But for people who like to travel, you just have to chalk this up to the old saying; “The journey is half the fun.” Because WHEREVER you are going; once you sit down and pop open that first beer, your buddies will NOT believe you for one second when you say the guy in front of you in the TSA check line had a SNAKE in a COMPUTER!
