What is your craziest travel story?

Mine happened at an airport (or three to be exact.)

I was playing Minecraft when my mom called and said my morning flight was cancelled, she got me another flight that leaves in 3 hours, so I started packing since the airport is an hour away.

When I reached the airport my phone was at 20%. I told my mom I will text her when we land as I boarded the plane. 30 minutes after we were supposed to take off the captain said we need to get the plane de-iced. So we spent another 30 minutes getting to the platform. So who t an hour late.

tThe captain then gave everyone devastating news: we can't take off due to the weather.

My phone was then at 5% and I called my mom. The captain then said if you live near the current location, you are better off staying here and just get a new flight, since there is no available connecting flight.

i got off the plane because I haven eaten in 20-24 hours and was ready to go home. I rescheduled my flight when my brother dropped by with $20 and said I have to stay here through the night.

Once I boarded my next flight, I've been up 30 hours straight and felt super dirty from the benches. (I have some cool pictures from the airport if any of you want to see them.) 

i get on the flight and all of my gear is fully charged, including my power bank. Then my pilot says we are currently about 15 minutes late and we will arrive about 45 minutes late. We landed and I had to sprint across the airport, hoping I would catch the flight since I had no money. Luckily I did.

Now I arrived at my final destintion and went down to claim my luggage since it arrived a day earlier than me.The attendant asked for an ID so I ended up trying to grab my wallet, but I didn't find it. My mom was pissed off since I lost my ID in September and they had to fly me to California for my Military ID. I found my Colorado (those of you old timers know I used to live in Colorado) ID in my satchel, but not my wallet. I showed it to her and we took off. Getting in an arguement at one point. The next day I get a call from Georgia, and I luckily got the job I applied for. (Even bought I said I couldn't work until the end of the month). 

I then called airport and filed lost items. Skip another few weeks, I was sitting on the couch writing my review when Southwest sent me an email saying they found it. 

All in all it was not the funniest trip. 

to;dr  One cancelled flight, one delayed, stayed all night at airport, lost wallet,found wallet.

Man this story is too tense for me. But at least it didn't wind up going completely downhill.

 

I can't say I have anything similar. I guess the closest thing was when my dad and step-family went to Colorado for one weekend and while we were crossing a river area my dad slipped and almost fell into the water. Thinking back on it, the water wasn't really deep from what I remember but it was still a bit scary.

Not really a crazy story just a travel story. I was in Illinois heading back to Wisconsin and we stopped at a Cracker Barrel to eat. Had chicken dumplings, which I liked but my body didn't agree since it was so used to eating greasy food(pizza, Hardee's, Chinese food), and so I had to go to the bathroom. I like having as much room as possible so I picked the last stall of the bathroom(it was one those handicap accessible stalls, so alotta leg room). I was happily doing my deed, when I see that someone has entered the stall to the left of me. I saw the feet, heard a fart, and then the dude left without flushing. I was thinking to myself, "How hard is it to flush? I mean just kick the damn handle if you don't wanna touch it or grab it with paper." But whatever, went back to business. As I was finishing up, another man walks in and says loudly, "Oh my...Gawd!" and I hear him scurrying out of the bathroom. I was walking out of the stall and headed towards to washing my hands, when I catch a glimpse of what the older man saw: the toilet in the stall next to me was just splattered with poop around the rim and on the ground. The guy that was came in the stall earlier, didn't even squat down or turn around, he just stood over the toilet. I was grossed out, but I was scared. Scared because I was the last one out of the bathroom, so I thought I was going to get blamed for it. I washed my hands and walked out from the bathroom slowly, looking around to see if security or employees were coming to look at the bathroom.

 

Long story short: stay off the shrooms.
