– Walk around during rest breaks, upon reaching destination, and before leaving to the next one!

– Purchase and keep in car – Fresh Fruit, Vegtables (convenient ones), and yogurt. 

– On days when at the hotel – go for a swim/hot tub, or use the gym.

– Keep water bottles in the car

-research popular trails in area’s and make that a sightseeing stop.
