    Just wondering how you guys keep water for your employees and yourself. I have a Engel Deep Blue 80 quart it was expensive but it was worth it because it holds ice for a week. So what do you guys use ?

    I got a mid size coleman. We probably replace it every year from banging around the back of the truck. I actually dropped the skid steer bucket on the last one and smashed it. I have a small freezer in the garage that freezes blocks of ice every night(2liter bottles). They keep the cooler colder longer than cubes and much cheaper.

    Coolers like yeti and engel are worth every penny. You can lock them so no one can mess with your beer. Haha. http://www.engel-usa.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&category_id=2&flypage=vmj_genx.tpl&product_id=43&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=60&vmcchk=1&Itemid=60

    Those yeti look sweet, cool videos of product testing too, but kinda pricey.
