I recently took my wife on a weekend birthday trip to the mountains around Blue Ridge GA. While we were exploring the country side, we stumbled upon Tank Town USA. I spoke to the guy (Todd) for a bit about his work and he was knowledgeable, friendly, outgoing, and well educated. He was closing for the day so we chatted as he wound down his equipment and cleaned up. He has three tanks (FV430 variants) on the property, an excavator, multiple army trucks and a Russian amphibious carrier (PTS class). The tanks and the excavator are for rent to drive.
We returned the next morning and opted not to purchase a car to crush ($499 option) and just go for the 10 minute drive ($50) in a tank. We walked around the tank and went inside as he explained the various parts and functions. It was her birthday so I rode a bit and ran around the lot taking pictures and video. There are hills, draws, dips, turns, and lots of fun to have in the lot. Todd rides along in the commander's cupola directing and coaching on driving. My wife had zero experience with military vehicles and she was driving after 30 seconds of instruction. There was a crushed car left over from the prior day and he allowed her to drive over this car. My wife had a huge grin on her face the entire time. She told me the ride was smooth and easy while the tank was easy to drive.
Todd is a great guy and quite enthusiastic about his work. I hope he does well and is able to expand his business. Since the place is only 1.5 hours north of Atlanta, we will definitely be back again. Thanks Todd!
