What is the Scavenger's Journey?

The 3rd Annual Scavenger’s Journey is an approximately 90 mile long shopping experience consisting of yard sales, organized flea markets, farmer’s markets, specialty shops and more. It is being modeled after similar existing events like Nebraska’s Junk Jaunt and the Kansas Highway 36 Treasure Hunt and other similar events across the country. It is our hope that this event will grow to include more communities each year and become a fun activity that brings people to South Dakota. Our small towns have a lot to offer and we feel this could be a nice boost for them. This third Journey will include, from East to West, the following communities and their surrounding areas: Plankinton, White Lake, Kimball, Pukwana, Chamberlain, Reliance, and Presho, South Dakota.

  1. When the forms are ready simply obtain a registration form from a coordinator or print it from the Scavenger's Journey website.
