Where did you find me?
« on: May 25, 2009, 06:08:38 AM »
Is what the little note said, tied to a ballon. I found it in the woods and it made it here all the way from Somerset Ohio. I've done writin' a little note and sent it back. Do any of you guys & gals find any of these? I found one years ago and it had come from somewhere in Michagan. I thought it was kinda neat ;) Just curious, If this would have landed in a park or conservation area, would it be considered litterin'  ???

We have found a couple over the years.  I can't recall now where they were from as its been such a long time ago.

I have found a lot of them. I just consider it to be littering. People throwing stuff on my farm from hundreds of miles away.

Iíve found a few around here. Kinda like a note in a bottle.
Leaving for work just before daylight one morning, I found one of my  cows tangled up in the lines on a weather balloon that had come down in the pasture.

i had one found when I was a kid.  we did a balloon release at school in the first grade, i think.

i don't remember where it got too, so I guess the experiment didn't really do much   :D :D :D

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.

....... I've done writin' a little note and sent it back. ............

Did you launch your balloon when the wind was blowin the other way? Otherwise, it might not make it back.   ::) ::)

 ;D

Littering, but then it's fun to learn how far they can go. Found a weather balloon remains when cutting firewood this year. Came down with the ash tree.
