Can you get stuff in PA that you can't in NH? What makes the extra distance worthwhile?
NH is a lot closer to me in eastern MA.

> The MA State Police have spotters at the tent sales in NH. They can radio your license number to cruisers waiting just across the state line and they will pull you over and confiscate your fireworks.

> Dealers in NH charge between three and five times more than what you will pay for pyrotechnics in PA. Google the Pocono Fireworks Outlet and check out their online catalog. The big warehouse store is the one in Tannersville. Also, if you sign up for their Emails, you will receive printable discount coupons. There are also discount coupons you can download from their website.

> I can tell you the best route there if you're interested.

I live in the South. If it doesn't burn, explode, shoot, drive fast, or make a lot of noise, it's ain't worth doing!

RE: Backyard Fireworks
I recently finished updating a checklist, based upon the Pocono Fireworks online catalog. There are fewer medium-size/priced multitubes this year and more of the big 500G Heavyweights. These are a bit beyond my needs and budget, but they're interesting to look at and handle in the store. The Tannersville facility is literally a big fireworks supermarket. Big Grin

I made a nebelwerfer out of .5 inch PVC pipes and duct tape. I could launch seven rockets at the same time.

> Cool! Thumbsup

> For my semi-professional pyrotechnic displays which I used to put on for the neighbourhood, I made rocket batteries by drilling evenly spaced holes in 2x4's nailed to 3/4" pine boards. The batteries were constructed to launch the rockets at an 80° angle. The spent rockets would land in a designated spot (away from spectators) where they could be gathered up later.

I dropped my spents on my neighbor's house. He was in the habit of sending his dog over to shit in my yard.

I hope you wear that Gandalf outfit when you set off your fireworks.
