Pooping on the Trail

:shock:

I've been lucky enough to always have my trowel with me and not having to use it so far. But this article from Backpacker has me wondering, since I have seen toilet paper decorating the trail before. Pack it out? Put it in a cat hole? Wait until you hit a privy? :lol:

Sorry for the gross but entirely human hiker topic.

Digging a cat hole in that soil is a challenge in itself, but I pack it to an outhouse then flush the ziplock bag (wash it out)
