Truckhaven was a really fun run and Ollie and Tom did a great job of guiding us around and keeping the pack tight. We had a couple "oohps" moments and got to visit the famous "Phone Booth" as well. Several of us visited Fonts Point on the way back and watched the sunset.

Volhoo's Oohps! Notice the angle of the high lift jack base and the dirt on the bumper. The strength of the FourTreks mounts and the ARB bumper were outstanding. This shot was taken just after Vince exited the Arch initially without a spotter. Luckily the least expensive part is what bent!
