Hey everyone, as Tattered Tiques gets ready today for yet another road trip, I thought I'd share pictures of our last one. We started this trip in Northwestern Ohio, and headed down south to Kentucky, following Route 127 the entire way. The trip is called The World's Longest Yard Sale. It was filled with tons of yard sales, mini flea markets, large flea markets, horse farms, old towns, and a plethora of antiques.
Every, old town, old building, old door, is brimming with history. My favorite towns on this trip were in Kentucky. Towns like, Lexington, Danville, Harrodsburg to name a few. They are filled with historical buildings, georgeos horse farms, tobacco fields and more.
This picture was taken in the town we ran out of gas in. It was brutal! We didn't realize we were running out till we were just out of town. It was a 25 minute walk each way back to town and then back to the car in 92 degree heat. It sucked! I vow never to run out of gas again. I can't believe it actually happened. Three women in a car and they run out of gas. How does that happen? It threw off our whole day after that!
While in Lexington, we stayed at the historic Crowne Plaza Hotel. It was really nice. The rooms were decorated with beautiful horse pictures, super comfy bedding, and the outside was the epitomy of southern style.
Well, there you have it. All in all, the 4 day trip didn't turn up all that much for us to bring home. We did have a lot of fun though, as always, and I learned a valuble lesson. Always, always check your gas. Especially when you will be traveling on back country roads! You never know when the next gas station will come along.
Hundreds of miles from home...cost of hotels, $375, cost of trips to Dairy Queen each day, $12, cost of gas for three days trip, hundreds of dollars, cost of goods, hundreds more dollars, cost of the lesson you learn after taking a walk down the highway with your 60 year old mom and pregnant sister after running out of gas, priceless!
Ok, now it's 5:11 on Thursday, and I'm supposed to be leaving for our next adventure in 45 minutes, Oronoco MN. Still have to shower and pack (and my house is a mess), will I ever learn? No!
Hope to see you next week. We will hopefully have lots of great stuff to share. We will be open August 23rd, 24th and 25th. Back to shool week, I know, but if you snooze you loose!
