    RedHeadKel:  I wouldn’t go out of my way to pee in the woods, but if I was camping or hiking and I had to pee and there was no bathroom, then yeah, I’m going to pee in the woods! The occasion hasn’t come up in years, but when I was younger traveling in northern Maine, I had to pee on the side of the road or in the woods several times since there are no towns (and therefore no bathrooms) for miles and miles.

    RedHeadKel:  If i need to and there’s no option, sure.  Just because, not so much.  If there’s a bathroom I’ll choose that thanks.

    I had in the past but always tried to “rush” it because in my mind, a bug/snake/bear/fly/butterfly/leaf will try to attack me while doing it 

    Now, my sister? All the time. She has the tiniest bladder. Everytime we went out we had to stop every few miles to let her pee.

    I mean…if I’m camping or backpacking…sure, I’ll pee in the woods.  That’s kinda the only option, righr?

    But “just because?”  No.

    Nope, nope, heck NO!!! No bugs or leaves or bigfoots are gonna touch my bottom while I’m trying to pee. I was pretty much forced to go in the woods once as a small child on a long roadtrip with my parents. I cried and cried. It was dark. I was terrified. Never again.

    We camp a lot, in the woods and on the beach.  So I have popped many a squat in the woods and in the sand. lol

    If I’m hiking or camping then yes, if no bathroom facilities are available

    I would pee in the woods if there was no other option, but I’m not a hiker or a camper so the situation would be unlikely.

    If I’m camping yes I don’t mind popping a squat but I generally don’t do it..

    I wouldn’t unless it was like an absolute emergency. DH hates camping etc so I don’t think he’d be peeing in the woods either.

    RedHeadKel:  My SO loves when this conversation comes up with our friends. He likes to poke fun at me because I pee outside in every country we visit (Costa Rica, Brazil, Bahamas, Canada etc..) and I always opt to pee outside instead of in a porta potty. I can’t take that smell! I’ve got no shame, if I’ve got to go then it’s go time!

    Yeah, hiking or camping sometimes doesn’t leave any other options lol.
