The Cheek Spreader: A simple DIY latrine for a comfier bathroom experience.

Recommended Posts

Over the years, one of the most frequently voiced concerns I've heard from people who don't camp in the backcountry, or who've done so only a few times, is about how to poop comfortably in the woods.

 

For a lot of people, squatting is either too uncomfortable or just strenuous enough that they can't relax enough to have a satisfying bathroom experience...with the result that they either dread the idea of it so much they won't even try camping unless there's an actual bathroom or thunderbox, or else they do go camping but find that they're bunged up for days, leading to a pretty miserable trip.

 

So, I've made a little video of a quick, simple, and comfortable latrine setup which I now use on every camping trip. Some tips on wiping materials and their disposal are included.

 

 

Hope this helps,

-Martin

Old farm guys have all been out behind the barn squatted down only to have the old farm hound slip up behind you and stick their cold nose in your ass.  :scared:    scared011.gif

 

Thanks for the video and your wife trying to keep from laughing. I think.  :unsure:

I personaly like to climb a tree. i get good trajectory that way and then I just slide down a limb on the way down. Really  makes for a  clensing experience.  :hugegrin:

I do like your new avitar, OFG. Where was that from?

I figured since Kim started using a picture with a celebrity, I would follow suit.

 

I have to admit, it is a few years old.

You're welcome offtrail.  It's one of those subjects that makes people squeamish to ask or talk about, so thanks for the reply.

 

Cheers,
