: I am travelling around the world at the moment and have just used the phrase "bagging the shit out" and people had not heard this before. I was wondering if you knew where the origins of the phrase came from.

: The hostel would be very happy if you could answer this one for us.


I would take it to mean putting your garbage in a bag and carrying it out of wherever you are. That's one of the "leave no trace" principles of responsible outdoor activity. Is that what you were talking about?
