    Hmmm...I am headed up to Maine the 29th, but would love to check out the deals.

    Do you have to be a member?

    Mstrek that's my neck of the woods but I'm driving down to see Family in NC Friday night after work. That REI is the perfect place to go for garage sales, it's never overly crowded. I've missed every one there this year except one and I had an amazing score! Good luck!

    Yep, but you don't need to be a member to check out what they have at the sale, and you can become one at the time of your purchase.

What some do is find something they really want and take a chance, come back Sunday and basically steal it (read: for next to nothing). Some will even try to tuck it away somewhere in the sale area on Saturday hoping no one will find it.

    Just recently we scored a heck of a deal on a nice family car camping tent (REI Kingdom 4). Yes I said "tent" in the hammock forums....shoot me. I even made a video of the deal we scored: http://youtu.be/B1-UHTWAEQg


    Goofy I know but that's how I roll
    Excellent deal. Well done sir.

    Wish the REI was closer. The nearest one is 65 miles away. Through Atlanta traffic (read: not fun). I'll have to see if/when they are having their garage sale. If it is this weekend, I may talk the wife into making a trip out there under the pretense that she needs some new shoes. She almost exclusively wears Teva Sandals.

    *edit*

    It's a go. I have permission from the wife, and she said we should plan to get there early. WooHoo. . . here's hoping I find some great buys at a great price.

    All REI stores are having their big "Garage Sale" on the 29th. I was shopping there yesterday and the signs are up, and everyone in that long line was planning to go early!

    Maybe I'll see you there. I'll be the one with bags under his eyes cause I got up at 5:30 AM to leave by 6:30 AM to arrive by 8:00 AM so I could be in the door close to quick at 9:00 AM.
