I love a good adventure. My perfect weekend looks like cutting out of work at noon, loading up the car, and high-tailing it out to the campsite.
And whenever I buy something, I try to buy only the absolute best.
When I was looking for the perfect cooler, I had trouble figuring out which brand was better than another. It seemed like I couldn’t get any reliable information.
With so many different brands, surely one had to be better than another, right?
