Cool Let me give you a story, told with quotes

This is from this year's CES in Vegas:

http://www.cnn.com/2008/TECH/01/11/g....ap/index.html

"What's the point of relaxing at the lake or campground if you get sore lugging a packed cooler of drinks? That's where the $499 Cruzin Cooler comes in.

"It's the world's first motorized, rideable ice chest," said Charles Pennington, director of national retail accounts for Cruzin Cooler LLC.

The Cruzin Cooler comes with a padded seat for the rider and an electric or gas motor. It can hold 27 12-ounce cans, but you can pack more in a $149 trailer cooler that hooks onto the motorized lead cooler. You supply your own ice.

An ice chest/scooter looked totally out of place at the electronics show. But Pennington noted that the product actually is ridiculous in any setting -- which is why people want it. The company has sold 40,000, he said.

Two of the coolers' specs caught our attention. One is that the driver can weigh up to 300 pounds. The other is how fast the Cruzin Cooler can cruise.

"Fourteen miles per hour," Pennington said. "Which is haulin' *** on an ice chest."

thats funny, a friend and i were talking about making a motorized cooler while carrying a cooler filled with near 100lbs of live rock about 1/4 mile , uphill, wearing our wetsuits, and he had a dislocated shoulder. really could have used one at that point.
