Dead Links #13

In these troubled times, there are few vestiges of tangible geekdom remaining on native soil.  The video store is dead.  Even Netflix is a sinking ship; most of its subscribers use the service for TV shows instead of movies anyway.  If you're like me and you live in the middle of nowhere, Goodwill stores are a lost cause.  They merely subsist as a once-rich basin that dried up years ago.  For the nostalgic horror freak, the yard sale is the last bastion of VHS falconry.  Great finds may be scattered, but they're out there.  You have to be willing to roll up your sleeves and plunge elbow-deep into the birth canal of America.

Which brings me to our dead link...Yard Sale Treasure Map is a simple tool that notifies you of upcoming yard/garage sales in your area.  Each listing includes brief information, so you can easily locate potential cool shit.  The days of aimless, thankless driving are over.  You still need to get up early, though.  Every silver lining has its cloud.
