Tell us your travel horror story and win free Gerber gear
IF YOU’VE TRAVELED ENOUGH you’ve likely gotten into trouble: lost in the woods, mugged at the train station, stuck on a 36 hour bus ride with no bathroom breaks. These are moments where you were hating it at the time, but in retrospect they became your best stories.
Send Matador your story or photo of travel gone wrong. In partnership with our friends at Gerber, we’re giving the daily winners tools that just might help you get out of trouble.
From all the entries we will select a Grand Prize winner who will walk away with the Gerber Apocalypse Kit — an assortment of knives, axes, machetes, and tools specifically assembled to survive when everything goes wrong.
Note: There is no limit to how many stories / photos you can submit.
