TP rations

Does anyone have a formula for user days per roll of TP?

for a week long trip, have everyone bring 2 rolls of tp each.

everyone can bring their favorite (yes, some people have tp issues).
no bothering the tl. (hey tl, we're out of tp!)
if the crapper is out of paper, they can get some from their stash.
the tp is not in one spot (not all your eggs in one basket).

i don't know, seems to work.

I calculate whatever I think we need, and then double it. Sure beats running out, and it's not like it goes bad...

If I remember correctly, we bring one roll per person plus 2 extra rolls for a week long trip. The trick is to get the right kind of TP. Scott extra strong....1000 sheets per roll. Those fluffy rolls (even if they're double rolls) only have about 250-300 sheets. I've never had anyone complain about TP issues.

Just have everyone bring their own--then you don't have to worry about the math.

You can ask people to bring TP but bring some back up. Usually, the person responsible for the groover would bring the some, the TL bring some, and the TP particular bring their favorite...
It is fine to pare down the tp at the put-in. Not enough TP and the trip would be unhealthy and unhappy.
And don't forget disposable gloves.

I tell them to bring their own and whatever they are comfortable with. Id rather have them fill their drybag with TP than something heavy.

Then i bring two extra rolls of the cheapest roughest stuff i can find, just in case they have underestimated their powers

Never had anyone run out AFTER the first trip!!!

Now while on the subject, time to put down the phone, wipe, flush, and get back to work!!!!
