It's called convenience. If I'm halfway across the campground, and there is a toilet building handy, I'll use it rather than walk all the way back just to go. Although sometimes I have gone back, due to the disgusting conditions I've seen in some of them.

I'm not picking on you Raz. And I agree that you are entitled to have your opinion too. I just prefer my set-up over a portable toilet. It's a personal choice.

We have a cassette. It is very clean. You just fold out the nozzle, push the button on top and dump in the toilet, dump station or site sewer. I have even dumped it in a hole in the ground when boondocking. No stinky pipe to clean. If you use the chemical there is no bad smell.
To each his own...😃

While you are looking at the toilet filling with excrement, I am bird watching. When the hose stops vibrating, I close the black valve and open the grey tank to wash out the hose. Disconnect and rinse with sani-station hose.
I don't see anything. I don't smell anything. And I don't have to carry anything suspicious to the washrooms ( assuming they exist ).

Aah... the Great Toilet Debate! Excellent entertainment on a slow forum day...

I'm glad you have a hobby, Glenn. It helps pass the time while you're waiting in line at a crowded dump station.

Is dumping sewage in a hole in the ground really any different than dumping in an outhouse ( Again a hole in the ground) or peeing behind a tree ?. When we camped for deer hunting (9 day season) ,we would dig a temporary pit toilet . After the season we would put lime in the hole and then fill the hole with dirt.

Explain that to the forest ranger, not me. Carl

The NPS allows the type of outdoor facilities that we use as long as we are 200 ft from a stream ,pond ,lake or river. Where we hunt (State , County and Federal lands ) I have never seen any formal restroom facilities in my 50 years of hunting. The deer , bear ,racoon , coyotes etc don't worry about it and neither will I.

I think I am in my right mind but maybe I should ask my wife. She may agree with you !!. In the military we dug pit toilets all the time in the field. What is the difference between an outhouse and a pit. Actually the pit is cleaner since it is being covered after use.

Here is something else to talk about. I sometimes dump my gray tank on the ground

Again, certainly not something that will endear you to many folks. Bad practice.

Why? Grey water is mostly water with a little soap, perhaps toothpaste, and some food particles. When I camped in Utah the host asked me to dump my grey water on the nearby plants. What do you think tenters and backpackers do?

Food particles attract rodents and the next camper might not enjoy the smell or the sight.

I said nothing of dumping at the camp site. You just assume. As for smell, it smells like soap. As for sight its gone in 5 minutes. In certain parts of the country grey water is used for watering lawns, plants, etc.
