    We were just watching Dragons Den, something we don't normally watch, anyway this guy had a business supplying a universal manhole key which Debra Meadon invested in. I thought a key such as this would be extremely handy for wildcampers

    Ashley isn't gay, surely???

    Mind you, his stage niece, Jasmine (Thomas), played for the other side. And very decoratively, too, I must say

    Some strange things on there, this one , he started making 18 years ago and he was surprised when no one wanted it at £200 and went bankrupt now he's making it for£34, whatever could have been the difference?

    No it's only a metal bar with a variety of screw on ends like a glorified drain rod, don't know where he could have £200 from and remember this was 18 years ago(n)

    Never had to lift a street manhole to dump my black or gray waste.
    Plenty of toilets around or in to the woods dig a hole and burry it we don't use chemicals.

    Hi.
    "Travellers" do it all the time,and sometimes don't even replace the lid. You may find that you need a sledge hammer as well to,"Bounce" a cover off,you would be surprised how well stuck/seated,some have become,while your at it,you could open up a water hydrant (Fire hydrant " with the key,so get a stand pipe (I take it this tool will turn the water on?) as well,instant water.
    Electricity can be obtained from a street lamp,that only leaves gas.... I am working on that, i have a "Graft" and a pick ,all i need now is a fitting so that i can tap into the supply and be able to turn it off when i leave.
    On second thoughts,suddenly £8-12 on a CL/CS/THS.does seem to be a bargain,don't get me wrong,i will "Hedgebump" with the best of them,getting the cover off you may find,is the easy bit,getting it back on and seated right could be a different game alltogether,going to A,E. with a bad back,could be time consuming LOL.
    Onwards and upwards.(Especially if i get the GAS wrong) LOL.

    The answer lies in zen philosophy....

    Does a bear sh*t in the words? If he does, then best to empty your own waste somewhere else if you don't want to make his acquaintance in passing, hence the need to lift a manhole cover or two

    Personally, plenty of toilets about, and even sites, so I have no need for anything like lifting manhole covers or digging holes in the woods

    Please bear in mind that said manholes are actually Inspection Chambers and at some stage some unfortunate will have to descend into them using the rungs on the side so thoughtfully covered in shit by passing motorhomers:)

    May only apply to deeper ones:)

    Are you suggesting that it might be best to dump the shit on them whilst they are still lurking down the holes doing their "inspection"?

    Probably a good idea, at least the target can't move very far :giggle:
