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.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
