Jeep Girls NL

The Faces of Jeep interview with Pat Atkins founder of the Jeep Girls NL group


FOJ-[Natasha]: “Why did you choose Jeep?”

Pat: “After a young girl caused a head-on-collision with my Honda Civic, I knew I would not drive a car anymore. After looking at multiple SUV’s, I sat behind the wheel of a Jeep, and the rest was history!”

FOJ-[Natasha]: “How long have you been wheeling?”

Pat: “I have been wheeling for nearly 4 years.”

FOJ-[Natasha]: “What type of wheeling is your favorite?”

Pat: “My favorite wheeling would have to be mud and trails. I have done, and still do a little rock climbing, but it’s not one of my favorites.”

FOJ-[Natasha]: What inspired you to start the Jeep Girls NL group?

Pat: “I created Jeep Girls NL after being in one particular co-ed group that had way too much drama…having a group for girls only lets the girls talk about their Jeeps without feeling intimidated. Whether it’s a stock Jeep or one that is fully modified, all Jeeps are welcomed in our group! We have girls of all ages…ranging from 17-60!”

FOJ-[Natasha]: “Does the group hold events? Meet and Greets?”

Pat: “Jeep Girls NL have meet nights every Tuesday. We have a girls Jeepover party at least 3 times per year (a camping Jeepover is coming up in September). We host the Purple Day for Epilepsy Jeep Run each year in March, host the annual Go Topless Day event in May, and we take part in off-road runs/cook-ups with our coed group Crawl the Rock.”

FOJ-[Natasha]: “What are your future goals for the group?”

Pat: “For the future, I am hoping to get the group more involved with community events and hopefully, one day, meet other like-minded Jeep Girls from such groups as The Faces of Jeep and Canadian Jeep Girls.”

FOJ-[Natasha]: “Thank you Pat for sharing about the Jeep Girls NL group and your personal Jeep journey. The Faces of Jeep would love to come and visit with you and the Jeep Girls NL. Maybe one day we will make this happen.” 😀
