u don't poo for a week? (new page fail)
2 weeks of gels though... whooosshhhhh
Do you need a permit for that?
"Hello officer, no sir, I didn't knife that driver, this is simply for digging poo holes"
Yes but after a year of this kind of behaviour you have enough shitbricks to build your own bothy.
Not sure 52 shitbricks will make a usable structure.
I suppose it’s one way of avoiding getting an septic tank.
For car camping or van life I have my Glock:
It's a bit OTT for poo, and it's £55, but I couldn't help myself. Maybe one day I'll dig a foxhole with it. When the zombies come. I couldn't resist putting an edge on it - flashbacks to All Quiet on the Western Front when soldiers used sharpened shovels in the trenches. As the End Times approach we all need to learn new skills.
@hippy might need a sharpened one for his weekly shit bricks.
We have one of these, after breaking a coghlan.
So a couple of months back I started designing—albeit just in my head—a bikepacking mudguard/shovel thing. It was to be my ticket outta here. Yesterday I learned it already existed. Today I find this LFGSS thread.
Genius. Anything dual or triple purpose is what you want for cycle camping. You could use this as a plate, and a wind protector. Quad purpose.
I'm drafting the shit-shovel cookbook right now.
Poo shovels have a bad name. The whole point is NOT to get the poo on them. They should be rebranded as Clean Shovels.
But they're for taking with you when you have to poo. Not when you have to clean.
Then again you could have a shit shovel (a shovel that doesn't work well) or a shit shovel (a shovel with a roll of dunny paper on it that you dig your shit hole with)
Squat in a spot where the sun does shine
80 paces from water where the crick don't creek
Dig a hole 15~20cm deep so your logs don't peek
Far from the trail so the shit won't stink
Can we get an update @hippy? You did your trip, right?
Yeah, writing the blog (bog) about it now.
Didn't take a poo shovel, didn't need one.
There was one point when I had a bit of a dodgy gut but we were close to a town or something so I didn't bother stopping for a drop off.
The ground was so wet and soft (or it was rocky) so most places would've been fine digging with boot/hands.
I still want a purple ano poo shovel though..
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
