Would you poop in my outhouse?

One of my projects in Montana this Summer was making my outhouse more attractive. Pooping in an outhouse can be difficult, even for me, as spiders are crawling around your tush, packrats are looking on with disdain as you sully their Winter home, and you wonder if you will fall in. My step-mother, who had a decent sense of humor, decided, in the 1970s, that we should paint our outhouse to look like a brothel. Everything was done in red, and we even had some fabric/fringe in there, also in red. But the years took their toll, boards were rotting, and sitting there trying to poop had become a risky proposition. I took charge this Summer, replaced some old rotting boards, and painted the main area in "Burgundy" spray paint. I then repaired the toilet seat (using Gorilla wood glue) and painted it brown, to match the cabin, 20 yards away. The result was the luxury accomodations you see in the picture. Would you poop in my outhouse? There is a 99% guarantee that you won't fall in, and I find it rather attractive now.

This is much nicer than any outhouse or pit toilet I have ever used. I can think of some occasions where I would poop in an outhouse like this.

Oh, I would have to think about it for a while. You did a fine job fixing it up, but would take some thought before I would use it.

I...am...tearing up. You mean my excellent work wouldn't make you feel like you were living in luxury? There's even toilet paper in there, only marginally sullied by nesting mice and packrats.

@TheHorse I am so sorry about the tears. It really is a nice-looking outhouse. I still would have to mull things over first.

@TheHorse Beats the heck out of tearing a page from the Wishbook and crumpling it. At my age it is also probably much easier to use than a chamber pot.

I would; however, I would probably have to poop a few times before I got there.

In town, I hope. I tend to use the grocery store (a nice clean potty 20 miles away) when my outhouse leads me to...constipation.

@TheHorse As I said, too old. I aged a lot after cancer and chemo. A few years before I had gone to Chungará lake, the highest in the world. In spite of chewing coca, I had a headache for days afterwards. But now, I´m just an ol´ witch. I don´t dare climb to such heights.

We're talking deep in the mountains of Montana. Doesn't it exude a feeling of luxury and safety? I even swept away the spider webs.

@NJChicaa I have never once seen a venomous spider in my outhouse. And no mouse or pack rat has ever brushed against my delicate nether regions.

Egads, it has been better than sixty years since I had that pleasure, (unless of course one counts porta potties, which I suppose are portable outhouses) My uncle had a gas station in Arkansas, he had no toilets, but an outhouse out back. It was nasty, and snakes liked to crawl inside to get out of the heat. Spiders, flys, gnats, mosiquitos, crickets, I still remember all the critters that tried to make their home inside that little four foot by four foot smelly room.

@TheHorse Not to my knowledge but hey, I was five, what do I know? There were some pretty nasty ones there. couple of different kinds of rattlers, copperheads, and water moccasins. But I don't know what kind they pulled out of there and killed that day back then.

I guess if I really had to go I would poop in your outhouse. I can think of some times traveling where nature was VERY demanding and I had the decision of pooping somewhere unpleasant, or going in my pants. I am sure you know which one won.

I think it looks great. Do you give it a good spray with an insect spray when you first arrive? That might be a good precaution.

My parents used to take me to visit a relative who lived out in the country many years ago. I used to put off going to the toilet because I found it so gross, the smell in the heat just turned my stomach Sorry, I just don't think I could go back to that again although if I was desperate I might!.

Is this your outhouse? I would say, mostly, yes! It’s very rustic and pretty. I try to avoid going in outhouses unless it’s an emergency. And there are ALWAYS extra large spiders milling about!
