When I was an 'active' stove collector I really wanted a paraffin/kerosene fridge, popular in parts of the USA and Australia I never did find one in the UK Still made but quite expensive https://www.lehmans.com/product/dometic-kerosene-refrigerator/refrigerators-freezers
That 12V/240V fridge must be like te 12V/117V "Coolatron" fridge boxes that travelers use here.
Just about have a hernia in hot weather.
No substitute for bigger & better but make-do on a trip just fine.
I have to set the record straight. I misspoke yesterday. This is what happens when one starts to get old.
Each battery is about 140 pounds and there are 2 cells to a plywood box. So there were only 6 battery boxes weighing roughly 280 pounds plus the weight of the box that had to be flown in and manhandled, not 12. Sorry about that. Still a brutal endeavor.
I wasn't too concerned with battery cracking since they were in a heavy plywood box with rope handles. It sounds like you have a challenge moving stuff yourself. Nothing is easy, is it? Take care! Ron
I'm off the boat these days, though we still own it ('we' own it, but guess who does all the maintenance?).
Were those battery boxes taken in one flight on a float plane? That's some load? I bet the pilot was, um, careful, with their fuel calculations.
Yes, one load. The Twin Otter is a serious bush plane. You can check out inthewilderness.net The first post has a picture of the Twin Otter and under the "Cool Videos" there is a youtube video of float plane travel you might get a kick out of. But it gives you an idea of just how big the plane is.
