Transporting fragile stuff--specifically eggs!
Okay, so this probably seems like a pretty stupid question, but I'm having one hell of a time getting eggs home from the grocery store! The store is only about 5 miles away, and most of it is over perfectly smooth roads. However there's one quarter mile stretch where there are so many pot holes that it looks like some demented asphalt-munching squirrel got at the street or something. There's no way to avoid them all, and while I can dodge most of them there's at least four or five really big jolts no matter what I do.
I have an egg crate strapped to my rack (my setup is cheapus maximus
) and while this functions great for the rest of my groceries, my poor eggs just die when I hit the holes. I've tried wrapping them in soft things, but they still rattle around in the carton, hit each other, etc. I've also tried putting them in a backpack, but that turns out about the same.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Or shall I just resign myself to saccrificing my eggs to the gods of crummy streets forever?
