That's why there is always a layer of "emergency chili" cans in the bottom of my dry box.
My personal favorite was watching someone pull a ziplock bag full of raw chicken out of their, ahem, cooler. It was a gallon size bag so I figure it was about a half gallon of cooler water and milk that I watched drain out of the bag.
Save your leftovers and bring a can of chili or stew and a couple of packs of oatmeal per day.
Because sometimes milk chicken happens and I wasn't touching a thing that came out of that cooler for the rest of the trip.
Another stand out was an otherwise great guy that brought 4 loaves of bread and four packs of lunch meat for 16 people over a week.
Again, always treat leftovers like gold.
