TEN OLIVER YEARS AGO by Larry Mountainborn Harmon



By Larry Mountainborn Harmon

Ten years have went by ever so fast ! And, it seems just like yesterday. It was well after dark as we had left the Oliver Plant in Hohenwald. The factory crew had stayed over late to finish up a few things and we hit the road. It had been a long day and candy bars and coffee lost the battle to sheer old fatigue. Jackson Tennessee was coming up in the distance and we were looking for a place to get a few winks. As it turned out it was Sam’s club and there was an I Hop nearby for an early breakfast. Much earlier, it turned out, than we had hoped for ! This grainy analog cell phone video has been watched on you tube for most of that ten years and surprisingly it has accumulated nearly 43 thousand views ! Still half asleep, after the street sweeper passed right by us shaking the trailer and jarring us out of a dead sleep, I grabbed that old style Motorola cell phone and began videoing.


Early video of the first retail available Oliver Legacy Elite, hull #3, owned by Larry & Betty Harmon, the Mountainborn’s.

About the time I turned the phone off, Betty came out and said, “ I’ve rounded everything up, let’s go to I Hop”

On the west side of that exit in Jackson Tennessee, we discovered during a later visit to the factory, there is a Gander Mountain outdoor supply that was much quieter with fun out of doors type shopping.

Have you ever had a Wal Mart or Sam’s Club wee hours wake up ?
