Built for Any Vehicle

Jeeps, Toyotas, Buggy, SXS or ?

It doesn't matter what kind of offroad vehicle you drive, you are welcome to join us!! You do NOT need a vehicle either day, but especially not on Saturday - leave it at home. We will be working in a closed environment with all the tools you need available. (Just bring gloves!) 

If you join for Sunday's trail adventure (optional) you can either drive or tow your vehicle to the staging area. We will be coming out to the same location to load up your trailer, if necessary. I ask that you do a proper pre-check of your vehicle so we can avoid any challenges for the group.

If you are flying in, are usually a co-driver, or don't have a vehicle yet, you can still join us on Sunday as a passenger. Trust me, you will have a GREAT time jumping between vehicles! No Stress!

  • If you have a programmable radio, please have it set to BFG Relay.  If not, I will provide you with a Rugged Radio for the day.

Come Hangout!

The unspoken best part about the Trail Training classes is getting to know other ladies that are JUST LIKE YOU! Girls that don't mind getting dirt under their nails and wanting to learn about offroading. It is a great time to meet new friends ~ some we have watched grow into long-term friends over the last few years!

And We Eat! While you are with us, we will host you in our fancy style. You will have multiple drink options and snacks all day. Lunch will be provided both days and Dinner / Dessert on Saturday night! When you register you will be asked if you have any food allergies so I can design the perfect menu for the group!

SHOPPING! We have a full store set up that you can shop on Saturday. It has Youth and Adult (Newborn to 4XL) Ladies and Mens Tshirts, Sweatshirts and Long Sleeve Shirts. Dog Shirts, Onesies, Hats, Beanies Jewelry, Color Street Nails, DoTerra Oils and of course our entire line of Ladies Offroad Network clothing that we can make on the spot for you!
