photo: this is the wrong technique
1) Find a huge rock or tree without sticky sap on it that can support your weight. Stay at least 100 feet or more from water sources.
2) Dig a hole about a foot deep near the base of the tree or boulder.
3) Find a stick bigger than a pencil and place it near your dump zone. This will come in handy if you have accuracy problems.
4) Drop your drawers.
5) Place your roll of TP in the crotch of your now open pants, between your undies and pants.
6) Face the tree, grab it, and use it to balance and support your weight while you squat. If you are coordinated and have the right spot, you can also lean back against the tree to help maintain a confident seated position.
7) Grunt. Think about baseball.
8) Wiping: don’t try to wipe while squatting or holding the tree. This can have disastrous results. Step aside, arch thy back and reach around to wipe. Try to minimize TP with careful pre- and post-wipe folding.
9) Tuck the soiled TP into the dump hole, being careful to keep those fingers out of the bung.
10) If you had an accuracy problem, use the stick to corral the turds into the hole, on top of the TP.
11) Cover the turds in the hole with your dirt.
12) Place a rock or log over your well-covered danger zone. It goes without saying that if another hiker wants to roll over a rock or log in an attempt to find themselves a suitable backcountry dump spot, they can’t get incredulous about what they find. It was, after all, under a rock.
