I realized last night that I left out one of the best parts of the Fisher Peak hike! I found a new product that will change my hiking/snowshoeing life forever! I used it for the first time while climbing Fisher Peak and I’m not entirely sure how I have survived this long without it. But I know now that it will forever be my hiking companion.
My friends, I introduce to you…the Shewee!
That’s right, it’s a portable urinating device for woman. I can pee like a man! No more squatting. No more squatting incorrectly and ending up with soaked pants. No more having to expose myself completely just because I have to pee. No more cold bum in the winter. No more do I feel the need to hold it as long as humanly possible just so I don’t have to put myself in these situations. From now on I am free to pee whenever and wherever I please!!! Ok, so there might be some restrictions on that…but still. I’m free!
I definitely took full advantage of this on our hike. I peed. I peed a lot. And I giggled every time I did it. My husband just gave me the raised eyebrows. Of course he’s never had to squat to pee so he doesn’t understand how incredibly amazing this is. Perhaps that was why I was in such a good mood throughout the hike? I wasn’t trying to hike with a painfully full bladder? Hmmm…something to think about.
Ok, so I must confess, my urinating device wasn’t actually a Shewee. Mine is called the Freshette. And I love it. But come on…how much better is the name Shewee?! If you see two similar products sitting side by side and one was called “Freshette” and one was called “Shewee” wouldn’t you totally go for Shewee?? I would. But unfortunately my husband picked it up for me. *sigh* Ok, ok, he still gets major props for picking up a feminine urinating director all by himself. He actually picked it up as a gag gift last Christmas for our family gift exchange but that’s not the point. The point is, it’s an awesome device and if you are a woman and do any kind of hiking, you need this. Now I just need to practice writing my name in the snow 😉
