EBM storage question

Hi everyone, I am currently expressing for my DD following my return to work part-time. Tomorrow I will need to express while out and about - I've worked out the when and where, but not quite sure what to do with my milk! It's a bit last-minute and I don't have an ice-pack to hand, just one of those insulated bottle holders. I will be expressing mid-morning, and can keep it in a fridge for an hour or so, but then will have a two-hour journey before I can put it in a fridge or freezer. Does this sound workable? I get 4ozs each time so really reluctant to have to throw it away sad Should I bother refrigerating it, or just keep it at room temp for the three hours or so before it can be refrigerated/frozen? Hope that makes sense and thanks in advance for any advice!

Any ice in the freezer? I'd throw it if not, but if you can do a makeshift ice pack with a few freezer bags then keep it if its still cold when youo get home.

Thanks MrsHoarder - will have to see if I can get some ice where I'm going as it'll take me a couple of hours to get there (very random work trip!!) so can't take a homemade icepack with me.
