What about mosquitoes and bottle flies?

Living in the woods. (very wet woods) Mosquitoes are always around. Also with a dairy farm on my block and a cattle farm bordering my back property line, my black tank offerings don't really make much a difference. When they spread the liquid manure in the field across the street, even the flies head out of town..
And I thought I lived in a rural area! 65 acres. Horse farm to the north. Nearest neighbor 100' away, after that 400'.

When the dairy farmers in the area fertilize the fields, everybody knows it.

My wife and I are both transplanted city slickers. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. We went from a 1/4 acre to 40 acres and love it. People at work always ask why we have a camper as we already live in the woods

I always get a chuckle when people think its the end of the world when black water hits earth. Where do you think cows go to the bathroom

I agree most folks don't have a clue about waste water.

But one has to be responsible with one's waste. And farmers have to be responsible with all the waste from all the critters and plants in their care.

For me, it is too inconvenient to get the BW discharge deep enough into the woods on our land to bother using the toilet while parked. Besides, the house is only 50' away.

-------------

My coworkers already know I'm crazy. They don't bother asking why I live in a rural area and go boondocking in The Adirondacks.

Really?

Glad we all do not use this logic.

NO toilet paper ever goes in the tank. We have a small waste basket for that. It closes tightly enough where odor has never been a problem.

Just a note for those who have not yet experienced this: If you have a Fantastic fan in the bathroom DO NOT have it running when you flush!

What logic are your referring too? I would never dump black on a campsite if that's what you picked up from my post.

6 out of 10 people in the world don't have access to a flush-able toilet so not everybody moved passed it..

May I ask why the fantastic fan should be off when flushing. I'm assuming it has to do with pressure?
