My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Used Toilet Paper - Pack it out!
And if you urinate on it after burying it, and get the whole area wet, that helps. Plus the combination of #1 and #2 decomposes faster.

I always pick up trash. Usually, all I see are little bits - rubber band, plastic bag twist tie, corner of a candy bar,... I think that if all this "micro trash" is picked up, the nex...

Re: TP
Good comments - no need to be sorry I've been where there is loose TP and p00p on the ground, I agree, not good I've been to many sites that I know had been used many times before me...

Re: A Series of Newbie Questions
Do people really not use TP or carry it out? I just bury along with p00p. As long as I'm in a biologically active area, like there are roots around, it decomposes within a year. The paper ...
