Re: Thinking outside the (ice) box

Don't forget you have to fill the water reservoir water each day. Toting it is a pain and you'll lose some or all of it. Even if you carefully capture the melted ice, and it looks clean, you won't want to use this water for anything but perhaps washing up. This is a consideration when you don't have a bountiful water supply.

Re: Thinking outside the (ice) box

We had one of the standard portables that we used with the generator. It worked fine for what we needed. We graduated to a U-Line when my wife found one in the classifieds for $100.

My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
