    Default Moving the freezer stash

    Next week we are moving across the state and I'm going to have to move the freezer stash. It's going to be out of the freezer for at least 8 hours and sitting in my car in 90+ degree heat. Anyone have any tips??? I'm thinking the heat is going to be a real issue. I worked really hard to get that stash and I don't want to lose it!

    I would get dry ice and put it all in a big cooler. With a LOT of dry ice.

    Yup, lots of dry ice for sure, I would also add extra insulation to your bags of milk by wrapping them in something like newspaper.

    Thanks for the tips! If I have any bubble wrap leftover, I might try wrapping them in that.
