We hauled way too much hardwood with us last year on a Yampa trip.

Used supersacks (heavy duty webbing style bags used to haul bulk pelletized material) that we had cut down and then re-sewed the heavy handles back on. We threaded frame bars through the handles which made one super duty drop bag. We loaded stoves, firepans and other heavy gear on top of the wood pile then used the drawstring to cinch it all tight.

One of these days when you swing by to talk mini cats I'll give you one of my extras.

I 2nd the super sacks I used to work in the mining industry and we got tons of them. I have a wood beaver tail that I'll lay a tarp on layer fire wood at the bottom wrap the tarp around the wood then proceed with the gear pile. I also have a a 30gal plastic drum with sealed lid that i fill with wood fit gods in the bow of a boat you can buy them from u line.

Pool and a pond... Pond be good for you.

In the past I have wrapped the firewood bundle in a tarp with a couple cams around it. Then at camp the tarp is used for a ground cloth under the kitchen.

We used on of those 30 gallon plastic drums as well Stiffy. Was full of dry goods at the start of the trip and could have been used as a backup groover had the other systems filled. That rubber clamped lid seals quite well.

I make a blue tarp burrito and wrap it with straps as well and put it in my gear hump. In the case of a flip the wood will be soaked, but depending on the weather it would dry out quickly. On a typical run the wood does not get more than a few drops. In camp the tarp does double duty as, well a tarp.

Double bag it with heavy duty garbage bags and duct tape. Use the bags for trash.
