I must be dyslexic. I read this as "...we spotted this old rusty guy on his can..."

I saw you too while I was airing up my tires from a dirt side track off the pass between Searles and Saline valleys on my Goler Canyon Ride. Thanks for the pic!

Cheers,

I like your cooler... good idea. We've discovered to cool beer quickly, mix equal parts by volume of ice and water so it makes a slurry, and insert the warm beer. It takes less than 8 minutes to get the beer to 32°F (0°C). I work in a materials testing lab and we tested cooling beverages on a lark...
Yes, we even inserted T-type thermocouples to log temperatures with a Labview data acquisition setup and a laptop. It was repeatable, so good science was used.

Maybe I should renew my Labview license at work so I can monkey around with stuff like that!
