Heck, I remember holding it in as I drove through the whole state of New Jersey. So what solutions do you guys use?

I found a car urinal that promises to turn the output into solid with the use of a powder. Seems like a good idea to prevent spills. (http://biorelief.com/products/portable-toilets/traveljohn-portable-urinal-3pack.html). But other urinals are basically an improved version of your basic bottle. There is a cap to prevent leakage.

Ah, now this brings back memories of a hot girl. I shall keep these memories to myself.

A bottle, well capped and prominently labeled, has always worked for me.

I too have memories of a hot girl (My hot girl is hotter than your hot girl, and, best of all, I married her. She is right here.)

He he, brings back memories too. I had a job where we installed and supported e-911 and computer aided dispatch systems. Coming home late one night from a service call I had to go and used my Wendy's cup. Being around 4am I wasn't thinking the best when I wondered what to do which this cup of urine so I rolled down the window and dumped it. The wind splashed it back on my arm and the whole side of the truck. I bet I looked pretty funny squeegeeing the while side of the truck at the gas station I finally came to.

BTW that isn't easy to do in a truck with a manual transmission and no cruise control.

several years ago - had i not been there and seen this first hand i wouldn't have believed it either - i was on an airport shuttle.

on the bumper-to-bumper 405 in the san fernando valley heading towards lax.

i did not hear the conversation, but saw a passenger approach the driver and convince him to stop - we were already stopped, and had been for several minutes - and open the door.

this guy then runs across three lanes of stopped traffic and disappears down off the side of the freeway.

driver closes the door and moves ahead when he has to.

several minutes later a cheer from the passengers goes up as the guy reappears, runs across the three lanes of traffic and reenters the shuttle.

we hadn't moved forward but about 50'.

the rest of the drive was uneventful.

when you gotta go - you gotta go.

All hot girls are hot, and they cannot be compared, because they exist in memory. But let's just say that my hot girl was so hot that no one was man enough to marry her.

I would have just peed on New Jersey myself. Even if I didn't really have to go.

I saw some women's urinals at an outdoor store last week. Interesting but I think I'd prefer to squat most of the time. Winter cold may change my mind about trying it.

Have any women out there tried the clothing line with bottoms that open strategically to lessen our exposure?

And we, dear Haertig, the good people of New Jersey, would respond approximately. We'd tie a knot in for you so that the problem would not repeat itself!
