Oh yeah, remembered these bad boys that I saw while paddling in False Creek a while back. Not sure if they're the Trojan type or not but someone was definitely having a party:

I'll need my rules co chair to look at this one ( Dru) but for now I have to say these don't qualify because they are urban finds.

I would have to agree with you Mick, too urban.

And for Martin's find, that should be a 3-pointer since ribbon is attached, no?

Too urban? That's what I kind of thought too -- and I'm pretty sure they're condoms and not balloons anyway. Wasn't looking for points -- just thought it was an unusual find is all.

Cool on the 29 cluster points -- thanks!

2 for me

2 for Matt

And , find of finds, another 10 for me
Whoever is about to turn 50 on CT, this one's for you !

All found on mysterious bushwhack up the west side of Lynn Creek, TR to follow....
I did a re-tread of this area and found another one! My brother delete the on-trail photo-evidence, but here it is safe at home.



Is that a ribbon in this photo? I cant tell. (taken at the Mosquito Creek heritage trees)

How on earth do so many balloons end up in the forest anyways?
Strange!

I hope nobody is getting easy points by bringing them from home and taking photos of them on the trail...

BC is mostly forests, therefor...... most of them end up in the forest.

Good theory,

Why the hell do people carry balloons into the forest to begin with I wonder... Maybe they are all from Vancouver and landed there...

I say up the points for anyone who can spot someone carrying one into the woods
