Hello everyone, I am Dave Hennesey. I have had diabetes since I was 13 and like the 80% of you out there have read all sorts of information on diabetes. After reading all these great ideas I thought to start my own blog because I never read about people that are the walmart types with type 1 diabetes or ones that camped alot. So if you are a diabetic that like myself have felt left in the dark because you enjoy regular food and you have a normal job (I am an accountant), and like camping and outdoors this is the blog for you.



Picture of me getting ready to do some camping in the new fangled ultra dry outdoors shirt.


My wife and I out and about doing some geocaching (lots of fun).

The things I come across just driving to work everyday.


My pump and my favorite Gerber multi tool for when I am on the ranch doing things.

Thanks for an excellent blog, and your next (Trail Building) as well. There is no better way to bring down BGs than camping, trail building, playing with dogs while camping and trail building...

Welcome to the world of blogging. I started blogging when I went onto the insulin pump - after over 40 years of MDI! Feels great to connect with other diabetics out there that share similar passions for life (mine is sailing - did a race last w/e which I'll be posting a blog about shortly - along with a video of crossing the race line). You can check me out at Diabetes1.org(where I also work p/t as a diabetic mentor). Psst, be careful in bear country (been there - done that ).
