We are currently on the road heading to Bar Harbor, Maine.  Traveling long distances in a RV can result in a bit of stress on both of us.  Dave is dealing with crazy drivers, truckers and amazingly large pot holes on the highway due to a terrible winter.  I'm dealing with website deadlines on the road, the stress of helping to navigate, and two freaked out dogs that do not understand why the world is different every time I open that door.

Often we find ourselves hours on the road without a bite to eat, and grouchiness may ensue.  SNICKERS® is here to help!
