I think a bidet would be a good investment. Anyone ever try one? How do you dry off afterwards?

A bidet is like having a parts washer or a but shower. Uses clean water.

Here's one they are selling that uses warm water and a heated seat:

I used one once and got my shirt all wet clear up between my shoulder blades. The last city slicker that used it figured that he might catch a greenhorn unaware and turned the pressure clear up. I be that greenhorn.

I always look for moose maple leaves (common here in NH) if I have to grunt one out in the woods and realize I forgot my TP.

Well, I don't think of myself as an "old timer" (76), but believe it, or not, tp was invented quite a while before I was. When I was old enough to handle the job, I used toilet paper and stuck with it.
