Ice & Esky Tips – When Camping
Keeping food cold when you are camping is a big issue, if you don’t own a portable fridge (an expensive purchase, especially for beginners to camping).
Your meal planning for the trip, needs to take into consideration what needs to be refrigerated prior to eating. If you bring along a lot of food items that need to be kept cold, your esky / cooler is going to have to be able to accommodate all of the items. One cooler only for all food and all the drinks? Then planning meals that factor in lack of ample refrigeration is something you need to work on!
- Of course, not all coolers / eskies are created equal. So remember that some coolers, due to their insulation properties, are going to keep your ice frozen a lot longer than others, and whilst you will apply these tips to every cooler, some tips will be more successful with ice retention.
