This is a question Shit Holidays

Camping on a dried-up river bed, we discovered when it rained during the night and half of our equipment and clothes were already most of the way to the Irish Sea why you shouldn't camp on a dried-up riverbed. Tell us about crappy holidays.

« Go Back

i've never really had a shit holiday. so i'll go with the duke of edinburgh camping trips that we had to do, because my friend persuaded me that "regular detentions for wearing eyeliner and skiving sports for the whole of sixth form" wouldn't look great on the extra-curricular sections of our ucas forms.

it was fucking horrific. slogging heavy rucksacks around, walking in 20 mile circles in a bloody april snowstorm when the straight road would have taken 1 mile, pitching our tent in a field full of stones on an incline, with a cow giving birth in the next field and bellowing all night. my friend needing a shit in the worst way possible and having to walk for 8 more miles because there wasn't a single toilet anywhere in the peak district. when we reached a pub and it was closed, she actually cried.

i got bollocked because we had to bring 10 chocolate bars for emergency energy rations, and my mum bought me those 100 calorie halo bars. then i got bollocked again because we ate them all.

my friend smoked a cigarette in the tent, dropped it on a plastic plate, and we were one bottle of cola away from going up in a miserable camping inferno. except that the fucking thing was probably too wet to ignite anyway. then she "got lost" in her sleep and ended up sprawled on top of me, trying to push me through the cold clammy tent wall.

the tent was small, cramped, smelly, and cold, it was uncomfortable, everything was wet and full of spiders in the morning. and yet people who aren't doing d of e do this for fun? why? how?

the most gutting thing is that no employer in history has ever been impressed by DofE on a CV

Are you one these Michael Gove types, who view children's formative years as little more than preparation for the jobs market?

(, Fri 15 Aug 2014, 10:58, closed)
no ... I'm saying exactly the opposite of that
DofE has become a default CV filler ... it's like an outward bound A level

I'd much rather employ somebody who did stuff off their own back ... or just dicked about like a normal teenager

I've always assumed that kids got involved in DofE, Scouting, and such, because they enjoyed that sort of thing, rather than because they had one eye on their future CV.
Maybe some kids were considerably more forward looking than I was.

oh I'm sure some of them are just terrible dweebs who genuinely want to go camping with other dweebs
but for pushier schools and parents they're definitely a CV tick box

Any photos of real life Shambolic appreciated.
Links, images, etc. Also Amorous Badger's fat wife, as my last request for these was deleted.

Got to put something on the mantelpiece
to keep the kids away from the fire

Both of the above
Plus, I'm admittedly quite curious as to whether Amorous Badger really has an enormowife, with titties like burst zeppelins and a gunt that could swallow the Minnesota Vikings' defensive line.

There is a large toilet in the peak district
it's called 'anywhere outside the tent'.

We have a lady deputy prime minister, so

No because we kept seeing other groups
Not surprisingly she didn't want to be the kid that shat herself in public.

Also we may have refused to let her have any emergency toilet roll because when you are 16, someone walking all cramped over because they need a dump is hilarious

I enjoyed what I did of the DofE.
Unfortunately, my friend and I were always handing our plans in late and got kicked out just before the very last hike. Personally, I think the teach was just looking for an excuse to stick us one.

i hated it
my friend blackmailed me into it, by talking about my ucas form. when i realised how shit it was, i tried to pull out, and she gave me a hard time.

and then she killed a canary on the animal welfare part of the course......................
