    We're leaving Boone, NC on July 4, and hoping to find somewhere in SW Virginia, preferably along 81 somewhere, to spend the night of the 4th, see some fireworks, and chill before heading home. I read last year about small towns along I-81 that have real festivals, but haven't found any good information yet.

    Anyone know of the area and what we might check out? National Parks are out - the rules won't have changed yet.

    There usually set off fireworks in Vinton, Roanoke, Franklin(West Lake area near Hardy Ford Bridge), and I am sure there are some more.

    P.S. Just a warning the LEO's are working real hard lately and usually are step it up for the 4th so I imaging it is going to be real heavy so watch that foot. Word from an anonymous officer he was told basically "we need funds for rising fuel cost" interpet that as you will.

    I believe, Abno works or worked in a Hotel in the area.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Well, Roanoke always puts on concerts and fireworks down by the river. After last year there shouldn't be any problems with OC. I won't be in town to test that though, sorry.
