When earplugs were not available, I have resorted to using a thumb to stifle the noise.

Mine too - applied with sufficient pressure!

I am a snorer and obtained this device from my dentist. It is tolerable but at least it really controls the snoring. Not cheap though.

My dentist wanted me to undergo a "sleep test" in a program that eventually would result in a custom mouthpiece for apnea that would run around $3000 total and insurance would cover it. Absolutely crazy (in my opinion.) I work with plastics every day.

This is exactly the same thing the dentists/doctors provide for $100 or so. I keep one in the trailer so I don't forget it. Wifey says it works great.

Thanks for the info, Charlie. I just read up on it. Now to get Dirk to read about it.

I know I wasn't the one to start this thread, but I very well could have! I greatly appreciate the serious replies as snoring can be a major problem in many relationships and one that could severely limit traveling in a trailer. I've been worrying about it big time.

(Yes, I know there have been some jokes, but that's kind of to be expected in just about any thread on this forum.)

Because I would have my dog licking my ears while I tried to sleep.

You obviously have never had good poutine, J Mac. There is never any left over.

Try visiting a hearing aid outlet and ask for 'sleepers'. They are a moulded ear piece that effectively blocks about 90% of all noise. I have been using them for a few years. They cost me about $160 cdn but well worth every penny.
