Default Storing Hops

I searched the posts and could not find this although I can't imagine it not already being discussed. My situtation is:
My closest homebrew shop is about 1.5 hours away. What is this best way to store hops for 3-4 months? And, how long will the hops stay fresh with those methods?

Thanks again for all your help!

You should be able to buy the hops in oxygen/light blocking bags and then you just freeze them.

I put a layer of ice in a small cooler than my bags of hops on top of this followed by more ice. Then this goes in the freezer, so when they freezer cycle goes into effect to defrost the freezer(Heating up) my hops still stay very cold.
