And of course, there is an emoji appropriate for this topic.

Reading through a few of these threads this one caught my attention  and sort of wish it had not. However as wonderful as BBNP and in fact all of our out doors areas are they are out  of doors wilderness not kitchens pristine chapels or someone's living room.

Human waste like animal waste is biodegradable with speed of degradation  according to climate conditions. Toilet paper is too. So common sense and a small ET of some sort isn't that much weight. It is also a heck of a lot more sanitary than carrying around a soiled towel or using your hand. In all candor that is simply disgusting, unsanitary and completely unnecessary.

Simply employing common sense, exercising some measure of consideration and perhaps a little training or conditioning this issue is quite minor.

That's the spirit!  Sounds like between no camp fires and carrying out your used TP, you're up for a desert adventure that will expand your comfort zone.   :great:

Yes a hike in the desert is absolutely on the docket, because I've never done one of those before except one of the "High Desert" areas in Idaho, on a hunt of course.

This.Thread.is.Hila rious! I'm glad it renewed for two reasons.

One, so I can share my disgusting story.
I hiked up to SW3 on 8/18. Morning of 8/19 I hiked out to the rim then continued on down BC for a full day. Circled back around to SW3 via Colima and SW Rim trail that evening. and between SW2 and SW3 saw 4 pieces of toilet paper and two King Kong turds right there on the edge of the trail not 15 minutes from a latrine. I couldn't believe it. They were not there the night before. I did the right thing and picked up the smeared tp in the "leave it better than you found it" trash bag that I always try to carry on my pack. But, GROSSSS!

I also picked up a cig butt on the BC trail. Meanwhile, there are signs everywhere of high fire danger. Never ceases to amaze me...

Oh, and two - a non-stick gauze pad in the rear area on hikes is very helpful/preventative.

I'm just now catching up on some of the stuff I missed this summer. Lance's original post was before my time, so I've never seen it before until now. I just had the best laugh I've had all summer. I'm STILL laughing!
