I guess it comes from watching the water from the Animas pile up in Ridges Basin.
Water does run uphill in Durango, at great cost.
Breakfast martinis, not so much. Prefer a yeasty Belgian or chewy porter in the am.
Almost no ice left in the bottle this rainy evening. Considerable, perhaps half, left in the unsheathed block in the day cooler.
Physics doesn't change, but the cooler soup, laziness, having icy jugs to easily move from the main cooler to the day cooler, drunkenness, and jugged icewater on the last day says I'll be using jugs on trips that last less than 7 days. Slacking on the river is why I spent too much $$ for the IceeKool in the first place. Maybe I can make some of it back by not buying ice blocks at 2-3 bucks a pop.
I'm left with no doubt that longer trips and stretching ice requires attention to the drain.
On the other hand, collective wisdom is wasted if it only results in dumping ice at the takout.
