      Truck surfing, that sounds amazing – interesting to see some pictures of it. Even Indiana Jones wouldn’t have lasted for three hours 🙂

      Hi Jim…

      It is pretty amazing and thrilling!Of obvious reasons, I don’t have any photos “in action” (that would require 3-4 arms), but the truck above was my saviour of the day.

      Not so sure about the Indiana Jones statement, though 😉
