It will be a long time before I travel with this, but I wanted to bounce some ideas off you guys for transporting the blackstone and see what you think.
The main body, even with nothing in it, is heavy. This doesn't happen much with goods made in China, but I think they went with too thick of a gauge of metal for the outer shell. It's also really unwieldy. I'm contemplating attaching a strap to the handles so I can take the weight on a shoulder. Just about everything else can go in the car lose, with the exception of the stones, which will probably need to go on a seat so they're protected.
I'm not sure how to travel with hot stones after the event, but, thankfully, the stones are pretty thin, so perhaps they can cool to the touch after an hour or two. I believe wool is good to around 500, and has a good r value, so perhaps I'll let the stones cool to 300 and put them on a wool blanket.
