She isn't any Jeep Girl, she is well known in the area for her advocacy and promotion of safe and responsible wheeling along with getting more women wheelin' and wrenchin'. She is The Vermont Jeepgirl
In her own words..
Sue Miller-Norton is an avid off-roader and operates The Vermont Jeepgirl. In this role, Sue shares the off-road adventures she has with her beloved Jeep along with build ups of projects and modifications she does on the Jeep. She will be offering training classes to teach newcomers to off-roading do's and don'ts. Included are basic repair how-to's such as u-joint replacement, brake work and recovery techniques for when you get stuck.
Sue is a big believer in women in the off-road community, and not in the background or passenger seat but women driving off road and wrenching on their own rides. There are a lot of women out there that would like to do it and just need the encouragement. The Vermont Jeepgirl supports trail responsibility and The Tread Lightly concept. The Vermont Jeepgirl is an innovative leader in her abilities to wrench, build and wheel her Jeep.
Sue is a qualified off-roader with 30 years off road experience that began when she inherited her grandmothers Ford Pinto. Sue is no stranger to off roading from her beginnings with her Ford Pinto that lead to her owning a full size Ford Bronco, GMC Jimmy, Toyota Land Cruiser, a slew of ATV's, Ford Ranger, Ford F250's and her current family of Jeeps. Sue has more than 30 years of off-road experience in these vehicles. Prior to starting The Vermont Jeepgirl , Sue spent several years as a self-employed lawn care/landscaper and operated a painting & renovation business which included becoming a crane operator for her husbands tree service.
Sue helps newcomers to experienced off-roaders. The Vermont Jeepgirl will be offering a wide range of programs and services - from entry level basics such as what to bring with you on an off-road adventure to how to upright a rolled vehicle. Drawing on her 30 years of experience of wrenching and building off-road rigs Sue now focuses mainly on helping newcomers to the off-road family, both men and women learn proper techniques in off-roading, wrenching and trail etiquette. Sues background which included learning rigging techniques for tree removals provided the perfect foundation for rigging and winching techniques for off-road recovery.
Passionate about her Jeeps and her off-road adventures, Sue founded The Vermont Jeepgirl to share her knowledge and adventures with others in the off-road community.
One of the Vermont Jeepgirls most memorable adventures was when Sue met Opal Justice for the first time in Nashville, TN in November 2011. Sue had put together a video montage for Opal Justices song "Good Girls & Dirty Jeeps" in 2010 after the release of her first CD. Opals song, “Good Girls & Dirty Jeeps” is the definition of Sues life.
