LONG TERM USE OF ICE CHESTS
#1
Blush   NOTE TO SELF   "YOU ARE NO LONGER A SPRING CHICKEN"  THEREFORE YOU SHOULD NEVER,  NEVER,  EVER AGAIN PICK UP A LARGE ICE CHEST, WITH 20lbs OF ICE IN IT, UP OFF THE GROUND BY YOURSELF AND UP INTO A VAN WITH A 2IN LIFT ON IT<<<<DUMB ASS.
  IF YOU DO YOUR NECK WILL THEN HURT UP INTO YOUR JAWS<<<<DUMB ASS   Undecided

EVEN THO MY FRIG IS COOLING SOMEWHAT I HAVE BEEN ICING DOWN MY INSULINS FOR ABOUT 4 DAYS.

THE LAST TIME I HAD ONLY A ICE CHEST FOR REFRIGERATION WAS 1979.  I WAS CAMPING IN A 19ft T.T. & THEN I KEPT THE ICE CHEST SITTING IN THE BATHTUB COVERED WITH HEAVY BLANKETS.  I'M WORRIED ABOUT THE INSULIN AND NOT SO MUCH THE FOOD.

IT REALLY HURT LAST TUESDAY NIGHT WHEN I DID A COMPLETE PURGE ON MY FRIG.  I KNOW I THREW AWAY AT LEAST $100 IF NOT MORE OF FOOD AND CONDIMENTS.  I HAD JUST STOCKED UP ON FRESH FRUIT AND VEGGIES.

LUCKILY THERE IS A PLACE HERE WHERE FOR $1.75 I CAN GET 16lbs OF FRESHLY BAGGED ICE.  OR 20lbs DROPPED FROM A CHUTE INTO MY ICE CHEST.  I WENT FOR THE 20lbs DROPPED INTO DOUBLED CLEAN TRASH BAGS UNTIL I COULD GET HOME AND REBAG/PLACE IT INTO CONTAINERS.

SO I'M THINKING 2 GALLON FREEZER BAGS OF ICE WITH THE FOOD PACKED ON/ AROUND THEM IN THE BIG ICE CHEST.  THEN ICE IN CONTAINERS WITH A LAYER OF FOAM PLATES AS INSULATION BETWEEN THE ICE AND INSULIN.

SINCE THE FRIG IS SEMI WORKING I'LL PLACE SOME INSULIN WITH ICE IN IT.  THEN ALSO PUT SOME INSULIN IN A ICE CHEST TOO.

I'D APPRCIATE ANY ADVICE OR INPUT FROM ANY OF YOU.

PS  WHEN I WENT TO GET THE BIG ICE CHEST THE SPRING OR WHATEVER MECHANISM THAT ROLLS UP THE OVERHEAD DOORS ON MY 10X20 STORAGE UNIT FAILED WHEN I HAD IT RAISED ABOUT 5FT.  I WAS ABLE TO BACK AWAY WHEN I DROPPED IT. 

 THEN I RAISED IT ABOUT 4ft  & JAMMED A PIECE OF WOOD UNDER EACH SIDE OF THE DOOR + PLUS BOTH A FOLDING METAL CHAIR AND A WOODEN ONE FOR SUPPORT WHILE I QUICKLY {WELL IT WAS MY  VERSION OF "QUICKLY"} WENT IN AND CAPTURED MY NEW TO ME RUBBERMADE  ICE CHEST.  

IT HAS WHEELS, 3 HANDLES. A SPLIT LID THAT WILL HOLD 2 GLASSES/CANS IN EACH LID, AND I CAN SIT ON IT. 
  Smile IT MIGHT BE ONE OF BEST $10 I'VE SPENT LATELY.
I WAS NOT BUILT TO BREAK  
                  
         MY  Heart  IS GOOD....BUT OH THIS MOUTH
