Well, you have my support. What kind of advice do you need? I can't find
the question.

I'm really, really good at packing, though. So I can tell you that
rolling things is easier than folding. If you roll things up, they take
less room, and don't wrinkle so much.

About paying to piss, I'd say pack tp and squat somewhere. Also, wear
squattable clothing.
