This one is EASY BREEZY...
Whether you are motorcycle camping, car camping, van camping—whatever it is— your cooler and the environment you are camping in pretty much dictate how long your ice will last. Effectively, if your cooler size / type and conditions give you a day… this method will give you 2 days. If your ice standardly lasts 5 days, this will give you 10—so on and so forth
IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THIS…
Most all towns large and small have a source for dry ice. Google ahead and you'll see what I mean. Upon arrival to the town closest to your camp— or heck even before leaving town for that matter— get enough dry ice to layer the bottom of your cooler around 2-3 inches deep.
On top of that layer place any food items you'd like to stay frozen. Blanket that layer of frozen food in a little bit of ice and then load the cooler as you normally would
If you have no food or drink items being brought to camp that require being frozen simply put in your dry ice layer and then blanket it with a light layer of standard ice and then load your cooler as you normally would.
Voila! The camping goods that you desire to stay cold are primed for a far lengthier time to remain as such.
I've drank a warm beer or 3 in my day and it's not the end of the world but when it comes to meat and such the outcome can get a lil more hairy when consumed. lol. So we hope this tip helps.
Other key factors of course… decide what you want out of the cooler before you open it. Get in and get out. Also keep your cooler out of the sun-- finding shade goes a LONG way. Oh and most importantly--don't touch the dry ice. It doesn't end well. hahaha.
Stay cool ya'll.
