Where do the fruit and veggies go?

Postby lonebird » Tue Mar 27, 2007 7:35 pm

I love fresh fruit and veggies, but I find when I go camping I just don't know where to put them. Might get smushed in the cooler, might rot anywhere else. I have a five day cooler and a 2 day cooler I was thinking maybe pack the fresh produce in the smaller one? Any suggestions?

When we pack the cooler, we leave enough space on top to put a towel & then lay the fruit & vegies on top. I found it also helps keep the cooler ice last longer. I always take a 2nd cooler for drinks. That way you are not opening the main cooler all the time.

Don't eat the fruit! :lol:

But put the veggies on top, like Rainjer said! :o

Packed in a paper-towel-lined plastic pan, on top of everything else in the Igloo Extreme Cooler.

I don't like cold fruit... I put it in the picnic basket!!! But the veggies go on top a towel in the top of the cooler!

My cooler came with a tray that sits on top, out of the ice. We usually keep them there.
