Thank you for your suggestions

Insulated carrier bag surrounded by clothes with or without a cooling pack inside the carrier bag depending on need but well inside of layers of clothing in saddlebags or a topcase away from the engine is where I would put it.

Thank you for the tips!
I just placed an order on Amazon for an insulated bag.
I don't want to take any chances!

Camping Solo..

Hi there, I have camped many times solo in the national parks between Washington State and all over Utah. NEVER an issue. Lots of people to feel secure and the camp hosts are always lovely... sometime too many so you have to watch your arrival times. Especially in Utah (Bryce, Zion, etc). Do not plan on a late in day arrival or you might be asking others to share their spot.

Have a great trip! - Carrie

Thank you, I'm really looking forward to it!

Been doing it for years. No problems. I prefer camping at parks vs. "the middle of nowhere," despite it feeling kind of wimpy. I can't ride at night (night vision problems), so I park the bike with a few hours to spare before sundown, camp withing walking distance of a fabulous hiking trail, and get myself a nice hike before bed time. I really enjoy the routine, the exercise, the scenery...

That is exactly what I'm hoping to do, too! Thank you. -Dawn

I have a Wolfman Expedition tank bag that gets hot if I'm in the sun for 15 mins and I'm worried that the medication will burn up (figuratively) if put inside panniers for a day. Any thoughts? Thank you
I put meds in a ziplock bag and an ice pack or actual ice (free from ice machines in convenience stores) in a seperate ziplock bag. Both ziplock bags go in an insulated bag in one of my panniers or packs. Seems to be sufficient.

That's a terrific idea. Thank you very much for the tip.

Yeah, I wish I didn't have to worry about birth control, but I'm a few decades away from it not being a concern. I'm not ready for little Blixas just yet.

This is one of the main reasons I am so glad to have gone through menopause! There are lots of advantages to riding in one's 50's.
