Save your old wool socks!
I’ve used a few outhouses in the winter where I would have loved this idea!
But then I can’t feel my Totos heated seat? Grin
Here in Vermont many camps keep the toilet set by the woodstove. We carry it to the outhouse when nature calls then return it to its hanging spot.
Little more difficult to clean between sits, I would say.
The term “ sitting on your hands “ came from.

It was actually in a Vermont camp where I learned a simpler answer....styro-foam seats. Yep, they make 'em. Feel warm even when it's 10 below.
The padded seats are also warmer in cold weather.
How long does it take before someone runs out of TP and then uses the sock?
I can only imagine the shit spray from some of these old codgers.
No way man. New heated socks are where it's at.
Funny but yeah the spray would turn a good thing into a very gross thing quickly. I had a scientist tell me one time that poop particles float in a bathroom for up to 50mins after each flush. Talk about gross
Hancock, so you had a conversation with a scientist and all you could talk about was "poop particles"? ;0)
I’d liked to have been a fly on the wall, during THAT conversation!………On second thought….not so much.
Thanks! Now my ass itches
Funny story, we were at a negotiations training in Chicago & he dropped that on me while pissing in the can. Ive never been the same since walking into a public bathroom. Somethings are just better unsaid. So i thought id share with you all. Lol
I've been using these for a few years now.
When I'm on a photo/scouting trip or even on a hunting trip.
I've added a different style for my home though.
Given some of the subject (fecal) matter on this thread, it’s surprising the ksflatliner hasn’t chimed in yet. With his propensity to want to $hit all over most other threads, plus him being an expert in this field, I figured he’d be all over this one, as well.
Year ago everybody wore underwear with button up back door, problem solved.
I agree with PECO, I’ll take the cold ass rather than sit on poop or piss embedded in fabric….lol.
Our outhouses in northern MN have a styrofoam cover on the hole. Because the transfer efficiency of styrofoam is almost zero it's only cold for a fraction of a second. Easier to clean when needed.
I dont care what is on the seat of any shithouse - Im still hovering my ass over the hole
Sounds like a scientist with a sense of humor to me...
I'm with you brad! How can anyone sit on a public toilet!? I haven't since very early childhood.
I can't even use Gas Station or Rest Area chitters!
So, I have my own solution that fits perfect on my lil' 5 x 8 trlr ..... and removable
Always after dark, if possible,
Another ingenious use for receiver on trucks.
Snag, don't laugh, I know a guy that has one of those...
I made a outhouse seat from 1" pink styrofoam insulation. If it get "damaged" it's replaceable.
OMG-what has our so called hunters become? Fact, When I was 40 (40 years ago) I had to move/live in the Mountains due to my work place going into a nose dive (Steel Industry). I was layed off for nearly 2 years, unemployment ran out, so manh out of work, nothing avaialble & I STILL had finacial obligations. Anyway, I lived in a Tent on a mountain in Colorado for 6 months. Yes, A TENT. Never saw a human for the first 6 weeks & then got a job building road & cutting trees. Moved camp 3 times due to snow. No out house-cat holes was it. THEN, I did another 6 weeks in the boundary waters of Mn/Canada, in a tent also. Yep, no out houses either. Plenty of Bears though... Now, I still do majority of my DIY, Public land bowhunts in a tent (7 or 10 days is a breeze). When I am in a camp that has an out house, It's a luxury & a little chill on the arse is never a problem..
OMG. Now, this is funny. I don't care who you are. Guess I'm just not that much of a dandy. Went on an Idaho elk hunt a while back. The seat was cold, but the stink was worse. Did all my business in the woods after that. No cold seat, and no stink but my own.
