Back atrepparttar showroom, with smiles long since forgotten, campers were unhappy to sayrepparttar 149731 least. I forget which car we drove home and was preparing forrepparttar 149732 worst, which did actually happen. The fault could not be diagnosed and we reluctantly accepted another replacement car, slightly bigger, to take us on our adventure. We were all extremely disappointed not to be able to show off our new machine to relatives and friends but as it turned out,repparttar 149733 larger car was a great benefit onrepparttar 149734 return journey with allrepparttar 149735 extra accumulations that a 2000 mile trip does to a small family car.

Two weeks later, safely home from an exhausting round of Family, Friends and Motorway overdose, we looked forward to retrieving our real car; as I am sure, it too, was looking forward to its new owner (or was it?) It transpired that two or three Auto Electrical Engineers had failed to locaterepparttar 149736 problem and withrepparttar 149737 hours ticking away fast torepparttar 149738 arrival ofrepparttar 149739 owner, some emergency action was required if a lynching (or worse) was to be avoided. Said Service Manager tookrepparttar 149740 Bull byrepparttar 149741 Horns and proceeded very quickly, but quite by chance, to discoverrepparttar 149742 malfunction. A simple short circuit onrepparttar 149743 steering column whenrepparttar 149744 steering wheel was atrepparttar 149745 fully locked position.

Problem solved---- Happy Campers again …not for long sadly! Never having had such a debilitating situation, (at least inrepparttar 149746 motoring sense!) with any new car before, overrepparttar 149747 previous twenty seven years, I felt confident thatrepparttar 149748 worst was over .It was only just beginning and it would be come a lot worse overrepparttar 149749 next twelve months and beyond. Clearly my plans forrepparttar 149750 future which included guaranteed, trouble free motoring, had taken a severe knockdown or as Jim Edwards would say a “Friday night smackdown”. Jim, as some of you will know is a master Internet Marketing Guru and Author although he doesn’t likerepparttar 149751 term. I will put his URL inrepparttar 149752 resource box atrepparttar 149753 end, for those of you who are interested in a real life success story. I have Jim to thank for helping me to get down and dirty with my word processor and who knows maybe one day I will be able to afford to walk into a Car showroom again and buyrepparttar 149754 damn place and then maybe, just maybe, I will get some service.

It’s just too exhausting, reliving those heady days, for more than an hour at a time, sorepparttar 149755 rest ofrepparttar 149756 story and it’s a long one, will follow inrepparttar 149757 next chapter. Inrepparttar 149758 mean time drive safely and remember learning is a lifetime occupation.

Robin Piggott has spent many years behind the wheel and is sharing these experiences with pupils and readers alike .He is indebted to Jim Edwards who is a remarkable Internet pioneerand well worth looking up. Jim Edwards:-
