Hey, uh, when I go camping in 100-degree heat, I try to keep my insulin somewhere cooler, but not in the cooler. I find that I just cannot keep it cool enough, and for the most part it doesn't work as well as when I'm at home. I'm going to the camping place again - leaving Sunday, and I need someone to give me a clue what to do with my insulin without putting it in the cooler with the ice.

When we go camping, I keep mine in the ice chest with our food with no problems. I seal my bottles in Ziploc bags (double or even triple bagged) to make sure that water doesn't get in. I keep it on top of the food so that it doesn't get down too close to the ice and get too cold. I've never had any problems with it doing it that way.

As kimberly said, keeping it separate is good and if the cooler is smaller that helps keep the cool more concentrated. Also, if you wrap it in a towel that will help insulate it a little more. If you use the cold packs you also don't have to deal with it getting all wet.

Look up FRIO's on the Internet. My family enjoys camping for extended periods of time and this has made it easy to keep our insulin safe.
