I have no set work schedule other than I start somewhere around 0700 and leave when I can. Fortunately, I manage a 800,000 sq ft office complex with lots of bathrooms. It's kinda fitting that even with a full time cleaning crew, the cleanest bathroom seems to be the one in our engineering central plant that my guys take care of.

So on the road, it doesn't matter where I go and I ALWAYS travel with a partial roll of toilet paper.
I carry a small package of baby wipes too. Makes emergency stops in high heat and humidity much more comfortable.

Don't give much thought to pooping. I certainly don't need a spotless throne room as I just get it done and get the hell out.

I never understood anyone that liked to sit there in their own (or someoneelses) lingering stench.

edit: Russia has some nasty ass shit depositories.

Having done two combat tours overseas, I've shit in some of the nastiest places imaginable, and in plenty of cat holes. I'm not too picky when it comes to picking a place as a result. As long as I'm not gonna get arrested for it, I don't care where I shit. Fast food restaurants get the majority of my 'business.'

Oh, and a cup of coffee will put me on the shitter within 30 minutes.

After a number of years driving a semi, I pretty much don't give a shit where I shit. Nowadays, I have a factory job and I like to "give back" at work.

They aren't. As someone who used to work cleaning toilets (male and female) I can assure you, women's toilets are generally much worse than men's. I suspect that they are less fixated with cleanliness and more filled with an abhorrence for dirt. Consequently, when their dirt is "someone else's problem", as it is in a public washroom, you're lucky if they will even flush the toilet, much less use the toilet brush.

On a side note, I can say the worst place I ever had to shit was the Nor Cal Renn Faire. Late august in Vacaville. 115*, high humidity, no wind and the porta potties were in the sun. After a weekend with 5,000 people. Who've been eating bratwurst, onion rings and drinking ale...

scarred for life

It´s odd but whenever I work regularly I poop lile clockwork, so to speak - get up, break my fast, poop, shower, dress, leave.

Whenever I´m on holiday my pooping gets random and unpredictable

I really prefer to poop in places where I can wash afterwards - hairy butt issues ...

I used to think using baby wipes was weird, but have been sold on how small they pack (compared to a roll of toilet paper) and how multi-purpose they are (much better for cleaning parts than toilet roll, for example). That's only for when camping mind, when closer to civilisation, I rely on service stations, petrol stations, pubs, leisure centres, restaurants, etc.

+1 Always have baby wipes, Carry them in my backpack everywhere! Have them next to all the toilets in the house!

Thats another thing the baby wipes are good for! And you can shave your crack

The other thing about the Wet Ones is that you can clean the toilet seat, rim, handle and the door handle. I have a slight OCD problem with toilets outside of my house! Even If its spotless and smells good I have to clean it before I can sit down, and then when leave, I have a bottle of hand sanitiser in my Backpack and one in my truck!
