For lack of a better term I want to build a "shit-kit". Basically I'm trying to make a portable system of some kind that I can take with me to the latrine site and set up expediently, so that I can wash my hands after using the ass-rag. What is everybody else's solution to this logistical problem? I want to be able to wash my hands immediately so that I don't get any contamination anywhere on my clothes, gear or food supply.
Keep a bottle of waterless hand sanitizer handy?
In the old days they'd shit in the stream. Still do in some countries... check out our peruvian Amazon video.



Not recommended today.

Shitting in the stream is not my style. I don't want to use hand sanitizer because what do you do if you run out of it? Maybe one of those folding wash basins would work best.
Fill your coffee can with water on your way to the chosen site...

Or, with a trash bag, surgical tubing and a zip tie (all in you maxi-kit) you could make a wilderness Bidet

While browsing Borders shitty selection of so called survival manuals, I came across a book entitled "How to Shit In the Woods!" Maybe some helpful hints .When asked if he washed his hands after returning from the bathroom my father replied"No, I didn't get any on me".So, thats my guideline on sanitation.Hope this helps! I'm no expert by any means on feces, but I think ,although undesireable, if you aint sick you wont make yourself sick.?!?Like my daddy said "Don't get any on ya" <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/excl.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':excl:' />
When you learn the one cheek sneak all will be revealed.

Er....contamination?? It is YOUR shit, I assume...Hell, if your shit is contaminated inside you....I sure would not worry about what is outside you. Sheesh...
#10 Coffee can + Scotts + wet wipes + 2 ziplock bags = Shit kit

(Current model in my vehicle)

Take cardboard roll out of the TP ,

Compress, then place it in a zip lock baggy <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ph34r.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':ph34r:' />



Can also can go in a large ziplock freezer bag, <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />
I haven't used an ass rag yet---only TP. I used to carry a small bar of soap in a zip lock until they came out with the wet-wipes. Now I can't find the individually wrapped wet-wipes anymore, so I put the big package of wet-wipes in a zip lock.

The problem is not making yourself sick, but everyone else in your camp. The most common cause of dysentery is fecal contamination spread to others via food prep, etc... Doesn't take many of those little bugs to make someone sick.



That's a bad infection to have in a survival situation, your strength is badly sapped, you get dehydrated, lose valuable nutrients, etc...



If you don't wash/disinfect your hands, I don't want you in my camp...



B.
and if you shit in the stream what about others down further from you who may be getting their water supply from there.



my kit includes the wipes, hand sanitizer and t.p broken up into smaller rolls spread out in a few different baggies just incase i loose the main one.
Don't forget to bury it when you are finished. When I am tracking people in the desert, I can tell how far behind I am by looking at their crap, and how much smell still lingers. The smugglers walk all night, then lay up during the day. The last thing they do before finding a shady place to rest, is shit. If I am within one hundred yards of the lay up, I can find them by the smell.



The same thing could happen in a survival situation. You may not want anyone to know you are in the area.
