Mammoth was interesting in that I had to lug my ice chest about 50 yards to the room. They recommended keeping the ice chest with food in the room due to the bears. At the time I was wishing I had wheels on it.


why do you need to lug an ice chest when you stay at a hotel???



Read the second sentence - there are bears at Mammoth Lake.

Coolers in the back of open pickups (and sometimes even in the back seat of sedans) are an open invitation for bear damage. Even without food in the cooler, the odor is still there.

Ever see the door frames/windows of a vehicle bent outward at 90 deg? Usually means that a bear saw something inside that he wanted .....

"...why do you need a cooler in the USA???"

That's an easy one. To keep things COLD, silly. When travelling it's nice to have a cool one handy or a snack, or a sammich when there's no eateries close when you want a snack or sumpin'. Can you be any more condescending with your attitude? You really should be in a different kind of work, pal.




Everything fun in life is either illegal, immoral or fattening. I've had a lot of fun.

you never NEED a cooler in the car unless you are camping...
beer is kinda dangerous

every 2-3 hours you stop and gas up...lots of drinks and food there if you REALLY need it

can't you wait for lunch or dinner?
eat at a regular place?
you are on vacation

and someone that can't tell me his name isn't "my pal"


You're right about the 'pal' part, but it's the only thing you're right about. I don't drink beer on the road, but I do like a pop or an iced tea, or even a cold drink of water, especially if it's a long drive. As a rule i always have at least a medium Oscar cooler in my vehicle when travelling just because... can also accommodate minor items for storage too. And, when having to pay for lodging (not 'camping') sometimes it's a vacation budget-stretcher to build a sammich on the road. Just because you're too high and mighty doesn't mean the rest of the world has to march to your cadence. BTW, how's the air up there on that horse?

I always have a cooler in my vehicle with cold drinks and snack stuff. On some of the trails at Death Valley, the Mojave Road and the No Wimp Trail there are no restaurants to eat at. Besides it's fun to stop for a snack and cold one at a really beautiful place along the way. Bob and Susan need to get out more and see the rest of the country and not be coup'd up in a hotel for so long.
