Summary (IBList user synopsis):

A vacationing suburban family have their first experience at a public jaunt terminal. Though "jaunting" is named for a free-will teleportation method from a famous science fiction novel, in real life humans are teleported only while unconscious, since early testers of the technology died or went mad during a split-second in translation. "It's eternity in there," said the only coherent survivor. But now carefully applied safeguards have made jaunting popular and safe for the general public

First published in Twilight Zone magazine, June 1981.
