My sister in Maine still has one at their camp.
Used one as a kid at my grandmothers house.
These outdoor potty shacks had things that you don’t usually get in the house, like snakes, wasps and hornets, large spiders under the seat, and the sears catalog, if the catalog was gone, it was white cobs and red cobs. There was nothing like summers on the farm.
Snakes liked to hide over the door, scare me to death.
Me but really had to watch for snakes that liked to be in there ! My grandfather’s sister had a house with an out house and a pump in the kitchen for water.She lived at two mile run in Franklin, Pa.
I have…..and fought bees wasp and anything else that was in one! I was a child but as an adult I just don’t believe I could survive one now! Hahaha I’m scared of everything creepy crawly! And I own it! Sheeew! 😂
Military field latrines and grand parents house
I never shared at the same time. All we had was Sears&Roebuck catalog for toilet paper .
Yeppers, had the pot and lid under the bed for emergencies. Build one for huntin lease n mountains of new mexico
I HAD TO USE ONE GROWING UP. WE HAD NO INSIDE FACILITIES TIL I WAS 16 YRS. OLD…IT WAS AWFUL…
Until i was 12, a d daddy put water into the house and put in a bathroom.
my grandparents had one on their farm, I was four years old and I remember running down the hill to get to it
Just returned from lovely visit to idyllic lake in Canada.complete with “long drop” facilities ( plus mossies ) up the path ,very fierce in middle of night……
Me long long time ago as a child visiting my grandmother. She had one outside by a chicken coup and one inside her house.
Me! Mine fidnt have a door and you had to take your shotgun with you.
It was my galleon when I played ( often) pitates. Someone often had to walk the plank. It had a flat scullion roof with a lattice privacy panel at the front.
My grandfather had an outhouse on skids, and he could hook the old horse to it and move it from place to place. The fun was finding where he moved it too in the middle of the night.
Our “second bathroom” was an outhouse behind the garage at my parents original house in Twin Lakes, WI.
More times than I care to remember. When I was a kid, my parents bought a rustic old cabin in northern New Hampshire. It only had cold running water … no heat except for the fireplace, and NO BATHROOM.
You had to take a hike up a hilly wooded area ( at night with a flashlight) over a small bridge spanning a dry creek and to an outhouse that looked much like that photo.
Spooky at night… but as kids we didn’t mind, we thought it kind of fun.
As we got toward our teen years though…
Yes I did and it was across the road and bad memories from this when I lived in Georgia.
Unfortunately, yes.wasps,sears robuck catalog gor paper,folders coffee can in the winter when it was too cold and dark.
I did, I was 16 yrs old and it was disgusting. Visiting relatives in rural Olahoma. The rest of the farm experience was wonderful, however. Seeing a litter of pigs being born, my first real crush, taking a bath in an aluminum tub with little critters running around in the dimly lit shed.
I had to use one on a trip to a lake with friends, no bathroom only the outhouse. I was so glad when the week ended. Hated it.
Of course at both of my grandmas’ houses ….one of them scrubbed it every week when she scrubbed the floors in the kitchen every time she painted inside she painted the toilet it had a tile floor like the kitchen and had 3 holes 2 big ones and a small one lower down for kids…
I have used one a few times when visiting grandparents or other older relatives at family reunions or something like that. Never lived with one, thank goodness. I was a kid when I was forced to use one occasionally and I hated it.
Yes, and it is amazing I ever got potty trained
When i was in junior hi i went home with a girl from school. I asked, wheres the bathroom, in the back yard. I said no really. Wheres the bathroom…in the back yard. I thought…omg what did i get myself into. Lol
Omg my grandpa and grandma laird had one they lived on a farm
I always wanted to put one in the back yard and build flower bed around it( nonfunctional of course)
Last week at my friend’s cabin in Montana 😌😁
We had a white rabbit, and every time he was let out, he inevitably dug under the look walls.
Then PLOP into the pit.
Mum had a long piece of wire with a hook on it. She would hook Fluffy out, carry him home on the wire, hose him off, and put him into the cage. For next time.
No matter what Dad did, we couldn’t stop Fluffy going Plop.
Yep, hot in summer, freeze ass off in winter. Some neighbors put lights in theirs. We had two holer
Ohhh yeah many a time and in all kinds of weather
