  1. We also chop our BBQ. And... BBQ is one specific food, not an event or something smother or grilled! Hot dogs... get them the Carolina way and taste them all day! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. John. Check out Nicks in Welcome NC. Just a couple of miles south of Winston Salem on old Highway 52. I don't think it's the best burger I have had, but they are great and priced great also! They are the best I have had in the Winston Salem area! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Well. Just returned to KG forum for the first time in a long time. When I landed and got home to update this thread I was no longer able to post since I wasn't a site supporter. For various reasons, I choose not to be. Just returned to the forum and noticed I could post again.... Basically, the cooler still had a few pieces of ice remaining and the beer was still cold. It's. it the performance I have seen with the Pelican or either of my r-tics (acquired since this thread started), but not bad for the money. Party on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Sorry. Don't see it. Guess I will have to dig out the laptop. Looks like the FB group is down too. Oh well. Was fun while it lasted! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Where do we find the info on becoming a site supporter? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Tried to post an update to a thread and didn't see it (using Tapatalk). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The suspense is killing me. Ha. Almost home! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Here is and update picture... Just kidding. I'm 1380 miles from the cooler. Honestly, I don't expect much if any ice, but we will see. I usually use ice from the fridge which is much more dense. Not sure how the "icehouse" ice will do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. The cooler contents before ice. (No golf, so just a few items for the test). Filled with ICE. $2 of ice from the ice dispenser station. High this weeks looks to be in the 90s all week. I scored a good spot in the deck, so will be in the shade. Will report back on Friday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Alright. "Cooled" the cooler this weekend. Had a few nights by the pool, and have het to take the pool fridge out. Have been using the sub z frequently. Here are a few pics from tonight "pre-chill". This is not an intentional pre-chill. This is strictly utility... Golf for Friday is up in the air. However, the cooler test will still happen. I'm planning on filling the cooler with ice (from one of those commercial ice dispensers) tomorrow morning. It will then be loaded in the back of the car and shuffled to CLT for my flight tomorrow. If I can remember, I will take a few shots when I park and post them. I will also take a few shots when I land on Friday. I don't need another cooler to keep ice that long. If this test "fails" then I won't be pissed. I will still have a $150 cooler that serves our needs of requiring minimal ice for baseball tournaments. Requiring minimal ice means that we can get by with this smaller cooler with plenty of food and drinks while sneaking it into the field. That's a win! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have heard / seen that Ozark Trail has a soft side "high performance cooler" as well, and want to get my hands on one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That is the new Nash Sub Z. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. As mentioned in the Igloo Sportsman thread, I will be doing a review / test of the Nash Sports Sub-Z cooler. It is a 23 quart capacity roto-molded cooler that looks very similar to a Yeti and RTic but claims to be made in the USA Brahe price (on their site) is $149. Ships immediately. The cooler can be found here.... http://www.nashmfg.com/sub-z/ I'm not planning on a very scientific test but rather a practical test for me. I'm headed to the Charlotte NC airport (CLT for those that are more familiar with airport codes that social media acronyms like me and headed to DFW and MFE) on Monday. I have a round of golf planned for the Charlotte area on Friday when I return. I plan to "pre-chill" the cooler on Sunday evening and will then empty the cooler and fill it with beer, water, and ice on Monday just before I leave for the airport. I have a 4:30 flight, and typically cut it close. The cooler will remain in my car (or one of the trucks) parked at CLT from Monday afternoon until Friday. I am scheduled to land on Friday at about 12:30 and will be heading to the course immediately upon landing. For those that don't fly out of CLT often, a late Monday flight usually means parking on the upper deck (in the sun), or using business valet to get a spot in a deck (since the normal deck fills up). I will probably opt for the business valet like usual, so the sun conditions are not yet determined. I will provide pictures of the packed cooler when I arrive at the airport for my flight, and when I arrive at the car after returning home. Some background.... I have several coolers.... Some seen here... They each have their place, and all of them get used. The Nash Sub-Z was purchased to replace the igloo sportsman 20 that was stolen over Memorial Day weekend at Ocean Lakes campground in Myrtle Beach... Luckily it contained only a few Gatorades and no beer. Who steels a cooler with no beer? I needed to replace the igloo as we spend allot of time at baseball tournaments where coolers are "discouraged" and therefore the smaller the better. With these "high performance" coolers, you can pack enough food and drinks with minimal ice while still fitting discretely in the "wagon" (fellow travel baseball parents will know the wagon). The igloo did a great job. Finding something to replace it that wasn't named after the snow monster in Rudolph and priced like an elephant tusk was important. I could have purchased another igloo sportsman from Sam's but was pissed with the change to the plastic handle. I could have purchased an RTic, but we play baseball most weekends except Christmas which is most likely when it would be delivered. The Nash was readily available and I could have it quick enough to please me. Also, I enjoy buying the "other guys" products in all categories and sharing positive results. This won't be a scientific test. It will simply show the ice level on Monday and Friday. The worst that can happen is the beer is warm and I have to either skip golf (can't play without beer) or purchase some ice and / or cold beer on the way to the course. Of course, the drain plug could leak and soak the carpet in the car, but I have already verified that it seals and if I am being honest, warm beer is really allot worse than that. More to come in the next few days.... I will snap some close up pictures of the cooler and obviously share the results. In the mean time, "stay cool"! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks! I will try that soon. Gonna have to wait a few days. The CFO will kill me if ups delivers another cooler! Between the Pelican, the RTic, and now the Nash.... She may flip! She still doesn't know about the Nash yet, but will when we go out to the pool this evening as I have already stocked it with beer! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have tried to find them. I don't need a new cooler (now), but I enjoy trying the lower cost stuff. If I could find the big one before we go to the outer banks at the end of the month I would get it. I hope to need it for fish! Anxiously awaiting the Sub Z to be delivered today. I will try to do a formal review of it and the RTic Softpak in the next week or so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
