Highlights

Highlight: HS315 - Parker
Who doesn't love a hill climb, even better is when it is an bonus route on the way to somewhere. HS315 is just that, this desert side route changes up the drive of a dirt road by adding a couple moderate hill climbs. But once on top of the hill, you are introduced to a 360 view of the surround desert seeing all the way from Presidents Choice to nearly The Duke. Thus the next time you are taking Cienega Springs Road or on your way out to The Duke, Launch Pad, or The Desert Bar, make sure you take this little side trip and enjoy what it has to offer.

Josh Noesser

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.
