Refrigerated transportation

Finally cracked open the ice budget & attempted the 1st refrigerated transportation. This requires going both ways with ice blocks, significantly reducing range. 2 ice blocks were quite heavy, but it didn't show a significant increase in tire wear after 10.7 miles. Power consumption increased to 328mAh/mile. The weather started hot & got cold by the end. Sandwiched the salad between the ice blocks. The top ice block finished more melted than the bottom. The salad arrived still cold, which isn't very conclusive unless another test is done without ice, in the same weather. Ice cream definitely needs to be tested.

Whether ice on top or ice on the bottom is more effective is unclear. Most heat should get in from under the robot, but cold should travel down.
