Default Taking hedgie on his first 1 and 1/2 trip; Advice?

Little Foot has taken rides to the vet, but this will be his first long car ride; about an hour and a half. We are going to visit my boyfriend for the weekend. I am planning on putting him in his little carrier for the car ride, and I am packing his cage for once we get to the house. I was planning on putting a thermometer in the car to regulate temperature. Are there any other suggestions or things I need to consider while traveling with him that long?

I appreciate your help!

I took my Wiilbur last week down to my aunt's house. This was his 2nd time in the car, his first time was when we first got him and he was a total mess...throwing up (the first time).

The second time, i knew that there was a chance he could get sick again so i took the liberty of leaving earlier, and stopping at some stopping areas every so often...that way he wouldn't go fully there and would have time to calm down again for a while.
