a) Piss first

c) pull down the layers
d) evacuate the bowels
e) Wipe super fast
f) pull up pants/layers
g) hand soap
h) put back the gloves.
Obviously, your sequence would be correct (I don't really see any other way). I agree with peeing first, especially after exerting yourself for a long time. Nothing worse than squatting and getting the elephant trunk squirting all over the place.
In such conditions, I think its even more important to get on a schedule. As I get older, my body seems to want to get into a routine more and more. Bodily functions included. When I spend multiple nights out, the first thing I do in the morning is coffee and food. I even go so far as to boil water from my sleeping bag (if safely possible). As I pack up, clean up, get everything on (save the boots for last!), this uses valuable time in which to begin the wake n' wag process and usually my timing is pretty spot on. The more I think about it (and I havn't thought about it much), most of the guys I hike and climb with are kind of on the same schedule as well.
My father also told me (on a hiking trip actually) that he is taking fiber suppliments now and that has greatly reduced "peanut butter butt." Im not going to lie, the "cleaner" the dump, the more tolerable the process of woods pooping is...
Now that I've written this, it would appear that I think about my poops too much...
