We are hauling precious cargo on this trip... 4 lbs of lobster. I spent more time packing these lobsters for the drive than I did our stuff.
Mr. Man at the Lobsters R Us down at the Wharf gave me express directions on how not to drown a lobster. See - these little sea creatures don't dig fresh water - unless they are getting bubbly boiled in it. I'm guessing they don't care much for it then either.
So - $6, in styrofoam cooler and gel packs, later - they are enjoying their journey across the Midwest.
