Once he had the foil down tight he would put 8 or 10 layers of newspaper around it, wrap all of that in a quilt and put it in the trunk. They all piled in the car and drove 4 hrs to my Great Grandmas. She swears to this day no Thanksgiving turkey comes close to as good as those were.

So I'm thinking, preheat an ice chest with hot water, wrap in foil and layer a slug of newspaper and you should be good for hours.
Newspaper is a great insulator. When my uncle renovated the kitchen in his house where my mother was born, he found newspapers in the walls from the 1930s. That was the insulation.

I believe your mother learned a thing or two walking all that way uphill.
