Friday night my son has his inline hockey game and Saturday I have my Oktoberfest party to go to.

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea....does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

One week away! This has always been a fun, relaxing, kid friendly camp out!
Not to mention beer tasting!

We don't have much experience with multi-day camping trips, so I was curious as to how you go about packing food so that it stays cool for three days? Google research suggest two coolers, but just curious to hear how everyone else does it.

1. Freeze everything that can be frozen and will be used on the 2nd or later day. Meat, for example. That way your frozen food becomes part of your ice.
2. For the actual ice use block ice. It lasts longer.
3. Drain off the melt water. It is warmer than your ice so it will melt the ice faster.
4. We prefer to have a separate ice chest for drinks since it will be opened more frequently than the "food" one.

2 coolers work well, block ice lasts longer, however doesn't keep contents as cold. On the top of my food
cooler I use plastic tupperware container w/out the lid to keep things I don't want to get wet like tortillas, butter,
bag of graded cheese, (for quesadillas) grapes etc. . , plus it makes it easer to remove the tray to get to things at the bottom.
You could pre make meals, freeze and just heat it up. Pre packed like pasta ravioli, tortellini, and a jar sauce.
Already made burgers don't take up to much room.
Many dry foods don't need a cooler, bread, chips, snacks, fruit, trail mix etc. Jars of pb&j!!

I have an extra cooler, large, if someone needs to borrow it, you would have to come get it.??

That is "Boooo!" Bummer, man, but as the saying goes, "Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other (camping) plans." There will be other camping trips. We should plan another one soon!

We'll raise a glass and toast to you an uneventful move. Image

Good advise.
Do not use dry ice. It will freeze the door or lid shut and everything inside solid for days. Been there, tried that.

I use regular ice. No blocks here since they take up too much room. I don't freeze anything for a couple of days camping. If I was camping longer then yes. Drain the water daily to prevent it from getting into your food. Keep them in a cool shady area and not in a hot car or in the sun.

What else do you need besides beer really? :lol:

I'm back on the site after being kicked off by the autobot for the past four months.
Wish I could grab one of those sites but gotta go to OCTO to hunt down some metal for the 21 window project :roll:
Would encourage any fence sitters to go. Tristan and I went last year and it was a blast, mud caves, beer tasting (well not of him, too young), hot springs and of course excellent company.
