I'm Bringing Eggs and Milkshakes

So this fourth of July I went camping with some friends, which I haven't done for awhile. Luckily didn't get too sun burnt and no lost limbs from camp fires or fireworks. I took some videos while I was there and thought I'd post them up.

This first video is one of the many fireworks we had picked up in Indiana on our way. I recommend Lightning Fireworks in Portage, IN if you can find it. Looks shabby on the outside but pyro heaven on the inside.

The next are some higher-end sparklers. They're called Morning Glories and rather than one single type of flare, it changes after five seconds.

My friend Travis kind of planned the whole thing and he was in a band called Second Frost. I say "was" because he's now moving to Michigan and the band is staying in Chicago. The whole band also came out to camp and played at a local bar called The Red Rooster. You're seeing video of their last performance...treasure it.

And finally, the placemats at The Red Rooster were this odd mix of fun and local advertising. It was a hand drawn map of Muskegon, MI with local business (I'm guessing one's that paid more got bigger placement...I'm looking at you Ford dealership) but you also had to find 20 hidden roosters. I tried to capture it with this video.
