I was thinking of putting my bashplate toolbox up for sale as now that I no longer use snow chains, I don't really need it. It occurred to me, however, that I might be able to carry small amounts of firewood in this. Not only that, but hopefully, the heat from the engine would dry it out, even if it was wet wood found on the floor. I live in Wales and it rains a lot here. Consequently, I not only carry some cotton wool and vaseline fire starters, but also small amounts of kindling with me, as finding anything suitable trail side is a gamble in our weather. The problem is, even with this, it's often possible to burn through all your kindling, before you get up enough heat to dry the wood you've found. I know putting a load of light scrub in the middle of summer in Oz is asking for trouble. I'm talking about putting largish chunks of dead wood you find on the ground, soaked right through, maybe half hour before you stop to make camp. So, has anyone done this before and what were the results? PS, yes, I know about splitting wood to get to the dry stuff; just wondering about this as an alternative.
