Yeti and Me – and Cosmo

So this happened yesterday:

So far, my experience with Yeti has been through tumblers and other people’s coolers.  After working with the team at Yeti over the past few weeks, it only solidifies that these folks know what they are doing.  I’ve got all sorts of ideas of how I’m going to use this Yeti.  Be on the lookout over the last couple of months.

Speaking of using Yetis, please check out this video they posted about some of the most amazing fly fishing in the world:


I looked up the trip, which is hosted by Alphonse Fishing Company (their website and social media is outstanding).  They are the creme de la creme of fishing guides, so keep that in mind when losing yourself in their website.  To go out to the Seychelles for a week long fishing trip is roughly $14K, and you have to get yourself to Mahe (SEZ).  From Atlanta (ATL) it’s a ~$3000 flight, and it takes about 27 hours one way.

Add all that up and watch the video again.

Mrs. RCS is in.  We’re starting to save right now.

    Yeti coolers are terrific. I’ve had the Yeti 65qt since 2009 and it really has been worth the cost and the weight. The following year I bought a Yeti “Roadie” 20qt for beach duty and it’s been a great addition. I can camp for 5 days with beer and water in the big cooler, and food in the Roadie, and never need to find more ice the whole time. One trick that seriously works is to pre-chill your Yeti prior to loading it up. Use ice from the fridge to get the cooler cold, then dump it out and add your drinks and fresh ice to the top and you’ll be in business.

    Just in the last year I’ve received the Yeti tumblers, the tall and short ones, and a can Koozie. Mixed reviews on these items so far. To be honest, I don’t carry around a beer long enough for it to get warm anyway, so the screw top can cooler is a bit of overkill. The tall boy tumbler with the plastic top is nice for use in the car.

    I have the same setup as NEM with a 65 and 20. If I could have done it all over again I would have gone with a 50 instead of the 65 due to a smaller footprint and taller cooler. Can’t go wrong with any of them, great coolers. Glad I got mine years ago before the price increase.
