New Zealand Peein', Gillespie Pass Circuit

The River Crossing Towards Young's Hut - Gillespie Pass Circuit - Mt. Aspiring National Park, New Zealand
Like Kepler, Gillespie Pass was another stunning two night adventure in the New Zealand wild.  There are several huts up the valley that offer refuge, with little use in the fall.  The trail can either be accessed by jet boat, helicopter, plane, or a good old fashioned river crossing.  Being the cheapskates we are the river crossing was the most sensible.  The trail runs along the Young river outlet towards the first hut.  The trail is what New Zealand DOC considers "bush," but is very well marked and used. 
Nice Basin for a Nice Pee - Bottom of Gillespie Pass - Gillespie Pass Circuit- Mt. Aspiring National Park, New Zealand
After a night in the hut it was off to the basin under Gillespie Pass.  Waterfalls and amazing rock formations, offered some of the best views for the day.  There is no need for the use of water filters in New Zealand, which makes peeing that much more enjoyable... knowing that it is a straight glacial piss.  Gillespie pass was another story, that if unprepared would have some people peeing their pants.  Angles of 60 degrees or more the whole way up made this summit in many ways more grueling than Colorado's 14ers.

The hard work payed off with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. Overall a great backpacking route. Offering amazing views and a great trail make this an amazing place to relieve ones self.

New Zealand Peein', Kepler Track

Peein' at the point - Kepler Track - Near Te Anau, New Zealand
New Zealand offers some of the best scenery in the world, and with that some of the best pees to be had.  The Kepler Track is one of New Zealand's "Great Walks," and offers a 60km loop that can easily be done in two nights.  Packing some local IPA bombers to the huts gave fuel to some of the most stunning pisses in the history of human existence.

Peein' on the Petit Grepon

On top of the Petit Grepon in Rocky Mountain National Park. A great place to take a pee. The Petit can be seen in the picture below. To approach this climb hike to Sky Pond and you will see it uphill to the right. This particular piss was fueled by tap water from Boulder that was put into Nalgenes and carried up the entire climb.

Pee Spot from the Blog Top

Clear water at Kuraman Island - Sabah, Malaysia
If ever in Malaysia, Kuraman Island offers several amazing peeing spots.  Located off of Labuan, the island is part of a marine park that is nearly abandoned.  Water taxis are cheap and the water is amazingly clear.  Making the island perfect for a day of snorkeling and soaking up the sun.  This specific pee was fueled by San Miguel and Tiger, two of the most common beers on the area.

Peein' Towards Dem Tetons

Peeing in the Big Hole Range - Horseshoe Trail system - Idaho
Teton Valley, Idaho has tons of great hiking/MTB trails which offer some of the most scenic peeing spots in the Midwest.  Following this, the bladder was replenished with a couple Double Bitch Creek pints from Teton Brewing.
