How To Keep Turkey Skin Crispy When Traveling?

I'm cooking a turkey breast for Thanksgiving...
only problem is that I am taking it to our hosts house, which will be about a 40 minute drive. How do I keep the skin crispy? Obviously, I'll need to put tinfoil over the roaster/dish that I bake the turkey in, and I wonder if the skin will just get "soggy".
Any ideas?

I'll also be making the gravy....too bad I don't have a thermos to take that in, lol.

  1. The only way I can think of doing it is to prebake the breast covered (so it does not brown) then finish it off at the host's house. However, this might be awkward and I'm not sure if this would overbake the breast and make it dry. You could also try roasting it as normal then putting it under the broiler to reheat at the host's house?
