I don't believe that is true. Any intermediate *ahem* resting place is an MSD.

On Auspicious, electric toilet that can flush with fresh or raw water and a 40 gallon holding tank. That lasts us (2 people) 5 - 7 days. Most of the time we run through an Electroscan and are rarely in a NDZ long enough to fill the holding tank. Holding tank gravity dumps outside the 3-mile limit.
