Heat packs have arrived

Posted by Tim Herron on March 5, 2012 at 10:10 AM

My Heat packs have arrived, and I have thuroly tested them.

One heat pack, in a 6x7x5 shipping box, with one pound of African Nightcrawlers and a remote themoniter.

I taped the box up, and put outside, in 34-32 deg overnight temps, with the wind blowing steady at 17mph and gusting at 20mph..........................I did that at 9pm Sun Night.

This morning the temp. was still 64 deg, at 6 am 

it is now 10:30 and I just saw it drop to 63 in the box. The wind is still blowing and they are in a shady spot on the deck (about 40 deg)

So, I am now ready to resume shipping to the States up North again...............Thank you all for your kind words of encouragment.

It is now going on 36 hours, and the temp, inside the box-is still at 63 deg.
SO, this box of nightcrawlers, has sat, outside, in 32 L to 45 H (day) for 36 hours never dipping below 63 deg.
