#69: 1 fuse. $700 of fireworks.

Pin It
One of my best friends is a great guy named Bryan Crown (fellow member of the "Brain Trust"). Even though Bryan and I have many things in common, we also have some differences--particularly in the fact that Bryan is a big adventurer, whereas I am a big wuss. For example, Bryan likes to go camping, skiing, rock climbing, and caving, whereas I, on the other hand, once played a video game that had a cave in it. I became an accountant, whereas Bryan became a recreational therapist working with troubled youth. I like to watch Star Wars in the comfort of my living room, whereas Bryan could actually BE Han Solo.

(As a side note, I just realized that used the word "whereas" four times in one post. That's gotta be a record.)

The difference between Bryan and myself was again made apparent to me last night. Whereas (five times) I like to watch city-sponsored fireworks from a safe distance, Bryan likes to put on a firework show to actually rival the city's. Last night was Bryan's 3rd Annual "July-a-palooza" firework show. And believe me, each year keeps getting better and better. This year, Bryan, along with some of his other friends and family, bought approximately $700 of fireworks, tied them all together with one giant fuse, and let 'em loose. Enjoy the video of the finale below!

Like a kid in a candy store.

One fuse to rule them all!
 The 3 minute finale!
Success!
Always have a bucket, just in case things get crazy.

  1. I thought you see going to say that he was your hero because he decided not to light them because of fires this year. Oops.

  2. Kudos to Bryan. He may have missed his calling as a pyrotechnician! I'm particularly jealous as our city banned fireworks entirely.

    1. It was amazing. Granted, I feared for my life, but it was still amazing!
