I backpacked through Morocco with an English girl who admitted that during her travels in less than civilized places that she had used her hand at times

Not an issue. Even before I heard that I'd realised that she was way to feral, anyway was more interested in one of the other girls I was travelling with.

The ARC plan has long been pumped out. As for the Bundy OP, vile stuff. It's acceptable to drink after you are already "in the mood", but I detest the next day when you are reminded of exactly what you had been drinking

Same here, single ply only. Have not had a clog problem in two years.

I have a head, I have a wife/teenage step-daughters, I bring guests....no way, no how am I asking them to wipe and bag. Hell *I* will not wipe and bag...absolutely disgusting.

Explains a lot why there's such a strict regime on holding tanks and pump outs in the US of A... an inability to confront and deal with their own ****...

I don't understand how you got that. We deal with **** just like everyone else, by having it come out our a-holes.

And most of us try to put it where it won't affect the health of ourselves or others.

Re: Toilet paper and head clog

When in other countries that want the paper bagged I will comply. I am a plumber with a specialty in **** stirring when people say the system won't handle paper they are probably right. Paper will clog a poor system long before poop. Trust me its what I do. I know a lady that cannot afford 25 thousand dollars to dig up the street to fix her sewer, sbe has nursed that broken pipe for 10 years with bagging the paper and the occasional cleaning. When it does need cleaned usually a guest didn't follow instructions and there is paper in the line.
Now on my boat, I use paper, thin stuff, not to excess but if my system wont handle it I'm fixing the system.

exactly. I cannot understand all the people with blockage problems and choose to bag TP because there systems won't handle it. Doesn't have to be that way.
