I spent a month drinking OJ and tonic when I was on an antibiotic.
It wasn't beer, but it wasn't bad.

We have two different size Yeti's that we carry depending on the needs of that particular trip. We mainly keep Cokes in them because they stay colder than in the fridge. Usually the one we carry with us will stay inside the Tahoe.

We often take a12v plug in cooler on long trips--keep stuff good in the car(always take it to the states for a Trader Joes run...As for ice cubes--I have the reusable little plastic ones--rinse them off and good to go again-keeps drinks cold enough.

favorite tagalong cooler

Our extreme cooler if need more room for meats , milk , etc. Cost less then Yeti 192.00 on Amazon . this is why I got the idea insulation was very important to any of these frigs . We have a 5 day igloo too if not real hot . This rides in truck . The stainless pan for meats was extra about 12. Pat

We use a Coleman Extreme and like it a lot. A little trick from my old Boy Scout days has proven useful, also. If you're near an abundant water source, a large towel draped over the cooler and kept soggy damp will extend the life of the ice significantly. The swamp cooler effect.

We use an Igloo STX 54Cooler. Not quite the insulation of some of the super coolers, but way less money, and still better insulated than the majority of other coolers. It is mostly a drink cooler, and lasts ice lasts a long time. Nonetheless, quite a tough tough cooler, with metal hinges and latch.



A friend has the Coleman Xttreme. These two coolers seem to compare quite well.

Coleman which we also have is a nice cooler . We have 3 all total . This one I have pictured though will double time with not having to have a lot of ice at all . When frig was not working so good bought this one for meats etc. I get food poisoning real easy . We only take for extreme temps high 90's -100's , otherwise we use either of the other 2 . Pat

We have five of the Coleman Extreme coolers that we use when dipnetting salmon. Each one can fit five - eight yummy sockeyes depending on size. Scott

Your favorite tag along cooler

We love the RTIC 45. Built basically the same as a Yeti, but about half the price. Holds more than a comparable Yeti too. They say it will hold ice for 10 days, although we've not tried it for that long. Good balance of cooling endurance, weight and size. Only drawback is, there's quite a wait for one.

Lets try this again. (I have a hard time posting photos with the Ipad, had to switch to a windows machine). Still need to figure out how to carry a five foot hoop with a twelve foot handle. Scott
