I've no problem commenting. There's simply nothing else to do but pack it out...If you bury it the animals will dig it right up and when you're hiking they'll be poopy TP strewn all over the desert. Nice!  :vomit:

I've seen it first hand...

TP, followed by a Wet Wipe, into a knot-a-bag. Then pack it out.

One trash bag to keep it all, and in the darkness... lol

One designated double hefty to put the doo crumbs in and throw away later. Course, keep that inside a rubbermaid container.
