I got the plans for the earth privy and think they are great. I will send them to anyone who wants a copy. I am in the process of scanning them and offering them that way. They are pretty close in measurement to the one I built but I think they will be great for future attempts.

Hey, who said the inspiration was "free"? It's so great to think that I can now refer to myself as a "Thunderbox Muse".

A face that launched a thousand....oh, never mind.

By the way, what special treats did the supervisor-dog get? Not beer, I hope.

Any one need them passed on? I'd be happy to do so.

Here is an update on this thread. I have brought out my box but didn't have time to dig a hole or put it together. Next time I guess maybe in a few weeks. I still have privy plans if someone needs them.

It's a box folks...do you really need plans to build a box with a hole cut out of it?

There are a thousand ways to screw it up. Your brief description didn't include the splash board, and thus it would be a lousy thunder box if you built it just like that. :lol:
What should be included in the instructions are specs as to where to place the thing, i.e. soil criteria and distance from water.

Erhard you're right...one could build a triangular prism! :D

But seriously now..a splash card....what have you been eating Earhard? Lay off the blue berries and Schlitz! :clap:

Hey john,

I am planning on building one this week-end.

Do you think you could send me over the plans.

Thanks

20 years of canoeing and I've never stayed at a site that had a Thunder Box. Either I'm paddling in the wrong places or the perfect places. You guys should really try paddling some more remote areas...while you guys are enjoying these fancy thrones, I'll be out fishing/exploring.
:P

Just kick the duff away and dig a hole...Thunder Box eh...how long do you guys stay at a site for anyway that would warrant putting one of these terd houses in?

It was a bit of a shocker when I first saw it. :o
But this is a Provincial Park that caters to canoeists.
It does go against the idea of a "Wilderness Park" classification. They even have miniature versions of the standard campsite and portage signs so to be not as visible and spoil the wilderness. Then you come across this. :roll:

IMHO because it is a Provincial Park I see nothing wrong with errecting a privy like this. But because it was visible from the water, that's what made it an eyesore.
