Girl! Totally Jealous While Camping? Review Of The SHEWEE
Girl, the only time I am jealous of a guy is when I am camping. So DJ, my friend and co-host on Cat Country Utah, bought me a device to try to make peeing easier for women when camping. I packed it away while moving and lost it for awhile. But I found it again and reluctantly decided to give it a try.
We go camping for long stints in the middle of Red Desert Wyoming. My Great Grandfather named most of the area and homesteaded on a lot of acers out there. We have a great family reunion and some of the family camp for 2 weeks!
While out on motorcycle or side by side rides, peeing is ridiculous. I admit it. I am JEALOUS!
There doesn't seem to be a height where your pee doesn't splash on some form of clothing. Having to squat, spread your feet out as far as possible and hover at just the right height so you don't get your legs, feet and shoes peed on and muddy is less than ideal. Trying to do all of that while holding back pee, is hard. It is so undesirable that you wait to pee until you really have to, and that makes it worse.
Against my better judgement, I decided to see why someone would actually buy one of these contraptions. The version I was given is called the SHEWEE.
This was a fail for me. How do I put this delicately? Um....the rate at which I urinate is apparently much too fast for a device like this. Also, what the heck do you do with it when it has pee all over it? I just put that back on the side by side to drip in it?
When I got back to camp It was full of muddy dust and I had to clean it out and leave it to hang dry. All in all it was just much more work than it was worth. Instead of getting pee on your shoes, throwing some dirt on it and letting it dry, you get pee elsewhere and have to deal with the device for the rest of the trip.
Now that I've used it, can I use it for a white elephant gift?
