Re: Rotomolded coolers: any special tips?

that bubble wrap insulation stuff with reflective material on one side makes a great cooler wrap/covering, shiny side out. ... It's a lot more expensive than the one-sided-mylar-tarp, but Reflectix is a lot less noisy. I tape it to the bottom and sides of my cooler, then make a "tray" that sits inv...

Re: Rotomolded coolers: any special tips?

If it's the blanket that will be lined, that helps. But not much if the shiny is towards the cooler. Could be easier to throw the blanket over the cooler, and throw one of the tarps with a mylar side over the blanket and secured. No messing with lining a blanket. Some insulation from the ground help...

Media upset about "hidden" Covid-19 cases "suddenly" appearing in the Confirmed cases count.

Re: Rest In Peace

They have a test for 2019-nCoV. The Dr tested positive. But reportedly they did not test and get results promptly enough to treat. That doesn't hold water. They don't treat 2019-nCoV, as there is no treatment for it. They treat symptoms as they present. There is no credible way he could fail to rec...

Don't forget that shade cloth makes a nice wind wall too. It shades/reflects the heat on the other side away, and all the little holes mean that it will release air pressure through them too.

Watch out for the camps that sign up Virgins, take their money (and more than it would cost on your own), and then assign them duties, where they might get three hours off every second day, to go explore BRC. On your own, you do what you want when you want. Unless you want special meals, it's only a...
