Talking Worst Trip Experience

What was the worst Experience you have had on a Skoolie trip?
Bus wouldn't start in awkward place? Roof leaked during huge storm? Pick up any weird people?

Would love to get a collection of these!

Pulling over when it started to warm up
Only to realize there would be NO A/C because the Generator start switch did nothing... And I had my son riding along.
(Lucky for us a few miles down the road I guess something made contact and it fired up and has every since)

My worst experience is actually when my friends and I Drove the bus home from PA to IL. We decided to do it in February and during a pretty bad storm. It was negative 20 out and we learned that our windsheild wiper sprayers didnt work so at night we were driving blind. We ended up pulling over and staying in the night to wake up to a bus that didn't start. made an 8 hour trip into a 2 day trip.... great way to kick off the Skoolie experience!!
