I remember my father took me to a self-serve iceing machine on Canterbury rd Canterbury next to Canterbury theatre, put his 2 shillings in and an ice-block came out the shute, and another one, and another one, and another one

laughing my head off, they just kept coming until it ran out, there were blocks of ice all over the path, ppl were stopping to pick them up for free, not bad for 2 bob.

Ben,

I wanted a supply of block ice to load the icebox up on each camping trip.
The ice works where I bought it was circulating it that quick that it wasn't frozen solid. (ie melted too quick)

I bought a small second hand freezer and now make my own.

I use a couple of plastic containers that are each about half the size of my icebox and the resulting block ice I get from them last about five days or so in my Evakool .
I place the block ice on the bottom, load up the icebox with the essentials and top up with enough crushed ice to enclose the precious contents.

I also now have a freezer for other things I never thought I needed one for.

A loaf of bread is fully used as we freeze it and just take out a couple of slices as required for continuous "fresh bread".

I have also tried dry ice but find the block ice lasts longer.

Bill.

This is what I do and I find that if your freeze the ice for at least 2 months, it lasts a lot longer.

Block ice is great, I bought a block in Moama NSW and then headed up to Wilcannia across to Louth & Bourke then to Lightning ridge and Gulgong over a 7 day trip and when I got home I still had a small block about 100mm x 20mm, that was in a 60 ltr Tropicool ice box in warm conditions, i'm impressed.

I normally freeze a 4ltr plastic bottle of water with a dash of salt in it, and they last a loooong time too, the salt helps keep it frozen longer. Even in summer they will last 4-5 days easy. Sometimes I carry a spare one in the freezer (if space allows) for later on longer trips.

Block ice is the best, Last us for a week (6days) in the evakool and with small pieces left after that time. We use the weaco for keeping stuff frozen. I freeze them in the foam 6 pack, I line it with plastic and freeze for a week. Then when I go to use them I just run some hot water down the inside of the esky and it comes out of the foam. Then I run some more hot water just enough to get the plastic off, lay them across the bottom of the evakool (90L) and load it up. Anything that needs to be cooled eg drink cans etc I wack in the weaco for a bit to cool down first then put in evakool works for us.. Regards Steve
