this isn't exactly a shipping question, but it seemed the most fitting place to put it. I'm curious what other people do to transport there animals home from shows, especially during chilly or cold weather. I don't usually go to many shows in the fall or winter.
In the morning I'll be going to the Hamburg Pa reptile show, and most likely will have to park a distance away (this show has gotten insane since I started going 13 years ago).The temps will probably be in the high 50's when I leave and it looks like it will be very windy also. so, I'll probably have a 5 or so minute walk to the car and then some more time till my 15 year old car heats up. I'm thinking a cooler bag inside a hard cooler would be one way to go.
At the cold weather shows I have been to I have seen plenty of people walking out into the cold with deli cups in hand, which I would think adds allot of unneeded stress on the animal.
