When I'm working out at the woodlot, which is about 50 miles from home, I bring a change of clothes and wear some old work cargo pants which stay in a plastic tub, along with my hard hat, boots, chaps, etc. I don't want to drive all the way home in sweaty, dirty work clothes. So, yes, I get nearly nekked (sometimes totally nekked) when changing out in the woods. When I'm working at home, splitting or stacking, I change in the mud room before going to the fridge for a beer after I'm done. Back in the day I used to cut a lot of pine. If you do that, you can just stand your work pants up in the mud room until the next time you need them.
