    I do not advise anyone perch themselves precariously above any PVC cylinder for the deposting of any used food source material. Those that choose to take this risk must understand the potential consequences of their actions.

    Sounds like Mumbles could customize his PVC tube into a a variant of the spud cannon. Sheesh, he wouldn't even need hairspray to serve as the fuel, just straight & natural mumblethane. He could take on a ragged army of Hillcountry Methheads, Tweakers, Bigfoot, Poachers. Best of all, depending on the consistency of the projectile and the intestinal transit times of Mumbles et. al. the projectile could have a varied effect, from atomization (guacamole and grapes), to shotgun (trail mix-lots' o' nuts, topped off with some corn) to grunt-inducing slug (fibre-free whitebreads and sheet cake). A diet solely of sugar beets, humbow and blueberries could have a kind of psy-ops effect that clears campsites for miles around.

    Ford Fenders can you sketch out some mathematical charts predicting velocity, parabolic arcs, "environmental impact assessments" and so on?

    Skysoldier- any of your work involve bomb sighting?

    Needs a name though...

    How's "Stool Cannon" grab you Ed?

    No?

    Well, that sure took a smelly topic and spun it to even more undesireable levels! Well done Boot.

    I'm sure glad there were restrooms at the KOA. And after the detailed descriptions I wouldn't want to be with this bunch in the back country after they've all made their tubes.

    Sorry, the pipe, black in color, is 4" in diameter. I do not advise perching over it for any reason at any time. The proper setup will have bags and a small trowel that will ensure that you stay safe when using this carrying device. It is not intended for direct collection!

    I have carried a lot of shit out hiking, but I have never actually carried SHIT! :rofl:

    I'm gonna have to second the BURY IT technique. Nobody will ever know its there if you do a good job. It really is not that hard.

    "turd tosser"

    Perhaps we can get one of those beer salutes for this also. "This Bud is for you old inventor of the stool cannon. No one else could have come up with as disgusting a way of disposing of number 2."

    I'm sorry, but if that wasn't written by either a bear or the Pope, then it has no credibility!:rofl:
