Long convoys, long flights.  It's simple, it works, and for safety: it helps maintain proper hydration.


And in a Charlie Foxtrot, it helps to re-hydrate again!  >:D

Gatorade provides multipurpose bottles for this purpose.  Hydration first, then re-used for... umm... un-hydration?


Not a recommended practice when you have both sexes in the plane. Keep it zipped up.  ;)

Forget fuel reserve my bladder reserve can't come close to competing.

I don't recommend the lemon-lime flavor.

Actually...I have used a Gatorade bottle on long convoys. Wider opening was/is a plus. I also seem to recall some time ago Flying Pig suggested a Clorox bottle filled with Kitty Litter

it's not a preferred practice regardless of who's in the plane; that's not the point.  Among adults, there's courtesy, professionalism, and necessity.  If/when you're in that situation, everyone else looks somewhere else.

Mission and safety (hydration) are first.  Whether I'm in a convoy or on a glacier with three rope teams, both genders just show some professionalism, turn away, and admire the sunrise / crevasse / stars.

Back to CAP... this is nothing that should be done with cadets present, but why would cadets be on a 4+ hour flight? 

Gatorade bottles are easier for the men, of course.  No argument there that guys have it easy.

You underestimate the skills and determination of our female service members. They've put way more thought into this then you ever will.

There are devices/appliances that women can use quite efficiently for said purpose.

When I have been faced with the Gatorade bottle situation (only twice as I recall), I draped a jacket over my head and nether area, did my thing, and got about business.
