I know this might sound crazy to some of you, especially city folks, but I’m super excited about my new bathroom. When I lived in New Mexico or in the backcountry for all those years, I either dug a hole in the ground or had an even smaller bucket with no curtains, so this is quite the upgrade.
And just look at that view!
New Mexico is often times compared to third world countries. Since 42% of the planet’s population lives without flushing toilets, I like to think of my new living arrangement as me joining the other half for awhile. Besides, it’s all composted and turned into soil, which grows food in our garden, so actually, shitting in a bucket helps saves the planet, one bowl movement at a time.
