    I can't tell you the amount of good-natured shit I took from a couple of friends on a trip this year to northern Idaho about using a piss bottle at night! There's nothing quite as comforting as waking up in the middle of a cold night when your alarm bladder goes off, knowing you're gonna have to crawl out of your nice warm sleeping bag to drain the snake and then realize that relief is about an arm's length away! No more rummaging around for your boots or camp shoes and freezing your ass off or standing in the rain. A wide-mouth Gatorade piss bottle is the height of camping luxury.

    You guys have no idea how lucky you are! At least the moonlight on the glistening snow is beautiful at 3AM...

    One of the great joys of being a guy: all the world is our urinal!
