your trip sounds like it will be a lot of fun!
I tried taking gas pills and they just don't work for me.
What has worked for me is cutting out refined carbs and sugars, such as; bread, pasta, chips, sorbet, etc.. I still had corn and fruits and stuff (natures carbs and sugars before processing). I had to do this while on pred b/c my sugars got too high but, since then I have not had much gas at all (I have always been pretty gassy).
My theory is that I must have been gassy b/c my body was breaking down all these refined carbs and sugars and gas was the side effect.
Also, at night pretend you forgot something outside.............then go fart your bum off!
btw, I am sure she is pretty nervous as well. Just tell her you will probably have to fart but that you will keep it to a minium and no dutch ovens! That way she wont be surprised.
