I’m selling parking spots in my yard for Iowa football tailgating. It’s really close to Kinnick and easy to get out of the city after games.

Here's the important bit: I’m going to give all the money I make doing this to Touchdowns for Kids. I’m doing this because I'm bad at selling my yard piecemeal — standing outside all day with a sign sucks. Also for the kidz. 

I'm going to start by offering my entire yard in one piece. For the next week, I'll offer my entire yard to the highest bidder, provided they meet the minimum of $1200. Here's what you would get in return: 

  1. 10 parking spots with ample room to tailgate before and after the game (8 a.m. - 8 p.m.)
  2. Great location in University Heights area: .5 miles walk to Kinnick.
  3. Use of a sweet deck and front porch (see picture of deck and backyard)
  4. Fenced-in backyard for tailgating.
  5. Use of bathroom (see note)


If you know a group who hasn’t locked up their tailgating spot, please encourage them to bid. Serious bidders may inquire for the actual address. No reselling of parking. If my minimum of $1200 (less than $20 per car per game) is not met by August 22, I will post again seeking to sell individual spaces for the season (again, with all profits going to T4K). Rec this post and get the word out -- this could make a lot of money for a very good cause. 

Bids (or requests for more info) should be directed to I will make the bid amounts (but not the bidder) public in this thread. 

Note on use of bathroom: the bathroom will be available before and after games when I am in town (currently only planning on being gone for one). Bathroom-use will be revoked in response to any damage or theft of my property. Someone I have approved must accompany all guests to and from the bathroom. 

Note: I'm aware that with the information I've provided, it's probably possible to figure out my address and identity. I'd appreciate it if you'd refrain from doing so. If you must, please don't post my personal information. Thanks. 

Note to mods: jebushhchrist seemed to think this was a good idea (though he certainly didn't give his approval for this post) in Hamsterdam. If there's any problem with this, let me know. Since it raises money for a good cause (and I will be giving the money as a FoTP) I thought you'd be okay with this. Let me know if I've stepped on toes.
