GMC Hidden Treasure Adventure #GMCHTA – Introduction

GMC Hidden Treasure Adventure – I’m beyond excited to announce that I will be going on a HUGE adventure with GMC this week. I’m one of 6 very lucky bloggers that was invited by GMC to take on the World’s Longest Yard Sale in order to find treasures to decorate a home for Habitat for Humanity. You can view the video from last year’s adventure here.

GMC Hidden Treasure Adventure

2013 GMC Acadia Denali

We will be taking on this adventure with the 2013 GMC Acadia Denali. This awesome vehicle is equipped with great features including the industry-first front center air bag! I will share all the details about the vehicle as soon as I try it out.

World’s Longest Yard Sale

The World’s Longest Yard Sale is situated on the 127. The 127 Yard Sale began in 1987, 26 years go! It’s over 690 miles (1110.45 km) and goes through 5 states! It begins a few miles north of Addison, Michigan and ends in Gadsen, Alabama.

Habitat for Humanity

The purpose of this road trip is to find treasures to decorate a home for Habitat for Humanity. Each blogger will have one room to decorate in the house and have a budget of 250$ to do so. I’ll find out on Wednesday which room I will be decorating.

GMC Hidden Treasure Adventure

I will be leaving on Wednesday and flying to Detroit for GMC Hidden Treasure Adventure. I’ll be meeting the GMC team along with the other bloggers that were selected for the adventure. Lucky for me, I already know them: Jocie from One Project Closer’s The Better Half, Carissa from GoodNCrazy, Liz from Liz Marie Blog, Courtney from French Country Cottage and Kirsten from Simply Grove.

We will be starting the adventure right away and hitting the yard sale on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Sunday is the big day where we will get to see the home for the first time and we have 5 hours to decorate it! Talk about pressure! And we head back home the same day.

Please follow along #GMCHTA

I’m really EXCITED about this adventure of a life time and I really hope you’ll follow along with me. I will be sharing lots via my social media networks and I’ll most probably be needing your help on deciding what I should pick up to decorate the room.  I will try and post during the trip, if I don’t.. I promise to share the full recap when I return.

You can follow me along during the adventure via Twitter,  Facebook and Google+.
