    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.

    This works better than burning paper.

    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.

    You can always find soil in the desert, bury that $hit- and burn the paper if possible!

    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've got a reality show in the works where I go out into the woods with my hillbilly friends. Hijinks and hilarity ensues. We end up crapping in the woods a lot due to the overconsumption of alcohol and fatty meat. Stay tuned...

    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....

    If it feels like it'll be a loose one, just let it go. Natural chamois cream.
