I have been doing a lot of internet shopping over the past couple of days getting last minute bits and pieces for a week long trip to the Isle of Mull. The usual stuff like maps, spare battery for the camera. That sort of thing. I am going to treat the trip as an easy going relaxing holiday so will not be backpacking. I will be using the van as my home for the week, hopefully on idyllic ‘wild’ campspots along the coast or next to remote lochs. I then started to think about toilet arrangements. Is it really environmentally sound to be nipping off into a wood with an orange trowel every day (on camping food sometimes two, three, four…………)? Probably not. What do I do if spending the night at the edge of a village so that I can eat out or have a pint or two? Gets more difficult to be discreet! I therefore finally splashed out on a tiny little porta loo. Embarrassingly it has the words ‘potti’ in the title, something that I have not used for many many years!
A luxury too far?
