I am heading to the mountains in a couple of weeks for the weekend and am considering taking the egg along. How do you guys move your egg for competitions/trips etc.?
I drive a pick-up so I have the room..just don't want to break anything.

    A lot of us use something like this.



    But maybe without the "wings" and "legs."

    A sturdy cardboard box will work too.

    Hi there! what size do you have? we travel with ours all the time and they all ride differently. the large we take the guts out of and strap in the back of the truck. we have a roll of pool liner insulation that we use as a pad. some of the guts and tools are packed back inside or the bag of lump goes in there sometimes. the rest is packed into a box with lots of padding. the med will ride that way too. the small we have a carrier for it, it doubles as a table when we get where we are going.
    and the mini is just tossed on the floor of the car or in a box with towels around it.
    our one old camper is a Scotty and has a recessed floor. it is perfect for holding eggs. but only the small or the mini as the door is NARROW LOL.
    have eggs will travel :) Julie

    What material did you use as a carrier for the small? It looks like granite or corian?

    I transport like many others. Mine doesn't have any neat chicken feet.

    We could easily fix that...
