Yes. If your aim is good enough.

Other than fitting a loo roll dispenser, which arrives tomorrow, the VIP bog is ready for Cabin Dwellers  :dance:

Is that the same model shower as the other two? They're the best electric showers I've used. Very good flow, pressure and temperature. What wattage are they?

The other two are slightly more powerful at 10.5Kw, the new one is an 8.5Kw. I cheaped out on the shower because I had a length of armoured cable in the shed which I used to supply the new VIP bog and it isn't quite large enough to handle the 10.5Kw.  :shy:

Two Cabin Dwellers have used it tonight and gave it the thumbs up. I want to see what happens in the morning when there are three showers running at the same time.

I know it saves the lazy VIPs walking to the the other showers/toilets but it's passing trade for the dragon wagon ...  :stirpot:

Do you have a receptacle in which I could place my Gentlemans Tena pants? I have observed your signage advising me against placing them in your lavatory. :)
To be happy, I don't need private helicopters,a Florida house or a yacht. I'm fine with my motorcycle,a trip to a forest in Bavaria and some lunch money.

You will find a suitable receptacle either side of your bike, you probably know them as panniers  :thumb:

He has a small case on the left pannier mount with the letter KTM on:
Knickers, Tena, ( Men's)


I've wondered why he never has to stop for a piss on the 300 mile Sunday jaunts. This explains things.

Don't worry TLP. The small sizes probably are flushable.

For those who don't want to go down the Tena Pants (mens) route.

SWMBO (for a small fee) will simply install a catheter.  :fix:
Run the tube down your leg and down the outside of your boot.
May want to flash the haszards to warn those following you.  lol

You could use the same option to run the tube out the side of the tent to avoid the midnight walk to the toilets.  :obscene-drinkingchug:

One mate bought and fitted "The Urinator" to his dry suit.
Basically a tap attached on the outside of the suit with a pipe long enough to get to the nether region attached to a catheter condom.

He tried to demonstrate the how it worked while on the boat.
We looked at the tap expecting a golden stream over going over the side.
Nothing.
Looked at his face and saw the look of surprises then shame.

He then said...

"The condom has come off"
 lol   lol   lol    lol   lol   lol

Should have bought a smaller size...
He blamed the water temperature, it was August.

Spike Milligan relates in one of his books (Rommel? Gunner who?) how it got very cold when they were in North Africa in WW II. In order to solve this very problem one of his fellow squaddies got hold of a bicycle inner tube and turned it into a normal tube by making one cut. When in his sleeping bag he put one end .. well you get the idea I'm sure.
Anyway apparently it worked fine until the night someone tied a knot in the far end of the inner tube.
