Put it in the gig bag and try to keep it somewhere with relatively constant humidity. That's about all you really need to do but even that may be a bit much in my opinion, I'm away at university most of the year (three months at a time or more) and find when I get home that the few guitars I don't bring with me are just fine. They might need new strings when I get back but there's nothing wrong with them a decent clean and a set up wouldn't fix.

If you have such thing as the Dunlop string cleaner you can put it on the strings so they won't rust. Maybe you can loose the strings a bit so they won't break if the temperature changes, too.

Just put the guitar in the bag and keep it in a place were the temperature will be fairly consistant. There really isn't anything else that needs to be done.
