I just ran through this whole thread and am, for the first time in my life, nearly speechless! I'm going to go wash my eyes out with hand sanitizer now...

As to the side of the road stuff, i saw a big pile of crap along side a guys driveway and in the pile was one of those giant plastic M&M green candy display pieces that looked like an M&M candy cow girl complete with arms and legs in cowgirl boots. I think hell that would make a sweet giant mail box for in front of my house! So I stop and look at it and it is chock full of stuff. There's an old boy sitting on the porch so I yell to him and he just waves to take it all.
I load it up and take it home. I share the story with the misses and she thinks it will get stolen the first night I put it out. That makes sense, so I look it up on eBay. They are selling for like $300 and the people are paying up to $75 to ship them too. I list it and it's gone in an hour! I dump the crap stuffed inside out unscrew the arms and legs then jam them inside, build a box out of cardboard and put it in then get rid of all the packing material i've got laying around and take it to the shipper and off it goes. 3 days later I get glowing feedback from the new owner. I lost a little on the shipping and insurance but net $275 for about an hours work!

A couple days later the misses asks me whats all that crap you dumped in the box out in the garage? I say I don't know but am going to find out.
Among other things there are 1960's baseball card$ Boy $cout $tuff a Ca$e knife and variou$ other thing$. One man$ junk is another man$ Trea$ure!
I made about $400 total on that haul! And she wonders why I'm always pulling over on the highway to pick up $tuff I see laying along the road...
It was like this one but in a cowgirl outfit!

Sometimes there valuable road treasure out there for sure.
 
Based on what I see over here in Pa. I would never buy a bed liner for a pick up as I see one a month along I 90. Also ratchet straps are common along with bungee cords, coats, hats sleeping bags, tarps, gas cans, a plethora of various hand tools I've picked up, like larger more expensive wrenches and vice grips. Plenty of good insulation and oh the fresh "grilled" venison (Don't forget to remove the Ford Symbol before cooking...) Around here it's called "Speed Beef!"
