Description 

traversing into the drivers seat was a bit unnerving from the outside. Safer to come up trough the floor. No one attempted the "Indiana Jones route" over the hood. Lightning Bolts were spray painted with cardboard stencil and yellow paint on both sides of cargo 'canvas' by the first ascent party. Done in a dawn strike in early 1993.

Location 

The was a historic landmark at the 219 exit for decades. The original owner was trying to make a WW museum but I heard was throw out of town after blasting artilary pieces at local rocks. The sign still remains but the truck was removed to the "Thing" circa 1998.

Protection 

tied off slings. one rap, 90'
