Default 92 Camry AC Cooling Erratic

I have a '92 Camry LE , 6cyl, with some 237,000 miles on it. AC blows
plenty cold sometimes, then other times will suddenly stop and start
blowing warm. I might shut it off for a few hours and then it might
start blowin cold again. Never know which it is going to be. Hate to
take long trips in the summertime, cause I never know when suddenly it
might stop blowing cold.

Any thoughts?

If the system stops cooling a while after it has been running, you may have
a restriction somewhere that freezes during use and then melts when you cut
off the system. That usually happens in the orifice tube. But, with 237k,
there may be other issues. Take it to someone who know something and they
should be able to tell you in less than an hour.

No - It cannot be a leak. If the Freon leaked out, it would not suddenly
get back into the system and start working again.
Check to see if there is some clogging of the evaporator. If the airflow
is restricted across the evap unit, the system will cool quite nicely until
moisture freezes on the evap coils and then - Boom - it stops working.

Obviously, this isn't a leak. I had the same problem with my '89 MR2.
It only had 140,000 miles on it. I suspected that there was moisture
in the system that was freezing when it got too cold and would work
again once it thawed. I had the whole system vacuumed and then
changed the receiver/dryer myself. I then had it charged with freon
and AC oil. It never gave me the same problems. I still don't know
to this day if my theory was correct. Nonetheless, the actions I took
fixed the problem somehow.
