and permanent living appears to be... a toilet! Everything else, you can find a solution around it.

There are a couple of options available, but none of them are very good:

For one, you can install RV toilets, but you still have to dispose of your own "dark water".

The alternative is to have access to public restroom facilities somehow, like using the bathroom at work, at a park, or having a gym membership. I think this is the most realistic, though imagine having to drive to the gym every time you need to take a dump.

Lastly, you can just "rough it" in the woods somewhere... but that's most likely illegal. Big Grin

Anyways, that's my crazy observation for the day. That in the end, the majority of our housing cost actually goes into buying a connection to the municipal sewer system. Otherwise, a huge world of interesting and inexpensive alternative dwelling (not just RVs) open up to you.

    Well, I admit this is kind of a gross topic. Big Grin So, I can't that I am surprised about the lack of comments. But it's the truth as I see it.

    I agree completely! Anytime I see an article on someone living in a van or somewhere like that, my first thought is ALWAYS where do they go to the bathroom!

    I think the key is to strategically park somewhere close to a 24 hour a day business that has restroom facilities. That would cover you about 90% of the time.
