Are you ready for the Route 11 Yard Crawl?

4yardcrawl5_08-14-10.jpgTravel along U.S. Route 11 will be a nightmare this Saturday, and if you don't intend to shop I would advise you NOT to venture out on that highway for the all-day - no start time, no end time - Route 11 Yard Crawl.

The crawl is in its seventh year and is an annual event anticipated by many local residents and visitors. It's also dreaded by motorists not interested in the hundreds upon hundreds of yard sales along the highway from Stephens City in Frederick County all the way to New Market in Shenandoah County.

Oh, but it's so much fun!  I spent several exhausting hours on the crawl last year - and I didn't even get out of Frederick County!  It's just impossible to look at everything.

If you are selling along the route on Saturday, e-mail me at lash@nvdaily.com about what you're selling and where, and I'll add it to our Route 11 Yard Crawl Sales List here so that nvdaily.com and sweetvalleydeals.com readers will know where to stop and shop.

I found this great video of the Yard Crawl by Ed Bickel of Bickel Productions of Maurertown, Va. This is a preview of a documentary for WVPT,  Virginia Public Television that aired on June 9.


Just wanting to know if there is a date set for 2012? We live in PA and would like to participate again.

Hi Ronald! The Yard Crawl is amazing! I looked on the crawl website but it does not look like they've updated if for this year. Keep this page bookmarked for updates: http://route11crawl.wordpress.com/
