Hiking trails have started converting all the old "pit" style privys to new "composting" privys with the worms. They have much less environmental impact.

I dunno if I would go that extreme in my home or rv though...lol...

My in-laws live in a cabin on a lake. Because of the way their system is set up, it cannot handle my TP. The general rule is that if it is number 1, TP goes in a bag next to toilet. If it is number 2, etc., it gets flushed. This cuts way down on the amount of TP and the occurence of everything getting stopped up.

This has nothing to do with camping, just wanted to point out that sometimes there are extenuating circumstance where not flushing the TP is a practical idea.

Just watched a documentary on the romans.They had a bucket of water with a rag tied to a stick .Use it and swish it in the bucket.I'd rather deal with the occasional paper mountain.

Just one question to all you sqeamish people. When you had babies. What did you do with the Diapers, Pampers and the like?
Been there, done that. But never stop learning.

Thanks for resurrecting this thread. It reminds me of the grandpa of a friend of mine. He had all the inside scoop on outhouse operations and etiquette. He would expound frequently and it became known as the the Rippberger Outhouse Disertation.

Not only are worms good but there are unseen bacteria eating everything you can think of. Particularly interesting are the little bugs cleaning up the gold mine, copper mine, etc that used sodium cyanide in the mining operation. The cyanide sorta screwed up the water supply and some smart PHd started running the creek water through his bacteria pond and out came crystal clear water.
(Black Hills Gold mine South Dakota). You just don't want to get down wind of these little cridders when they start passing gas.

I can just picture (smell) what this would be like on a hot day. You can't tell me this wouldn't smell bad.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming
