    And at $130 for the shorter one, it really is quacking like a real duck.

    I only hope my $2.00 Coughlan trowel holds up as well. If not I could buy 64 more of them.

    Cheers

    From the ULA website where they are sold, there's a Q&A section...


    Q: The Helix Potty Trowel has a striking resemblance to an ice axe. Have you considered using it as an ice axe?

    [Answer]

    A: Hmmm. Wow. Now that you mention it, it does kind of look like an ice axe. I've heard that a number of thru-hiker's have been using the Potty Trowels on the PCT and CDT as a non-technical ice axe for glissading, basic slope safety, and the occasional self-arrest. You certainly have to admire the weight conscious, multi-use philosophy employed by these intrepid hikers!

    At least they have a sense of humor about it

    You did great. Thanks for the vids, and for showing how you pack your pack. Most only show what they carry, not how and why. Again, good job!

    Thanks for taking the time to put this together, Raul. I really enjoyed it. Do you take a spare bag to pack out your trash or do you typically try to burn that? Just curious what others do in that regard.
