Kathleen Meyer presents a colorful how-to guide for surviving in the wilderness.
World changes come fast and furious, and in the backcountry it is no
different. The practice of “packing-it-out”—adopted to protect
high-use areas and fragile ecosystems—is here to stay. We are now often urged
or even required to haul our poop home. To assist with all this responsible
human waste disposal, Kathleen Meyer discusses the latest in product
innovations, from classy high-tech to inexpensive do-it-yourself. She covers
the most current solutions to the health risks of drinking straight from
wilderness waterways, presents a raft of natural substitutes for the purist who swears off toilet tissue, and offers a wealth of new recommendations for
ladies who must make do without a loo.
In rowing hundreds of urbanites down whitewater rivers, Meyer honed her
squatting skills. Her delightfully shameless discussion of a once-shameful
activity, her erudite examination of its associated vocabulary, and her
unapologetic promotion of its colorful vernacular make How to Shit in the Woods essential—and vastly entertaining—listening
for anyone who has ever paused at the edge of the forest and pondered, “where do I go to go?” Download and start listening now!
