If there isn't all that much data involved, get a 1GB USB key. Use an encrypted file system on it and carry it around with you on your car keys.

You can of course encrypt your root filesystem and all other filesystems but the one /boot resides on.
<plug type="shameless">
I've written an expansible initrd concept and plugins for it that do just that for ROCK Linux. Documentation here: http://doc.rocklinux.org/wiki/EncryptedRoot
With some manual work it is transferrable to other distributions, too.
