    No need for WAG bags in New England if someone just uses proper dispersed disposal techniques. Solids and the toilet paper with it rapidly decompose if is buried in the top soil. In dry alpine environments, moisture is missing so the waste just dries out and stays around a lot longer.

    Ever try to dig a nine inch cat hole in the average NH forest? It ain't easy given the roots, rocks, gravel and hard pan we have.

    Digging a hole here is no better in CT either. Farmers in all the New England states grew great stone walls back in the day.
    Have fun & be safe

    That's true. What if you dig nine one-inch holes?

    Would be interesting to see just how many folks are using proper technique. I’m no statistician but my guess is it would be quite low.
