Right from the first time we talked about taking an extended family trip into Central Asia, Julie would say "I don't know if we can do that to the girls" she was of course talking about the bathroom situation ! If you can imagine your worst bathroom nightmare, now add smell to it, OK do you have that picture in your head, now double it and add a few "Locals" staring at you, and you are almost there.
Many of the projects that we are involved with do not even have a washroom . We tried to figure out different solutions. one was going to be building a Porto potty on wheels that we could tow from sight to sight. Then a few weeks back we were looking through the Sears spring and summer catalog and found this. It is sold as a change tent. Now just add a portable toilet and there you have it. The whole tent collapses into a small little carrying bag and weighs about 1 lb.
Who knows our portable "Julie Johns" might become popular over there.....I know they will be popular with the teams.
