I'm assuming that if you're bringing a freezer and a generator to run it (??) that you have a truck and/or trailer and can simply do the same?
Yes, we have a generator. It's interesting, that I never would have even thought about or considered running the generator in a moving vehicle. Don't ask me why, it just never crossed my mind as something that could or even should be done. I guess it sounded 'not safe' to me.
Now that I am thinking about it, I don't really know what would be more dangerous about carrying a running generator while driving than a generator that is not running.
We don't have a trailer--we're coming up in a 20' box truck. I would assume there are some implications about fumes running a generator in a closed truck. So now I'm thinking of options for ventilation--like maybe some type of hose that would run from the exhaust to outside the truck somehow???
We went to HD last night and actually had the opportunity to look closely at a chest freezer. The one we got is metal inside and the instructions say it will keep food frozen for 24 hours without power. So that sort of helps ease two of my concerns.
I am more confident that the metal lining won't be effected by dry ice, and 24 hours is more than enough time to get the ice cream to the playa. So I thinking that starting with everything frozen then adding some dry ice will be an adequate solution, if not over-kill.
