Day 15 Wayah Bald Shelter to A. Rufus Morgan Shelter
4/8/14 Today’s miles: 15.5! Total miles: 131.4.

Pretty standard day today, so I’m going to talk about a subject that my grandkids will like.


Yes, we poop in the woods! So popular is the topic that a British woman wrote an entire book on the subject.  I will not be that lengthy…

The good news is that every 5-10 miles, there is a shelter.  Near the shelter is always a source of water, and, you guessed it, a toilet.  Not like yours, though, ours is called a privy. Think of anold fashioned out house, or port-a-john, without chemicals.  Set away from the shelter, this small building sometimes has a roof, has one hole, which has a toilet seat.  There is a little privacy, but not much, and it is used by both sexes.


I was an early bird on Day 3, so I sat on a seat with ice! Wow! There is some science to these: the poop stays above ground, and after going, you add a handful of leaves to stimulate composting, just like in a garden.
(By the way, you bring your own toilet paper and sanitizer!)

What happens if you are not near a privy? Find a quiet spot. Dig a 4 inch hole. Drop your pants, and good luck! Fill the hole, and you are on your way.
