    PortaJohn status.

    Probably 6-7 times in the hour before a national event.

    3 for local.

    I can wait if it's just training.

    This got me back to thinking of when I raced Moto GP. Ratio was about the same.

    Some of the road stuff it was all about timing. When the promoter was skimping and you had 4-6 units you knew the 15m before the race the lines would form so you'd time it at 17-18m.

    It's all about the details.

    Best/worst stories?

    A friend dropped his new smartphone in a portaloo... and retrieved it (it was right at the beginning of the event).

    We've got a huge road fun-ride that happens here ever year - 35 000 people, that they send off in groups every 3 min from ~6:30 am - 10am.. Lots of people waiting about in pens, lots of portaloos.
    About 5 years ago, we had a storm blowing in, with winds gusting over gale force.
    I'm sure you can see where this is going. One of the loos blew over with a guy inside it. O_O

    How's your new phone? Does it have Bluethooth?

    Yup! It also has Blue Juice! Sort of disappointed with it tho. Piss poor reception, audio is sort of fuzzy and the shape of the handset is kinda chunky.
