      I'd agree here, as urine should have no bacteria in it whatsoever except
      what it's picked up from the air around it after it left your body. If it's
      got bacteria before it left your body then you've got a problem, therefore
      it should not be a health concern for anybody. If you think people will be
      grossed out by it take a piece of fabric to cover it over. or, as kitty
      litter is out wad up some paper towels to line the bottom I've been told by
      an ACW re-enactor who regularly uses a chamber pot when at events that this
      also muffles the sound if you're sharing a tent or another tent is right
      next door (as I'm sure you know sound is barely muffled at all by tent
