Not a problem at all! There are enough crazy drivers out there already without bears behind the wheel. "Smokey Bears" excepted, of course....

Yes, I joined Escapee's and then found that most of their own campgrounds have a self contained rule. I promptly let my membership lapse. Escapee's campground book for up to 50% camping was very similar to Passport America which I belong to with much lower member fees.

By the by, I consider my trailer self-contained. My PP has a black water holding tank which I only have to dump roughly weekly. I dump the PP into the campground sewer systems not unlike any trailer or RV that has bigger black water tank. It's quite easy to dump it without spilling a drop.

My latest brain teaser is figuring out how to put in a black water drain system. I want pour the BW from the PP into a sewer hose from inside my trailer to the sewer hose which is connected to the campground site, thus becoming totally self-contained. I have a grey water tank with the obvious exit gate. So what I've thought about is a "Y" rather than 2 separate gates, although a stand alone hose to gate might be easier. The BW hose to the gate would be short and I think easy to keep clean. My biggest problem at the moment is the location of the BW drain. Where I'd like to put it in relationship to the gray water drain gate is not feasible because the convertor is in the way. Any way, this is just my latest brain teaser to keep the gray matter upstairs moving.

So the problem is the many doing what the few used to, dirty rats, bears who have it better, white flags in the woods, the definition of self containment, guys with buck fever and opining on the Internet. Sounds about right.

Backpackers are not the only ones who face waste disposal issues. Any one who deer hunts faces the same problem . When you are 2 miles back in the woods you are not going to walk back to camp just to pee . I have a couple of 1/2 gallon plastic jugs in my deer stand for storing urine until I can properly dispose of it . Luckily in Wisconsin it get cold enough to freeze liquids so odor is not an issue and no scent to alarm the deer

That is a lot of volume. You must either be staying up in your tree for several days at a time or else you bring with you a large supply of beer.

I personally have no issues with people who use adequate measures for disposing of their solid and liquid wastes. What disgusts me is not being able to walk more than a few steps away from a campsite without either stepping in some former campers crap or seeing a landscape of "white flowers" everywhere you look.

Our problem wasn't always us finding it first, it was the dog getting there before an intervention could be launched. Too late. Need a breath mint dog with that last snack you found?

Too true about dogs but I wish I had not read this while eating a chocolate chip cookie.

OP was referencing campground guide that said no porta-potties, self contained only. Seems to me if it was a pack out waste situation porta potti is a pretty good way to accomplish that. I know that is how I would deal with tent camping in the national forest for a long week-end.

If it was campground rule it may have been more along the lines of the old "Class A motor homes only" that one would see in campground guides. No Class C or Pickup mounted motor homes allowed, or pop-ups. Motor Coach only. And that did not include my school bus camper conversion.... even if it was a Blue Bird body.

Definition caged off the internet: Unlike the Class C motor home, the chassis of a Class A does not come from the factory with a driving compartment (or cab).
