most pleasant groover dumping experience ever.

Just came up with something that may make sense.
Last river trip was just me with my small boat, so i did not bother to bring an ash can, i just dumped my ashes in 5 gallon bucket groover with hermetic lid.
Was the most pleasant groover dump ever!
Did not ad water till i dumped it, kind of like the saw dust idea.

Got to thinkin', why not just use a small amount of wood ash in place of lime
or groover tamer? You are all ready packing it out, and no additional cost?

Should probly sift the bigger chunks out so that they do not clog anything, and maybe be carefull not to get it on your ass, cause it might burn, but then so would lime, and the groover tamer is probably not to good for skin contact either. Maybe a VERY light sprinkling of water to hold down the dust.

Let other people decide if it sounds like a good idea, or a shitty one.

Yep, this works, have done it many times. I find we don't always have a fire or cook with charcoal every camp, so it's a bit hit or miss on the supply side.
