Has anyone ever tried using dry ice to keep things frozen for camping? Does this work? Could I be handing out popsicles and ice cream sandwiches all festival long? Because that would rule.

As I rule I don't fuck with or around dry ice. I don't touch it, use it, or otherwise. People think that is immensely cool ... trendy to put in your drinks, great to use for Halloween, etc. It won't be so great when someone's face is burned off.

why would you put it anywhere remotely close to your face?

I don't know. Why don't you ask the owners of the trendy Rio Voodoo Lounge? They're the ones with the signature drink that INCLUDES DRY ICE inside of it.

I have not ever been to any bars or clubs that serve drinks with dry ice. Clearly I am not in-the-know enough.

For the record I have no intention of putting dry ice next to my face or otherwise making contact with dry ice without proper protection. But I do like the idea of having a way to keep things frozen. Even if I don't try it for this Coachella because I'm probably not camping.

You can carbonate food with dry ice. Try it with fruit, it gets fizzy.

Craziness. I'm not sure I'd want a fizzy apple. Maybe grapes though. Fizzy grapes would probably be pretty good.

I think fizzy watermelon would be pretty good. Or fizzy strawberries.

Ohhh yes fizzy watermelon definitely.

Could you infuse a fizzy watermelon with vodka or would it lose its fizziness?

I'm not sure. I don't remember my organic chemistry well enough to predict what would happen.

I think this may call for some experimentation.


(Watch me burn my hands off only to have Delta say I told you so.)

You should bring alot of dry ice and cue up Europe's "The Final Countdown" to play every time to leave your tent in a cloud of majestic smoke.

Lasers too, if you have any.

I wondered about dry ice after this year, too... I'm going to try it next year. Seems like it basically solves the biggest problem of regular ice, namely that you have to keep dealing with the water it turns into.

I doesnt work, i bought two 10 pounds blocks and by saturday morning they were dissolved. I mean maybe if you buy more but it ends up being the same since dry ice is more expensive.

Courtney~Yeah, the Popsicle idea would be huge, fizzy watermelon and grapes too...So huge in fact, and not to burst your grapes, but the fact that 60,000 people a day will want atleast one if not more of your tasty treats...( Imagine 180,000 Popsicles each day...EPIC! That's alot of dry fucking ice we're talking about and Delta's right, (Yes, I just said that!) Dry Ice isn't to be played with lightly... (Hmmm, but fizzy grapes...)
