There Are 5 Nice And Simple Steps To Pooping In The Woods

Obviously, we all know how to poop, or at least you would think that. So step 4 below is already pretty much covered.

  1. Take 70 BIG steps off the trail
  2. Pick a location
  3. Dig your cathole
  4. Do your business into the hole
  5. Cover the hole

Let's Be Real...

If you're taking a scenic walk through the woods and feel the rumble in your belly indicating it is time to go, 70 steps seem to be excessive. If you REALLY have to go, good luck making them big steps. However, this is what they ask so you're nowhere near any other people using the trail when you poop.

It also is completely understandable that a hole should be dug when you need to go, one of the many reasons is because it just makes it less obvious you were there doing business. Also, because this is human waste we're talking about here. In the case of having to go, digging a hole may be a pretty difficult task.
