Thanks to all who offered suggestions!!! They were all excellent and simple solutions!! With the drought there is not very much moss, but good thing to keep in mind, and I do not know what a princess tree is.
In a survival class I took back in pre Y2K years it was suggested that mullein was good to use for potty paper, nice big soft leaves but wonder how they would work after frost, not very well I would guess!

Do you have moss and princess trees up there? Also, there's newspaper
and moistened cardboard. In many countries, they use a bidet, so maybe
you could use a bulb syringe with water?
What about tooth paste,
Jeanne, you can use a Sweetgum twig/branch for that..sweet gum
right now I make my own from baking
