During the first couple of years we relied on one quad which somehow made it through to Year 4 until it was stolen. In Year 3 this was supplemented by the purchase of an ancient Land Rover, the only thing we could afford. Big mistake. Charming it may be but reliable it isn't. It has definitely spent more time sitting rusting outside the house than actually on the road.
This year we splashed out, took out a loan and bought a pick up - second hand but still in pretty good shape. Must be us then because that has also spent an unfeasible amount of time in the garage. Since good mechanics are hard to come by each time a vehicle goes to a garage we know it is going to come back with the original problem fixed (maybe) but one or two additional problems caused by not putting it back together properly!

Yesterday I took another (hopefully final) trip into Espargos to sign the 'last' piece of paper and now am hopeful that we may see the quad this side of Christmas. There's still a small amount of time for it to be useful!
