How To Shit In The Woods has been warmly embraced by the outdoor community as the "backpacker's bible" for three decades. Now in this fourth iteration, Kathleen Meyer continues to pioneer graceful backcountry elimination and responsible human waste disposal.
Geared to off-the-grid sojourners of every stripe, this updated edition features the latest innovations - from high-tech to DIY - for "packing-it-out", a practice begun voluntarily but now increasingly mandated in areas with heavy foot traffic and fragile ecosystems. Find also the most current procedures to safeguard against the health risks associated with drinking straight from wilderness waterways, tips for eco-purists swearing off t.p., and a wealth of approaches for women questing forth from the loo.
With its mighty punch of information, How To Shit In The Woods answers the anguished cry from Nature over our ever-shrinking wilds, and supplies essential (often hilarious) instructions for anyone pausing at the edge of adventure to ponder, "Where do I go to go?"
