"By the time the car came to the workshop, I was told that it’s basically worthless and unrepairable. Insurance does not cover people driving into the ocean.

There is no need to feel pity though. My adventure continues. I was not about to give up on my dream of traveling around the world by car, so, I bought a virtually identical Landrover a week ago."

Just pop down to local dealer and pickup another truck ... Easy!

I wonder if he would have got out if he was aired down properly? And maybe had a little more experience?

He mentioned that his engine died when he was splashing around... One wave later and the thing probably sank to the axles. Game over.

I wonder if Mummy and Daddy were pissed when he told them he needed a new Rover to continue his "adventures"? Nice.

Hey! Hold my beer and watch this.

I would have been a bit more upset since going to the dealer to pick up another one would not be an option.
