She had read the heat I took from other RVers about daring to question the poop-n-pump paradigm. People were angry that I suggested the possibility of not using drinking water to flush away waste. We compared notes; she had also encountered hostility over the notion, more than having her idea poo-poo-ed.
The Humanure Handbook is an awesome and funny read (warning: does not always refer to manure as "poop"), but some of these other books look pretty interesting, too. [If you ever want to buy a book from Amazon, please consider using my link here on the blog. I am also a big fan of the public library system, and recommend that resource highly.]
I look forward to hearing from her again with more potty talk. Elaine! Don't forget to write!
Late-breaking news: The urine bucket will NOT WARN YOU that it is full. Caveat urinator. That's Latin for "we won't make that mistake twice."
