Oh! And that used plastic water bottle I mentioned in post #5 above? I prepare it this way: I crush it somewhat, fill it crushed, put the cap on tight, and freeze it crushed. Flatter like that, it rests behind my lower back, under my arm, behind my neck, or under my leg nicely. I keep it closed tight. When I get to another freezer, I just drop it in, closed and crushed... repeat... repeat... repeat. Low labor and almost no cost.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
