Re: [RC] Keeping food cold and safe to eat - Maggie Mieske

Actually, NOT available in all areas though.  :)  Otherwise I would have
some!!!  When we went out west, you got it free if you bought meat.  :)

What you need is a better cooler.  Somewhere I saw a cooler for sale
with
much thicker insulation, but I can't remember where.  Usual coolers are
made
for picnics.  There are some ways to extend the life of ice
dramatically:

1. Start with blocks of ice not cubes.  You can make them in a home
freezer.
2.Freeze anything that you can and put that in.  Acts as extra ice.
3. Keep the cooler in the shade.  Under a truck or a tarp on poles or
trees.
4. Wrap the cooler in blankets, or old sleeping bags.  The more the
better.
5. Make an over box from 2" Styrofoam house insulation.  Can be very
durable
if covered with plywood.

Between shade, and extra insulation the ice should last for 3-5 days
depending on the outside temperatures.
