Weather/Marker Balloons

Post by etaylor1 » Mon Feb 07, 2005 12:40 pm

We are planning to buy a weather balloon, as they make great reference points for our kids who are beginning to venture a bit further than just the campsite (okay, so us bigger kids can find our way back too...)

My question is this - are there any local places that have helium to fill these or do folks just buy their own helium tank and fill it when they arrive at camp?

Thanks for the idea - I also found a place called balloons direct that sells them too...their prices are really good! but they didn't offer any suggestions about gettin it filled.
