No sir, it is not. As of tonight, we are no longer using the freezer or the fridge in the camper. We killed it and turned off the propane tanks a couple of days ago. One tank is empty, and we have been using the other to cook with in the van until we get one of these 1 gallon cylinders. The last item in the freezer was finally thawed today and we ate it for dinner. It was a big, thick, juicy strip steak. It was a nice end to a our life of “fridging it”.
We are talking about getting one of these WAECO CoolFreeze compressor fridge/freezer and running it via our solar and battery bank. I want to put it off though to see what it would be like to live without refrigeration and/or a cooler for at least a couple of months. We are either going to be eating super fresh, super canned, or grains and legumes. Those who know me know that I like my dairy, meat and produce and that we make almost everything from scratch. It’s going to be a big, interesting change. It should be fun.
In other news, we had a nice day. We went to a swap meet in town, drove the van around on BLM land and chilled at the lake.
