USA 2014 – WARNING: Shoots Flaming Balls

Fireworks shop sign, Nevada ©Uchujin-AdrianStorey

As we were driving from Las Vegas towards Death Valley we kept seeing signs for fireworks shops along the highway, finally we stopped to have a look, the names of some of the fireworks totally made it worth it! Ah, the subtleties of the American culture ;)

    Unfortunately not. There were signs everywhere warning you not to set off the fireworks anywhere other than “designated areas” the closest of which was 2 hours away. Didn’t really want to get caught with a “Devastator” out in the desert by a Nevada policeman ;)

    You must have been tempted to at least bring a few back?
    Classic stuff. I had no idea you could buy these at a store! And love the names. Only in the States (note: – American’s seem to like to correct me on the America part. They tell me “It’s the States”.)

    I desperately wanted to drive into the desert and set some off! but was too scared of getting arrested.
    Bringing them back thru customs seemed liked an unbelievably bad idea :)
    “The States” it is then………
