People from all over the country traveled the route of the “World’s Longest Yard Sale” this weekend searching for bargains. Locally some yard sale vendors blamed the bad economy for fewer yard sale travelers in what was the 22nd annual event. The yard sale runs from Ohio all the way to Gadsden, Alabama. The original intent of the sale was to prove the back roads have something to offer, and that the interstate system was not the only mode for travel. County officials put together a list of attractions along the route in Kentucky and Tennessee. The Lookout Mountain Parkway Association asked to be included in the sale route a few years after the sale began. The Lookout Mountain Parkway leaves Chattanooga as Highway 58 and becomes several different highway numbers before reaching Gadsden. It is no longer US 127, but is the same great sale. This routing crosses the Northwest corner of Georgia, going into Cloudland. This added another 100 miles to the already existing 350 miles, thus making it 450 miles — "The World’s Longest Yard Sale".
