Larry, I was at the FQ Festival last year and there were a lot of 
port-a-potties for the event, at least in the river area where I was, 
reasonably clean and with reasonable wait times. I've got a bladder 
problem (enough of that) so I scouted them. There are also facilities 
in the Mint, of course. I believe that the festival guide/map actually 
included the potty sites, so I've yet to go on Depends.--Charlie Suhor
