You are very confusing. But thanks for your odd input on jeep shows....., didn't know where you were going with any of it

Sure. Sounds great.

Mike Gardner 10-4, I will run this through the schedule for 2014 and send you a email.

Mike Gardner Hubdeep, I have Actually been thinking a talking about something like that. I'll talk to my people, you talk to yours. Lol
08-21-2013 07:37 AM
Mike Gardner No show starts out as a success. If it were closer to me I would have went down. I think it's awesome they tried to set this up and brought one people together. If you were there and didn't like what you saw how about being constructive? Give them a hand. If I could set something up with work I'd be more then happy to help out if I can. I will say that with enough notice and if they do it again next year I'll come up with my Jeeps.
08-18-2013 08:26 PM
Wheelerbob I was talking to the organizer (Bob) and he said he threw it together in 2 months time by himself. He told me that all the vendors he contacted were already booked up and could not attend. He also said he already has 37 vendors signed up for next year including Quadratec who has signed on to be the lead sponsor. He is trying to start another must attent event. They are also starting a new Jeep club (The Mid Atlantic Jeep Club). I'm sure the PA jeep show was not anything like it is today in it's first year. I'm hoping for a much better event next year.

LMAO!

We were contacted to 'help out', but then were rebuffed when we offered our ideas. They were very unorganized and really had no idea how to run a large event. This was more like a meet-and-greet in a parking lot than anything else...

Mike G- We need to hook up and compare notes. I'm thinking we could pull off a big Md Jeep Swap Meet...
08-17-2013 11:42 PM
Mike Gardner So I didn't go ... Nobody ever said anything about what it was really all about. Last thing I wanted to see was JK's with light bars.
As for a swap meet what was/wasn't there? If I came up to sell stuff it would have been Willys/CJ/YJ stuff. From what I heard it would have been a waste of my time.

Anyone have pics?

X2 on the vendors and swap meet

08-15-2013 01:48 PM
Mike Gardner So a few of my friends are thinking about going. What's the approx head count or vendor list. It's not just up the road from me. I don't mind the drive but if its a gathering I'm always up for meeting new faces but not for a show. I'd rather do that on a trail.

Thanks guys

Thou Eric and those at the jeep show wanted us to volunteer at the event.. I'm not sure we're actually ready to do this, this year.. Perhaps next year.

Another hinderance.. is that fact that I'm trying to get a jeep club together myself.. that and plan a (well desirved) vaction.. I'm waiting for the final word about the show.. then I'll have to leave it upto the boss.. Currently she isn't in the mood to spend any money on anything..
who cares!
if you show you show... if not, you don't...

Wvjeepin Yea I can't stay that long either, got a wedding to go to. But I'll be there for a few
08-03-2013 09:03 AM
JeepWranglerNation Doing just that.. As it stands, there is a 89% chance we are going to attend.. and I'll be volunteering.. The jeep (Angry Red Bird) maybe entered into the show n shine (not confermed yet)

We may not be able to stay very long.. (3 hours at the most) cause we have other important plans that day.

Aslo, Look for the "Jeep Wrangler Nation" logo/url posted on the front window.

See you there.
08-02-2013 11:49 PM
Wvjeepin Sweet man sounds good. Just passing the word around, it looks like it might be a lot of fun
08-02-2013 08:49 AM
JeepWranglerNation K, just got an email from "Eric" one of the shows support members, He informed me that I do not need to buy a swapmeet space to sell my softop.. (so look for it there) lastly.. We that we might not attend seeing how the following weekend was our trip south.. thats right its been changed again.. So it's unclear if the boss wants to attend the show.. at least this could be a way to get to work out about Jeep Wrangler Nation on tumblr, Google & Facebook.
Hell we might even volunteer to help this event.. Give us a few more days to deside..
08-02-2013 08:34 AM
Chilly03 I'll be there
07-31-2013 08:17 AM
JeepWranglerNation Got it.. will check with RedJeepGirl just to see if we have time..
