I just witnessed for the second time this year an even more disturbing trend - a trailer opening their dump valves as they leave a campground and spreading it on the road as they leave.

I recently hiked Wind Mountain in WA and at the very top, instead of a beautiful view of the Columbia gorge, I was met with a foul stench of human feces. A woman already at the top said to me “don’t come up here, I just used the bathroom” and I just kinda looked at her before she walked away.

Back in the day, I wonder how the lookout pooped? Over the edge? Any poop historians out there?

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

Back in the day there was a sing saying to poop on a flat rock and throw it off the cliff onto the glacier.

Not really related to this whole sh*t n get thread. But if you can find the book: Three Fingers Lookout: The men. The mountain and the Lookout. Tells the story of how this lookout was created.

Live every day like you will die to-marrow. For some day that will be true.

Yes. Last time I was up at the Pilchuck Lookout it smelled pretty bad too.

*alert*--item of shameless older-hiker nostalgia: June 1977, ascent via Sevenmile Creek spur. (Road 41 washed out) Ratty ladder, missing rungs. Lookout cabin siding--weathered and bleached Not a soul seen all day. Zero outhouse smell.

At least they didn't leave it on the side of the trail in a blue bag as a stinky little cairn. There's human poop in the rocks by the Pilchuck lookout too.
Last time I was at Pilchuck someone had hung it over the railing and let it rip. Also just tossed the paper work overboard. It was right next to the railing gap where you can climb out on the rocks, opposite the main lookout doorway. It probably took an entire season to wash away.
