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.

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
