Who's up for 100 miles of garage sales?

It may be time for a road trip.

Rummage sale fanatics will be flocking to the Great River Road on the Mississippi River this coming weekend for 100 miles of garage sales.

No, not 100 garage sales. 100 miles of them in 15 different towns on the river, in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

I've been to some pretty major townwide sales before, in places like Cottage Grove and Evansville, but this sounds like the mother lode. I think it would be fun to bring a group and have a scavenger  hunt--we could try to see how many large inflatable crayons we could find, or perhaps the crappiest piece of garbage for the highest price, or the item you can't believe somebody would try to sell.
I was at a yard sale once and I noticed that some one was trying to sell one of those little plastic doohickeys that often go in delivery pizza to separate the pizza from the box (as pictured below). They said it was a Barbie table and they wanted ten cents!

And I bet with 100 miles of sales this weekend I could find at least one of those being offered up next to a broken VCR or a trashed copy of Barry Manilow's Greatest Hits.

More info about the 100 mile garage sale here.

Garage Sales
You are a garage sale-a-holic. I was never a garage sale kind of person. My Auntie Caroline and her daughter Ann used to write down every garage sale they wanted to hit when she lived in San Fransico, they would be gone all day and hit most of them. Ijust find that a bit boring, would rather get something new at a store where I know nobody owned it before although you have to wash it cuz other people tried it on, yuck.
