    May I suggest a new Website that searches for information? A friend recommended it to me about 10 years ago. Its simple, just type in http://www.google.com and proceed to type in the information you are looking for in this case "dry ice Milford PA" and the search engine comes up with informational web sites on the topic you have entered. After taking two seconds of my own time I personally found this http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-...G=Google+Search as the first match for the search criteria I had entered, which then gave me this site Dry Ice Directory of Pennsylvania ( http://pennsylvania.uscity.net/Dry_Ice/ )

    No problem, I'm bored to death and the absence of meaningful posts on this site lately is killing me.

    Also, practically all Baskin Robins chains sell dry ice. They just don't advertise it.

    You'll probably need ~20 lbs of dry ice, break it up into smaller pieces, spread it around, let it sit for about 10 minutes and the take a hammer to it. You'll probably end up with around 20 lbs of sound deadener.

    You should beable to get it at local grocery stores. They use it for shipping and will sometimes just give it to you or sell it really cheap. They use to sell it at wal-mart here.
