I've noticed a couple Harris Teeter's in NC that had dry ice in coolers near the checkout. I'll keep an eye out now.
Spent some time yesterday taking the ice box out of our new/old Scamp
. For being in a closed box out of sunlight for 21 years, the plastic was impressively yellowed. First order of business has been taking everything apart, washing the plastic and painting
it with white plastic paint
, then rebuilding the cracked areas around the hinges. The hardware is getting cleaned up and POR-15'ed and stainless screws throughout. Tabitha has started reinforcing those with some aluminum stock. The plastic compartment is glued into the styrofoam box so will try to clean the styro as best as we can, then add additional insulation around it.
I'd prefer the icebox for boondocking
and lack of noise, and especially to cut down on weight/maintenance- hopefully it will keep nice and cool
