    our gang went camping one summer and decided to hit the local beach, there were razor clam shells everywhere and we all got cuts on our feet, we nicknamed it blood beach

    Went to a fishing lodge in Ontario with my late father one year. In 7 days we only caught 5 fish. Beautiful scenery but what a wasted trip.

    Once I drove a car to Florida for vacation, and the car would oil-foul two spark plugs several times before we got there. Had to stop and pull HOT plugs to clean them and put them back in for another 100 miles or so!

    My worst vacation ever was in 1985 I took my two children tenting, my husband dropped us off on Sunday to sunny skies. It rained for the next six days, no swimming no out door playing, no campfires.

    I think the worst would have to be when I went to MD to see/pick up my friend Han. The ride over was just terrible.We got lost a handful of times, Evereyone on the highway drove reckless as hell, and itjust felt like it took forever. Not to mention that I was sick the whole way down and back.

    I have never really had a bad vacation. The one thing that comes to mind is the food we were served on a 35 day cruise across the South Pacific. Being a person who enjoys food and knew the food on prior cruises I was somewhat concerned about going on this trip.I could see gaining 30 or 40 pounds based on previous experiences.When checking out the cruise the only complaint we could find was poor food. How bad could it be? Well it was bad enough that my 30 to 40 pound expected gain turned into a loss of two pounds from my starting weight. Yes the food was bad but I was happy that I didn’t gain any weight so to my way of thinking it wasn’t a bad vacation

    When our 3 children were very young, 4,5 and 7, we drove to the seaside in England. One child was sick on the way down, throwing up and feeling miserable. When we arrived at our rented holiday home, we discovered that she had the mumps. Doctor’s visit, told we could stay but she had to stay in the house for the week. We took turns taking care of her, then the other two started the symptoms of mumps. The drive home was even worse than the drive there! Worse holiday ever!

    Coming back from a cruise, our plane was late coming into Auckland New Zealand and this caused us to be later for catching our flight in Los Angeles. It seemed that this gave security a lot of time to deal with us and several people from our flight including my wife and myself were really put through the hoops when we were selected for special searches as we were laid over for about three hours.

    My worst vacation was many years ago when I went to Toronto for a nice 2-day stay; it rained the entire time and was cold.

    My worst vacation was getting a major sunburn at the beginning of it! I was caked in sunblock and stayed inside most of the time!

    Worst vacation was a visit to Washington State in the early-90s. Someone dropped a rock the size of a softball from a roadway overpass and it smashed through our front passenger windshield region. Then later in the holiday the back window of our vehicle was shattered in an open air parking lot (summertime).

    Went camping with friends in the mountains about a month after seeing “The Blair Witch Project.” Big mistake and the last time I have EVER gone camping. I was freaked out all night and couldn’t wait for daylight.

    Worst trip ever was when I was backpacking in Bolivia and got altitude sickness during our four day jeep tour in the salt lakes region. We were in the middle of nowhere and we could only go to a higher elevation (which is usually not the best way to get better). I was so ill for days and far away from comfort. Now it makes for a good story.

    Dad, who had no sense of direction driving 4 kids and Mom to Florida from Canada. Got lost before we hit the U.S. Border. We were only 20 miles from home. Found our way then frugal Dad has us stay at the worst motels because they were almost free. YUCK.

    The worst vacation we ever took was our first trip to Las Vegas. It was mid-January, and believe it or not, it was warmer here in northern Ontario than it was there! We left Toronto in balmy warmth and walked out of the Airport into snow flurries! And believe me, there is NOWHERE on earth that feels colder than the Mojave Desert during a January cold-snap!!
