CALIFORNIA – A fiery incident in the back of a truck bed is further proof that the Expedition Cooler is the toughest cooler under the blistering desert sun.
The team at Off-Road Assassin was caravanning back to Palm Springs from a race in Lucerne Valley when a pit crew member saw embers and smoke jumping out of the truck bed. He pulled over and extinguished the flames. Everything in the truck bed – chairs, canopy, gear and an Expedition Cooler – was charred to a crisp.
After the truck finally made it back to the shop, the team examined the damage. Curious (and also thirsty), Steven Olsewski grabbed a hammer and chisel. With determination, he cracked the lid off the badly damaged cooler.
“To everyone’s amazement, the contents of the cooler inside were still ok, cold, and still had a couple of pieces of ice. If you had told me that the cooler would go through a fire and then still have ice in it, I would have told you that you were crazy,” according to his account of the fire-proof cooler.
