Our next car? Not!


Saw this at the Cranberry Festival in Bandon.

Can you believe the gumptions of this owner?  Right here, among environmentalists, folks who  hug trees, burn trash with permits, are the first to establish bottle recycling,  set up Marine Reserves voluntarily,  set up fishing quotas and land management guidelines. 

A Wilderness Assault Vehicle at a Cranberry Festival?

Seriously, he is lucky to leave the parking lot with his scalp on!

I'll bet he's a real delight to know.. geesh. Some folks just need to be noticed.. and he sure was.

ellen abbott said...

He's probably strutting around like the king of the hill.

Brian Miller said...

you know...i think he probably loves the attention...why else would you drive that and not just have a large gun rack...

KarenG said...

Is that a personal vehicle or a corporation?

Grandmother said...

Figurati! Ma vai!

Patricia said...

Looks like "a testosterone spill on aisle 9."

Eva Gallant said...

I love Patricia's comment! That's quite a vehicle!

Marion said...

This is America where we all have certain freedoms. Not to be 'scalped' because we differ with another's lifestyle is one of them.

Eleonora said...

What is Wilderness Assault? A hunter, or someone who dislikes wilderness?

Whatever that term means, Patricia said it right.

Cranberry Festival sounds fun!

LOL

The Writing Instinct said...

Respecting people's choice and freedom is one thing, but to deliberately show up at this sort of fair in this sort of vehicle...that is passive aggression in the very least.

Miss you,

This guy, or was it a woman, must have a virility problem. Send him to Cheri's psychiatrist.

Robyn said...

What is that car? What is that on the roof?
I've never seen anything like that before. At first I thought it was some kind of camper van.... but they look like missiles on the roof.
That's strange!

I love what you share here Rosaria xx

Weirdos everywhere..although I'm not sure what it is, I can guess what it means! Sorry he ruined the day for you!

Phoenix said...

LOL! I'm not even sure what Wilderness Assault looks like... I hope he has a sense of humor and I hope the other people there do too :)v

Nancy said...

Seriously!!

Donna said...

Reminds you of those people in Wal-Mart e-mails....only this one is OUTside!!!

ds said...

The mind boggles.

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Weird. Clueless.

wv: mater
matter: yes, these people matter because they ARE so clueless and there are a lot of them.

Rob-bear said...

Seriously weird! Frightening.

I'm surprised the police or military didn't check out this individual.

I wonder if this person is a NRA member who has just taken things up a notch?

Hope said...

interesting! you just never know, now a days

Jo said...

Let's hope it's just a tongue in cheek joke -- a spot of irony.

A Cuban In London said...

The cheek of it! Did he have his tyres slashed? You know leprechauns still exist. :-)

Greetings from London.

Arkansas Patti said...

Gee, I wonder what he is compensating for?

Gaston Studio said...

I agree with Brian, he just wanted to be noticed; unfortunately, it was for the wrong reason.

Susan Erickson said...

He actually painted that statement in Pink! I think maybe he needs a little therapy or something....can't imagine what he plans on assaulting!

Granny Annie said...

I would probably drive one if I had it?

Retirement has me eating more onions than I have in my life.

becky at abbeystyle said...

Yikes! And I thought the Hummers were bad when they parked in our condo lot!!!

Murr Brewster said...

Oh, I don't know. Looks like he has a sense of humor. Charge him an extra eight bucks per for gas and send him on his way.

Dawn said...

hehe....looks like he was either looking for trouble, or.......

yah-
I guess looking for trouble:))
Hilarious!

karen said...

It looks extremely unappealing, and rather scary! It suddenly reminded me a bit of a vehcile I saw the other day with decorative hangman's noose hanging from the mirror (?!)

willow said...

Wacky attention seeker!

What a nerve some people have!

I agree with you but it looked suspiciously like some ofthe ambulance rides I have taken recently where I wasn't sure if the gurney and me were going sideways, tip over, or what, not to mention riding backwards looking out the back doors was not easy on the stomach.

Sniffles and Smiles said...

That's hilarious!!!! Wish someone HAD given him a hard time!!!! Would have served him right...~Janine XO

Ruth said...

Maybe it's also an armored vehicle. In which case, he's safe.

RNSANE said...

I am surprised but I wonder if, perhaps, that is this person's home as well as mode of travel. Strange, though!!

Most of the people in Bandon - where the Cranberry Festival is held - are hunters. It was not meant to offend or be any type of political commentary. It is simply meant to be a fun project transforming an old city truck into an RV. The comments on here crack me up because if you met the owners you would find that they are kind, active members of the community. Next time you try to pass judgment, maybe try to know the full story.

As an individual who has seen inside, this is an old truck that was not being used that two men took and used recycled items to make it an R.V. to go hunting in. They made it on their own and used items they either salvaged or made themselves as opposed to buying a brand new vehicle that took much more energy and resources to make. I understand the name can be deceiving but it is just a personal vehicle for hunting purposes. I have read Omnivores Dilemma and have come to find out that we cannot question hunting for one's own food unless we are willing to question the factory farms much of our meat we buy at the grocers comes from.

Finally the last two comments shed some light on this! Calm down people! The guys that built and use this are just having a little fun. They are avid hunters that take it on trips to the other side of the state. They converted it into an RV so they dont have to sleep in tents. Also, one of the guys is a cranberry grower, just having a little fun at the cranberry festival! I'm sure everyone that commented on this would really love the little hunting truck that they pull behind this RV as well :)
