Update: JonM just posted up his wrapup! – Link


We had 12 people on the ground looking for our high altitude balloon and found a friend to take us up in a Cessna 182 to scan over 100 square miles of farmland.

Here’s a video of the launch! – mov Link

Despite herculean efforts, our balloon is still missing. If you have a plane in the Northwest and are interested in going on the Ultimate Easter Egg Hunt, here’s a map for you to reference. If you can find it, I will personally send you a print from the photos taken by it and presents!


With some help from folks off location in the UK and Seattle, Xander has set up a map with continued search locations. The red target is the centered average of all the predictions. This would be a good place to start an aerial search for a pink foam payload and bright orange parachute.


The box above shows the area we searched from an airplane. Easter may be over, but the Hunt is on!
