I was wondering the best and safest ways to poop to ensure your survival in almost any situation. I am curious about different techniques in different places. Do you poop differently in the woods vs in a porta potty vs truck stop bathroom vs in an alley vs in your home vs in someone else's home?? what items are you bringing with you or using? Does the time of day and/or location change the amount of time it takes to poop? what should I be looking for in choosing the best pooping location? I'm desperate to learn about all things survival. Just don't want to get caught with my pants down.
I don’t have much survival experience, but I feel this urge to start doing backpacking and then start going into the wild for short periods at a time to get away from society. So tips, books, anything that could be useful would be great.
Do any of you have any specific skills you believe to be important for the ability of an individual to survive dangerous situations when faced with them?
I feel skills like
Map/ compass reading
Foraging/ hunting/ trapping/ fishing/ tracking
First aid skills
are often touched on, but I believe the addition of the following to one's arsenal are beneficial:
Running/ hiking/ athletics
Kayaking/ canoeing/ sailing
Bodyweight/ conditioning exercises
Martial arts (my favourites are karate/ boxing/ BJJ)
The addition of all the above gives a survivor an edge and a good all round ability, and help to build will power and mental resilience. I feel like the more experiences, and variation in those experiences, makes an individual tougher physically and mentally.
Do any of you agree or disagree? are there any skills you'd add or take away?
