Prêt-à-Porta Potty

The Andy Gump, Squat Palace, Porta Potty, Temp Toilet, Port-a-Loo … whatever you decide to call it, half a million people are going to relieve themselves at the Balloon Fiesta. What a horrifying thought. Please don't think about it, but prepare to be Porta-safe with these helpful hints:

Make sure your purse or backpack is on your person. You can't always count on a hook or clean place to hang your precious belongings in these plastic prisons, and the last thing you want is to drop anything on the floor. If you do, try not to think about it.

Carry tissues or back-up paper of your choice (preferably not this copy of the Alibi). The Fiesta crew does a great job of keeping up, but let's face it: Keeping that many people in toilet paper presents understandable challenges.  

Baby wipes are not just for babies, either. Pick some up—and by “pick some up,” I mean buy some fresh ones at the store.
