It is a shame they don't make them anymore.
Wow - too bad they currently aren't making them. If the email link is still good on the old website, maybe a flood of emails from ADV members might convince them to restart production .

You can see a cutting board, 2 collapsable mugs/bowls, 2 burners, skewers, drip coffee maker, and his box of utensils /spices.

Hey Oldrice, how's that cooking platform treating you?



Too well actually. I think I've gained weight. And it's not so good for my diabetes either. Pancakes, sausage, and eggs - Too many ways to cook several things simultaneously has led me to sleep with a full tummy every time. Niiiiice. I realy dig it Keith. Thanks again!

How do you keep food cool while camping in the middle of summer? Any pics of coolers some of you are using? Links would be nice too.

Dinty Moore Beef Stew! Hot dogs with Hormel Chili and shredded Kraft cheese. Burgers, beans and a salad. Stop at a buffet that has a lot of veggies. Pack peanut butter and Italian bread, jerky, etc.

All good. We don't waste time with the "gourmet", routine. We just like to ride. The food thing is simple and should be. That's why I bike travel. The fancy setups I leave at home. I can grill with the best of them, but I leave the frills at home.

I like the basic, no non-sense, stuff on the road. God, guns and guts.

Good on you guys that go to the trouble of doing the 3 star quality cooking.

I used to take a small, hard plastic cooler and now have a Polar Bear.

1) the PB keeps stuff colder (the ice last longer so I need to buy less ice)
2) the PB smooshes down when I don't need it (heading back home)
3) the PB makes a nice backrest
4) the hard cooler makes a nice seat at camp

Yeah it's expensive and I'm New England frugal, but I'm a convert. Oh, and it comes in pink.

Excellent summary. I would add that there is a current sale going on with Polar Bear Coolers at their website with the coupon code "5150" which gets a 10% discount. (I'm not a vendor or financially related, just passing on a deal). During the winter they typically have a 2 for 1 sale.

Also, these little coolers are used to transport human organs which testifies to their ability to keep items cool for long periods of time under far more strict conditions that we have to endure.

Which is very handy for the harvesting surgeon if we have one of these on our donorcycles when we wreck.

Ways to keep food cold/frozen for a day or two _ wrap frozen items in al foil and then newspaper, stick in zip lock and pack in ice. Dry ice will keep newspaper wrapped stuff frozen for a couple of days. Buy it at Wally World.

I got an email from geoff at Polar Bear just today. He is offering 10% off for Spring Break.

Quote from the email below:

"Traveling for Spring Break? Don't forget to pack a Polar Bear Cooler. Order now and receive 10% off. Just use coupon code 5150 at Step 2 during check out. Or, call us at 888-438-7924."

I have both the 6&12pack coolers - worth every penny!!

Actually, they aren't that expensive - for a cooler that really works!

one way to cool stuff is to use a normal plastic water bottle and deep freeze is - takes more than one day for a 1,5 l bootle till it's really deep frozen.

Even in a mediocre cooler there will be a little ice left in the bottle the 3rd day.

Unless the plastic is absolute crap, the bottle will not crack due to the expansion when freezing.

Added benefit for many should be the water which you have to bring anyway in a lot of areas
