    With careful technique, you can use little to no TP. God help you if you have the runs though.

    Agreed with all.. heres one tho. Doug fir, pinion, and most short needled/clumped pine trees wioo work as good as good as a corn cob and they give you thaat fresh mtn feeling. I like snow too. Quicker at waking u up than coffee in the morning.

    we have a lot of catalpa trees around here the leaves are massive. however as with any leaf you must be gental in its application or you will get intouch with your inner self!!!

    when i was about 4 or 5 i was across the road in the woods playing and had the call ...well next to these wood was a large corn field. I had heard of corn cobs but it was to early in the season for the cob approach but i figured those leafs were strong ang big! well i tried it ...and i didnt dig it! OMG i had cuts and itched for a week it was horrible.

    My go to TP in the woods is Mullen leaves. You can usually find it at the beginning of most trails, and or on gravel roads leading to the trail. It might be more difficult to find as you go up the trial, so I always stock up before starting out. Honestly I prefer Mullen leaves to TP, it works wonderfully.

    I do however carry options, including some TP. But typically before reaching for the TP I will opt for a wet bandana. I have a specific bandana I use for this, and then wash it out afterwards. Definitely a good way to go if your worried about packing out TP.

    Yea, I'm still trying to picture this one also. I guess it's like using the three shells in Demolition Man.

    No TP? Then grab a squirrel. They may not like it but it is sure smooth on the tush!
