How can I create a live OS by converting fedora and its drivers into an iso file?

I have been running fedora on my desktop for about a month now, and I have decided that I want to take Fedora with me. I have a 126 GB USB stick with great read and write speeds. I want to put my Fedora OS (its drivers, software updates, and everything) onto this USB stick. I really NEED the drivers to be uploaded to the USB stick as well because drivers can't be installed on a live OS. Also, I need this system to be PERSISTENT. It really must be persistent because I plan on storing important files on there. Sorry for being redundant but I really just want to create a live persistent system from the OS and drivers I am using now.

Update: I have decided to use Fedora 20 to create my live persistent system because I already have all the drivers and such installed. I used livecd-tools kickstarts to create the ISO image and then installed the image onto my flash drive with Fedora liveusb-creator. There still seem to be some issues when I boot from this system because I can't connect to a network. Also, I see about five different partitions when I only made one for the media; about all five of the partitions have the name I gave my single partition, but some of them are failing to mount. I have been at this for more than a week and am beginning to wonder if it is even possible to configure a live persistent system with drivers and all. The persistent setting is working fine though.
