The Travel Queen Launches Green Adventure Expedition

The Travel Queen (The TQ) begins its maiden voyage this week,
heading from Utah to Alaska and back, travelling over 6,000 miles
while making stops at various skiing and snowboarding back-country
terrain in Wyoming, Montana, Canada and Alaska.

The expedition team embarking on this great adventure consists of a
professional backcountry snowboarder, a professional photographer, a
journalist/blogger and a sustainable living expert. They are
fulfilling their dream to create an alternative fuel and solar energy
powered vehicle (the TQ) to take them on this fantastic voyage
promoting eco-friendly education. The TQ is a 1977 remodeled Travel
Queen motor home with a converted, fully functional,
alternatively-fueled 1990 Dodge Cummins diesel engine that also
utilizes solar power.

The TQ team will be promoting alternative and eco-friendly adventure
education to children across North America via satellite phone calls
and presentations. One TQ member, professional snowboarder Sean
Busby, will also be managing his Type 1 diabetes on the journey and
hopes to inspire others not to let diabetes get in the way of their
dreams. Busby will be wearing the OmniPod(R) Insulin Management
System while snowboarding some of the most treacherous and remote
terrains on the journey.

“We hope to inspire people to make sustainable choices, even while
facing challenges like managing diabetes,” said Busby. “During and
after the tour, our journey and my snowboarding expeditions will be
shared via satellite phone calls and presentations with children all
across North America. I love nothing more than being able to pursue
my dreams and show others how they can too.”

The TQ will be stopping at the following locations: Yellowstone
National Park; Kalispell, Montana; Calgary, Alberta; Whitehorse,
Yukon; and Anchorage, Alaska. The team will be visiting children’s
groups across North America to explain green travel techniques and
discuss various wildlife and terrain found on the expedition. They
will also be stopping to visit with local chapters of diabetes
advocacy organizations.

About Type 1 Diabetes (from American Diabetes Association)
Type 1
diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was
previously known as juvenile diabetes. In Type 1 diabetes, the body
does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to
convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily
life. Only 5-10% of people with diabetes have this form of the
disease. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even
young children with Type 1 diabetes can learn to manage their
condition and live long, healthy, happy lives.

About the OmniPod
The OmniPod Insulin Management System is the
world’s first tubeless insulin pump. The OmniPod offers people living
with insulin-requiring diabetes all the benefits of insulin pump
therapy, with freedom and ease. The tubing-free OmniPod insulin pump
has just two easy-to-use parts: the discreet, waterproof Pod, which
automatically inserts and can be worn on many parts of the body to
hold and deliver insulin; and the Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM), a
hand-held device that wirelessly programs the Pod, calculates
suggested doses and has a built-in blood glucose meter. For more
