If you are walking through the campsite carrying a cooler full of beer, you'll be welcomed to join the campfire conversation.
If you are carrying a porta potti or a cassette, not so much.

Honestly, the debate about black tanks here has me bewildered. They are simple, they work, and they've been in use for many decades. Each and every waste disposal method has it's plusses and minuses.


I was under the impression if you were boondocking you would have to haul your waste to a dump station. I have been in campgrounds where campers towed blue tanks behind their tow vehicle to the dump station. That isn't much different than a porta potty, just bigger.

That's true, it's not much different - but I've never had to use an external container. If I'm boondocking my black tank (19 gallon) takes a long time to get filled - more time than I usually camp in one place. Just head to the dump station on the way out. The highest level my black tank has ever seen was two thirds, and that was after 12-13 days of camping at two areas of a National Forest. By then I was ready to move on anyway. I suppose if we were a larger family instead of just the wife and I, we would fill a black tank much quicker.

The gray tanks are another matter. It's amazing how fast we can fill a 26 gallon gray tank, and that's with "conservative" water use. Of course there are many boondocking locations where they allow you to drain gray tank water on the ground, so depending on where you camp, it may not be a problem.

In the end it's a matter of personal preference. I have a 30 gal grey tank. It is usually not a problem to empty it. I won't mention the places I have dumped it. We don't need another heated discussion about that.

One note... If your gonna have a gray tank, you might as well have a black tank.
Those extra trips with the blueboy are often just gray water.

By the time I need to dump my black and grey tanks, I also need to fill up the fresh and resupply my beer and grocery cache.
Never seen an outhouse or toilets with a beer and wine store.
