Cape tribulation horse rides require all types of vehicles to carry out various jobs all over the property .
Its not till you lose vehicles that you find its importance to the business .
A few months ago my Triton ute blew its motor and off the road it went .
The triton has its uses for the business such as customer pick ups , collecting feed from mossman .
Two months ago i employed a staff member to be trained as a guide for the electric vehicles .
His so called mechanical skills seemed to be fine and i had no problem be leaving what he was telling me .
The words , Steve this is what i can do for should have sent alarm bells but i wanted that car back on the road .
Vehicles these days are all electronic and i am not match for that , so better i get someone younger .
First it was the turbo , then came the head , hey lets not forget the new bottom end bearings .
I really dislike people when they just start taking the mickey out of you .
After a month went by i started to see the familiar pattern you see when someone is full of shit .
This guy was just trying to slow the process down and drag it out as long as possible .
With the vehicles motor still in pieces i fronted him and no surprises he never returned the next day .
I did however get a drunken call a few days later abusing me for various things .
I have since put every thing back together and we are at a stale mate at the moment .
The ecu is responding for the injectors to work , so my hope is friday the new on should arrive .
This has been a very learning experience once again in trusting people .
