    2E49BBDC-40DE-4910-9A57-5454990D2409.jpeg So I just found a thermos in my garage that I last used the final year I duck hunted seriously, probably 5-6 years ago. It still has liquid in it, which would be hot chocolate because I didn’t drink coffee back then. Free to a good home, I’ll even throw in the hot chocolate and wash the outside off. PM me to claim your new thermos.

    When a thermos is so nasty that you’d rather give it away than clean it.

    You realize there are laws against shipping hazardous waste, right?

    You’re assuming it’s nasty. There’s a decent shot that it’s still lukewarm chocolate.

    My experience is with 11 month old hot chocolate.
    When opened the liquid inside was the same temperatures as the decoys which were in the same bag,.. frozen,.. no longer luke warm. But my daughter said she had drank half the year before, it appeared as if none of the chocolate had evaporated

    Your experience may be different after four or five years

    Maybe the Russians would pay you for it. Cheaper than radioactive dust.

    Never clean it, and only use with with coffee and baileys. That residual chocolate sludge will give you a great flavor for years. Just seasoning is all.

    Heck, it will clean up fine.
    Wash it out, add a 1 cup of bleach and boiling water and let it sit for another 5-6 year and it will be as good as new.:yes:tu

    Why in the hell don't you take your kids hunting? I just don't get that.:scratch

    You're aware the ideal temperature range for bacteral growth is 41 deg F to 140 deg F, right?
    You need to pour boiling water down that thing to get it usable....

    Real duck hunters don't wear underwear.
