Moving.. Taking fish with me

It's not a far trip.. Only and hour and 15 to an hour and half with traffic.. I have 10 fish and a 29 gallon tank. What should I do to make this safely for my fish!? I have a week before I leave college for the summer.. So what should I do!? Thanks guys!

Get a couple of bucket, devide the fish up between the two. Try to save atleast 75% of the water. Make sure you keep the filter media wet. If you cant save the water then make sure you acclimate them again. Its only a hour in a half drive so i would not worry about air stone. Good luck and safe travels

Thanks. Yeah, that's what I was going to do. I'm going to try to save as much water as I can with some water jugs and what not. I didn't think I'd need an air stone and the temp shouldn't be a problem. Just hope they're ready to embark! Thanks again!

Forgot to say this. If you have any plants, toss a few in each of the buckets so they feel they have a place to hide
