Picture of Disposable Unisex Travel Urinal

You know the drill.  You're on a road trip, miles before the next stop.  One of your kids needs to go.  Or worse yet, YOU need to go.  Pulling over by the side of the road isn't an option- perhaps too much traffic, or you have a sleeping baby that you don't want to wake.

My wife has purchased disposable travel urinals before, but they cost $1.50 to $2 each.  This is cheaper. 

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
You'll need:

1 disposable cup (I use old ones destined for the garbage)
1 plastic newspaper sleeve (again re-used).  Alternatively you could use the little baggies made for dog poop.
1 diaper booster pad, or bladder control pad.  Alternatively, you could repurpose unused diapers your child has outgrown
tape (duct or shipping tape)

Can I expect to see these on the side of the road somewhere in a town near you?

Makes me think about all the Pepsi containers I see on the side of the road with a yellow liquid inside.

maybe that's why rednecks like mountain dew so much. It is easy to disguise the bottle for other purposes.
Or even better, Squirt. They love that stuff too. So do it.

Good volume capability, wide opening, and a clever idea. And the lead image is nearly-scandalous.

hmmm, well you're the expert on your lady parts. My wife has used the kind you buy without a problem and didn't see an issue with this one. We have a minivan though, so it gives her some room to stand up a little. Probably would be harder to maneuver your mystery place otherwise.
