Default transporting beer in keg

So I want to get some beer back to school with me. I've brewed it and it's in secondary right now. I've got a 14 hour drive.

Is it possible to put it in a keg with a little gas and it will be fine once I get it in the keezer under the right psi?

I put kegs in the back of my car pretty regularly. I try to stand them up, usually, and I put a towel down underneath just in case...

I picked up a couple of Corneys of beer and left them in my SUV for a week before putting them in my almost keezer. One keg lost it's pressure but the rest were fine. The beer in the depressured keg ended up being OK after a few days at 12psi. Before I did this I hit it with 30 PSI so I could find the leak.
