It occurs to me that the main thing I use my 70 quart extreme cooler for is so I can have cool water to drink. I think it would be a much better use of space in my small car to bring up a much smaller cooler for the few other things I want cold, and one of those 5 gallon water coolers, the kind you often see at construction sites or strapped to the back of work trucks. I figure I'd fill it all the way up with ice in Reno and then pour in water to fill it, and then throughout the week just keep adding water and ice as necessary.
Has anyone done this successfully? I don't want to have to get ice every day, or even every other day, so I'm hoping it would keep the ice water cold enough for a few days.
Are there any differences in the insulating properties of these? They all seem remarkably the same.
