My husband put a pail,an ordinary mop-pail/or mop-bucket in the trunk of the car, and a couple rolls of toilet tissue in case we have to stop for me to have D on a non-restroom road. But usually mine is so urgent I don't have time to drive around looking for a restroom. I could never make a long trip. Just an hour, or 30 minutes sometimes is too much for me. I can feel every bump in the road and seems like my intestines are jiggling when my husband hits a bump in the road. I think taking Lomotil and doing a jello/broth sort of diet for the 24 hours before you leave would help. My doctor told me to do that before I had my stool test, and the next morning I couldn't have a stool, so I had to wait until the next morning to get a stool sample to the hospital. I didn't have much to eat. I know I had different kinds of jello cups - strawberry and orange and other flavors, vitamin water, and clear soups. Mostly I just ate the jello when I got hungry and drank the water, because I'm don't like clear soups. Hope this works for you, it worked great for me, and I was having severe diarrhea at the time- 15 to 20 times a day.
