The lowly trailhead toilet...

last month

Many of us have rather unreasonable fears. I have such a fear when it comes to using pit or vault toilets, commonly found in areas where hiking trails abound. It isn't so much the smell (which can be disgusting), but more the act of leaning over that dark opening and not really knowing "what all" is down there. Just read this story, confirming that if I ever drop an item down one of these things, it's just gone, man. I cannot fathom going in after something, and think I have to go lie down now and stop envisioning this actually playing out in all its gory detail.
