    So you're in the woods...

    And yeah, you have to poop. Lol, that's my biggest fear. Hasn't happened yet but I'm prepared. What do you guys do when you're 25 miles away from a bathroom?

    Find an area away from the trail and surface water, dig a 6" hole, burn paper in hole (unless high fire danger), bury, ride. If you are in the desert correct protocol is to spread on surface for UV to take care of. No big deal and certainly nothing to worry over.

    Yes, it will decompose quicker that way. But only if you know what you are doing so you don't start a fire. If in doubt, just bury the paper without burning!

    I've made a living out of crapping in the woods - both camping and riding. No big deal.

    I'd much rather have a crap attack in the woods where there is nobody around than having an attack riding in an urban area. If you've never crapped in the woods before, oh boy are you missing out!

    Just had this happen on a ride in Moab. If you're riding in the desert o highly recommend bringing toilet paper. Saige bush hurts a little and is the softest thing you'll find. And like dirttrackin said you're missing out, it's a whole new level of comfort.

    I keep a travel pack of baby wipes and a plastic grocery bag in my Osprey just for this reason. Pack it in, pack it out. (not the sh*t though, I bury that)

    The best protocol is actually to wag bag it. However, if you are not packing it out, it will degrade much faster above ground in the arid desert than in soil thanks to heat an UV. Ideally you want to spread it very thin on a rock. Obviously you want to do this well away from high use areas. If it's a regularly used area and ample soil, I still bury, but very shallow so it is still exposed to heat from the sun.

    I have to assume that you weren't really serious with this question because there is only one answer: pop a squat and ride on brother. HOWEVER:

    the fact that you said you were prepared has me wondering....

    They are quick and elusive, but it helps increase riding speed when you're trying to catch one.

    This is something I don't really understand. We have to bury our poo to protect the environment yet said environment is full of deer, bears, birds and goodness knows what else that crap in it all the time! How come they don't need to bury theirs??

    It's because they don't eat at Wendy's or Burger King.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    How do you know? I thought bears pulled that stuff out of bins ll the time and I know birds will eat whatever they find.

    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.

    You've apparently never hiked a trail popular with hikers who, like you, refuse to bury their waste. The smell is unpleasant to say the least, and defecating too near a water source will contaminate said water source with bacterial runoff. This is a problem of numbers, not just one dude taking a dump at a comfy vee tree.

    Also note that many animals do bury their feces (many felines). Some animals display it prominently to mark their territory. Raccoons, for example, which happen to transmit a particular type of roundworm in their feces that burrows into your eyes and can eventually kill you if left untreated. Yay!

    Also note that disposal methods depend on the environment. Burying it in the desert does nothing but petrify it. Smearing it on a rock is actually a better choice. The busiest places will REQUIRE you to pack it out. Talk about pleasant. Digging a hole a good distance from water is hardly going to ruin anyone's day.

    And a lot more don't? Ok, if you're on a busy trail and can't walk off it very far then fair enough, but where I live there are not that many people in the very big woods for this to be any kind of problem. If you walked a reasonable distance off the trail it would be pretty unlikely that someone else was going to walk onto the very same spot any time soon.

    And rub your poo in their eyes.

    I sprayed some chunky chilli looking stuff down the side of a big slanted rock in a dry creek bed earlier this year while in the middle of nowhere on a ride. I can supply the GPS coordinates if you'd like take a tour of my fine art work.

    At the trail centre yesterday I started off down a steep decent and as I slid back to get off the back of the saddle my shorts caught on the nose and I was stuck! ;0) Didn't come off but stopped as soon as I could and pulled my shorts up.

    Taking a poop in the woods is much better than crapping yourself during a ride. Find a nice secluded spot, do your thing, clean yourself up with some leaves and finish your ride in comfort. I've had to do it a few times and it sure makes the rest of the ride better.

    You've really NEVER had to take a woodsdump? Hard for me to imagine.
    No big deal.
    Forget the politics. Here in the South East, dig a little cathole, drop your paper into the hole along with your, uh, "deposit". Cover it up and move on with life. It's will be gone in short order.

    Two important things:
    1. Don't use leaves, period.
    2. Always carry some tp, paper towels, etc. Don't get caught having to use one of your socks.
    3. Baby wipes are Da Bomb! Use "flushable" wipes which are biodegradeable.
    4. If you feel you MUST pack it out, or need to satisfy your green weenie riding partners who fear causing an environmental holocaust with a dump, always pack a sandwich baggie to seal up the paper. (My poop ain't coming out. Some greenie wants it out, he can pick it up)

    Okay, so that's 4 important things.

    Oh, and as suggested, move the heck away from the trails or any water source. NOBODY wants to see where you did your business, and our water has enough nasties in it already.

    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...
    I drive more when the streets need repairs! -'95 ZJ

    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.

    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.
    The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning, you didn't even think to ask

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

    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.

    Baby wipes are too heavy. Dry paper towels weigh nothing and you can always wet them with a squirt from your camel bak.

    Umm some toilet paper works wonders. In fact that's what it was invented for. Paper towels were invented to clean things other than human flesh. And why do you need water in a sh!t event. Wipe, look at paper, wipe, look at paper, wipe, look at paper until there are no more racing stripes and you're good to go. Shower when you get home and launder your ride wear.

    I know I can not be the only person on here from the bush.

    I would like to be out in the bush when some fancy pants city boy needs to go poo. Walking all this way and that doing the arched back **** dance and too stupid to just drop one where they stand. That would be a funny sight. Then if city did build up the courage my big hllbilly ass would figure something out to chase them out of the bush, scare them so bad they do not **** for a week, sorry I mean poo for you city folk.

    Come ride with me, you can pop a squat right next to me when I need to go, warning though, I do not poo, I give birth to a man size ****. The kind of thing that would chase a construction worker out of a port a jon.

    **** in the bush courses start next week for those interested.

    Go to walmart and buy RV/marine toilet paper. It is specifically designed to break down and decompose when wet. Throw it in the hole with the brown waste and then pee on it. Or a little camelback water it you cannot work up a tinkle.

    If your ass is so sensitive that you need toilet paper then that's what you should use then.

    No. It is when you see an expanse of forest or alpine meadow or whatever where you see widespread toilet paper strewn across the ground from insufficiently dug catholes. Biodegradable tp is not a bad idea.

    So you're in the woods...

    I think it's pretty much official.
    I'm pooping while reading this. Not in the woods though. Sometimes the way I ride could be compared to sh!tting in the woods. Best if nobody sees it.

    How to **** in the Woods, 3rd Edition: An Environmentally Sound Approach to a Lost Art: Kathleen Meyer: 9781580083638: Amazon.com: Books

    How the author calls this a "lost art" is beyond me.

    I've had to do this a few times now this year!
    Advancing age and all day rides I guess. Friend has this trowel which I borrowed & it works well. It's a little heavy though.
    Yes, you weight weenies, there are Ti cathole trowels out there that you can buy.
    I ended up picking up a Fiskars composite one (no, its not carbon) which is pretty light and ended up having to use it last week in Whistler. Yes, BC, I enriched your land!

    I built a trail once that ended up being named 'Sock Puppet'...guess why?


    Also, I have some pretty amusing video of riding buddies swearing wildly at me while they try to find a little privacy to crap in the woods.
