Seriously, a foldable army shovel, wipes and a thick enough shrub will do it.

Just bury the remains under at least 1 foot of dirt.



Is the 'thick enough shrub will do it' like the old corn cob trick?

Or was it meant like a 'limb' to to use for support and rest over...

While this is true, with any kind of population density a location needed to be established to protect health. If you got there, somebody else will. Carry or bury.

I just assumed the reason for "thick enough shrub" was for privacy. Truck drivers, seen "kicking the water out of a tire" have been charged and convicted of "sex crimes"

Several years back we were returning home from a trip late at night. My wife had to "go" very bad. I saw a sign for a gas station at the next exit so pulled off and drove the three miles into town just to find said gas station closed for the evening. As we were returning to the expressway she really had to go so I pulled over so she could go in the field next to the road. Well that "field" turned out to be a cemetery so I accused her of pissing on someone's grave. And after getting back on the expressway the next sign we see was a rest area sign not more than 5 miles ahead.

I got the "public urination is a misdemeanor...." lecture from a weigh station cop while changing a trailer tire in their parking area.

Yes, it is a misdemeanor, or ignored if seen by a rational officer. Personally, I took a littering charge. But just outside of a small town, a guy leased to the same company as I was charged with exposure when Barney saw him.
What would the Ranger do when faced with a screeching mother after her daughter asked "What is that guy doing?"

Which ever way you choose to go, when you are finished, I hope it is all behind you.

How about getting a Bumper Dumper?
If privacy is an issue, rig a small tent thing or a tarp around it.

Thanks to all who responded and will still. Some humorous and some helpful. We're talking about driving in our car or truck, not wanting to tow the Aliner every where we go when the (#2) urge hits an 89 year old woman so most of the do "it bury it" aren't the solution I'm looking for, maybe there isn't one.
Anyway, i had a good laugh at some of your replies but then I suppose it "depends" on ones sense of humor.
Happy day to all, hope everyone has a great new year.

As long as bears s**t in the wood so shall I when hunting. No burying or anything that the wildlife doesn't do or any hunting dog for that matter.
