Default Transporting 2 Corneys - Ideas?

I am taking two corneys full of the good stuff (already chilled to about 43) on a 5 hour trip. I would prefer not to have to buy a trashcan to keep them cold along the way...just another cost.


For a 5 hour trip, is it ok to not put it on ice, then throw it on ice and serve when I get there? What other clever ways have you done this to serve soon (tie a trash bag with ice around it)

On Deck: El Jefe Bavarian Weizen
Primary 1: None
Primary 2: None
Secondary: None
Bottles: California Pale Ale
Keg 1: Nugget Nectar Clone
Keg 2: Dogfish Head 60 Min Clone

Good question. I'll be haluling some kegs to Denver (6 hours away) in the near future and was wondering the same thing.

Although it should be obvious, watch what you put them on. I buckled a few into my back seat. The infamous black gunk is now all over my tan leather... I should try to clean that today.

I put one in a round igloo cooler minus the lid (my old mt), added some ice and wrapped it in a blanket. Another I wrapped in my wifes exercise mat, then a blanket. About a 6 hour trip, they both did ok.
