Interesting. WAG bags are not permitted in most places. Regulations always state that you need to carry a washable/reusable system. I'm not sure why, but when they start to find dumpsters and outhouses filled with them, they might also require more.

Wag bags could be considered washable and reuseable... I wouldn't want to be the one cleaning them out though...

I was talking with one of the rangers up there who said that next season everyone will have to pack out their poop from the Upper C.

WAG Bags are permitted on lots of rivers. Most require you to carry a sealed container to haul them out which might be a good idea in any event. I still think its a good system if you are willing to buy the bags.

I agree that they seem like a good system. A friend of mine purchased mylar ziplock bags to drop them into and they never stunk. I believe the RESTOP company has some thing similar that comes with a mylar bag.

We camped at Benches 2 on the upper C last month and the pit toilet has been recently filled in.

The American Whitewater website indicates these bags are "approved for disposal in any garbage can." I find that hard to believe. Please, please, do not put any of these bags into any of my garbage cans.

LOL, excellent point! I am assuming you are meaning to include Depends. Heck, maybe we could all just wear astronaut diapers, and dispense with the Groover altogether!
