Adventure Time

Hummer on-top of a hill

Check out our friend Charles and his adventures in his 1985 USMC HMMWV.

Charles put his HMMWV through the wire and definitely has gotten “bang for his buck”. After finding his chariot on Ebay, the allure of owning a true American iconic vehicle was the driving force to purchase her sight unseen. He started their relationship by driving her daily for 10 years! Truly becoming intimate with the inner workings of his HMMWV, he has probably turned every bolt on her at least twice!

Charles, accompanied with friends, answers the call for offroad adventure several times per year. They head to Rausch Creek Offroad Park in Tremont, PA at least 2-3 times a year. In May of 2011, they were exploring a new part of the park that had a bunch of man-made obstacles used for rock crawling event. One in particular caught his eye because a bunch of modified Toyota pickup’s were maneuvering around it. He decided to toss in a little “Good ole American Muscle” and conquered the hill! The Shear drop off on either side, and the lack of visibility of the obstacles in front and to the rear of his HMMWV, It definitely made the adventure more “interesting”. In Fact his 4 tires barely fit!!! Check out a few pictures below from his latest adventure.
