Hubby’s favorite cousin is turning 30 next weekend. He’s a bit on the quirky side. He has a fascination with things that make really loud noises. Firecrackers, thunder bolts, old yellow school busses backfiring, etc. At midnight when he turns 30 we would like to fire off a cannon like people fire off guns on NYE.
I’m talking about a REAL cannon. Like the kind you see in Civil War movies or in the Super Mario Brothers. Not the kind that are just large and powerful guns.
We will be out at his cabin. It’s in the middle of the forest, so we don’t have to worry about disturbing others. And the cabin is right next to a lake, so the ball would have somewhere to go when it lands.
If we cannot get hold to a real cannon what else is extremely loud? We want the impact to be so powerful that it throws us off balance. Our second plan is to get an anvil and fire it into the air from the ground. We saw this at a carnival one time and it was awesome. But we haven’t had any luck finding anvils either, not even at Home Depot.
