DH freezes the small bottles of emptied Simply Lemonade, filled with water, and takes those in his lunch box which is insulated. They last longer than the blue packs, and you have cold water when they thaw. You also won't have to drag them around you when they have thawed. We use them many, many times.

For traveling, this might be the ticket. Just a thought.....

That's a good idea. I do something similar when I travel by car in the summer to help keep a dog cool--I freeze 2 l. bottles of water and put those in the crate with the dog. As they thaw, I can either drink the water or give the water to the dog (although I usually have more than enough water for the dog to begin with). Now that I no longer have a dog to join me on my travels, I'm taking the train. Flying is much too complicated (to get to where my parents are in Northern MN from where I am in SE ON).
