mtncycler Posted July 1, 2002 Share Posted July 1, 2002 Yes a hole 3-4ft deep. This is so other animals do not come into contact with human waste. of course you fill in the hole when you're done. This is info taught to ppl in a basic survival course. If you're lost, you should stay in one place, and do not want to attract animals. Peeing at the base of a tree then kicking moss onto it also stops bacterial contamination. I would be more worried about properly disinfecting my hands before I eat lunch on a hike! how many people actually pack a "survival kit" just for a day hike??? a great and humorous reference book is called "how to sh** in the woods" Quote Link to comment
