Finding Private Places in the Woods

Whenever I'm deep in the woods on a bike ride or a long hike and I have to find somewhere to go to the bathroom, I always walk off the trail and look for somewhere private. You don't want a group of day hikers creeping up on you in that situation. The most embarrassing thing that could happen is you get lost and have to tell everyone how you wandered off trail. But by far the worst thing, which I think about every time I creep deep into the woods looking for a secluded spot, is that I'm going to find a dead body. I suppose I could also worry about stumbling onto a drug growing operation that's guarded by guys carrying machine guns, but at least then I would have a great story as opposed to a depressing memory. You know it's always hikers who find the bodies.
