Before every boating trip, Beau drives to the 7-11 at the last minute to get additional “provisions,” which is code for Snickers bars. Snickers bars are a very serious business in my father’s mind. They have peanuts for protein to “hold us over” in case we get lost at sea for a few days.
–Brain in a Jar
We have begun our pilgrimage to see Beau in Florida, and we kicked it off in true Bercaw style: with Snickers bars. My dad never embarked on any journey without these “provisions,” as he called them. We plan to deliver one to him at Juniper Village in Naples when we arrive. Before then, we’re making stops in New Jersey, D.C., Virginia (hopefully to show David the old farm), North Carolina and Georgia.
We’re gonna need a lot of Snickers!
