We all know you guys can make a knot with it, right? That's how you hold it in for so long....lol

Kidding asides, when you have to go and you're stuck in traffic, there's no escape. Now I figure that the guys can just grab an empty container and...you know. Us ladies...we can't do that. Specially if we're alone in the vehicle/truck and behind the wheel. I know there's a device sold in some natural health stores (Wholefoods) where you can slip it underneath you and pee "standing like a man"...lol but still, probably not that easy when you're behind the wheel and you need to lower your pants.

Also, I wake up a few times at night to go. It keeps me from sleeping if I don't. I don't see myself getting dressed, exiting the truck in the dark of night, walk to the bathroom at the truck stop, come back....you lose a good amount of sleep that way. Is there just enough room in the truck to keep a small portable/compact potty?

I suppose there's Depends®, but I don't know how they hold up for "a few times at night".

Or a 3 lb coffee can and some gallon size zip-lock bags. Gallon size not for the capacity but to fit with the top edge turned over the can lip. Zip lock so you can seal it up between uses.

Use the device in the link. Keep an empty quart size bottle in the truck. Keep a quart size or larger jug of water and a spray bottle of a Clorox bathroom cleaner. Use the water and Clorox bathroom cleaner to rinse and disinfect the device and your pee bottle after you dump it. I would recommend- Rinse-disinfect-rinse.

That's what I used to do, and can no longer do. I find that when I don't drink enough fluids, I do not lose weight as easily, I get really tired, my hands, fingers and feet swell, I get congested even worse, along with many other issues that are much lesser of a problem when I am well hydrated.

LOL!!! Thanks for the cleaning tips! (I know how to clean and disinfect all sorts of things as I am a clean freak!)
