Just in Time!

Just in time for tomorrow morning's bowhunting deer opener, my Go Girl arrived in today's mail.
I believe this may mark a turning point in the enjoyment of my morning mug of coffee AND participation in outdoor activities; plus no more risk of squatting too close to treacherous poison ivy or prickly gooseberry bushes in the woods. I wonder if they're thinking about making a camouflage version??

Omigod, Ruthie, I can't believe you made this post!!! I am laughing so hard! I am also wondering how many people are saying, "Huh?" "What the . . . ?" Too funny!

P.S. The one my husband bought me years ago had a long tube attached to the end. I'm not sure that was an advantage . . . just more to fold up and carry.

LOL! I love it. Let me know how it works as I've been tempted to order one. Camo ;-)

Birdsong said...

LOL, let me know how that works for you! I have opted to just look carefully... my pack's always too heavy already, and I would probably accidentally leave the thing next to a tree:)

I'm glad it showed up in time for tomorrow!!
I expect you'll share the details on how ell it works.

Alrighty, then...

Richard said...

A long tube down the pant leg and your all set. LOL...don't forget to "shake a leg"...:-)

I can't believe they sent directions on how to use this, they must think females are stupid. I couldn't write until I was done laughing at this ingenious idea. What a HOOT! It sure beats climbing up and down the tree. Too funny but necessary. LOL LOL LOL.

Hubby and I saw a segment on the news about this gadget! How inventive!!! And needed!! You GO GIRL! :c)

Hi Mama Pea,
A longer "nozzle end" on this Go Girl would certainly be an advantage! And eye/hand coordination is definitely needed too......

Hi Gaelyn,
I'm going to need a lot more practice!

Hi Birdsong,
I can see where the Go Girl would definitely be advantageous in some situations, but until I get more practice, the previous method still seems better (even with the risk of poison ivy)!

Well Lynne, it's definitely tricky, but so far I haven't peed on my clothes......

Hey Donna, where's your adventuresome, outdoorswoman spirit? I've wanted one of these for years! ;-)

Hi Richard,
Actually I need to figure out how to use this with a bottle -- on account of I don't want to leave my "scent" in the deer hunting woods!

Seriously Mom, it's kinda tricky! And if you don't have it in just the right spot, there are unpleasant consequences!

Hi Jayne,
My goal is being able to "write my name" in the snow this winter! :-D

Ruthie, how was hunting today?

Mary said...

Ok, I can't wait to hear your review of this gadget. I have NEVER heard of anything LIKE IT!

LOL!!!!!!!

Kelly said...

OMG.....I'm laughing.....it's about time we have something like that! I'm with Mary...I can't wait to hear your review.

Penelope said...

Funny!

I tried to accept your Facebook friend request, but Facebook is having some issues, so I think we are in friend-limbo for the time being.

I need to hear your review...I need something like this for when I'm at the farm...no facilities.

Regal used to have something like this in their catalogue marketed as a John and Jane (a container for each sex) I used to think I needed to order one when I had a Home Care route in the country. Here is a link to it (very inexpensive) but I have no personal review.

Hi Cindy,
No deer on opening day but it was sure a pretty morning. I'm waiting now until the weather cools down a bit.

Well, Mary and Kelly, no review yet, but let me tell you I definitely need some more practice, because I found out there are some definite inflow and outflow discrepancies that I won't go into detail on here!

Hi Penny,
I was having some FB issues today also--I'm glad to hear it wasn't just me!

Hi Cindie,
No final review yet, but let me tell you this--I still needed to drop my pants, so modesty is still an issue and tall corn rows are definitely necessary.

Thanks for the link Ruth. There are lots of interesting products there in addition to John & Jane!

Heidi said...

LOL! Sounds like a different product might be better. It is intriguing, but carrying around something extra when you still have to pull down your pants doesn't seem better.

RuthieJ said...

Heidi -- exactly what I was thinking! Maybe I'll change my opinion with a little more practice, but if not, at least it wasn't a huge $$ investment.
