Type 1's - what is your strategy for long, somewhat-primitive trips? Any special diet or dosage tips?

I carry clif bars (granola bars, cereal bars, etc) everywhere- it's actually pretty annoying lugging that crap around all the time.
I test my blood every 2 hours or so- even more when I'm riding. But, I don't eat breakfast, eat a small lunch, and a big dinner, so traveling is easier when you only need one big meal per day.
As others have said... I'd take the same insulin as normal, but if I were going to change my dose, I'd err on the less insulin side. High blood sugar takes years to kill you... low blood sugar kills you overnight.
