Block Ice

Handy Tip: (hint hint Boneclave dudes)

Make your own blocks. Save a 1 gallon milk jug. Clean and fill with water about 7/8 of the way for ice expansion. Place in freezer. Once frozen you can cut open the plastic if you need or just leave it in the container.

1 trick to make it double duty is this. Use a clean spring water jug. Fill 7/8 with good drinkable water. Once frozen toss it in your cooler. As the camping trip progresses and the block melts, it turns into your last gallon of water. Double duty double pleasure!

Over and out.

Lefty

Good advice. Block ice lasts much longer than cubes. It works with the small bottles of springwater too, and some of the bottles are shaped so they will expand when the water freezes so you don't have to empty any water out first. You can also make flat ice blocks by freezing water in a plastic food storage container.
