The Diabadass Tour is a journey across America to highlight the individuals, companies, and organizations that make up the 1 diabetic community. The main adventurer is Erik Douds (me) who is an endurance athlete that biked 6,000+ miles in 2017, has been to six continents, and manages type 1 diabetes since 2007. I now use a DIY artificial pancreas called ‘Loop’. My grandfather was diagnosed with T1D in 1940.

    As a type 2 diabetic of 3 years I’ve been trying to figure out what to eat while camping/hiking etc and also as a resident of Michigan trying to find more information about these Free Access. Only info I found so far was access passes that cost 80 bucks a year. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
