Actually, I'm pretty sure that if my DH just decided to refuse to go on the occasional business trips to the warehouse, which he hates doing, his boss would fire him, or a least give him a poor review so he wouldn't get his annual raise. The program DH participated in for his college scholarship involved a camping trip. Though I suppose I could stop taking my dad to visit my non-driver sister out of state, it would really be hard on my dad.
Sometimes adults do need to go on trips they might not really want to. If an adult refuses to ever make such trips, it will effect their career options and may separate them from family.
This was why I suggested that the OP gradually work with her DS to make him more comfortable with taking trips.
