When you sat "Pacific" can you be more specific ?

If you are coming this way then fairly obviously you'll not have any problem with supply in Australia or New Zealand nor any of the major Pacific Islands. I doubt French Polynesia will be a problem.

What btw is the shelf life of Insulin ? I've read that it's approx 30 days max even when refrigerated. Is that correct ? Longest passage when crossing the Pacific from America is roughly 3000nms I think, which is 25 days at five knots average.

Bruce, pretty much as I thought but obviously there was a bit of conjecture on my side. I suppose a diabetic would want to confirm the fact but you'd think a clinic would be able to supply Insulin. Thanks for the clarification. I wonder how one could find out for certain ?
