You would be surprised how important bowel movement was considered in the 1920s and 1930s. It was the "health" fad of the times like the keto diet is today. My maternal grandfather never went anywhere without toilet paper. People of those times in the hills of Kentucky considered a good bowel movement as important as exercise. My mom said granddad would line them up once a week for a dose of laxative - I have forgotten the name but it was later discovered to be a carcinogen. Lol.

Anyway, my maternal Uncle adopted many of those habits. When I was living in Montana and he was in his early 70s, he and my aunt came for a visit. We took them to Yellowstone. My Aunt and Uncle had the room next to us. It was getting about 9 am and I wanted to get out and show them the park. Aunt Clara knocked on the door and said "Bill is so upset". I said why. She said because his bowels won't move. She said please give us more time because Bill will be a pain in the azz the rest of the day if he don't have a good morning bowel movement.

I've said it before.... when you see a man walk off into the brush and come back missing a shirt sleeve. That's a man that forgot his toilet paper.

My Uncle said he used a lot of handkerchiefs until he trained himself to carry toilet paper. Lol

So true! When I was 15 years younger and my knees could take it, I used to run 3 or 4 miles everyday. One particular evening in upstate NY, I got 2 miles into my run and my guts let me know i was in trouble. Ducked down in a ravine and cut it loose. Came up out of the ravine missing a shirt sleeve. Continued on.

Look up the history of John Harvey Kellogg. He was a Dr. and responsible for Kellogg Cereal and it was done for bowel health. He also believed in abstinence from M-F relations (except for female treatment for "hysteria").

I've wanted one of the toilet seats on a receiver for a while. I've also considered one with fold up legs. As a truck driver I can give you this tip; the tandems on a trucks drive wheels are usually spaced pretty nicely where you can put a cheek on each wheel and sit pretty comfortably....

This post gave me a :idea: ... what they call a epiphany..
.I'm going to mount the seat of to the side where the "material lands directly in line with the back duals. After completing the crap you simply get in the truck. Back up a few feet, then pull back forward. This should adequately incorporate everything into the soil.

After a quick mock-up I have a problem. I would like to be able to just fold the seat up when not in use. When I do it's going to partially block my taillight. This could cause problems with law enforcement. Back to the drawing board.

Maybe you could build one that slides out from under the truck bed. The spot behind the duals would probably be a perfect fit if you built it to slide out to the side of the truck. You could make it slide out of the side toolbox but would probably need to cut a slot at the bottom of the box to make it slide in completely. You could even build an inclosed box for it to slide in easy enough. This way it would stay clean. You don’t want either kind of “mud butt” when working all day. :lol:

This is a real issue in the field!! A crew working here had a dedicated 16’ trailer with 2 porta a pottys and a trash bin on it. Had side steps that folded down and everything. They moved it closer to the job almost daily.

Maybe you should try a fiber supplement. If I'm eating well you can pretty much set your watch to my 24 hour GI schedule. I go first thing in the morning, then I'm good for the rest of the day. No hunting for smooth, wide leaves on the side of the road for me.

As an aside, is anyone else getting the ad for IBS with the picture of the inflamed colon on this site? Google is scary.

How irregular are your bowel movements? Before I had stomach surgery I was as regular as can be. 9 PM every night, I had my moment. Since I had the gastric sleeve surgery, I don't eat as much, so I am not as regular and it drives me crazy to only "go" once or twice a week.

I'm like a horse. I shyt when I need to, that's healthy. The fact that I'm outside from daylight till often after dark and the fact this time of the year a man might drink several gallons of water per day might contribute to some irregularities.
I eat bacon or sausage and eggs, with milk and grapefruit juice for breakfast, usually fruit for lunch. And meat and potatoes for dinner. You rabbits are of no help with rigging my truck.
