    Last year while scouting or hunting I found 8 mylar balloons. This year I am up to 2 so far.
    Let's clean up what we can.
    I challenge you to find more.

    Good challenge Ratz. I pick up these things when I come across it. I also discourage everyone I know never to buy those crap. My girl always points them out to me when we are out hiking since she knows I go out of my way to fetch them if I have energy left in me. Challenge accepted.

    And thank you.

    I'm so glad you brought this up. I've found many. I can't believe people just release balloons like it's no big deal. This practice is destructive to animals and ecosystems in general. I will take your challenge and pack out any trash I see as usual. Hoping more people do the same. Take any can/bottle/bs you see and deposit it in it's correct place. Recycle bin or trash.
    One Earth, one world. respect it.

    I see them all the time. I grab them. They are super common off shore fishing as well. We will be 40 miles off shore and run into them.
