Toilet paper


My good friend Edd and I where making a fast trip to the East Cape and had left GN really early, a while down the road we needed more coffee so we stopped at a small restaurant. Edd said the other coffee had kicked in and he really needed the banjos. He soon returned with a much relieved look and I asked him “how was the the restroom” he said “very nice”. I asked him if nice meant it had toilet paper, he replied “well I only have one sock on” Baja roookie mistake Edd. Best to spin down some small pocket rolls to take in with Ya just in case.

Always carry a roll in the truck.

Wet wipes are a godsend as well. Especially if you are camping out at all.

In years past when I was traveling with my family, it was common to find toilets with no seats! We carried our own seat in a shopping bag, along with TP and some towels.

Three years ago at the finish line for the Baja 1k, the Walmart there removed the toilet seats (at least in the men's room) for the event.




If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Went to China in October. Out to the country side. Pit in the ground. No tp.

While using it I was thinking that Mexico taught me well.

My vehicle carries two rolls and a shovel at all times. You never want to be caught with your pants down, as the saying goes. Just make sure to miss your shoes, or you're riding in the pickup bed the rest of the trip. :lol::lol::lol:

Those little wipes are sooooooo sweet while traveling. Fresh and clean and what the heck you're not supposed to flush them anyway!

My emergency set-up is a 5 gallon bucket lined with a tall kitchen trash bag.

For added comfort I line the rim of the bucket with slotted pipe insulation.

I always carry T/P and baby wipes !

A couple small pocket packs of Kleenex and a small pack of wet wipes. Works great for backpacking too.

My family is Army and I don't dare tell the whole joke that my Navy buddy told me. He said he could say that about Marines, but if any other service vet told the joke he would flip out;D

what a fussy poop method!

just squat!

most of the world uses squat toilets! get out and travel the world! see how the other half squats!

if i encounter a dirty western-style sit toilet or sit-toilet with missing seat, it becomes a squat toilet!

does the pope sh!t in the woods? yes, he squats!
