I'm just east of Colorado Springs, close enough to the city but still in the country. Bigger lots and lower sales taxes.

I spent 3 1/2 years in the land Down Under so I know plenty of Aussie slang, and I've almsot been thrown out of a bar by asking for a Foster's.

A rubber matt will typically keep most coolers from sliding around. Very simple and not permanent.

I have had an idea rolling around in my head about converting an old milk can into a cooler and maybe even a a place to store a few specialty-to-Stovebolt tools in the top of it.
I was thinking about cutting the bottom off of the milk can, and fabricating a cylindrical cooler made of stainless steel which just fits inside of the milk can.
I'd make it so that you could lift the can up, give it a half turn to expose a hole in the side of the cooler to reach in for a cold beverage.
I could make the tool compartment under the can lid.

I need to get one of those camera phones instead of my old flip because I miss out on some neat things. A customer brought his much modified 54 3100 by the shop that had a cooler with no tie downs sitting in a high dollar bed. When I remarked it could cause some scratches he told me to try to move it---it was rock solid. He had custom shaped a redwood base to the exact dimensions of the cooler bottom, installed Rivnuts in a bed cross member and bolted the cooler base with button head bolts through the factory bed rail holes. The cooler bottom and base had Velcro strips. He said the first go around he completely covered the bottom and base with with Velcro and nearly had to use a chain hoist to pull the cooler loose. With the cooler and base out the stainless button head bolts match the stainless carriage bolts in the bed rails. A quick (hard) tug would dislodge the cooler for cleaning. Thought it was a clever approach.

Evan, the flip phone reminds me of one of my female friends who has resisted an android phone for all the years that I have known her, 12 years until I bought her one 6 months ago. From time to time she comes to me wanting to learn new things on it. She goes camping with her 2 Husky dogs and her mother wanted pictures of her trips. Also, she is trying to get pictures of her dogs but of course, they won't stay still long enough. And all that to say, Evan, make the change. I use Tracfone and I have used LG phones for years and I have a LG4 with all the bells and whistle that $800 phone has for $150.00 from Amazon/ Tracfone.

You have to hold a cookie above the camera.
