Maine’s Appalachian Trail privy replacement project

The Maine Appalachian Trail Club is working on replacing two outhouses every year until all 42 of them on Maine’s section of the AT  are replaced with a new and improved, 8×8 privy.  Where the old, pit-style privy only lasts about 4 years before needing moved, the new above ground privies are estimated to last up to 30 years.
