Kitty Litter On The Road
It's interesting to read your post doug, because I was just wondering if with this Bokashi system, I'd been "taken" once again since it has "proprietary" ingredients. (i.e., did I really pay that much for a couple containers, and what looks like apple cider vinegar and sawdust?) Though, it's here, and I set up the litter box and will see how it step at a time.
So while camping, people pick up after their pets too like they're supposed to in the city and suburbs, and place it the trash receptacles to be sent to landfills or incinerators?

Not all do and even those that do, not all the time! But they should.

Let's face it, if you're out in the bush or the desert and the dog poops on the trail then it needs to be picked up and at least thrown off trail (no bag pleeeease) in to the bush. If the dog heads out in to the bush and does his/her business then no need to go to try to identify it amongst deer/moose/coyote poop.

Inside a campsite, whether it's boondocking or front country campground, then yes, pick the darn stuff up. The campsite needs to be thought of as your home, however temporary that may be. And there's always going to be a next 'tenant' who doesn't want to have to deal with your mess, no matter the source.
Worry is a misuse of imagination!

Gardenias, since you already have the system, I was looking around online and the following link tells how to make your own inoculant (probably best made when you aren't actually traveling):

It looks fairly simple (easy for me to say), but time is also an ingredient.

TrainChaser, I'd been meaning to thank you for taking the time to find and post the link to the recipes (and other helpful info!).
My cat finally used the top entry litter box instead of the toilet, which added to my work schedule...sigh...I'd been pretty spoiled! ...though I feel good doing my environmental part.

I had previously posted the following on another thread.

I had to suspend the Bokashi Fermentation experiment (composting cat feces). I couldn't keep up with the litter box upkeep (I don't know how people do it!). I was planning to shred the paper clutter in the house and convert it to litter, and hadn't even started that project. So for now, she continues to use the toilet until I can catch up.

I disagree that the anaerobic process is odor-free. It has a distinctive odor that I find nauseating. Though, maybe I'm doing something wrong.

My turn came up at the library for the Humanure Handbook; and I'm learning lots. (Wow...are we making a mess of our planet!)

any chance you have a link to that book?

Humanure Handbook, free to read online:

Great book, but not suitable for van or RV living.

don't forget...

you're the human, and you're in control (or should be!!)

FYI pissing on a cat works wonders.

And then I had to settle for a super soaker when store ran out of squirt guns.

Great training tools, both!

Wait a minute. To make it taste bad? You mean it tastes GOOD? How much worse can poo taste? LOL
