Wandering around Coal Country…


On the trail in Pennsylvania…


29 September 2019: Took the slow road back from Women’s Wheeling Day and made time for some scenic trails as fall colors started to show up in the woodlands of Pennsylvania. A great relaxing day out away from the crowds…



Women’s Wheeling Day 2019…


On the trails at WWD2019 at Rausch Creek…


28 September 2019: Trail Guiding a Green group at Rausch Creek Offroad Park for Women’s Wheeling Day 2019 and this year’s event was bigger than ever with over 200 participants. Some of the ladies attending were hitting the trails for their very first time! Our group included a mix of experienced and first-time offroaders, and we were honored to also be guiding two of the event sponsors — Quadratec and Off Brand Products — who joined us out on the trails. The annual event is organized by Christie Vinson and Susan Ash of Jeep Girls Rock! with training and educational support from Kyle Buchter of the Offroad Consulting group …



Ready for Women’s Wheeling Day …


Drivers gather at O’Neal’s Pub for a Meet-and-Greet …


27 September 2019: The parking lot at O’Neals was full of Jeeps and other 4-Wheel Drive vehicles as women (and men) gathered for the “Meet-and-Greet” social event prior to tomorrow’s Women’s Wheeling Day. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and get to know some of the new folks who will be attending the trail runs tomorrow …



Exploring Long Island…


Finding wilderness out east…


16 September 2019: Getting out around Long Island in search of “wilderness” within reach of suburbia has led to some interesting places while doing the #ReWildYourLife challenge. Making plans to explore some of these areas more completely in the future…


PREVIOUS NOTES FROM THE ROAD >

THIS MONTH:

Back to Pennsylvania Coal Country to guide for the 2019 Women’s Wheeling Day at Rausch Creek Offroad Park hosted by Jeep Girls Rock. The day focuses on learning, enjoying the trails and meeting new friends, and is for all trail levels, from beginners to advanced. Female Guides will be assigned to each group and will encourage those who have never wheeled before as they build confidence out on the trails and learn what their vehicle is capable of (guys are welcomed to attend and ride along with women drivers at this family event) …


COMING UP SOON:

Heading out to Phoenix in October to join the Girl Gang Garage ladies and help out with the All-Female Build project lead by Bogi Lateiner. Set up in 2018, Girl Gang Garage acts as a catalyst of change by providing women of all ages with open and uninhibited access to hands-on training and initiatives that introduce this underrepresented audience to the many transformative careers within the automotive industry. The goal is to empower women and provide them the tools to redefine their identities and ultimately breakdown the barriers that have limited their access or awareness to the many career opportunities within the trades. Girl Gang Garage is more than a physical location it is a living breathing network of women, ranging from novices to industry veterans all coming together with the singular goal of growing stronger together and developing new opportunities for the next generation…


Joining in the Ladies Offroad Network “Takeover” at Bogi’s Garage on October 5-6 to help get this years SEMA build ready to show – a 1956 Chevy Truck! With only 24 days left before it’s unveiling, the LON team will work together to help get this vehicle done…


Attending the Ladies Offroad Challenge Top Ten Weekend in October as one of the “highest-points” challenge participants from this summer’s 10-week challenge. This four-day adventure, “somewhere in southern Californie” is led by Charlene Bower and will be full of surprises…
