What in the World?

Hi! I am Bill “WoofDriver” Helman–dog advocate and outdoorsman. I have developed my own brand of Urban Mushing, incorporating specialized equipment, one-of-a-kind bikes, and a sense of fun. I call this “WooFDriving.”

I have explored my home territory of the mid-Atlantic corridor of the United States extensively over the last twenty-plus years, venturing as far north as the Cape Cod Rail Trail in Massachusetts.

Often when my team and I are out on the trail people stop us to ask questions about what in the world we are doing. It’s true that with our fleet of vehicles and equipment we can be a bit of a spectacle. Then, of course, there are my four beautiful dogs—Princess, Zarro, Chase, and Jag. This website is one way for you to find out more!

 


 

I devote my life to dogs. I have owned huskies for two decades and it’s because of them that my life is full of joy and adventure. It’s my goal to share that with other people.

In order to do that, I’ve created a resource that compiles answers to some of the common questions people ask me. You can also find out where I am adventuring in real time, see what vehicle we are using in different terrains, find out what the weather is, explore our weekly stats, and more.

For an added element of fun, I have also included ways to connect with me and my other dog-related projects. Get more information on the Presidential Pet Museum, listen to my original dog-related music, read the latest edition of my online magazine Rolling Bone, and more.

Text any of the following words to the number 908-AWESOME (that’s, 908-293-7663) to see how we can connect!

WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY, or MORE

Don’t be alarmed! It’s just Bill and his team getting ready to run, or coming back from a wild adventure!

WooFDriving is no job for your everyday ordinary minivan. In order to handle a traveling pack of four huskies, a team of people, all the gear for DogPowered Go-Carting, and the equipment to document his adventures, Bill needed something rugged that could haul a lot of stuff. That’s why he helped design the custom built 6-Door Ford Excursion to handle the load. Equipped with a diamond steel-plated roof deck with an electric winch to load and unload DogPowered Go-Carts, a custom built hitch-mounted DogPowered VERTICAL carrier rack, and another electric winch to load and unload the rack, It’s no wonder Bill calls this The Jumbo Jet!

A Dog

Largely designed and/or customized by Bill himself, the DogPowered Go-Cart and other vehicles he uses were made with the dogs’ safety in mind. As technology progresses and the available materials improve, Bill’s bikes do, too.

Each bike is suited to different purposes and terrains. For instance, one of Bill’s newest bikes, The Low Glider, was intentionally designed to be minimalist and lightweight. In comparison, The BigRig, which is a tandem four-wheel bike, is a monster! Some of the carts in Bill’s fleet can even seat up to 4 people, and he’s been known to ride around with a musician or two playing some of his original dog-themed music! You never know what you might find on the trail when the WooFDriver is around.

The places we like to travel are picturesque, filled with gorgeous nature and historical landmarks. Some trails the team travels often, but there are some they won’t have the opportunity to explore again for a long time. It’s Bill’s goal in life to gather moments rather than possessions and he loves to relive some of the majestic scenes when he is not out in the wild. He also loves to share them with others.

To capture the most incredible views, Bill flies drones, which he calls AirWOOF1 in honor of his dogs and in reference to the official aircraft that carries the United States President. (Fun fact: Bill’s deep love of history lead him to curate the Presidential Pet Museum.)

Taking footage of all trips is awesome, but even more important, the drones allow Bill and his team to constantly evaluate and better understand the dogs’ form, movement, and interaction with the DogPowered Go-Carts when they are out on the trail. This allows him to make sure all his dogs are safe and happy. To see more on AirWOOF1 CLICK HERE

Bill Helman, known by many as WooFDriver, is an animal advocate and outdoorsman who has devoted his life to dogs.

Princess, Zarro, Chase, and Jag ( a.k.a.The WooFPAK) are Bill’s loyal companions in life and on the trails, mushing all over the east coast of the US.

Whether it’s seeking out the supernatural while wearing night-vision cameras on one of their Midnight Mushing rides, free-ranging at the cattle farm, lure-coursing at the horse track, or getting spiffy at the doggie salon after a serious romp in the mud, the WooFPAK is a team looking for adventure!

The DogPowered Go-Cart runs the Bill and his team all over the East Coast of the USA, along trails that are specific to biking, as well as country roads, city roads, and state parks. Depending on which model of DogPowered Go-Cart he uses, Bill can venture into more rugged style terrain, including beaches and snow-covered areas. He’s even taken the dogs to the White House!

We can only wish at this point, but if you have a connection with Team Budweiser the WoofPak is always game for a new adventure!

The DogPowered Go-Cart will occasionally make a visit to a local horse training track to stay in shape and get some socialization and fun with the Horses. These horses are Belgian Drafting horses and similar in stature to the Clydesdale horses who often appear in Budweiser commercials.

Look into the beguiling blue eyes of the WOOF AXX, a guitar designed to combine Bill’s love of dogs AND music.

Bill believes that dogs and music go hand in hand. Dogs howl to make their own music and now they’ve even got Bill in on the act! Inspired by his dogs and his DogPowered Dog-Cart Lifestyle Bill has chronicled his life with dogs and created an entire catalog of original dog-related music.

Written by Bill and recorded by award-winning musicians from around the world, the collection is not to be missed, and this guitar is a big part of the music. With ice blue eyes that light up, the WOOF AXX shreds like the dogs running down the trail. For more about Bill’s music and the WOOF AXX CLICK HERE.
