Jay, you didn't mention that the outhouse at Peter Grubb Hut is a two-story structure.

I was on a work party there one autumn, and we had the unenviable job of cleaning out the bottom of the outhouse!

One worker showed up with a complete Tyvek suit, rubber boots, and a two-stage respirator.

Yes, that outhouse is famous.

We better clean up this thread before Roger enters. He will claim that the thread is getting pretty crappy.
