  • The things that can happen to you...

    It amazes me the things that can go wrong in a day... I took today off from work so I could do some work on my wife's car [it was acting like it was sputtering when on the freeway]. After I was done, I took it on the freeway to to see if there was an improvement. Everything worked great, so I swang by her work to drop it off and pickup my truck that she took instead of her car. As I was going home on the freeway, another driver's Thule cargo carrier flew off his vehicle and into me at 65ish mph... Of course the first thing that went through my head was fuuuuuuu.... Though it turned out pretty good so far, as it did minimal damage to my truck.



    It made me think... had I been a few seconds later/earlier leaving my wife's place of employment, I probably wouldn't have been involved... It is crazy more **************** doesn't happen...



    TL;DR - **************** happened to me



    Here are some images of what happened to my truck... It could have been a lot worse!

        I thought about that too... If I was a few feet more forward than where I was, it could have easily been that!



        I feel bad for the guy, he was legitimately sorry. He had a set of skis in the carrier that got totally screwed up. He kept apologizing, and I told him that I accepted his apology and that **************** happens. I felt pretty calm the entire time; there was no need to exacerbate the situation...



        I know insurance will cover everything, but damn, it sucks to be in both situations... Though I think he is honestly worse off than me... Those skis looked expensive!

                Thanks



                It makes me wonder about all the near misses I have had, but didn't realize they occurred because they didn't happen to me... How many times have I got away with it? Hmmm....

                    Damn, you got lucky it just hit the front of the car.



                    Oddly enough, our Thule flew off our car on the highway as well. The latches/clamps that secure it to the roof rack rails seem to have become loose over time. It was empty and sailed across two lanes. Super lucky that no one was nearby that time...

                        Wow... fortunate for you that non one was nearby!



                        This guy told me that he got back from vacation and had put that on his other car [the one he was driving] but forgot to latch it down. The real crazy thing was that he drove to work this morning and was almost home when it came off... The sucker wasn't latched down, and it made it that long! It really amazes me... actually it is kind of dumbfounding.



                        It makes me think... maybe Yakima is the company to go with when I get setup for one of these systems I am lucky for sure, it could have been really bad!!!

                          Damn, you got lucky it just hit the front of the car.



                          Oddly enough, our Thule flew off our car on the highway as well. The latches/clamps that secure it to the roof rack rails seem to have become loose over time. It was empty and sailed across two lanes. Super lucky that no one was nearby that time...




                          Wow... fortunate for you that non one was nearby!



                          This guy told me that he got back from vacation and had put that on his other car [the one he was driving] but forgot to latch it down. The real crazy thing was that he drove to work this morning and was almost home when it came off... The sucker wasn't latched down, and it made it that long! It really amazes me... actually it is kind of dumbfounding.



                          It makes me think... maybe Yakima is the company to go with when I get setup for one of these systems I am lucky for sure, it could have been really bad!!!
