Trying to make few tousand popsicles... genny freezer issue

Post by maurizio » Mon Jul 31, 2006 5:28 pm

Issue is that i hate to have another genny running 24/7...
...aside from gas cost...
our camp is on the outer ring of center camp. Sporosite
at A and Wheel of Fortune.
We spay paint people in full color since 1997 (not last year).

Is there any close camp with a running Genny that we can share?
We have solar power for the camp lights but the Freezer will be too much for our system...
We are planning to make about 500/1,000 organic fruit popsicles per day...

Any other solution you can think of???

Thannks!!!

Love, maurizio

2 things off the top of my head:

Dry Ice

Propane Fridge/Freezer

I've kept otter pops frozen all week.

HUm...
The idea will be to make the popsicle overnight on the playa, to reduce volume of frozen item to transport from SF... I believe dry ice will help immensly but I fear it will not suffice... need to explore more though on freezer volumes and time...
Propane is a hard choice... on RV's every time you open the refrigetrator door you loose sooo much cold I fear it will be too weak...

Hum...
