On some major roadways, traffic jams can result in instances of hours without movement. For guys, this ain't no big deal, but for us gals, it's a real problem. We need a service provided by the highways where someone could bike in an outhouse or several to take care of the stranded travellor's needs.

       Believe it or not there exists, in America, a most appalling variant of this idea. It consists of a "shelf" that rests on bumper or tail-gate of a pickup truck. This shelf includes a seat, splash-shield, & 3/4 length curtain. The user rests on the shelf/bench with legs resting over the splash-shield. And finally the distressed person draws a small curtain about themself which provides a modicum of privacy that only an ostrich could appreciate.

       Why should the city need to provide them. Pop-up tents are already widely available, and it sgould only require a few design alteratuions...Also, as soon as the Guerilla HalfBakers get their schemes uderway, inflatable houses will enter the market. Again, slight modifications. Or you could just wear diapers.

       When I read the words 'emergency outhouse', the first thing that came to mind was my folding camp shovel. I am such a hick.

       Well, garden trowel was my first thought. Hick, hick, hooray!
