Dirk thanks for the GPS points thats really helpful. :thumbup:

Sorry to lower the tone of the conversation......Just one practical thought. There are about 35 vehicles and assuming 2 people per vehicle thats 70 people who can generate a pretty hefty amount of waste over 4 days. The garbage is easy. What you take in you take out.

But now the other kind of (human) waste...... Where is all that going to go? And if its 6 inches deep in river sand all that is going to get washed down the river a few months later when the rains come......... :think:

The general rule is to do it about 70 metres from the river but in that area there are lots of villages. Burning the paper will help. An option is a sealable "poop tube" or a combination of brown bags in thick zip locks and take it home. Not so appealing but maybe we have to move with the times. I hear there are chemicals you can add which help - not too sure about those. Double frezer thickness ziplocks and put them in an old sealable tin or tuppaware.

Or maybe adult nappies! :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

Human waste = organic, biodegradable? Should not be any left after a few months?

So this is turned into a shitty thread :oldtimer: :rolling: :rolling:

Yes we are going to be a rather large group this time around, but taking into account that in pervious years we were 3 groups of 20+ vehicles so in actual fact more than 60 vehicles in 3 consecutive weekends, the "impact" was even bigger.

All "normal" waste must either be burnt if possible or you remove it with you and this is not negotiable!!

As for number 1 and 2 - this we will leave behind, we will just have to try and make it so that we try and make it so that it does not become a -mine field- around the camp......

So please just walk that extra 50m further......

It has not been a problem before and I don't see it being one this time around.

We also try and camp as far away as possible from a settlement and it is possible to "do it" outside of the river bed depending on how steep the embankment is - usually not that steep.
