Vicky’s Wet Nap Calculator
If all goes well, when this post publishes, I’ll be camping in Mount Rogers, Virginia. When I pack for trips such as these, I field a lot of “How many” questions. For example, “How many gigs of memory should I carry for my camera?” or “How many liters of water should I bring?”. Those aren’t down to an exact science, but the pressing question of “How many wet naps should I bring?” does have its own little formula:
wn = m + d * (p + 1)
Where wn is the total number of wet napkins I will pack
m is the number of total meals I will be eating
d is the number days I will be out there.
p is the number of daily dumps I expect to take
and then I add 1 extra napkin per day for good measure.
