Tube Storage during rebuild?


I finally have the tubes for my 733 all patched and holding air fantastically. Now I have been told they are in the way. They are sitting in the driveway and I have to admit they are quite large.

So what is the best and safest way to store them? I figure there are a couple options. I can deflate and fold them up but I a wonder if that might lead to any damage? They are old and I am not sure how flexible they are now.

I also have space out in the wilds of my property, it's grass/weeds/pasture like. I could put down a tarp or something or maybe saw horses to keep them up off the ground but again I don't know if I need to worry about damaging them with just a couple points of support. Also I worry about rodents out there. The cat isn't too productive these days.

My number one concern is to not damage them. They are 20+ year old hypalon so rumor has it they are close to the end. I need them to work for as long as I can.
