This year, for the 56th annual Jeepers Jamboree there were fewer attendees than usual. We thought it was thanks to gas prices, but we were told that the year right after a big anniversary usually saw lower numbers. Also, even though we've been talking about this being the 56th annual Jeepers Jamboree, which is only true for the four-day run. There has also been a three-day run for the past 30 years that coincides with the four-day run. So, sign up for the four-day and leave civilization on a Thursday, or the three-day run and leave it all behind on a Friday. Each year, the event organizers cap the number of vehicles to 250 each day. With the required passenger, that makes for a maximum of 1000 people in camp. This year, the four-day run had 241 vehicles and the three-day had 83 vehicles.
