This is the story of the time I forgot extra pods when I went camping.
My family and I were about half way to Mammoth Lakes, California, cruising around the Mohave desert in our suburban. I was probably only about 10 years old at the time, when suddenly, it hit us. My dad started whispering quickly to my mom, and they both went, "Ooh no!" All this was getting me pretty nervous. "What is it?!" I asked, started to get a little freaked out, "What's wrong?!" My parents then told me we had forgotten to bring extra pods, only the one extra I kept in my bag at all times. This would be enough for our trip, but if we put the pod on and it failed, we would be up a serious creek. I was really upset and scared! I even started crying! My parents said, "Calm down, Anna. We'll get through this. We have needles and plenty of insulin." I finally agreed that we didn't have to turn around and go back home. Once we got there I had my parents call Omnipod immediately, and Omnipod said they could do over-night shipments, (yes- from their company in Massachusetts) but we'd need to give them an address, which was a problem, because we were camping. My dad then came up with a brilliant idea! We went to the local fire station, and explained the situation. They agreed and said we have the pods sent there! I was so happy!! The pods arrived right on schedule, and everything went smoothly. I would like to give a super special thanks to the firemen, and women, of Mammoth Lakes California! I had a great camping trip, and so far have not forgotten the pods again!
