Mapping Crew - Arizona
After spending his early years in the Air Force traveling around Asia looking for adventure Bill has now settled down in Arizona and loves to spend time exploring the remote expanses of the West. He grew up as a Kansas country boy getting his Jeep stuck in as many places as possible. He is now, however, a recovering Jeep owner and currently in the process of building up a 2013 Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition. Bill has a passion for adventure travel to remote and hard to get to locations that offer amazing scenery and interesting historical background, and has a knack for biting off more than I can chew. He is currently focused on building up a rig for hard core overlanding/camping and enjoys finding beautiful hidden campsites in the backcountry with lots of activities nearby (hiking, rock climbing, fishing, etc.) While having two small kids has slowed him down some, it allows him to share his love of adventure and the outdoors with his children and he hopes to focus on some longer aggressive overland loop routes with lots of family friendly things to see and do along the way.
I am currently building up my 2013 Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition and I have been extremely impressed with the rig so far. I have a stage 5 ICON lift installed, Proline wheels with 33" Toyo A/T (will soon be upgrading to 34" Toyo M/T), Gobi roof rack with Hi-Lift Jack attachment, Rhino Rack Dome 1300 rear awning, TRED Pro traction board x4, and trying to decide which roof top tent I want. I recently just finished installing a dual battery system, National Luna fridge/freezer, and a slide out kitchen/camp stove. Additionally, I just installed Shrockworks front & rear bumpers and full skids. Also the Trail Edition doesn't come with third row seating so I installed an aftermarket Little Passenger seat, facing backward for my kids (6 and 8 years old, they love riding in the back on nice sunny days with the rear window down listening to some tunes.) Also, need to get some lights and a CB/Ham system figured out.
