    "Trip with the guys" sounds cool and manly. "Mancation" sounds like a gay orgy.

    The guys on Brokeback Mountain were taking "mancations".

    For me, this has one name and one name only: surf trip.

    mancations...sounds so...unappealing. it sounds like 'medications for men' or 'incantations for men', or something.

    i can't see myself ever using that word in a normal conversation.

    i was thinking it, you said it.

    ...

    i've been on "road trips". never went on an airplane or cruise ship with a group of guys. that concept sounds a little "Entourage" to me, although if i were a jet setter i might have a different view.

    Portmanteau words have gotten so shitty lately.
