My wife and I drove down from southern Indiana today. There are already many Jeeps in the area. We were here in Mid July for a week. This evening we saw more jeeps on one drive through Pigeon Forge than we saw the entire week we were here in July.

The numbers are going to be crazy!!!!!
We left West Central Ohio last night and stopped in Corbin, KY. Be there soon! There's already a ton of Jeeps in the area on a "normal" day, so I can't wait to see more :like:

Wish there was a way to tell a fellow forum members.

I will be the guy wearing a Jeep shirt and hat. If you see me come up and say hello. Or just Jeep wave from a distance. Kidding of course.

I went in today because last year the crowd was shoulder to shoulder. I can’t believe how empty it was today vs LY. But I’m sure Friday and especially Saturday will be busy. I wish they would let only jeeps park in the lot. Really the building and vendors don’t do much for me. It’s seeing everyone’s Jeep that is the cool part of this.

Yeah I agree with that. I just liked looking at people's Jeeps. I guess I was expecting to see cool stuff from vendors and maybe some decent prices. But hey, I'm here in the mountains so I'm happy :like:

If your in town for the invasion, make sure to make the drive through the GSM National Park towards Cades Cove and visit the nice folks at Cades Cove Jeep Out Post over in Townsend, TN and then the folks at SM Keep Outfitters in Pigeon Forge area.

Yes
We've been 5yrs in a row. I have to say there were less vendors Thursday inside and outside. But I attribute this to the plague and social distancing. The vendors are spaced out a bit and I'm sure that there are some no-shows because of it.
We were in line well before they opened the doors. We shopped around a bit then went to the Jeep for a drink and a break. We we went back inside there was a huge line to get in.
Still lots of vendors and show specials.
We were out and about until late evening and it seems like the Jeepers are starting to pack in?
We've been seeing some really nice rigs.
Lots of Jeep waves going on. Have some fun!
