Jan and Anne,
What marvelous ideas! Jan, I never thought of doing laundry that way but now that you mention it, of course it makes perfect sense! What a great idea about the sloshing tubs.
Anne, I hear you about the ice. It's an absolute must-have for me and I have a seperate cooler for my ice that will keep much of it frozen for almost 3 days. I'll also pre-freeze small milk jugs with water. There's usually still a cold block by day three, and when I bring out the icy lemonade or iced tea, I'll often get surprised looks from other boondovkers who wonder where the heck I got ice in the middle of no-where. It helps to have a fridge
that runs on propane
Thanks for the feedback!
