    This will sound crazy...

    Ok you all are going to laugh at me but I need your help. My buddy and I set up a stand today on ragbrai and sold way way way less water than we thought, much of which was due to the cooler temps. However, now we have like 800 loose, uncased water bottles. I have no idea what to do with them. This set us both back a little bit, so a way to sell them or somehow get money for them would be great. Thanks, and go ahead and laugh.

    You tried to sell bottled water? Was this in town? Because if it was.... there is little hope for you.

    Chances are if you're trying to make such a small sum of money on a single day of the year you aren't itemizing.

    Yeah...it was in town. I was told by seasoned ragbrai people that it would work and be a good idea.

    This is what I was thinking. Or maybe find a local high school and see if they would be interested in buying the bottles at at a discounted price.

    I would find whoever told you it was a good idea and throw water bottles at them for like 45 minutes.
