    Yeah the title of the thread is misleading.

    I just get up and go regardless of the weather. Having said that, do any of the people who thinks its gross to pee in a bottle wash their hands before getting back in their hammocks? Personally I think its gross when I see people not wash their hands in a public washroom after peeing but I have to admit I don't necessarily clean my hands after every pee in the back country especially in really cold weather (for sure I wash after every constitutional). Just curious is all.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.

    I can tell a lot of you hangers are young pups . When you get older you'll find you may have to go as much as 3 or 4 times a night . If it's a cold night it's kinda tough to get back to sleep after freezing your uh feet . I guess a lot of you have not been incapacitated in the hospital and have to pee in one of those handy little bent top bottles . To be grossed out by a little pee is towny stuff IMHO .Gee I sweat a lot too does that gross you out as well .

I probably peed off my bladder to be sure today
    Wondering has anybody actually tried (in hammock) using a p bottle with success? or hey, tried without success? if ya wanna share that too?
    The thoughts that flowed thru my mind as other things were not this morning!
    Theres a good chance I'll give this a go one day?, I'm sure...? I have to know!
    Being an old guy who drinks too many fluids to try and stay hydrated I have to get out 2-3 times a nite.
    This problem has caused me to really think about my hammock and sleep system. I want a system that is easy to get in and get out
    I don't want multiple pads, quilts or blankets to mess with.
    My solution was to always buy my covered hammocks (bugnet or wind cover) with additional zippers to allow easy open/closing.
    One TQ, one UQ at the right temp rate for simplicity. The only other thing in the hammock with me is an air pillow which is teathered
    to the head end of the hammock so it is always right where it belongs.

    It's funny now that I think about it that this one simple body function had dictated or helped me simplify my hammock camping system more than anything else.

    Let me add a little to this. Sometimes by the time my bladder manages to get me up from my slumber it's pretty close to go time. And fumbling with shoes etc might compromise the entire mission. It's not every time, but I have camped enough to be in that position more than once. So I took one of those dirty laundry sacks from Walmart, put a couple of grommets into it so I can hang it from the ridgeline (there's the Hennessey connection) with cheap clip style carabiners. I keep the gatorade bottle in there, and it's out of sight and not rolling around in the hammock with me. I also put my shoes in there as soon as I put each foot in.

    For those of you calling this gross or what not, it's not like you fumble around or are using a strainer. Been doing this for years and nary a drop has been spilled. I do have an old post on here about when I was in an Army style jungle hammock and managed to fill a smaller gatorade bottle to the rim. Had to pinch off the stream and then realized I didn't have a third hand to unzip the hammock. Sure that ended up being a little comical but nothing a little rinsing off didn't cure. Feel free to mark me down to not buy my used gear, but fear not, I never sell anything.

    I just watched that on Netflix! Honestly, I don't mind waking up and getting out of the hammock. To me it's just as inconvenient as when I have to get out of bed at home if not more, cuz I have to walk further at home

    LOL how did I miss this thread? Never too old for potty talk It's funny, it happens, it's a daily fact of life. Get over yourselves. Don't like it, don't read it. Life's too short to get riled up for something like this. But if someone posts a how-to video, please close the thread!

    It may help out some others in their quest for hammock nirvana, it may upset some, it may be gross, it may be funny. Just another topic related to being out in the woods.

    Personally, I can't make it work in a hammock but I see merit in the post. I kinda like getting up in the middle of the night to stretch and check out my surroundings if the moon is out anyway. I always fall back to sleep quickly too.

    oh my, never figured my (what i thought was) valid simple question could be taken so many ways
    For those with the threads title, Golden shower. its a little humorous to me, and no insult intended there. but shows the 'context' thing hey? I never even thought of it that way? I was thinking of me accidentally spilling on myself in the middle of the night. I forgot it was a fetish. (I always tell people now my processor is messed up, since my TBI. proof again! that was not my excuse or regret but interesting.
    To the tips from folks. very helpful actually. IF i'm in the situation where i more require something of the sort, then hey! I don't have to learn by mistakes. tried and true. I like the tube thingy, that will be my first thing i'll try if need be.
    I've been sleeping in my new nicaraguan hammock for past few nights now. Its easier to get out! I pee in a white ceramic bucket (with auto spinner device) now, get back in hammock with no fuss! yea! once summer arrives and its HH time. I now have ideas!? thanks all. even the negative non tippers, makes me smile. thats not fetish right? cheers.
    'It was meant to happen?'

    Its how you use what just happened to make the best of everything that follows. - me, I just said that.

    When I think of pee bottles, I always think of Howard Hughes' descent into madness during the later years of his life. Hughes used pee bottles, used Kleenex boxes as slippers, rarely bathed, almost never brushed his teeth, cut his hair, or trimmed his nails. You guys are in great company!

    For those of you who want to go the route of doing your business in your hammock, I found that these bottles worked best at deer camp. The 59 oz. bottle. http://www.simplyorangejuice.com/pro...ange-juice.jsp
