Hello, I'm going to go away for a month this December and I dont know whether or not I should bring my tortoise. Where I'm going is cold and I worry about her neing sick, but I also cant find a pet hotel or a babysitter. Is there anything I can do?

She should be fine unless you'll be in a car for days. You could bring a smaller set up with you. Her food and accessories. A large steralite bin, like the big black ones at target, her heating, uvb and maybe a heat pad to go under the bin at night. Hope this helps.

Leave the tortoise at home in its enclosure with timers and thermostats and have a friend, neighbor, or family member come give food and clean water daily.
