  1. Very cool Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Don't miss the electric bills for ol classic displays. As I'm not to far removed from the classic c9 days. I'll spend $500 to 1k a year and still come out ahead. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No I actually did not take any this year. Sorry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 2 car but I'm sure the piping would be strong enough to extend it over 3. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I made my driveway arches with 1/2" EMT. I have straight pipe up the side and I made a jig in the yard to bent the tops all at equal angles. I use 3/4" 45 sweeps and 1/2" thin wall pvc to act as a coupling in the middle. I've hung 10,000 lights from my arches as I use to do a 9 channel leaping tunnel. As you could imagine that's a lot of zip ties and up and down with the ladder. That's why I've abandoned the tunnel but keep my arches. I think I have a video on YouTube under the crazy Christmas crew page. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I do a little of everything in my display. TSBO, Dub, with the classic Christmas songs. Even got my wife to give me the [emoji1303] for Dominick the donkey. Just for fun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Where about in south Florida? I'm on the treasure coast Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I don't worry about how many lights I have, I worry about does it pop? I made a 16' wreath as my center piece this year and it took just shy of 14,000 lights to make it pop. I have an 8' cross on the roof that is wrapped with 1,200 lights. Each arch over the driveway has 600 lights on each x's 6 arches. My question would be how do you count RGB's? Do you count them as Red, Green, Blue, Purple, Orange, Yellow, and so on and so on? At last rough count I was at just over 40,000 last year but this year I was down around 30,000. I decorated my neighbors house with the extras. Trying to get him to buy a controller and hook it up wifi so I can program his house too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'm running 6 20 amp dedicated outlets. After everything is connected I send my kids out with electric tape and cover all connections and ends. My show is not on gfi's I'm just really careful on how the power is run. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. This is why when I'm ready to switch to LED in 2 years I'm buying from you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. 2 years ago very early in December I bought a cart full of lights. I asked the manager if he could do anything and he gave me a good deal. Sometimes it doesn't hurt to ask. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
