Once pro snowboarder Austin Smith sets his mind to something, that something typically gets done.
It’s a trait pertains to snowboard-related activities and, apparently, fire truck-related ones, too.
After his brother bought it on eBay and then basically left it in a driveway to rot, Smith took possession of a 1953 GMC fire truck and set about converting it into a massive mobile home. He started by fitting the interior with wood floors, a full kitchenette with cabinets, a bed and a couch. Then he topped the GMC off with electricity, plumbing, solar panels and a wood stove.
He’s currently parked in the Mount Bachelor lot for the winter — after hitting speeds of up to 30 MPH on the way there — and is already thinking about heading to the beach for the summer.
If the bonfire gets unruly, well, you know who to call.
