I would guess that almost every diaper lover has worn or at least thought about wearing diapers while traveling. The concept of it is awesome. Not only is it comfortable but it is also practical. Theoretically, it would mean half as many stops on a really long trip. Essentially the times that you would need to stop for bathroom breaks would alternate between not stopping and just using the diaper and actually stopping to change. Of course the dream rarely becomes reality. I have traveled in diapers a few time but I have not really been able to wet while on the road. I cannot recall a time that I have worn them when I was not driving so I think that at least partially the need to focus on driving prevents me from wetting the diaper.
The first time that I can remember wearing a diaper while traveling was shortly after I got married. My wife is notorious for having to pee a lot and traveling was no exception. I made the drive to and from our home town several times before we were married. Each time that I did it by myself, I drove straight through. Once I was married, I was forced to stop several times per trip since my wife had to pee. One time when talking about it with my in-laws they jokingly said that I should put her in diapers while we travel. That was not a new thought to me and of course I loved the idea. I never brought it up to my wife before that since she would just ignore it and say that I only wanted that since I was a diaper lover. Once my in-laws had said it to both of us, I mentioned it to my wife as a serious suggestion. She turned down the idea once or twice but finally gave in one time. Right before we left my in-laws house, we went upstairs and she put on a Tena pull-on diaper. She decided that if she had to wear one, then I had to as well. I certainly was not going to turn that down. We both said goodbye to my in-laws while wearing diapers. The diapers were quiet and well covered so I do not think that they had any clue. On the drive home my wife had to pee as usual. However, she had a hard time peeing and got to the point where she had to pee so bad that it made things tougher to go in a diaper. We ended up stopping as usual that night. She never tried to wear diapers on a trip again.
The next occasion that I remember wearing diapers while traveling was when my first nephew was born. It was the first of the next generation so everyone in the family was really excited. We got the call in the middle of the night that he was born. Since we lived away from my family we had to travel to see them. After getting the call my wife and I decided that we were too excited to go back to sleep and that we would rather drive back to our home town that night rather than get up the next morning. I had worn a diaper to bed that night obviously not having planned to travel in the middle of the night. I asked my wife what she wanted me to do about the diaper that I was wearing. She said that I should just leave it on for most of the trip with underwear over it and take it off at our last bathroom stop before getting home. I drove most of the way home while wearing it. I tried to wet it while I was driving but I had no success. I did not get to wet it until we stopped at the last stop and I was going to take it off. Once I was able to stand still I easily wet the diaper. Unfortunately I had to take it off right away so that we could keep traveling. The bathroom as the gas station that we stopped at was a single person bathroom. I did not have to worry about taking it off and then walking to the trashcan with a dirty diaper while other people were around.
On another occasion, I was helping a friend with a big move. They were moving to our area and the cheapest option for them was to rent the truck locally and have it make a round trip. Since they needed help to load anyway, I volunteered to pick up the truck and drive 5 hours to help them move. In the same day, we were making the return trip. Since I was already going to be on the road a while, I wanted to make the trip as quick as possible. My plan was to try to cut out at least one possibly 2 stops by wearing a diaper with underwear over it. When I was close, I planned to stop and take off the diaper. Once again when it came time to pee I could not because of being too focused on driving. I ended up driving almost the whole way to my destination without peeing. I reached the point where I planned to stop anyway and got out of the truck. As soon as I got out, I was able to pee. I walked into the bathroom and then into the stall. Unlike before, this bathroom was more public. While I was in the stall there was at least one other person in the bathroom. There was almost no way that they did not hear me undoing the tapes. By the time that I had the diaper off the other guy in the bathroom had left. I left the stall and headed for the bathroom. I remember that there was another guy in the bathroom by that time but I do not think that he saw me holding the diaper. I comforted myself with the thought that who cares if he did since I will never see him again anyway.
The final and most recent time that I wore diapers while traveling was on a recent trip home. We were traveling late at night and before we left my wife decided to diaper me. The people that we were staying with were going to be asleep by the time we arrived so I was able to leave the diaper on for the whole trip and wear it to bed that night. Since I was going to wear it that night and we tend not to pack diapers when we are staying with people I needed to keep that diaper dry. When we stopped for a food and bathroom break, I undid one of the tapes and used a urinal. While I was peeing another guy walked in the bathroom. When I went to refasten the tape I froze for a second since I knew that the other guy would be able to hear. I quickly got over it and just refastened the tape.
On the way home from that trip I asked my wife if I could wear that diaper again since I still had not wet it and it was still usable. She agreed to let me do so. I got it out of our luggage and tucked it under my sweatshirt. It was an Abena X-Plus Air. They are thick diapers to begin with and since this one had been worn before it was not neatly folding and therefore did not lay very flat. On my trip to the bathroom there was an odd bulge in my sweatshirt. No one seemed to look at me so I do not think that anyone noticed. I went into the stall and undid the tapes. They were definitely audible and a few other people were in the bathroom at the time. By the time that I got the diaper on and I was situated, anyone that was in the bathroom had left and was leaving the store. Once again, I had to convince myself not to care since I did not know any of them and would probably never encounter them again in my life. While on the drive home I really had to pee. I tried very hard to pee in the diaper but I was still unsuccessful. I truly think it is because I cannot relax enough because I have to focus on driving. When I got home as soon as I got out of the car I was able to pee. I wet the diaper and then proceeded to unload the car while wearing the wet diaper.
I wish that I had trained myself to be able to wet on command despite the circumstances but I still have not gotten there yet. Hopefully it will come with time and experience and one day in the future wearing diapers while traveling will be both comfortable and practical.
