Highlights

Highlight: Truman - Parker
This intense wheeling... extreme 4x4... epic rock crawling... off-road extravaganza, is not for the faint of heart. Just near Parker, Arizona the Truman 4x4 Trail is full of large ledges and waterfalls. Add an extreme width restriction, and you are only asking for fun. For an additional bonus, there is an optional obstacle that is a 15+ foot vertical ledge, that's right 15 foot, you are in rollover backwards territory. Whether you are in a Toyota or a Jeep, by the time you get to the middle point of this trail you might be hoping you were in a buggy instead. That is only because this trail just seems to get harder, and hard, equaling more fun. If you dare to take on this extreme offroad trail, make sure you give yourself plenty of time and know where the nearest parts are, because you are going to have the time of your life.

Mapping Crew - California

Joshua Noesser grew up in Southern California but has lived in different parts of the country during his young adult life. Josh was first turned to four wheeling when he road with one of his friends dad up Surprise Canyon in the Panamint Valley at age14. After nearly 3 different roll overs later and a half dozen intense waterfalls, Josh was hooked. At 16 he purchased his first Jeep a CJ 7 and by 17 was putting his first locker in it. Currently, Josh is the owner and CEO of Nybble, an IT Solutions Company based in Orange County, California. Nybble isn't your normal IT company where everyone stays in and plays video games. Nybble's average company trip is out on the trails since a good amount of his staff enjoy wheeling too. As Josh likes to say, he offers the only IT Company with the ability to provide services in extreme locations. "If you want a server at the top of The Hammers, we will take care of that for you." Today you can find Josh out on the trail behind the wheel in one of his three different off-road vehicles. See the vehicles below for more information. If you ever run into Josh, please say high, he is a very friendly person and is always happy to have a new person join the group.
