    At least we've come far enough now that you all aren't the only ones standing up behind a tree, so don't let it totally surprise you
    DivaB,,several types funnels are made for the women kayakers dressed in dry suits that don't want to disrobe out of all their gear,,and they work very perfect..just do a search for various ones that have been time tested.

    Good to get out away from the lights and under the Milky Way. With good seeing and an appreciation of just how far out into the past you actually are looking. The length and breadth of mankind but much longer. The sword in Orion's belt is 1600 light years away itself. If you look up at that fuzzy patch in the constellation of Andromeda, you're looking at a galaxy who's light started this way over 2.5 Million years ago. Get a pair of binoculars and look even further into the past.

    Or just set back and enjoy the big picture. But when you get a chance, look at Deepskyvideos on Youtube and search out the Deep Field photo made with the Hubble telescope. A section of the sky less then a 10th of the diameter of the moon, nothing significant about the certain patch but filled with hundreds of galaxies some so distant as to be 500 million years younger then the theoretical age of the Universe.

    Either you will be dwarfed by the complete insignificance of our little world, or you'll be confirmed. Either way, "Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space, listen.."

    I'm already amongst the many women that are standing I make my own F.U.Ds, but there is no way of figuring out how go while still laying in a hammock....unless you know something that I don't.

    Have you tried the commercially available ones? I'm looking for ideas and/or reviews. PM me please.

    get up and go pee like 98% of the rest of humanity. Leave those that hose themselves to it. I realize that your plumbing is a little different when it comes to doing what's necessary but eventually we all have to squat. This really is a subject for a) Americans with their fancy idea of toilets and b) a pee specific thread.

    GAWD I wish I was gay sometimes.

    Not to belabor the point, but, western toilets are wonderful aren't they. I like getting out but I LOVE getting back to a warm shower, a comfortable place to sit and 'contemplate' and the flushing power of my American Standard that as advertised, can flush a whole dozen golf balls, but as un-advertised, ain't too bad with a quart of peanut butter with some corn mixed in.

    I didn't want you to think I was really outraged.

    Diva, try the Hennessy Hammock with bottom entry

    For girls standing up, I just don't see why you would want to carry around a piece of plastic. For special uses/dry suits it makes sense but for for regular camping just something else to get dirty and lug around
