Three months driving around the United States to see its stunning National Parks and to raise money for a diabetes cure at JDRF. I drove almost 15,000 miles from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic and back again. With my insulin in a cooler in the back seat and a backpack full of needles and test strips, I followed whim and inspiration every single day with my travel partner Masayo. We saw dozens of National Parks, met some great people and saw many curious animals, became immersed in the real America by avoiding interstates, and even learned how to eat reasonably healthily in a land where that isn’t the default setting. Follow along on the road trip of a lifetime – and diabetes didn’t hold me back!

The world is worth exploring, and Type 1 diabetes doesn't have to stop anyone from enjoying the rich experiences of travel. On 70-130 you'll find fun but honest travelogues and photos from my journeys around the world with T1D and get tips for safely hitting the road, with diabetes supplies and without fear.
Traveling with diabetes is rarely easy but it's always worth it. 70-130 (named for my elusive target blood sugar range) exists to inspire others to break through whatever they feel is holding them back.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to connect with me on social media too. I want to hear about your own diabetes experiences! —Jeremy
