Rule #2: Do Not Urinate into Paper Bag















I keep pestering Sergio to write about his moutain climbing experience or at least post his pictures with some commentary, but no luck yet. In the meantime, I thought I would show you something he brought home from his climb that brings me immeasurable joy.








Click on this to read directions.










These are the directions to the Waste Pack Out kit given to climbers before they begin. This comes in a large ziploc bag along with a paper towel and a brown paper sack filled with...kitty litter. I am sure you have all already realized what this is for, or read the directions, but just in case, this is in order for a person to carry their poo off the mountain with them when they go. The idea of grown people carrying that with them for 13 hours makes me laugh, and even if it didn't the inclusion of kitty litter really gets me.
But the best thing of all? The other side of the directions.

The picture is gorgeous. Looks like it was taken from a plane. Not sure I would be interested in carrying my "poo" with me on a climb. However I just read an article about how big of a problem this is and this is exactly what they talked about but they did not have a picture of X marks the spot.
