Put it in a box, deposit at your nearest UPS, and ship away. You're not going to hurt it, it's not too heavy, and ship it ground - it won't cost too much. I'm guessing $20 or $30 max to ship anywhere. I get boxes with 3 corny kegs, approx. the same weight and size. Shipping was $13.

*edit* I just picked up my pony keggle - it's maybe 25lbs. Just checked UPS - that's approx $15 to the east coast and $30 to the west.
