Realistically I don't think you could do all of Kentucky and Tennessee in 4 days. Some areas are filled with lots of sellers and it takes hours to go through some of these large selling areas. That much travel would mean you'd have to pick and choose which places to stop at. The farther south in Tennessee you get the traffic becomes more congested and will take you much longer to navigate through (especially on Saturday and Sunday). Our experience has been to plan on 100 miles a day and feel lucky if you made 50. We spent a whole day in Crossville, TN last year and we didn't hit 1/2 of the sales we saw because of the sheer numbers and the congested traffic.

Our personal preference is Kentucky. It's a little slower pace and not as congested as Tennessee. A lot really depends on what you're looking for. I feel you'll see more antique dealers in TN and there will be a lot more of that style inventory available. Our experience is KY has more traditional garage sales but there will be many professional vendors as well. The last 2 years we have focused on Frankfort, KY to Crossville, TN. My wife and I have decided to do the same route but we won't be heading as far south - probably just beyond Jamestown, TN. We start on Tuesday and spend 5 days shopping this route. I'm sure I left out a lot but if there is anything else you have questions about feel free to join our facebook page www.facebook.com/groups/700468520026960/?ref=bookmarks

I agree we liked Kentucky, but really love Tennessee arrange especially signal mtn area, there seemed to be more vendors last year, also it was pretty rainy last year. Plus signal mtn is a beautiful drive!
