Reader has the scoop for poop

Posted: Tuesday, May 29, 2007

Another season of personal-use fishing is soon to start at the mouth of the Kasilof River. Lots of people will come.

The state does not have any provisions for toilets or garbage. Last year the Old Historic Caretaker’s cabin was in second place for the record of World’s largest Outhouse. BYOP — Bring Your Own Paper!

You also didn’t want to step off the road into the bushes, including property next door and the small cemetery. One of the neighbors has pictures if you would like to see.

Several years ago, more than 3,000 permits were issued. How many now? And permit holders bring their friends and family. How many bladders and bowels to be emptied on this small piece of land?

Have your reporters come down and take some pictures, maybe Guiness Record Book will send someone, too. They could count the piles. Just don’t step in the “mine field” and watch for the bears, too.

We would like a flush bathroom with a ranger on duty. Don’t laugh, they are collecting fees in every little roadside pull-off in the state.
