I'm a guy with a Unimog U500...

Hi All, I am a guy with a 2004 U500 Unimog. In the Summer ( wildfire season) the truck wears a fire truck package on the back and the rest of the year it wears a camper, that I built. We contract wildland fire fighting services to the U.S. BLM anf the USFS. We travel nationwide for fires and emergencies. I have four-wheeled all over the American West and Baja, in all sorts of vehicles, previous to obtaining my Mog. I am located about 50 miles North of Truckee, Ca. in a small Plumas county town. I snowmobile, ride ATVs and ski alot, when there is snow. I have fabricated several fire truck pump packages and other Big Boy toys, in my home shop. I love traveling to the Black Rock desert and spending time sitting in hot springs in Nevada. Thirty years ago I did the Rubicon trail in a 1959 Unimog, the last 16 miles was with only 3 wheels- the fourth wheel broke-off and we were unable to do a field repair so we drove it out!
