When you're out in the deep resesses of Powell, you just can run down to the local Kwiki mart for a blue squishy and a bag of ice!.
Seriously though, a great tip for long term cruising is to pack the cooler with Dry Ice wrapped in news paper. It lasts for a long time and doesn't sweat or leak because of Sublimation; Sublimation is the transition from the solid phase to the gas phase without passing through an intermediate liquid phase. In short, no water build up so it is optimal for use as a booster for your refrigerator too without flooding your floor. ;-) Be cautious though when handling it, always wear leather gloves and keep it wrapped in paper to extend its service life.
Cruise on oldno7!!

P.S. another good tip is to cover the cooler with a constantly wet towel to provide evaporative cooling, futher
extending the life of your frozen water ice/dry ice and more importantly, your COLD BEER!!
