    My son and I will be traveling from the South out to Montana via Spirit of New Orleans --> Empire Builder. We will have a sleeper. His medication has to be kept refrigerated. An ice pack won't last all 50 hours. Does anyone have experience with this and/or recommendations?

    I have carried allergy vials from Dr's office across the country to a summer destination. Had a small cooler and SCA always had ice for me.

    I have a insulated foil zip-lock type bag that the SCA fills with ice for me each morning. I then put that in a small (6 pack size) soft sided cooler bag. (I use the foil bag to minimize the effects of melting ice on the other items in the cooler bag.)
