Anybody going on it this year? It's suppose to start Thursday but always seems to really start on Tuesday. I went Monday and found a small amount of items but really not that much. I started last year on Tues. and bought quite a lot of stuff on Tuesday and Weds. and didn't go back after that. Missed most of the crazies like that.

Here in Iowa there is a White Pole Road yard sale that runs from the Capitol of Des Moines, half way across the state to near Council Bluffs following Hwy 6.  Yearly event runs for 3 - 5 days, depends on how long one want to set up.  It was last month one weekend.  So don't know if yours is that long or not  but this one is not short my any means.

I think it has grown quite a bit. It originally ended in Covington KY. But now people have stretched it all the way up into MI. I live about 100 yards off of 127. I drove it south as far as Frankfort KY one time. Seems anything that was any good was way over priced. And had to look through a lot of junk to find anything. Its fun if you have nothing better to do I guess. I doubt I will fool with it this
year.
