This forum is fantastic.

I'm going on an overnight trip, and it is going to be very hot... part of that trip is at a water park, in the sun. I'm on a birth control pill that I take in the morning. I just started the new pack, and there's all these things about not letting the pills get too hot and such, so I don't want to risk that by bringing the whole pack.

Is it alright for me to just take the one pill that I need for the next morning, and leave the rest of the pack at home? I'd keep it in a plastic baggie so I wouldn't lose it. I've reread the little insert and I see nothing about taking a pill out of the box early.

I'm probably just too paranoid about the whole pill thing. Haha.

That's totally fine (just as it is to put pills in a pill case to hold them). As well, it's easier than worrying about losing a whole pack.
