The Adirondacks are facing the same problem. They are now considering WAG bags.

Thanks John. I have no idea why the link flipped like that, I updated it too.

One of the things they cite as a reason for WAG Bags in the WZ is that it is more cost effective than pit toilets.

I'd be curious to hear SN and Steve C's take on that allegation.

In Australia, Daks are a Pommie brand of trousers, so "Daks are full" is a case much worse than long drops, cat holes or WAG bags.

Haha, fair point. I'm sure some people have ended up with full trousers on Whitney while "refuse"ing to use the WAG bags.
