Pack in your own firewood for camping

We go camping about once a year. It’s always a toss-up whether or not we decide to bring our own firewood, or pay $10 per tiny bundle at the “camp store”.

In the past, we usually decide to bring our own, but it either makes a mess in the car or doesn’t stack well in a container.

This year I decided to spend 5 extra minutes to chainsaw the logs down to size before splitting them(so they fit vertically in our plastic bins). It worked beautifully.

This quick little graphic says it all!
