Tanks for sharing! Have your own armored mini-military adventure
-- Video and Article by Devon Puglia
It's the most fun you can have on twelve wheels.
For $950 and up, Kasota, Minnesota-based Drive-a-Tank lets ordinary civilians experience a mini-military adventure, firing off a .30 caliber machine gun, piloting a British-made tank through a muddy obstacle course, and obliterating cars beneath the treads of a "Larry," a 60-ton steel behemoth.
But Drive-A-Tank is not the only option for civilians craving a military experience at home.
This month, Florida-based Incredible Adventures is offering tourists a four-day simulated counter-terrorism operation in Miami for $3,995 that includes boot camp, martial arts training, and instruction in "a proven method of kidnapping, used on terrorists in the Middle East."
