BHM Offroad went down to Rausch Creek to participate in a training class provided by Off Road Consulting. Women's Wheeling Day at Rausch Creek 2019 has stepped up to the next level and now educating and training thier guides for a better understanding of thier roll and responsibilities. Making sure we are all on the same page and going over what we need to ask our guests prior to hitting the trail. Example, did they air down, attachment points, communication, understanding 4 low and 4 high, and knowing your spotter. Having the right tools and information for the trails will help everyone have a great time during WWD 2019.
Off Road Consulting did an amazing job, and you can tell they love what they do. Having the patience to work with people in thier fearful moments as they step out of thier comfort zone is a challenge in its self. Kyle from Off Road Consulting explained everything very well, and constantly reassuring us we are ok.
BHM Offroad looks forward to WWD every year. Every year we meet new faces and help so many get through the trails and end the day with a huge smile. September 28th at Rausch Creek, women join us for a great weekend, and learn some new skills.
Special thanks to Christie Vinson and Susan Ash for putting this awesome event together, and look forward to many more.
After the training was over a few friends joined us and we got to play on the rocks. Thank you JoMarie Fecci for the awesome shots of Patches.
BHM Offroad Test Facility LLC is partnering with NY Offroad Ladies to help collect useful items for homeless women in areas throughout NY. BHM Offroad is collecting for the Binghamton YWCA, Jordynn Lynn Lee from Mohawk Valley Mud Crawlers has collected items for Mohawk Valley YWCA and Babies. Kristie Moore and Jennifer Louise is working with Twisted Axle 4x4 out of Syracuse and collecting for Syracuse Rescue Mission and Salvation Army. Kristie and Jennifer just hosted a Wine Tasting and Network'ing event for Ladies Offroad Network and collected 2 boxes full of basic needs and clothing. Amy Rice Martin from S.T.O.R.C. Southern Tier Offroad Club 4x4 is collecting for St. Johns Community Service/ Rescue Mission. There is such a need in these local communities that could help some people in some very tough situations. Join us in our mission to help as many women that are homeless or in desperate need of feminine hygiene products.
When was the last time that you though about what the homeless need? What do they use to clean if they can't afford food, how do they brush thier teeth? What about that pesky Mother Nature, could you imagine not having the proper protection to avoid a large mess. Please if you have time just stop at the dollar store and grab a few items that will help out a lady in need. We are going to be collecting item through June 23 of 2019, when Ladies Weekend at BHM Offroad arrives. This is just a bunch of Offroad ladies that wanted to give back for a great cause. We all work hard to create events throughout the year for offroading fun, this specific event is for women who want to learn and help others.

Autumn Fun Poker Run was a great hit. BHM had a large group and a lot of the local business got some extra business . Great time for the whole family.
They started at BHM Offroad Test Facility, and went to the Outpost in McDonough NY. They stopped at the CCC men's work camp from the 1930's. On to Oxford to the veterans home, and to other great local family owned businesses. Thanks to everyone that cam out to play, and to the Poker Run participants.
BHM Offroad went to Oktoberfest to assist Northeast Offroad Adventures with Hunter Mountains Offroad Addition 2018. We got the 2016 Toyota Tacoma out on the trails that the customers enjoyed so much.
