How About A Heavy Equipment Vacation?

Dig This in Colorado Springs CO

Vacationers often head to Steamboat Springs Colorado for a variety of reasons, but going to dig a hole in the ground???

At DIG THIS adults can climb up on an excavator and dig a big hole in the ground, then move to a bulldozer and fill in that same hole.  If you spend your days stuck behind a desk, maybe digging around in a 10 acre plot of dirt sounds like fun.  It takes virgins 20 minutes or so to get the hand of the controls.

It's not only an adventure vacation option, but businesses are finding unique ways to use the heavy equipment for training purposes.  I guess learning to push a 1 ton boulder around an obstacle course can teach you skills that can help in business. Check it out at
