    You know you don't HAVE to take the ashes. If you are not sentimental about the cremains, the crematorium would take care of disposal.

    If you have a pickup truck, could you not put a large tank in the back of it? Fill it up at the house, drive to the barn, use water and/or refill tanks there.
