Here is a photo caught as I was taking the roast beef out of the camp oven after cooking on the fire; the Larapinta Trail. I was leading the walking tour in this photo but I also cook and organise everything else.
God, I am so filthy. I take care to use hand sanitizer before handling food (mainly so paxs can see me taking food precautions and feel reassured) but it really just means spreading the dirt into a more even layer as there is such limited water to wash by.
We carried all the water in and we used a chemical toilet (this actually means a toilet reservoir with disinfectant added, that’s all). I told all the women (this was a women’s only group) that number ones went in the bushes and they could take care of the paperwork on the fire; number twos only in the toilet because I had to empty it if it got full and the backup would be abluting into plastic bags and saving them :-). I t is a National Park and we have a permit to camp there on the grounds we leave no trace.
