offline2004 is on a distinguished road
4 bags of ice/ weekend at $2/bag = $8

$1500/$8 = 187 weekends

187 weekends/15 weekends a year = $12 years of Ice.

I think I might be sticking to ice!!!

Thanks!

Matt

Offiline-

They do have smaller, less expensive units... and not having to remember the ice, and having to skip that part of prepping for the weekend, as well as the time you save might add up to make buying a smaller unit worthwhile.

If you figure that it takes you a half-hour to get the four bags of ice, and the amount of time you spend cleaning up after it all melts.. and multiply that by what you normally make an hour... the smaller units may make more sense than not... besides, they're awfully convenient... and not having to empty and re-load the ice box every weekend isn't even included in that yet...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
