    I'm sorry, but it's just nonsense. People have been crapping in the woods for thousands of years and as far as I can tell the trees have survived just fine.
    I was just making a funny with the statement.

    This thread is the internet equivalent of that smelly old uncle at the barbecue. No one knows quite why he was invited, maybe it just seemed like the right thing to do, but everyone is regretting it now!

    Carry toilet paper on my pack just for situations like this but using socks isn't out of the question.

    Every ride has a role of TP packed in my gear bag. Not had to emergency use it yet, mainly because I take a poo before I go on endurance rides, but some day...
    Frozen Trails... err

    It depends where you are. If you're in a relatively high traffic area you should bury. Where I ride I have just walked into the woods a 100 feet or so and done it. Nobody is going bushwhacking in there and find it. That's what the critters do.

    I can't believe this thread.
    Was getting off early today to ride at Dupont. Had EVERYTHING packed and ready to rock. It occurred to me, I FORGOT MY SOCKS! No joke. Of course, the first thing I thought of was this thread, LOL!

    But like I said, rule numero uno, always, ALWAYS, carry some TP when going into the woods. So I rode sans socks with no worries. (Had a great ride BTW)

    A big fad these days is the paracord "survival" bracelets. Not sure what they are actually used for in a survival situation, but unless there's TP or a baby wipe woven into that thing it is WAY down the list of necessaries when I'm in the woods!

    So do I but socks would work a lot better than a lot of other options for those non-boy scout types that go out unprepared. That is, unless they had ridden through a lot of mud and muck and the socks were full of heavy grit, dirt and small pebbles. Ouch.

    No just kidding. Drink a cup of coffee and crap before you go and ride.

    Why, you put them back on and continue your ride. What else would you do with them?

    In 1985 I was kayaking the French Broad river near Asheville and had to poop like a madman. I am here to tell you that poison ivy makes excellent tp, but does have some rather unpleasant side effects. Like having to go to the doctor to get a shot in your ass and trying to answer the question "where on your body is the poison ivy?" with a straight face. I'm sure he got quite a chuckle out of that one.

    When we're backpacking, it's easy to pack some camp wipes in the pack since we're carrying 30lb packs anyway. When riding away from any of my normal areas, I'll ziploc some wet wipes in my hydration bag, and put another ziploc bag around that. Also include a small tube of germx. With me being really allergic to poison ivy, I don't take any chances with leaves or oil transfer.

    Trust me, under these circumstances one has most definitely dropped a big, stinking load.

    After 52 years on this planet you learn to not stress the small things [or large],

    And your point is good advice so here's the edit.

    Stop, look, go around in circles and pick a spot, poop, wipe, bury, RIDE.

    If you are carrying paper products just for this eventuality, why not just carry toilet paper?

    I fall into the baby wipe group, and I should point out the other potential uses of these miracles. Not only are they good for wiping hiney, but they also do a fine job of cleaning minor wounds should gravity get the better of you.

    Small travel packs available at SprawlMart for $1. Perfect for backpack, glove compartment, etc.

    Because paper towels are thicker and tougher and more absorbent! Usually one good wipe gets the job done! Plus you can use them to clean up after trailside repair jobs or lunch. Multipurpose.
