    I get it at Kroger, comes in ~10 pound chunks. A 10 pound chunk should last about 24 hours.

    Hi Andrea.....Try cheap great way of keeping things Frozen....Make sure items are cold or frozen...wrap in layers of newspaper---then a layer of foil and put into plastic bag...I keep Fish frozen for almost two days coming home.

    thanks all

    Bobby..you are the 3rd person today that told me about newspaper and foil.
    currently......i have a 2 lb package of frozen chicken breasts.
    i wrapped them in newspaper.
    then i wrapped them in foil.
    they are sitting in a small styrofoam cooler on the kitchen counter.
    i put them there at 2 pm.
    so by 10 pm tomorrow evening i will see if they are still frozen.
    if so, it will be fine without the dry ice.

    Well darn!

    Do you typically use a softsided foil lined cooler? This is the one I use - great for moving rooms, food shopping, etc. https://arcticzone.com/catalog/produ...olling-cooler/

    Right - I'm just wondering if it's better to test in that instead of Styrofoam.

    Ahhhh!! Good thought.
    Pkg of frozen hot dogs.
    Wrapped in heavy duty foil and newspaper now inside the foil lined rolling cooler.

    Paul just said “ You can make dinner there”. I said that I do not cook on vacation but have no objection to warming things up.

    I'm like you, Andrea. I don't cook on vacation, except maybe breakfast or sandwiches. If I'm cooking on vacation, then I'm camping.

    Just a thought
    What about the shipping ice pack on amazon? Some are reusable too.
