Pissing like a man

One of the first things people ask me when they hear about this trip is: how do you wash yourself and what about going to the toilet? For me, Sanne, wet toilet towels work best. I keep them thawed out in my cloth. I clean about everything with it except my hair. Two a day are enough and I can burn them afterwards.

For obvious reasons this is a bigger problem for me than it is for the 5 guys, but there are tools for almost everything.
The urinal funnel. My old one broke, but fortunately I found a new one in Germany. It has found favour amongst outdoor enthusiasts, allowing them to go to the toilet at will, without the need to remove layers and layers of clothing. After a bit of practice I can even pee in a pee-bottle inside a sleeping bag. Ideal for days we have to stay in the tent because it’s storming.
