Driving a motor home back from California and looking to pick up some fireworks on the way. Any suggestions on best place in the Dakotas to buy some?

Border spots always have the best stuff and most competition typically, but I don't know about the Dakotas.

Some of the biggest vendors are located in/around Sioux Falls. You'll fill a truck bed in sioux falls for the same $ it takes to fill a prius at any of the little border outposts along the SD/MN line. Some of those little stands are owned by Sioux Falls companies and they mark up the merch pretty high to take advantage of the out of staters jumping across the line. If your on the northern route across SD, mainly hwy 12, there are a few decently priced stands in Aberdeen, and Big Stone City isn't terrible either, but if your on I-90, Sioux Falls area is definitely the place to stop.

A whole bunch just south of Sioux Falls on I-29 at the Tea exit 73 both east and west of the interstate, cant say how they compare for prices but they have quite a bit product.

Otherwise if your coming through on I-90 there is a few just south of the I-29 interchange at exit 83. Some other spots over on I-90 at exit 402 as well.

I believe the one just south of I-90 and west of I-29 on 38 (west 60th street) is a hot shots fireworks store...red/white/blue building. Swung in there last year as I work near there for the first time and prices/selection seemed to be fair. One of their "deals" they were getting people to come in the door with last year was a 6 round mortor pack for $2.50....nice size packs....ended up buying 6 of them and the wife/kids loved them.

As Rundrave said, quite a few larger stands just south of Sioux Falls in Tea.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
