overnight shipping is prob. even more then 15 hours and they come bagged in a styrofoam ( spelling? ) cooler.
i suggest a 5 gallon home depot bucket if you can, pre-rinse it with water well first, make sure to get one of the $0.50 lids for it.
instead of spending $25 on a car converter, search for a battery powered air pump. drill a small hole in the lid and feed some hose through the hole, turn pump on, and things should go smoothly.
just dont stop mid trip to go sight seeing or for a long sit down dinner as to where the bucket can sit in a hot car. infact, running the air conditioning on the ride home may be wise too.
if your getting their rock and stuff, get another bucket and lid, put the rock into this bucket, fill with tank water as to where the rocks are covered. do not put live stock in bucket with rock. it will slosh around and crush anything living. this bucket doesnt need an air pump. just close the lid. mid trip, removing the lid and peeking on things is good as it will allow for a brief gas exchange. bringing a third bucket with just saltwater in it may not be a bad idea either if theres room for it. a 15 hour trip is a decent drive and it rarely hurts to plan and prepare for a disaster, and having that extra saltwater on hand may save something. chances of you needing to use it are slim, but its like having a triple A card, getting a flat but not having a cell phone to call them. lol
hope that helps some, and good luck.
