Everyone loves a road trip. Everyone! Show us someone who doesn’t love a road trip, and we’ll show you a liar with their pants on fire. Road trips are basically the ultimate expression of freedom. Miles upon miles of open road stretching out in front of you and your mates; memories to be made and bar tabs to be paid. There really is nothing on earth quite like putting hundreds of miles between yourself and the mundane reality of day-to-day life.
Despite how unbelievably great road trips are, they’re definitely not invincible. Things can go wrong on them, things that can shake the trip down to its foundations and leave the whole enterprise crying on the floor in a corner. These awkward scenarios, listed below, might seem like silly nonsense but they’re serious…deadly serious. The entire structure of your adventure is at stake. The awkward road is a road you don’t want to go down. Trust us.
