"That seems to be the way things work now days when dealing with the government agencies. This is one of the things that happen when there is a lack of staffing or government shut downs."

I deal with the BLM and forest service a lot. I find it's not just now-a-days but it's been like this for a long time, like around 40 years. I think it has more to do with no one wants to take the responsibility for saying yes. it is much safer for them to say no. if they tell you it's ok to do something but their boss doesn't like it they get in trouble but if they tell you no there is no recourse for you. you can't sue them for saying no even if they were wrong.

If one needs to make an inexpensive macerator, just find an old garbage disposal unit.  Shy
Having stayed at the same camp at La Posa south it most definitely depends on what ranger you get.  I was told it couldn't be a porta potty, composting toilet, etc.  It had to be at least 10 gallons and permanently installed.  NOTHING could be dumped in the pit toilets.

And no, they don't inspect vehicles.  However, you can bet that if they ever caught you dumping your waste somewhere or dropping a dooky in the wash you could get a personal escort out if a ranger was so inclined.

If I remember correctly that pic above of the macerator was from Jake Von Slatt's Steampunk Workshop for the schoolie he converted for the family to camp in.
Headache... you had it correct about Jake and the home made macerator. As soon as I found it, I made one and it worked great.  Smile
