    Seriously. Can’t river runners just eat some canned or freeze dried shit for the last 2 days of their trip and not obsess about 31 more hours of ice retention?

    Now that's not nice. Cocktail ice on day 7 or 8 is a welcome treat.

    What's wrong with warm beer? It's infinitely colder than no beer.

    If I was at the beach for 3 days and all that was in my Hydro Flask was warm beer, I would consider it.

    Then again, I might just have it dipped in the water to keep it chilled. It is waterproof, after all.

    Same reason I like cocktail ice on day 8 except I can't dip ice in a river to keep it cold.

    Yeah, they did a bunch of tests, but I'm not going to tell you.
    Thanks for letting me know about all the vids. Not sure why anyone would watch more than one or two though.

    I have 3 softside coolers from Norchill that will fit into each other, the small fits in the medium, and the medium fits in the large. They're really convenient for going to Costco then having to wait several hours for the ferry, we use one for frozen, one for cold stuff, and one for hot food to eat while waiting.

    I highly recommend them

    Thats how you get super clear ice cubes or balls for cocktails FYI. All abut the slow freeze. Put them inside a few coolers inside the freezer and wait.
