A quick look back at S.PLH's trucking Adventures this week!
S.PLH and Friends Impressive Lineup!
Starting with last Saturday's (12th Dec) American Truck Simulator convoys, We explored more of the recently added and beautiful scenery of ProMods Canada, heading down to the also new region of Colorado to complete a few more World of Trucks Exploring Colorado event jobs!

Then, on Sunday (13th Dec) it was S.PLH's long awaited return to the ETS2 ProMods map! Starting in the far southerly port of Dover, the convoy headed north, traveling practically the full length of the UK, all the way to the top of Scotland!

Boarding the ferry leaving the UK
After a couple of quick ferry crossing from the Port of Thurso, with a quick layover in the Faroe Islands, the convoy landed in Seyðisfjörður (Iceland). Here everyone regrouped in a small parking lot near the port, taking in the beautiful scenery surrounded by ice and passing boats. This was a nice spot to wait for Pepper, who was up to his usual antics!

Iceland's immediate beauty
As we rolled through the beautiful scenery of Iceland, it was suggested that we take a slight detour to our route, to head up the F208, one of Iceland's more "off-road" passages. So being remarkably sensible for S.PLH, we stopped off at a remote service station to top off our diesel tanks, ready for the climbs, twists and turns that lay ahead of us!

Topping off our fuel tanks
The F208 road provided many challenges to overcome, including tunnels, water crossings, and long twisty climbs avoiding several oncoming convoys!
Passing other brave convoys!
More off-road than on-road!
We made it through mostly unscathed by the experience and arrived at our destination of Vestmannaeyjar, with a race to the finish as Pepper and couple others rushed to drop off their cargos in time!

Rounding off a fantastic weeks worth of trucking was Fridays (18th Dec) Convoy Security Group Christmas Convoy, which we attended in full Christmas attire, including Christmas themed trucks and trailers! Attending from S.PLH was Austin Phoenix, Fragged-BE- and Rauno727! The ConSec Group convoy took us from the Norssken depot in Karlskrona (Sweden) to Helsinki (Finland), we continued on to Lahti to drop off our World Of Trucks Event Christmas Trailers!

S.PLH joined the other VTC's in wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!
Now joined by Bird104 and Ibrakeforcake, our drivers hadn't had enough! And wishing to continue racking up the miles towards the Christmas event goal, continued on to Vilnius (Lithiania), on to Felixstowe (England) via Calais, and finally back over the Channel to Amsterdam (Netherlands). With a couple of spills and incidents along the way! Well done our drivers!
