Nice of you all to chime in. Glad to see people are having success with some low-tech builds.

I want to be able to do two buckets at a time, and I'm tired of carting ice around...I'll probably end up going with a chest freezer/Ranco controller.

I don't want to relax. I'm too worried. But I will drink that homebrew.

I was just on the Polarware site as I'm considering a new brew kettle. Low and behold I just saw this "party barrel". At 31", I think it'd fit a 6.5 carboy with airlock would totally fit. You could probably drop a couple bottles of frozen water in there for a nice chamber. I wish I hadn't just bought an Igloo cube cooler to modify.
