Would be pretty cool. I like the idea of September, when the ground is usually dry and the really hot days have passed.

Depending on when, I'd be up for this, I've met a fair few of you now but I like the idea of actually attending a group meet for once....

 

Dunno what car I'd bring though. Does anyone know what I'll own next week, let alone in a few months?!

Muddy SF16 coincided with Glasto I think, so all good porta-loos in England were there I guess. The one we had was a minger.

Whoever supplied the ones at the Welshfests did a very good job, they had the cleanest, least wretchworthy shit box I have ever experienced. Can you remember who they were, Ian?

 

The only thing wrong with the SF16 shit box was the lack of blue chemical. None at all. Even the smallest amount does wonders for taking the smell away. The stuff we used on the megabus was a 100ml bottle to treat something like a 100L waste tank.

The other problem was the cost £90 and the other quotes I got last year were £120 and £156. 

 

I have not checked for this year but assuming the cost is similar, if 50 people are using/contributing  that is not a problem, but if it is only 10 then it is far too expensive.

Yeah.
My friend digs one when we have gathering on his land in Wales.
Essentially, you dig a big hole, put a structure over it with a seat and door and leave a big bin of sawdust outside it and a smaller one inside.
Peeps go in, do business, cover with sawdust.
One composting toilet served 50 people and didn't smell bad at all over 5 days.

We have a very high water table only 12 inchs or so below ground level during wet periods, how does this effect things.

 

How long before you have to move to a new hole?

 

Yes we have an operational JCB. In fact I used it to straighten the front bumper on my Citroen LNA this morning!

If you can get the hole deep enough and people don't deposit floaters it should be fine !

Whereabouts in Fuckinghamshire are we talking about? Currently working in MK and could probably trick SWMBO into letting me do a Friday over to Saturday. Since it's a field, hot Ami action seems appropriate.

Yes - definitely up for one or two of these, they are a great laugh. Can bring tea, coffee, crisps, biccies etc but not a toilet I'm afraid!

I want to see the GT6 move under its own power for a start, also have a go on the tractor again . What was its name?

I think composting toilet is the way forward, we just need understand what the options are for the least smelly, most durable, size, best position, best looking dunny!

"so what did you do at the weekend Sam?"

Well I played with a job called felicity, started a car that's not run since 1994, drove an awesome (insert car here) and shat in a hole in the floor...

Is there not a pub nearby we can all go for a group dump/pint at some point? We just need to synchronize our movements.

I think if enough blokes hang around in a pub drinking beer for a sustained duration, it happens. Synchronised Men's shitter cycles.
