Highlight: Elbe Hills OHV - Busywild Trail
The BusyWild Trail is the premier trail of the Elbe Hills OHV area. This was the trail JKX "The JK Experience" featured in 2014, it was also the trail that did the most damage to their rigs. In season, the "Busy" is just another trail with rocks and stumps; out of season, (winter) it is to say the least, a mess, a bumper crushing, diff smashing, body denting, window breaking, mirror ripping, mess! Dugout walls of dirt, rocks and tree roots can dwarf even the most lifted vehicles. Off camber holes on tight turns where the only way around are to use your rock sliders or even your mirrors to push you into the right track. Dual lockers, body armor, a winch, and a minimum of 36" tires are the recommended equipment; with good lines and determination a lesser built rig can conquer the trail, but it is not recommended out of season.

Luke Myers

Mapping Crew - Washington

Luke is originally from rural Minnesota, after high school he joined the Army and traveled the world over his 20 year career. His final stop, and where he ended his military career was Washington state. He retired from the Army in 2011 and has been working as a Military Software systems consultant since that day. He has been into the off-road scene since he was 7 years old, when his dad bought him a 3-wheeler and he built his first race-track in the pasture. Since those days he has had motorcycles, quads, go-karts, mini-bikes, trucks, 4 different kinds of Jeeps and an AMC Eagle (station wagon). His current "toy" is a 2008 Jeep Wrangler; Luke and his family enjoy exploring the world through the windshield view of that Jeep. Luke loves taking new people out on trails and takes pride in getting a newbie through a trail that is definitely more than they ever thought they could handle. His favorite type of trail is one that takes all day to go 5 miles and never stops challenging the driver.
