I vote for this one. Big time.
The playa has huge thermal mass. Would take a radical change in weather, and time, to change this temperature out of the spec you gave.
No failure points (battery, electronics, etc.) which could fail and result in a temperature higher or lower than you stated as acceptable, except your storage vessel has to be water-proof against rain, etc., which a thermos is.
Somehow always in the shade. I'd add a two foot wide piece of foil-side bubble-wrap over top to ensure you keep the sun off so the nearby ground doesn't heat in the sun. If this was inside your hexayurt, ideal.
Once thing you should consider. What does your doctor say to do should the meds be subjected to a temperature higher or lower that the range you said, and for what time duration. Is it a case of they're ruined and are now poison, or ruined and you leave BM and come home to get a fresh dispense of the meds, or is it their potency is reduced but o.k. for the week, or is it _____________?Don't be guessing
: check with your doctor before you go.
Odd. No bears to watch in the dump. Oh well, lets go across the road & pick blueberries.
... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.
