The People’s Convoy truck protest welcomed into Guernsey County
The People’s Convoy, an estimated 30-mile-long convoy of trucks, RVs and automobiles, arrived for a stopover in Old Washington Thursday evening, greeted by local and out-of-state residents who came to show their support.
The offramp at the 186 exit on I-70 East was lined on both sides by cars and supporters holding signs and waving flags. Some said they had been waiting there for at least five hours to welcome the convoy.

The People’s Convoy, according to its media release, is a peaceful and unified transcontinental movement that left from Southern California, on Feb. 23, with plans to arrive in the Washington D.C., beltway area today. Its mission is to see the end of the declaration of the national emergency concerning the COVID-19 pandemic and restore the Constitution.
Freedom, COVID-19 restrictions and patriotism brought supporters to the trucker protest
The beginning of convoy arrived in Old Washington at the Shenandoah Truck Plaza (Speedway) on Wintergreen Road where they planned to spend the night at about 5:40 p.m., to be greeted by supporters such as Sharon Hanning who came from West Virginia.
“I think our country is being taken over by people that don’t have our best interest at heart and we are just here to wave our flags and support the truck drivers that are brave enough to do this,” Hanning said.
Susan Johnson of Dandridge, Tennessee, said she had been following the convoy on TV and wasn’t going to miss this.
“I love it”, Johnson said of the convoy. “I have a lot of Canadian friends. I watched the Canadian convoy. I felt that it was really important that we support the USA, the Constitution the Bill of Rights.”
Johnson, who had also been in Washington D.C. during the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, said she came for the freedom and to be with like-minded people.
