Re: [IP] How to deal with long flights

Personally, on long flights, I like to read.  You can pretty much do 
whatever the airline allows (listen to music, play your PSP or 
whatever).  I usually take my notebook computer with the backup battery 
and the main battery both charged.  This way, I can also spend about 6 
hours on my computer, organizing emails, documents, files, etc.  You can 
then check your blood sugars as often as you normally do for this type 
of activity.
