Though not necessarily just a sign, Jackass Flats in Phoenix is worth the inclusion on the site. Check out this roadside treasure that's still a roadside stopover in the middle of nowhere.

Traveling the I-10 heading east out of Tucson, you will notice a series of roadside billboard signs advertising The Thing. Hmm, what is it? What exactly is this "mystery of the desert?"

Well, it's a trading post for starters. Word is that The Thing has been in Arizona since the 1960's. It may be worth the 50 cents or buck or whatever it was to find out. 03-05
