For storage, it depends on how long the milk has to be out. The CDC gives some detailed guidelines HERE. I would get a cooler, some ice packs, and breastmilk storage bags. It's easier to keep the milk cold if it lays flat in a bag. You can lay the ice packs on top of the bags of milk.
I have the same pump(haven't used it yet. Waiting for our lo) but you can also use batteries in it. I got mine from ameda's website and it was a lot cheaper($100-150)!!!
