Actually there is a book that deals with this very topic.  It is called "How
to Shit in the Woods" by Kathleen Meyer.  There is also a version of the
book that has "non-offensive cover".


You can find it at this link, and no...I don't work for Amazon.com...unless
they want to hire me.  He He


On a different rant....One thing that really irked me was people using soap
in the mountains.  I think that biodegradeable stuff should not be sold, or
at least marketed in a different fashion.  Too many people read the label
and see that it is biodegradeable, "Oh so that means I can just wash with it
in the stream".  No No No.  It seems like people don't read the directions,
the stuff is worthless unless you bury it a foot deep in the ground!  You
would not believe how many soapsuds I found pooled up in the lakes of the
Sierras.  It was pretty sad.
