Im in texas so I think that awsome. I had a friend make almost the same thing except in a cheap Styrofoam ice chest and with a battery operated fan. He used in his tent on a summer camping trip.

Once upon a time...
I drove trucks for a living for a while (dumb for me), and my AC went out in summer running I-10 back and forth from San Antonio to L.A.  I'd buy a block of ice and stick it under the indoor air return--no ice chest or insulation, just a plastic box.  I got 66F out of the air vents, which made the 114F outside much more bearable.   8)

AJ, I think I'll make that cooler this weekend for my garage  :thanks:
