The Wollondilly river claimed the Explorer on Saturday while out exploring tracks in the area the only downer for our hols , it was the crossing on the return journey that claimed us in hindsight should have put a blind on (hindsight is a wonderful thing) but as we made the first crossing with no trouble didn't think it would be a problem.

The only thing at the time that was a worry was while sitting in the car while my mate Mick (thanks Mick aka Fatz your a champion ) was trying to put the shackle on with the snatch strap, was the car filling up with water becoming boyent and rolling in the river as we were near a row of large submerged rocks and my daughter was in the car with me as well as the dogs, i couldn't open the door because of the current and didn't want to climb out the window and leave her behind either, Mick told me to stay in the car just in case, thank goodness nothing happened and we were pulled out in time .
The car sucked in a gutfull of water and it has bent a pushrod or valve and not to mention the interior is soaked, the water came up to the top of seat height what a mess .
Sunday and monday was spent trailering the Ford home and then going back to pick up the campers both me and Mick have campers Ruth (aka Penguins wife thanks Ruth and thanks Penguin for your vehicle) came down from Sydney and picked up Micks camper.
To my disbelief it is covered by insurance so instead of thousands $450 excess

if you get stuck in a river thats flowing fast OPEN YOUR DOORS FLOOD THE CAR.. it will sink. This sounds bad, but its better than floating down the river and possible doom.

So, going to sell it this time? ;)~

Absolutely agreed. Getting traction is the first thing you need in order to GET YOURSELF OUTTA THERE.

It may not be the natural thing to do, but it is the most sensible - after the "non-sensible" decision was made to go into deep fast water in the first place.

Landy's have bung-holes in them for a reason..... not to let the water out...but to let it IN.

Baz,
Sorry to hear about your troubles, the main thing is that eveyone is OK, (some worrying moments I'll bet). What part of the Wollondilly were you crossing, ie location (out towards Wombeyan caves isn't it?).
I too am amazed that the insurer will take care of the car. What company?
Hope all goes well quickly and you can be back out in the bush soon.

Geez champ, bit of a bummer, glad everyone is OK

It was on a marked road ? hence the insurance cover ? What company out of interest?

Handy tip - before crossing, attach the snatch strap to your recovery points and place it up high, ready just in case... Thats if you have another vehicle along.

i agree with the others, get it fixed and send her on its way

Hi Baz

Welcome to the club!!! Its not a nice feeling when your feet are underwater trying to operate the pedals is it. Very glad to hear your insurance will cover it.

I had a situation years ago where i was stuck (lake/swamp, not fast flowing water) and had water coming in the doors. My snorkel kept the diesel engine running (exhaust was underwater) but the amazing thing was my electric winch actually worked underwater!!!

And I learnt not to keep my winch controller behind the cargo barrier, I had to climb out the my door window, over the roof and opened the rear doors to get the winch controller. Once I got myself out, had to drainbleepe loads of stinking swamp water out of the door sills, lower panels etc and also checked all oils (all OK). Even though the standard 80 series are vinyl floors, they still have cloth type underlay that took days to dry out.

But I was very lucky overall, no damage apart from pride and some hard learnt lessons! Hope your vehicle comes back OK, but i think you were a bit deeper than me!

Cheers

Captain

Not a club i really wanted to join but well $hit happens, first thing we did when we got back to camp was drain the oil, take out the plugs and try to turn it over to blow the water out but it wouldn't turn, a lot of water came out of the oil and it stinks too and the inside of the car smells really bad not the sweetest smelling river water.

No snorkle for the explorer has to be custom made i thought about it but we are getting another 4b not sure what yet although a turbodiesel 100 series Landcruiser would be good, thats what pulled me out and towed us back to Sydney, 5 people, 2 dogs the explorer on a car trailer and the back loaded it sat on 110kph on the freeway never took it out of 5th gear from Mittagong very impressed indeed.

Allianz is our insurer greenslip as well it came as a shock to me, as i said to the guy on the phone i didn't think that dumb ar$e acts would be covered but they are, also we were on crown land and the river is crown land too public road so to speak, you can't own a river.

The first crossing was a cake walk and it was walked first too, i think what swamped us was the going in off the bank on the other side coming back as it was a little steeper on the approach so the front of the car was more submerged than when we came in on the other side it was a more smoother and flatter approach.

There is a possibility the Explorer might be written off as parts are so expensive for them, not sure as yet the insurance bloke comes out on thursday to look at the car.

Make a note, next vehicle must have a "snorkle" whatever it may be !!!

Glad to hear everyone was recovered safely.

Many posters appear surprised the insurance company are covering you.

Generally, comprehensive insurance will cover you for damage or loss anywhere you are entitled to be, after all it was an accident - that is what you take insurance out for.

But rarely for the motor only.

If you drive your vehicle into a creek and the motor carks it , yet , no other damage is visable , wanna bet the insurance co wont be interested. Could simply have been a motor blowup that insurance doesn't cover.

If other things are damaged , as it would appear with Baz(and the other incidents that I know of) its a different matter.

G'day Baz

Sounds like a rotten way to finish your holiday but you seemed to have pulled through OK with insurance.

I know this is off track a bit but up Bundaberg way late last year we had a double drowning when a person thought he could cross a swollen creek. His vehicle got taken down the creek and the driver managed to escape. The worst part was he had two girls in the car with him and they didn't make it. They were not his own kids either. both childeren drowned.

I know that is awful but be glad you got the vehicle out ok and YOU HAD SOMEONE ELSE THERE WITH YOU who could help you get you out if it went pearshaped.

Sorry for the depressing post but where you were allright someone else was not.

Good luck with the repairs and let us know who the insurance is through. Photos would be nice too but I imagine you would not had taking photos on your mind when you were stuck.

Welcome to the club Baz, I drowned my Gu on the Hortons track crossing in the Mitchell river Cup weekend 2002. Yep! an eary feeling watching the water pour in BUT I did dictate where the vehicle ended up and no one was hurt. Just a severely dented pride. Result, vehicle written off due to water going over the dash. Apart from that it was in excellent nick ( and pretty clean inside LOL). I managed to retriev all the valuable bits off it before the insurance company's assessor got to it and they even repaired the Engel.

Hope you had a great holiday up to that point!! As all the others have quite rightly said; the car is of no consequence as long as the occupants are all okay.

The fact that you're covered by insurance is a bonus and will help to ease the pain and suffering.

Happy car hunting; I'd be recommending a Cruiser or Patrol for the kinda work you do.

It was great up till the incident and yes it's only a car after all it can be replaced people aren't as for the new stead it is going to be a 100series Cruiser live axle 99 to 01 4.2 diesel with turbo, the Patrol was not chosen cause the girls find it hard to see over the bonet it seems to have a lower seat height than the cruiser which might account for that and the Landrover Discovery well parts prices and not holding it's value very well was it's demise a shame cause i really like the Disco and i'm only one part of the decision making after all, so Landcruiser it is.

Baz....

I am awfully sorry to read this.

I know a lot of people say it's just a vehicle, but it still sucks.... big time.

I was interested reading the report about opening the doors. I would not have thought of this.

Keep us up to speed with your progress on the repairs and purchase of your new steed.

Take care....

...... Wolfie

Sorry to hear of the Ford's drowning mate. But thankfully it was only metal and plastic that got hurt... not flesh and blood!!

Keep us posted, I agree with others that want pics.. :-)

The LC100 TD is a good choice mate!!!
