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 …



Exploring Long Island…


Finding wilderness out east…


15 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…



Close Encounters…


Getting closer to nature…


5 September 2019: Hiking in the Caumsett State Park and getting to see this Red Tailed Hawk up close was a big treat. The #ReWildYourLife challenge has provided some great opportunities for wildlife encounters thus far and it is only the beginning …



Trying some Skying…


Fun with ReWilding challenges…


3 September 2019: Having fun with the #ReWildYourLife challenge activities doing things like “skying,” which is as simple as taking 30 minutes outside to “look up” and just watch the sky. A great way to unwind and relax after a hectic summer of events…



Long Island Shores…


Exploring close to home…


1 September 2019: Back to home base on Long Island for a few weeks to enjoy the last days of summer out east. Exploring with a purpose for the next few weeks as part of the #ReWildYourLife challenge which is designed to bring us all a bit closer to nature and help us tune in to our environment…


PREVIOUS NOTES FROM THE ROAD >

THIS MONTH:

The #ReWildYourLife challenge is a self-paced challenge with activities designed to be completed over 30 days. Created by the We Are Wildness group the challenge was intended as an antidote to “modern life” where we are so busy with to-do lists that keep us distracted and cut off from the natural world. Studies show the positive health benefits of spending time in the natural world including lowered stress, increased creativity, feelings of peace and an enhanced sense of wonder. The challenge activities are based around spending at least 30 minutes a day outside in a natural space, which is the perfect amount of time to to relax, calm your breathing and adjust your senses to the more subtle world of Nature…


COMING UP SOON:

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) …
