The other day I was out enjoying mother nature when she called. As I was squatting behind the nearest Mesquite doing my business I reflected on how lucky we are to have flush toilets. Do you know that flush toilets more than anything else keep us from getting sick. Without them fecal matter would be everywhere. As it turns out fecal matter is everywhere in some places of the world. Most of those places are also places where people drink contaminated water. As it turns out actor Matt Damon might have been squatting out in the boonies somewhere sometime and did some reflecting of his own. Then he helped start an organization to help bring clean drinking water and flush toilets to people who don’t have them. This amounts to about two and a half times the population of the U.S. A. You can read all about it at :

I’m thinking making a donation to this organization would be a very Christmas type thing to do. Make you feel all warm a fuzzy all over. Now if we could just get people to wash their hands afterwards.

Next time you step off the trail watch where you set your feet. I might have been there. Good luck.
