Where do they go?



You know how people release balloons? I've never found one, with or without a message on it. 

Have you ever found one?

Not me. But I would love to hear of someone that has! I remember as a kid putting notes in them and letting them off...obviously no one ever found them, because I never got a response!

I've heard tales of them floating 300 to 400 hundred miles from where they were released. I've never been lucky enough to find one myself.

No, no I haven't. The earth hates me.

rychelle said...

No I have never found one but I've sent a couple off that have messages on them with notes saying to write back if found. Never got a note back either.

i just thought they got sucked into some alter-dimension like time travel, no??? :)

Never found one, but I just figured they floated up and popped and fell in the ocean and killed a dolphin or something.

I have to agree with ramsam up there... I stopped participating in these balloon release thingies when I imagined some poor fish swallowing a piece of my balloon or some duck getting all tangled in its string.

not that I'm a PETA freak or anything, I was just really hacked off that I never got a note back from halfway across the world saying that my balloon changed their lives.

We did a balloon release in elementary school and out my of entire class, only two kids had their balloons found and the note returned. One went from Colorado to Michigan.

No, I never get cool stuff like that. No balloons, no messages in a bottle.

Jessica, that made my day. I was starting to wonder if it really ever works!

I have been looking for a message for some time now. I'm crazy like that.

Does a used condom count?
No?
Really?
Sheesh. You are so SPECIFIC.

The boys had me write a note and send it to Heaven when I was little. I don't remember what I wrote but I am sure it came true!

Never found one, but have let some off. Good question???

I thought they just popped after they got up too high?....That doesn't mean I didn't let a few go.

Heck is for people that don't believe in gosh
