I can’t squat without peeing on my feet and have wanted one of these for years. So I finally ordered it. IT is a Female Urination Device (FUD), or for the uninitiated a funnel, which comes in either pink or camouflage brown stored in a re-usable tube. No prejudice here. This handy little GoGirl beauty is made from flexible medical grade silicone and is rinseable and reusable. I don’t want to be a Man but have always envied their ability to pee almost anywhere without having to expose their entire lower half. I quite frequently hike wearing a mid-calf length skirt and often find myself with nowhere to hide. When traveling I’ve seen too many icky, dirty toilets, sometimes with no seat, to crouch over while my legs cramp. And I’ve made a few emergency side-of-the-road stops trying to hide in a ditch or hang cheeks over a fallen log. But no more. “Because life’s greatest adventure shouldn’t be finding a bathroom” says GoGirl, and I agree.
This handy little FUD will be going with me to South Africa for the month of March. I can see where it may come in handy while on safari at Kruger National Park, hiking in the Drakenberg Mountains or anywhere out in the bush veldt.
I first read about the GoGirl on RuthieJ’s blog Nature Knitter. Please don't think I'm endorsing this company, yet. I'll have to let you know if this thing really works. I did send the company a letter similar to this post and if they use it I could win a free GoGirl and T-shirt.
