Caravan Road Trip Cut Short
My name is oscar, from spain, im 24. my history started im brisbane, i came here for study, and I bought a toyota lexcen VP 1993. the 26 of august my friends and I rented a caravan, we wanted to go to sydney, canberra, melbourne, adelaide and come back to brisbane, everything in 13 days.
when we were near to sydney on 29 of august, the car which was in front of me stopped, the car was far to me, but I pushed the brakes but the car didnt stop, the tyres were stopped, but slide...the caravan had a problem with the brakes and it didnt stop.
I slipped more of 10m when I crashed with another car. I was around 80km/h.
i remember it very slow, i told be careful many times to my friends, and the crash, when my bonnet folded. when we were stopped, i ask to everyone, if they are ok... we were lucky, we were live. my first thing that I did was puch the car outside of the road, because it was very bad, and a lot of car came to me, too fast.
after to give my insurance to the guy, i called to the my insurance for pick up the caravan, but they asked me 800$ for pick it up.... i couldn´t pay this price, so i looked for rent a car, but a didn´t find any car with toy bar.
im mechanic, so i tryed to repair the car, the radiator was broken, the bumper bar was destroyed and the bonnet totaly folded, the chassis was a little bit deviant.
i didnt know that i can do in this situation, so i bought a second hand radiator and puched it, remove the bumper and bumper bar, i checked that the bonnet will not open, and I continued my trip with the car in this situation.
we went to canberra, melbourne, adelaide and everything was OK, but when I went to the outback, i have some accident with the kangaroos, when I crassed with the kangaroo, he broke my radiator, because I didnt have bumper... i tryed to repaired my radiator, but ony found a temporal fix.
i contunued the trip with the car losting water, i puched somethimes but i didnt have everytime, the poor car was very,very,very hot, i drove more that 30km without water, in the redline.
ultimately i had arrived in brisbane for dropp of the caravan, and my trip was finished in this moment.
