Observed in Hungry Horse on the Fourth of July

  • This year the observers were segregated to one side of the street and the participants were on the other.
  • At least one family set up their lawn chairs a full three quarters of a mile up the highway, well out of range.
  • I saw two teenagers duck, cover and crawl into the fetal position when they realized they were too close to their explosives.
  • At least one group found it more entertaining to launch their fireworks horizontally.
  • In the half hour I was there, I saw two explosives go off in the middle of the highway between the passing cars.
  • The alert helicopter was spotted in the Martin City area.
  • One dude with a beer and a mullet was overheard instructing his wife and age seven-ish son: "Are you crazy? That there is a mortar shell, you need to fire it farther back. Put it near those people."

It's a special breed of people Up the Line, that's for sure.
Sounds about usual...I couldn't hear any of the conversation next to me. We were close enough to FEEL the concussion from the launchers. Northern WI isn't much different than Northern MT.
Heh heh, I was in Hungry Horse, too. Although my insane friends like to aim bottle rockets at boaters! I missed the ALERT Helicopter, though.
