yeah,

and toss and turn it and roll it over to look at the other side and underneath...

water works for more than half the world for that purpose. and amazingly you DO feel ceaner than with paper ( i guess it is because you ARE cleaner)...
snow works, though sometimes painful.
leaves are not my thing, then iŽld rather turn the pants over. this trick is good for 4 days per set. donŽt wear thongs though.

happy dumpings

I've heard pine cones work well. You have to find the ones the squirrels have eaten so the pointy parts are gone, and it seems like they'd be more comfortable in one direction...

Never tried it myself.

I do know someone who used poison ivy leaves, though....self-critiquing exercise.

There is a reason you do not extend your left hand to shake hands in many
countries....

This same hand should answer your question.

If using this logic however, .. one may wish to extend it to...
" never open your water bottle, left handed". :biggrin:


alternatively.....
A cheap latex glove is about .015-.02 oz. Not durable enough?
you could always cut a strip off a titanium cheese grater...
mmmm smooth.

I have, when times were hard used army issue socks (Im sure Seeker knows what Im talking about). The wool blend socks felt like brillo pads, but clean nicely. BD

Lanthar, awesome picture! :biggrin:

One of my hunting buddies had to cut out his undies from between his haunches after a little "accident" he had.....real classy....must have had too much of my elderberry pie at dinner, lots of seeds in them elderberries....

All of this reminded me of a party I went to when I was younger...
Had to use the restroom, reached for the toilet paper, and there wasn't any!
Desperately looked around for an alternative, but couldn't find anything useable in the bathroom.
Finally ended up cutting off my underwear with my pocket knife and using it (cut because I didn't want to take my shoes and pants off from around ankles).
Didn't want to plug the toilet, but still wasn't very happy with the home owner at this point, so I put the soiled remains of my underwear in his wastebasket and hid it under the sink.

.... aaahhh memories.....
