What’s Your Worst Road Trip Experience?

We love even the shittiest road trip, but there are many times when the thrill of the road tests our resolve and our sanity.

Personally, I've never had to deal with anything worse than getting misdirected a couple dozen times on some minor Houston highways, or finding out late one night that travelling businessmen had rented every single room in the Nevada boomtown we were just driving into.

What's been your worst tale of woe related to a road trip?
