Re: [RC] Keeping food cold and safe to eat - Kristen A Fisher

They have coolers now that claim to keep ice frozen for 5 days in 90 degree
heat. I don't know if these claims are true, but I was tempted to buy one at
Target the other day, esp. as it is called the "ENDURANCE" model. It has a
pull out handle and wheels like luggage ;-)

Any suggestions on keeping food cold and safe to eat?
I have tried ice, but of course, I have to bring it
from home, and it usually melted within 12 hours  -
then I just have a cooler full of cold water. That
still works for drinks but some plastic food
containers and packagings are not waterproof! Soggy
food is gross.
I also have some ice paks, but they are not all that
cold or get warm fast.
I would love to bring tuna sandwiches, but putting
mayo in anything that I can't put in a fridge scares
me a little. I had food poisoning once from mayo going
bad and it was hell!
Any ideas (So the food stays cold until Sunday, not
just Saturday morning!)?  I am on the beginner low-
budget system, so I sleep in a tent and sleeping bag
and only have a cooler to work with.
