Re: [IP] what supplies to carry?

Hello!  This is he first time I've posted, but I was wondering about this.
Maybe I'm just over cautious, but I carry a little of everything with me
everywhere.  I have a small travel bag in which I keep my meter, "
Cake-Mate" for lows a vial of H, syringes, tape, extra sets, alc
swabs...even an extra glucagon kit.  Am I overdoing it?
