As Homer's Odysseus struggled on his epic wandering, the Carbon County Art Odyssey struggled not against Scylla and Charybdis but against a rainy weekend and the challenges inherent in a fledgling event.

According to Odyssey coordinator Eileen East, about 100 visitors participated in the Odyssey some coming to many studios, while some came to a single location, especially if it was outside the downtown Jim Thorpe venue. As an example, East noted that the studio/B&B she and her husband, Nic East, operate drew about 20 visitors.
