    I have some of the camp smaller toliet paper but have been thinking a real full sized roll is better, how do you carry toliet paper. I have been thinking ziplock bag?

    I carry it my bag on my motorcycle...you never know when nature may call or where you may be.

    Pull the cardboard tube out and then flatten the roll.

    Baby wipes..definitely the way to go, plus they already come in their own bag. I recommend the Walmart brand flushable wipes. One of the advantages of being a parent is learning how great wipes are. Trust me, your butt will thank you.

    +1 here. I use my home vacuum sealer to seal several up together. They are very flat and can be stored long term without drying out.

    Also, carrying a bandanna is handy also. If I'm ever stuck without, I can buy another bandanna for a buck or two.

    Forget toilet paper. When out & about, Wet Ones brand travel-sized packet of wipes. 15 in one pack. They'll fit into the front pocket of a pair of pants. Makes for excellent improvised toilet paper. I try not to use public restrooms, but sometimes you don't have a choice.

    Use them as toilet paper. Use them to wipe off the toilet seat. If some sad little Paris Hilton wanna-be drives her giant SUV like an oblivious idiot and soaks you in dirty gutter-water, you can even use the wipes to take an improvised shower on the street before confronting the moron.

    I've used them to wipe my hands clean after working on the lemon of a patrol vehicle I'm saddled with at work. (Something I'm not supposed to do, but if I don't take care of it; no one will.) And I have to take care of it at the very start of my job. So I need clean hands so I can enjoy lunch afterwards. The wipes work better than soap & water, and works better than a bottle of Purell.

    Head to the check-out lanes at Target or Wal-Mart. Just .99 cents for one pack of Wet Ones travel-size wipes. It's honestly the most versatile EDC item I carry.

    I keep some in my car, and my camping gear, but not in my edc bag. Wet ones sounds like a good idea, though i wonder if that would cause irritation or anything

    also, sounds like another great use of baby soda bottles (aka tube vaults)

    +1 for the Wet Ones. If the check-out lines don't have them, try looking in the toiletry section where the have the small travel/sample size stuff.

    No irritation. Very slight stinging sensation at the very start when you use one as toilet paper. But it dries instantly, and with no after-sensation for lack of a better term.

    The only possible danger would be if someone was allergic to the sanitary fluid found on each wipe. Not very likely though.

    I've used these before on backpacking trips: http://www.rei.com/product/750942

    Perfect alternatives for hand washing, tp, or "showers" when you have no other option. Even comes in a resealable bag.

    I could not agree more. Been using them for years.

    I have a 2 year old so we have baby wipes at hand all the time. P@mpers brand are the best. Wet ones are great but not has soft.

    +1 for the Wet Ones. However, I would not use them at home since I am not sure they are supposed to be flushed.

    If you're going to carry TP put it in an empty plastic folgers can. I don't recommend using wet naps or wipes all the time because sometimes you need absorbency not just a good cleaning, bright side is that the right sized folgers can will fir both TP and wet naps.

    Traveling a lot for both work and play demands TP (in a Ziploc bag), baby wipes, and Wet Ones. Agree, they are about the best EDC item there is, with plenty of uses.

    I think you got the idea ;) wet ones, pocket size, bigger ones for your BOB, the only way to go. You can use paper tissues to, but when in a public toilet, or a restroom stop on a highway or in the woods, especially after a spicy meal, wet ones are godsend.

    I've got a half roll in my EDC bag in a ziploc bag and a couple of travel packs of baby wipes. There's also a full roll in a ziploc bag in all of the vehicles we own.

    charmin makes a travel size roll, it's about the size of a roll w/o paper on it.... nice convenient size. Sometimes you never know... I work with a guy who's got diverticulitis and when we're traveling if he has to stop, he stops no matter where, when, whatever. I hate it for him, but he's taught me to be prepared. Sometimes you don't get the 2 minute whistle :-X
