To the Editor:

Our committee has wrapped up another successful Licking County National Road Yard Sale and we thank the buyers and sellers who participated in the eighth annual sale.

We also offer our thanks to the ThisWeek Licking County News for helping spread the word about this all-American event on an All-American Byway. The National Road opened the Ohio territory to settlers. Licking County is proud to have 32 miles of the road; the most of any county in Ohio.

It was bumper-to-bumper traffic on the super weekend of sales, May 30 and June 1. Several sellers told the committee that they met visitors from Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Restaurants along the road said they were busy.

Plans are being made for next year's sale, which will be Friday and Saturday, May 30 and 31.

We encourage everyone this summer to get off the beaten path and journey on U.S. Route 40. You will be surprised by what you discover.
