For those of us that drive to our campsites, I found this with a bag and "Poo Powder" work quite well. The times I've been with a group, I took a small outhouse style tent I have to provide privacy.You still have to lug everything out with you, but it's not too bad if you have an external trash bag on your vehicle.
A deft touch is certainly a kind way of describing a WAG bag. That first time is interesting and takes some careful aiming. Carrying it out in your pack is also eye opening, not from the smell or anything but that sh*t is heavy! Getting rid of my WAG bag in the "dump"ster at the end of a trip. One happy guy.
We also studied Carl Jung, who has led me to the following conclusion.--------------------The history of modernity is shallow, and the skills required of modernity are artificial. The collective unconscious (“the Jungian thing”) includes countless generations of interaction with and mastery over nature. It is in those countless generations that our true selves were formed.That is why wilderness pastimes like backpacking and hunting are so important to us. They do not simply pass our time. They reconnect men trapped in modernity with their much more human psychological core (as opposed to the false and superficial selves developed for the modern veneer). Like eating and drawing nutrition from real food instead of the empty calories of processed food, when we interreact with nature, and reaffirm our personal mastery over nature with the skills and successes of backpacking and hunting, we find and refine our deeper and more human selves.

A significant part of my professional background is in Counseling. As an old-timer, we used to study Freud a lot. Old Dr. Sigmund would cock an eye at this thread and say "hummmmmmmmm."

What's next? Will I be able to buy a virtual sleeping bag, put on some virtual goggles, and visit anywhere I want to?
Now back to the poop at hand... This post could be considered to be social poop I guess. Maybe.
What's next? Will I be able to buy a virtual sleeping bag, put on some virtual goggles, and visit anywhere I want to? Maybe hike the Appalachian Trail without ever leaving my house?
