This afternoon at 13.00 hours the team of skilled professionals working for Santek Trailers in Riverside, California, USA, clocked out and got ready for the party.
Ruben went to a big Mexican supermarket with a restaurant section to pick up the food ordered the day before.
However, in the turmoil of the vivid supermarket, somehow the order had not made it. But because nothing is ever a problem in 20 minutes they would have the meals for 15 people ready.
Ruben had quickly some Pacifico’s, the best beer from Mexico, bought a supply of the international soft drink Coca Cola and once this was all done the food was ready.
In one of the halls the team improvised a table and chairs and enjoyed the food.
There were no speeches, no drinking of alcoholic beverages as they are not allowed on the Santek Trailer’s premises and nobody danced with the beautiful Gail Harris.
But it was a great atmosphere of comradeship and feeling of having accomplished something exceptional.
Roberto, the simpatico leader of the team, was told that not only had they managed to build a fabulous expedition vehicle but that also the whole process of building had been a great joy to experience.
Gratitude was expressed which was warmly returned.
Later this afternoon some shots were made of the finished Fuso Santek.
In an upcoming posting some specific details of this unique expedition vehicle will be highlighted.
The guys who did it !
Bravo ! Bravo ! Bravo !
