Due to the proximity of the latest hurricane and the effects on family and friends to the hosts of this show the first half hour of this show is devoted to the realities of preparedness and in helping others be better prepared.

Building and Types The Latrine Part 2

In this episode of Reality Check, we are continuing with part 2 of building and using a latrine. Our number 1 focus is still on number 2. Everyone knows it by the same name whether latrine, loo, outhouse, head, water closet, privy, potty, or toilet. It is something that we are all going to have to do once it hits the fan. Dealing with human waste is a very touchy subject, but one we all will have to deal with. Ignoring proper bathroom sanitation can lead to disease, sickness, and death.
