Roll-Your-Own Toilet Paper on 01/22/2014 20:35:40 MST Print View

Here's another Critter exclusive.

Toilet paper, bum wad, or arsewipe as it's called in some parts of the world, is considered a necessity among most hikers. Here's a way I was shown to pack TP when I was very young and I've never heard of anyone else doing it this way.

Just remember, you can use leaves, moss, or snow if you start to run low, to make the TP last longer. Sometimes I just rely on leaves, moss, and snow(critter style).

1)Roll your own toilet paper.
2)Packing Toilet Paper for Backpacking and Thru-hiking .

I've never seen a better way to package toilet paper. I was shown these two methods by a Green Beret.

Snowballs are better - and very invigorating

Also, if you begin the roll tightly around a length of string you can use it as a tampon for your bleeding vagina. Man-up, homeboy! You don't need toilet paper in the woods.

not sure why plugging his youtube channel isn't in the Web section..... i think we all know different ways of packing TP.

my method.. smash half roll, put in zip lock bag. works for weekends to 3 week thru hike. having it in a hard plastic container would make it less packable.

I'm not sure I'd want to risk getting frostbite on my brown eye... I'll stick with the TP.

at least he's moved away from sharp objects he has no skill with.

(did he really stab himself in the arm while cutting up a fish? or is that some Bear Grylls "reality" )

I wonder how much weight you save like this? A few grams maybe?

If you want to limit the amount you take, what's the matter with either folding it up neatly, or just feeding it into a plastic bag concertina fashion?

Who the heck needs TP? I just club a rabbit when I need to go. Nice and soft...

Critter,
I enjoy your videos, but I don't comment on Youtube.
that first video roll of TP looks "Colorado Legal" :)

I wait till a bathroom roll is down to half inch left on it, then I take it offline. I figure that's about 1 "Al Bundy drop"

then I take 2 more almost empty rolls, easy to collapse them flat, or nest 2 inside the roll of the 1.

When I "go" I don't want to risk dropping the entire trip's TP ration. so I only take 1 of the 3 almost empty rolls.

By the way Critter,
don't worry about the haters ;-) in Central Texas they use the Ti Spork to eat the Texas sized chilly meal portion, and to scrape the chilly crusties from their proverbial "South Bend national park"

>"I just club a rabbit when I need to go. "

Bear and Rabbit are chatting in the forest. Bear asks, "Don't you hate how the poo sticks to your fur?" Rabbit, "The poo doesn't stick to my fur." Bear, "Well, good . . . . " (insert visual of Bear wiping his backside with Rabbit).

I've never understood that joke, David. Wouldn't you want the poo to stick to the rabbit fur? Otherwise it would be kinda like wiping with teflon.

I do it more like your 2nd video - remove tube, I only need about half roll so I find a half used roll, then put in pint ziploc bag.
