Frugal will be the right word to use. Will a cheap ass be able to afford a 110 crew cab, likes fine watch(es), likes fine dining, likes fine wine, loves hunting & traveling, etc etc etc

OK frugal it is.


Here is a comparison of the Yeti's and the Pelicans. Actuall size comparision is interesting. I like the Made in USA the most.

Pelican makes some good stuff, but I'll stick with YETI when it comes to coolers! I've got several and the ice retention is really good, but more so you can't mess them up. Here's a link to Triple C Welding's Facebook. They make all kinds of custom accessories including this basket to hold a cooler. Good Stuff!

So these are the last two email updates that I've had on these coolers. I have to say the guy has kept my up to speed!

Monday) I talked with production today and as soon as they are being made they are being shipped to the distribution facilities, so at this point the very first of the coolers are on there way and we should receive them in stock between 8/29 - 9/3 from the information i was able to gather. I am working on confirming this with one last source.

As soon as i am able to confirm an accurate date i will let you know.

Thanks,
Derek

Yesterday) Update is pretty vague but according to the west coast planning manager a small number of coolers will be dropping for shipment by the end of this week. So we should have a limited number of coolers available by 9/7. It sounds like we will be receiving them in very small quantity shipments for the next few months.

If you would like i can simply put you in the system so if they come in you have one reserved. If the coolers don't come in time then we simply cancel the order, no payment in advance needed.

Let me know if you have any questions, hope this at least helps a little!

Thanks,
Derek

Well I'm glad I didn't cancel the other order. Pelican Direct has the coolers now and Foamerica won't have them for a week. The trouble is Pelican Direct (not to be confused with Pelican) will only sell it for $233.00 and won't go to Foamerica's price of $178.00. Normally you know I would say screw it, but for $40.00 I'll wait a week!
