    Pigfrogg, you really do not know how jealous I am. I hope some time soon I will be able to re-create something similar or exactly like that. Fantastic job on the set up. Very well done.

    First of all, I would like to say that is awsome. And Secound, I want to keep with the tradition of pointing out the part of the picture, that has nothing to do with pyrotehnics. I love differential, Sitting there.

    I saw a video of one of our members doing a similar show on trailers in Tennessee. I believe he had some kind of gravel or fire retardent spread out on the boards or bottom of the trailer. Are you putting anything like that down?

    In looking at that picture it looks like they have the gravel and a few dry leaves..

    Well

    lights camera, super cell rainstorm--scramble fireman with tarps, using trucks to block wind, tracking at 15 mph due west, sun came out, dusk with rainbow framing trailer, scramble to finish wiring cues--- change cue assignments on program, darkness falls, lets go with what we got guys.....

    make announcments, pause, pray, take a deep breath. Button pushed.. music starts. first cue NOTHING happens no american trucker, then angle mine, left right boom piggyback excal... canvas unfolds, awesome. second song beautiful chaos... third song lights and smoke at war... fouth song Classic elegance... golden rain. Less is more, right effects at right time... peacock oh peacock... big package, ---king of the brocades left and right...

    Patriotic simplicity, god bless america quiet colors, Big breaks, sexy rider, chopper, one bad mother......Bilateral trucking home to Only the strong survive x 2 triple shot to double crackle. Whitney Houston, star spangled banner Power house, Big dog, twice is nice, XXXL, Can you Handle it , PUre sEduction, x 3 Scuba diver, all hell breaks loose, Bombs bursting in air, let loose with 3 3" SOB shells rigged to go at once.... false finale home of the brave. Can Can 15 200g , 60 excals, 6 500g cakes take me home,,,,,,


    It was wonderful guys, We got dumped on, were late finishing set up, and it still was sooooooo incredible.. We had 26 misfires due to wiring in the dark ect... and I was the only one who noticed the things missing except a part where whitney houston says the rockets red glare (total silence and darkness) there was plenty of fill and choreography stuff left...

    Thanks for all the great advice, from ematches, to piggybacking, duct taping, foil wrapping, taping fuse to shells for comet tails, leaders, effect pairing, board making. Couldnt have done it without all you here on pyro Universe.... Thanx Colin, Thanx freaks... I will posts the video for your pleasure and critiqueing as soon as the guy who filmed it pass es it along to me...... Have a great and safe 4th everyone....
