19 hours is 2-3 days of drive.

Don’t do it

My buddy owns a seafood shop that sends crawfish all around the country. They use Southwest Cargo to ship nationwide. I’d give them a call and see how they package it. Crawfish always come in fresh however they do it.

So, have them overnighted and save the hassle of a 19 hour straight drive.

I could see driving if buying AND paying shipping but you won't be.

Pack a cooler of food and beer and piss in the bottles and you could do it in less time.

Man up!

Why hose them down? They only need to stay cold (ice) and have oxygen to preserve them.

Just keep them cold and don't let them sit in pooled water for too long. 14 sacks would be tough to fit in ice chests in the bed of a pickup, so your best bet would be to do fr33manator said except for the hosing them down part.

19 hour drive is nothing for us south LA baws who remember hurricane evacuation the year before Katrina. Think it was Ivan. Left NOLA at noon, got to Houston the next morning just in time to get stuck in rush hour traffic.

uh...14 sacks is way too much. I'm assuming those 20 LA people are not all dudes. I've done lots of boils with 50+ people (mostly out of state) and usually estimate 5 lbs a person for LA people, and that's being generous for the females (unless I know they can eat more). I estimate 3 or less for out of state people.

You have enough for over 5 lbs a person for everyone, which will not happen.

But as you said...it's free so I guess it doesn't matter. But be prepared to cook several batches of crawfish that nobody eats.

10 sacks should be plenty, but if they are basically free then I guess who cares. What kind of set up will you have up there for the boil?

Anyway I like what Fr33 suggested.

In the hot summer, maybe, but there may be no other more practical way to do it unless he can fit enough ice chests in his truck.
