comment Thinking about a road trip out West
Dispersed camping (just pulling off the road and pitching a tent) is legal on most National Forest lands out west. (But not National Parks.)

Interesting thought. Is this from practical experience? I have found that fighting dogs don't really care much for food. And tossing out a chunk of meat will just serve to create another dog pile as the rest of the team lunges for it.

I suggest a better question title like "What are my options for hiking the corridor of the Grand Canyon when the permits are already full?" or the like. This is the nature of your question, but the title is more general - and the answer to that is: Yes, there are alternatives to established campgrounds - just not in the corridor (where you want to hike).

comment Which will keep my food colder longer, draining the melted ice water, or leaving it in the cooler?
Awesome - great work - definite +1 for putting the effort in. 2 questions: 1) where was the thermometer? (Near the beer? On the bottom (submersed) or floating on the water?) 2) What was the ambient temperature doing outside during this period? And 3) Any interest in replicating about a dozen times or so? :) Thanks for the contribution

comment What are some things to keep in mind when stealth camping?
In Texas, I believe being on someone's property without permission puts them well within their rights to shoot you. (And Texans already don't much care for men who wear spandex.) <-- Note, this second bit is not just stereotyping, I grew up in Texas, and have bike toured / "stealth-camped" there.
