Wow that's pretty nuts.

As a side note, I do try to pee in my backyard whenever possible. It saves water as well as wear and tear on the plumbing.

Before I read the story, it made me think of a friend's place out in the mountains.  He said to piss at the edge of the yard to save water and mark the territory so mountain lions would stay away.  One night, I was there for a party and pissing at the edge of the yard.  "I'm drunk and pissing in the dark at mountain lions.  Maybe this isn't such a great idea."  The next day, he was calling everyone who came to the party to make sure they were ok.  He found part of a fresh deer by the path and was worried that a mountain lion had traded up.

As a camper, that story sends shivers down my spine. One of the worst camping trips we had ever been on was when my boys were Young. We had gone to a privet campground in Main. I had herd the a hurricane coming. My husband assured me that they never come to Main. Our first night there was the wickedest thunderstorm we have ever encountered. Everything was wet. The next morning, they told us to evacuate because hurricane Bob was coming. No one gave us information about where to go. We drove to the mall, but that kicked us all out. Again no one knew what we were supposed to due. We were getting scared. The rain was going side ways. The trees were bending. We finally saw a police station. The told us they were closing. I was in tears. Trees were starting to snap, with a terrible sound. The police told us were a shelter was located. We sat there with frightened residents and a busload of French Canadian tourists. It was terrifying, watch out the windows as the hurricane took down trees and whipped backyard furniture in the air. By 9:00 pm, they residents were aloud to go home. We spent the night with 6 wonderful Red Cross volunteers, who brought in sandwich ingredients, pizza, peanut butter and jelly, pizza and even Duncan Donuts and 27 Canadian tourists, only one of whom spoke English. We had travel games that we loaned out. We had a great time that night. The next morning revealed the damage. I looked at my husband and said, "So, hurricanes never come up to Main?" He found us a great hotel and we salvaged the trip.

Fark your faith. You know what saved you? Your vehicle. Thank Henry Ford you backward farks.

The fire is under investigation.

I feel a lot better now knowing that I'm not the only one peeing in your backyard.  That might have been weird.

French-Canadians can be loathsome, but I wouldn't consider them unsafe.
It sounds to me like you were looking to score free peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and may have caused quite a bit of damage to a lovely little state.

I hope you apologized when you left.

That's why I pee in the sink. Washing my hands is essentially flushing the toilet.


I need the shower for a poo, though.

was there no sign of fire anywhere in the area just a few hours prior when they went to sleep?

I tend to piss outside when I'm drinking. So 2-3 times a week.

"Pissing in the dark at mountain lions" is a great name for a book chapter.

God set that fire and sabotaged the credit scores of other campers, which forced them to own less reliable vehicles, so that they would die.

I try to use the backyard when the neighbors aren't home. Didn't say it was my backyard.

I know a guy who used to piss in the sink at concerts or sporting events when there was a line at the urinals.  Thought it was funny back in the day, kind of disgusted by it now.

Urinals nowadays are ridiculous.

Circa 2010-11, during our annual trip from Chicagoland to In-Law-Land in he Central Valley, we drove through the 32 hr trip & hit the East Gate of Yosemite Park before it opened, which meant Free. We drove in.

There were no signs anywhere warning us a fire had very recently burned through. We wound up driving many, many miles through a burning hellscape with standing flaming trees lighting the dark not 50' from the road. It was scary, but since the road was open & not closed, we pushed on, Hubby & I. By the time we got through to the West Gate near Mariposa, it was just getting to Sunrise & the landscape was normal again. The West Gate was still closed, so we'd avoided paying the Park Fee. For us, using Yosemite, even paying the $20 "toll,"  saves hundreds of miles because of the lay-out of I-80.

Honesty: we are both cheap. We always drive through the 32 hr trip to get here/there faster, & mainly avoid a motel/bedbugs. The Park Gates close (remain open but unmanned) at Sunset-ish. If you hit a manned exit gate, they will ask you for your receipt, which if you don't got, now you get to pay. But if you enter & leave when both are unmanned, it's a free transit. There's no way to drop Honesty Money. Generally, if we left Chicagoland @06:00, we'd be having brunch with Family @32-34 hrs later. Driving to Chicagoland, we always paid the Park Fee.

We learned to look for fire reports. That was a nervous adventure!

I was proactive and went at the radiator shop at the last stop.  It said it was the best place in town to take a leak.

...and...
You got the sandwich!
Overall I'd say you won. You beat the system. Even the locals gave up early.

Good job!
