We recently returned from a 14-day road trip through 6 states to 14 National Park sites and the entire trip was absolutely amazing except for one thing...our cooler. The cooler we had on the trip drove me insane. I felt like most of our time was being spent stopping at grocery stores and gas stations to get ice. I didn't know it was possible for ice to melt that fast when it was only 40 degrees outside some days. UGH!!! Thankfully during our trip, I received an email from our friends at Best Buy asking if we wanted to test out the Otterbox Outdoor Gear that is available at Best Buy.
You guys I might have squealed in excitement so much that John was worried about what was wrong with me. Just knowing that our cooler worries were coming to an end was such a relieve. Granted we still needed to make it home without throwing our old cooler out the back of the Jeep and running over it. LOL! Thankfully we made it home without any throwing of coolers or screaming at it too much. The final few days we just emptied it and picked up tea along the way. We were over the hassle of trying to keep it cold and not making a mess all over the place.
Enough about our old cooler we HAVE TO TALK about the Otterbox Outdoor Gear and why we all need it in our lives! You know I love Best Buy with my entire heart and I love that they are carrying a ton of amazing products that I need in my life.
We have to talk about how amazing this Otterbox Venture 45-Quart Cooler is and why you need it in your life!!!! First, let us talk about that it is ultra-bear resistant. If you plan on spending time in the woods or other areas that are bear inhabited this cooler is ready for you. I try to not get on first-name basis with bears but having a Park Ranger husband somedays that wish is not granted. Thankfully I don't have to worry about this cooler that my food is going to draw in Yogi Bear to have lunch with us.
I also LOVE the accessories you can get for the Otterbox Venture. One of the issues we had on the road trip was wanting to keep certain food away from the ice but still cold. There is nothing like finding your package of cheese has opened overnight and become a watery gooey mess. Not a moment I want to have again if at all possible. With the OtterBox - Separator for Venture Coolers you can divide the 45 quart or 65-quart coolers into three sections if needed. This is a great way to separate specific items in your cooler and keep things cool and dry.
Can we take a moment and get real with each other....there are nights while out camping or on a road trip that you just need a nice cool drink or two. It has been one of those days and you would literally walk miles to get a nice martini well now you don't have to hike more than a few feet to grab your OtterBox Shaker Lid and your Elevation 20 tumbler along with a few ingredients from the cooler and you can put your feet up, take a break and sip on an ice cold beverage of choice.
Personally, I think road trip martinis may become a thing soon and I am going to have to work on some fantastic new road trip and camping cocktail drinks to share with everyone asap. I hope you don't mind if I taste test a few of them ahead of time just to make sure they are amazing.
It is time to head to your local Best Buy or visit BestBuy.com and find even more reasons why you need the Otterbox Venture Coolers in your life. From keeping Yogi Bear away to sipping on a fine martini these are just a couple of the cool things this cooler will bring into your life.
