How to Defecate Outdoors
You were invited to go camping, and sleep under a tent under the sky and stars. It sounds like it would be great fun, but you wonder what to do when you have to use the bathroom, and there is no bathroom? Well, learning to "poop in the woods" should not stop you from enjoying the great outdoors.
Going to the Bathroom in the Forest
Decide what you will do about toilet paper before leaving home.If you insist on having it, be warned you will have to carry the used paper out with you, preferably double-bagged. A more environmentally-friendly method is to use "natural toilet paper" - leaves, sticks, etc.
Inform someone when you are going to go.This way, they can look out for you, and if you do not return after a short time, they will look for you to make sure you are safe.
Head out into the forest.Go far enough so that people can no longer see you. If it is dark, do not wander too far from your camp, ask someone to accompany you, and always take a flashlight with you. Find a placeat least100 feet (30 meters) from camp and the trail, and 200 feet (60 meters) from water sources.
Preparing your location.Once you reach a desired place, grab a stick (or bring a small shovel) and dig a holeno more than6 inches (15.2 cm) deep (the bacteria that properly break down this waste don't live deeper than that). This hole will function the same as an outhouse hole.
Do your business in the hole.Don't forget to take care of the paperwork.
Use a stick to stir some soil into your dropping.This way the soil bacteria can break down the droppings more quickly. Then completely cover the material you deposited in the hole with dirt.
Place the dirty paper, if you used it, in a zip-lock freezer bag.This way you can pack it out in a sanitary and odor free way.
Head back to camp.Wash and sanitize your hands.
Doing Your Business in Winter or Alpine Conditions
Do not defecate in the snow.When the snow melts someone else will find your "present", as well as there is a possibility that the run-off, mixed with feces, will contaminate a water source.
Walk until you find dirt.Alternatively, pack it out in a sanitary fashion(for example, double-bagged with kitty litter, or in a poop-tube).
- If you are camping on a glacier, find a small, deep crevasse.
Going in Desert Conditions
Don't bury your fecal waste in the desert.As the dropping will not decompose due to lack of bacteria in the dry soil.
Find a rock well away from foot traffic.Do your business there.
Smear the dropping into a thin layer with a stick or large rock.Leave the smeared remains uncovered and the sun will quickly decompose and sanitize the area.
QuestionCan I defecate outside if it is raining?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can. In fact, it the rain will help break down the feces, and give good nutrients to the soil.Thanks!
QuestionCan I defecate outside naked?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can, if you are far away from civilization/other people. Otherwise you are in danger of breaking public urination/defecation and indecent exposure laws.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I get a portable camping toilet?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerMany outdoor supply stores sell them. Big chain stores like Walmart usually sell them as well.Thanks!
QuestionWhat type of toilet paper should I use for defecating outdoors?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerUse a soft, thick paper or use natural toilet paper, like big leaves.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I defecate while mountain climbing?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerFind a flat area and follow the steps. If there are no flat areas, pull down your pants and 'hug' a tree. Lean back, and use the tree as a pole to keep you at an angle. Squat while leaning back and do your business.Thanks!
QuestionIf I cannot find any dirt in the snow, what can I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerFind and area with a thinner layer of snow, dig through it over an area bigger than the hole you use for pooping, then dig your poop trench in that cleared area. Use a stick to mix the feces with some dirt before covering it and preferably kick snow back over the area. Basically MAKE yourself find dirt in the snow. There will always be dirt underneath somewhere, but be warned: you may need to spend quite a bit of time clearing a decent amount of snow if you are in a heavy downfall.Thanks!
QuestionWhat should I do if I don't have any toilet paper?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerUse a big leaf. (Make sure it doesn't have any insects or critters on it first!)Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I have diarrhea outside?Community AnswerIf you have time, dig a hole that's wide enough to capture any bowel abnormalities. When you're finished, use a stick to push anything that "missed" into the hole. Be sure to take any necessary medications or end your trip early if you get sicker.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I don't have any kind of cleaning supplies?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf you're outdoors, then you'll almost certainly have access to leaves, which can be used to clean yourself in place of toilet paper.Thanks!
QuestionWill wild animals be attracted to the smells?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerPeeing attracts some large predators, because animals like the salty taste.Thanks!
- If it's cold out - a smear of Vaseline before can minimize any wiping and speed the whole process.
- Instead of packing out your toilet paper and risking contaminating your backpack, drop the toilet paper into the hole you dug for your poop, set the toilet paper on fire, then cover it over with dirt after it's done burning and has been extinguished completely.
- It is easier if you lean against a tree when you squat, just try not to get it on the tree.
- In desert conditions, "dusting" with a handful of soft sandy dirt from under a nitrogen-fixing bush (mesquite, palo verde, acacia) can function as a toilet paper substitute.
- For everyone's sake, don't leave toilet paper behind and bury your feces properly. To do otherwise is disgusting and irresponsible.
- If you're really anxious before you go camping, bring a small pop up tent with no base. This gives a lot more privacy.
- Cheap toilet paper will decompose just as easily as the feces itself. Feces contains plenty of bacteria that can break itself down, hence septic tanks working without adding bacteria.
More expensive toilet papers may contain substances to enhance the strength and softness. So expensive toilet paper may not decompose as quickly.
- If you can, take a water bottle with you. It can help to loosen dirt to dig and make the process more hygienic.
- If you are in the forest, it is very easy to quickly get lost even in daytime since everything looks the same in all directions. Make sure you know how to get back to your camp even if you don't walk far.
- Some animals and insects are attracted to the odor, so always make sure you go to the bathroom far away from camp.
- Make sure you are not near a prickly bush. This may hurt! Same goes for poison ivy and poison oak.
- Never leave camp without telling anyone. This is for your own safety should you become injured while away.
- Defecate at least 200 feet(60 meters)from any water source, for it could contaminate the water supply.
- If you dig a hole, don't let your shovel touch your feces.
- Always be extremely careful burning toilet paper. In dry conditions please pack it out as the risk of forest fire are increased.
