View Full Version : Potty at Hog Camp Gap, Missing

09-29-2012, 10:58
Hog Camp Gap in Virginia, just after the balds at cold Mtn, is very popular with thru hikers and weekender's alike. The woods were full of white flowers (toilet paper) and you could not lift a rock without seeing something. so I built a Latrine and moved it around a bit as holes filled up. It has gone missing? For 2 years all the white flowers throughout the area disappeared and the latrine was well used. I wonder who would take such a useful item?
Has anyone see it?
I hope some one did not burn it as it was all salt treated wood.
Perhaps someone moved it somewhere I did not look.

I recken that is slang for pressure treated. They push arsnic into the wood so it will not rot, or at least last for 10+ years.

Also copper and chromium. Made in what's essentially a pressure cooker. Way back when, I saw small batch operations that had a plume of groundwater contamination stretching way off site. Not good firewood, since the smoke and ash are toxic.
