An injection of 'R' will cover your basal rate for 4 hours at a time.
Lily does this when we go rafting or 'tubing' on the river in the summer.

If you use R in your pump you can just bolus 4 hours of basal and disconnect.
If you use H, it is easier to do an injection than to try and shoot the 
QR but with some arithmetic gymnastics, that will work also.
