We all know that vacations can be a bit stressful.

Let's be honest, sometimes you need a vacation from the vacation.  There's a lot of planning involved. Do you book the trip yourself, or do you go through a travel agent?  If you're leaving the country, are your passports up to date?  If you're flying, should you check in a bag or do a carry-on? If you're traveling by car, do you have a fresh oil change?

Of course, one of the most important questions for many Montanans when it comes to going on vacation is who is going to take care of the pets.
