    The craziest adventure vacation I ever did was last year when we are doing a road trip in Utah. We have no cell phone reception, no kind of communications, just following paper maps, vacation guides and highway road signs. It was awesome.

    My girlfriend and I and two friends took a motorcycle trip to Yellowstone National Park last Labor Day weekend. 100 miles in the rain, over a mountain peak (10,300 feet) at 30 degrees, 1400 miles in 4 days. I have NEVER had that much fun. There is nothing like experiencing nature on the back of a motorcycle!

  10. ryan Earley says:

    Went to mexico, didn’t make it back until 91 days later

  11. Aaron Dias says:

    My girlfriend and I once got lost in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Very low on gas, no cell reception. Was quite scary.

  12. chrissy sommer says:

    Any of my childhood vacations with my parents …. my parents would drive miles to see a giant ball of twine or take me places that were “educational”…. but things didn’t always go as planned like in Vacation.

  13. Sharon Young says:

    Once on a family vacation across the Midwest to CA, we drove through a tornado in KS, a sandstorm in the desert and then had to buy snow tires to cross the mountains! All for a family Thanksgiving dinner! I remember that was the first time I had ever seen or heard of a gas war!

  16. Deonta says:

    Road trip to Kentucky on motorcycles. Things was going wrong before we even hit the highway but through it all we had a fun trip

  17. Kerri says:

    my friends and I decided it was “still” a good idea to go Mexico at the height of the swine flu epidemic a few years back. Only 25% of the hotel was open due to other vacationers “cancelling” their trips out of fear, so very there was very limited food and drinks available to us, pools weren’t maintenanced, and not much staffing onsite so most onsite hotel bars / restaurants were closed. We had to go into town just to get a decent meal via local restaurants! NOT the best “all-inclusive” vacation!

  18. Jenny Amparan says:

    Flat tire, delayed train by four hours, then bathrooms out of service with 2 kids!

  19. Helen R says:

    A few years ago we headed back to MO for Christmas, got caught in a blizzard, interstates shutting down, temperatures dropping, but we kept plugging along & barreled through snow drifts to get there. Snowed in for 2 days, neighbor plowed the road, then left to see family in Texas & got caught in snow again! Our kids will never forget!

  20. Craziest vacation is when we got lost our reservation for cabin in Ozarks wasn’t kept so we had to rent a tent and then started to rain n rainned all weekend haven’t attempted that again

    My craziest vacation was on a Spanish class trip while in college to Mexico City. The bus driver in Mexico knew I was Mexican, but being American born, we did learn Spanish like we should.

    Our family trip out west, when we missed an exit and had to drive 20 to the next exit to
    turn around, and then we made another wrong turn and ended up on a dirt road
    going through an Indian reservation. Got stopped by reservation police, who helped
    us get back to the highway. By that time we missed seeing Devils Mountain. We back tracked the next day and saw it. Great memories!

  67. Carol says:

    Took the train to Chicago with my best friend. Thought we would get attacked in the train station cause there was no one there and it looked like we were in skidrow. Was scary. Got on the train and we were laughing along the way cause the train like slowed down for people to get on and off not really stop. And then we had to stop cause cows crossing the road blocked the tractks. Was freezing in Chicago cause it was February and it snowed. Was slmost too cold to walk anywhere so we bought food and took it back to the hotel. Basically ate and watched TV the whole time but we laughed and laughed. And then to top it off we got to the station late for the trip home and had to run through the station and after the train just like in the movies. We still laugh about that trip.

  68. Nancy says:

    Years ago, my friend and I were going to drive several hours across the state to go to a big concert the next day. Within the first hour of leaving home (in the daytime), it got completely dark and cloudy. We ended up getting pulled over later for going over the speed limit, and we were let go with a warning. We made reservations late, everything was sold out, and all that was left was a hotel in a scary part of town, and we arrived at night with a bunch of people sitting outside staring at us. Next day drove 30 minutes from hotel to stadium and forgot tickets at hotel. Went back for tickets and arrived again at stadium. It was a windy day, and when we got to the gate, my ticket had blown away. Had to buy a new ticket. Once we got inside it started pouring down rain on us. We left concert early and went back to hotel. Watched news and discovered that the black clouds we drove through ended up being a bad tornado near where we came from. We thought we would do some shopping the next day. Parking lot pretty empty, so we got a good parking spot. Found out Mall closed due to holiday. On the way home, ended up going down a one-way street the wrong way in front of a cop and he laughed at us. My friend and I affectionately refer to this as the Trip from Hell! LOL 🙂

  76. Luis Pena says:

    Went to the Mayan Ruins in Mexico two years ago, it was raining so hard the entire time, we stop caring about the rain and starting running and have an awesome time while wet!

  77. Mike Hassler says:

    Went to Cedar Point in Ohio, while on the Millenium ride (I think) the car in front of us came back from their ride COVERED in a thick layer of dead bugs, large gnats of some sort. Coughing, spitting, wiping the thick layer of legs and guts and wings off of their faces. We could see even in dusk multiple CLOUDS of insects hovering high around the track. We had to ride next, but after waiting like 45 minutes we decided we had to go anyway. We rode through the ride at night with sunglasses, and shirts over us like Beavis doing Cornholio. It was awesome.

  78. Marlon Brown says:

    Last year my family reunion was in Jena Louisiana the beach was flooded, the hotel was crapy, and the water was brown the only good thing was Wal-Mart next to the hotel.

  79. Shelley says:

    RV trip to New Mexico. If it could go wrong, it did.

  80. Marissa says:

    Our trip to Maine to visit family. Everything that could go wrong did… Got to the airport with plenty of time, only to find that the flight staff that was scheduled for our plane was over their hours so they had to call and replace them. Flight left late, which caused us to miss our connecting flight. Ended up having to make two more connecting flights, with weather delays. It ended up taking us 18 hours to get to Maine, with an additional 3 hours driving time to go, we found the first hotel and got some sleep before continuing the next day. What a trip!

    To Vegas from Cheyenne. Severe thunderstorm within two hours of our trip and one of the windshield wipers flew off. Later that night we almost ran into a huge buck in the mountains. Did a 360 on the highway trying to avoid hitting it. Get to Vegas and we have a flat tire. On the way home one of us gets food poisoning.

  88. Rachel Ann says:

    1st family vacation with our daughter we went to Disney World and there was record rainfall for that day at the park! she was so upset she didn’t want to even go back to the park! the next day was much better… was quite an expensive day at Disney since we sat inside a store for a few hours hoping the rain would stop and some of the day would be salvaged.

  89. Sarthak Sinha says:

    A few years back I went on vacation with the family. We were in a very very small travel trailer that looked something like the one that Goofy pulls behind his car in the Disney cartoon.
    Anyway, it was late and I was tired of driving, I happened to see a large parking lot that was vacant and decided to pull in and set up camp for the night.

    It was a Saturday night and I figured that what ever parking lot and building this was, no one would be using it on Sunday morning. So, I parked and unhooked the trailer and set up camp. By morning I had all the camping gadgets set up, gas grill, lawn chairs, trash can ect.

    However, at about 10.30am, a line of cars started to poor into the parking lot and people dressed up in tuxedos and long dresses began to get out and walk right next to my camp and enter the front door of the building that I was parked right in front of.

    Out of all the times and all the places, I happened to set up camp in front of the main entrance for a high school graduation!

    As the graduates, family and guest passed by my camp site I remember asking one of them as they passed by if they knew “what day does the trash get picked from here”!
