Thanks @jeffsurfsncocktails for posting - let us know how it turns out and what you end up doing.
A couple of years ago, I did about 9 weeks of biking in Europe, taking a bunch of my dexcom and tandem pump supplies with me. I thought I would be super smart and send along ‘care packages’ to a few places I would stay on the trip - one in Denmark, and one in Italy. The packages contained more insulin and sensors / transmitters etc. I mailed them via USPS about 4 weeks before the trip.
So I get to Denmark and the hotel has no record of any package like that being delivered. No sweat, I have packed extra (and insulin use goes down when you’re doing that much exercising).
Three weeks later I get to Italy. You know what happened … no package. Actually, it had arrived in central italy but they felt that I was importing pharmaceuticals and so they would not release the package unless I paid a tax. This was all negotiated via the hotel front office people!
In the end I never got the ‘care packages’ during the trip - but both showed up back at their return address several months later!
And I had brought along insulin pens and an old-fashioned bg meter, so I went back to that regime for the last couple of weeks. Thank heavens for backup.
This brings up another point - while I am a huge dexcom/tandem fan, if you are doing hard traveling, pens and bg meters take up a lot less space and require less maintenance.
