I carry an EpiPen when hiking or visiting botanical gardens as I am highly
allergic to bee stings.

With the short expiration dating of EpiPens I have to replace them
annually.Their cost have gone through the roof!

Although the product labeling warns against refrigeration could I
refrigerated the device when not needed and put it in my hiking bag when
hiking. With this strategy I might extent the shelf life to 2 or 3 years.
