We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Yep! I got one too. We need it for long road trips (several days or more). It works great for keeping frozen things frozen (fish) while on the road for a few days. It will also keep ice cream frozen all day until the lid starts to be opened and closed. Kids had the Costco imitation and it was not nearly as good, but it was just as heavy ! We have a small Coleman and it is good for a few hours and that's all. There is a difference!
They are definitely a status symbol. People put Yeti bumper stickers on their cars. And I think everyone is aware of the only reason you put bumper stickers on your car is to tell strangers something you think is good about yourself
