Yes it is, sanitize the cap. Be careful moving that full carboy, use a plastic milk crate if you can get one.

I don't have a scientific answer for you, but if it were me I would probably just go ahead an pitch the yeast. I don't think it would hurt to do either, though...

I'd pitch the yeast too. We do this all the time on AHA big brew days, and group brews- travelling with our brews after brewing. Just consider any sloshing extra oxygentaion. Just use a regular airlock.

In that case pitch before you leave unless you're making a huge beer. With big beers it is recommended that you give more oxygen within 24 hours.

But if it's normal grav, pitch in the morning or before you leave.

I see this as an opportunity to fully mix in your yeast with no effort required!

Thanks for the help I will add the yeast before I leave sounds like the best option

Exactly...drive fast, take sharp turns, and find some bumpy roads

This would be the perfect solution for extract brewers who top off.
