Re: [IP] Pump supply kits?

I am on the OmniPod and I carry the following...always...
 2 extra pods, a vial of Novalog, 3 syringes, my PDM for the OmniPod, a meter, a
lancing device, alcohol swabs, cotton balls, lancets, a glucagon kit, 2 extra
batteries for my PDM, strips and a pouch for trash. I change my pod every 3 days
and when I do, I repack the bag so that I have enough stuff to take 10 blood
tests a day for 3 days (30 lancets, 30 cotton balls, 30 alcohol swabs).
Overkill, perhaps, but I always have what I need. I only carry 3 extra syringes
because I shouldn't need more than that before I would be able to return home
from work or shopping.

  I have only been at this since January, as far as pumping goes and already
 an overstuffed kit bag that goes where I go. I am curious on what you guys
in your kits when away from home.

  My current bag is a Flambeau fishing pack 8 1/2 X 10 X 3 1/2 and has a
top third of the 3 1/2' thickness. In it is my Insulin cold pack, working Vial
of Novalog, with syringes (for emergencies). New Meter & pouch. Band aids in a
 hard box, A tube of Neosporin, Alcohol wipes (5 -10), IV Preps (5 - 10), IV
 (10), Quick sets and reservoirs (2), Quick Serter (use occasionally), Change
notebook and the Pocket Pancreas, and last but not least a small Carb counting

 Whenever I leave the house for an extended time this is with me. When I was on
MDI it was just the Insulin cold pack and a few syringes as well as the glucose
meter and strips.
