Thread: Dry Ice

  1. #1

    Question Dry Ice

    Went last year, spent about $30 on ice. Does anyone know if dry ice is allowed on the camp grounds?
    Also, planning to arrive late Thursday night will they stop letting cars in at some point in the night?

    Yes, dry ice is allowed.

    Also, I suggest reading the FAQ and camping guide-Don't be that guy who doesn't know what he's doing..

    directly from the coachella FAQ page

    "Onsite camping opens Thursday, April 11, 2013, at 9:00am and closes on Monday, April 15, 2013 at noon. Early arrival is highly recommended. Cars can check in at 9am on Thursday until 2am, and starting at 9am FRI-Sun (until 11PM). 24 hours for pedestrians."

    Dry ice will freeze everything in your ice chest.

    This is a fact, I was going to mention that you shouldn't use dry ice unless you know what you are doing with it. Otherwise you can expect frozen beer and eggs all weekend long.

    Thanks for the heads up... I had heard to put dry ice at the bottom to keep your ice itself cold, and then put your stuff on top of that..

    Does "will freeze everything" still hold in that case?

    I wouldn't say it will freeze everything, but don't put your beer (or the beer you want to drink right away) on top of the dry ice. Wrap the dry ice in newspaper and just put what you don't want to use right away on top. Just choose wisely.

    create a layer stuff that you wouldn't mind freezing closest to the dry ice.. i.e. Popsicle, bottled water.. then add your other goodies. You tube has some good videos on this.

    It will make your fruit taste very nitrous-y. Not bad for you but it doesn't taste great.

    in addition to this throw corrugated cardboard between the dry ice and your stuff. otherwise your stuff might end up frozed to the dry ice.

    This is excellent advice. I put 10lbs of dry ice in the bottom of my cooler and then covered it and iced that over and my bottom layer of beer still froze.

    Best way to use dry ice is to have a separate large cooler that you just fill with bags of ice and then put dry ice blocks wrapped in tin foil on top. Open and close this as little as possible and you will have fresh ice all weekend as it melts off in your other cooler. Also a good place to store forzen meat, popsicles, ice cream, etc.

    This is your best bet. Also, keep water bottles in the dry ice container, then once a water bottle is frozen transfer them to the regular food cooler and use as "ice" that won't end up getting all your food wet. Once the water bottle melts either cycle back into the dry ice or drink the icy cold water.

    And to echo other comments, definitely don't put anything that isn't supposed to be frozen, esp fruit, in the dry ice cooler. Even if it is far away from the dry ice to not freeze, your food will definitely get "carbonated"

    How good of a cooler do you need in order to keep the dry ice frozen?

    I have one similar to this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Coleman-30...Liner/16539568 (soft plastic/cloth insulation with a hard thin plastic liner inside) and was thinking of just packing it half full of dry ice several days before arriving (long drive), do you think the dry ice would keep for more than a day or two, or is the cooler too thin for dry ice?

    Related, has anyone tried wrapping their cooler in blankets, etc? How much did that help?
