We will need the following items for filling and launch prep.  Can anyone
think of anything else?  If you can provide any of these items, please let
us know.


"fish" scale - to measure nozzle lift as we fill and payload weight  capable
of reading up to 20 lbs should be sufficient 

Fill nozzle - probably made from PVC ?

Fill hose - goes from regulator to nozzle


Did we find a suitable high flow regulator?  How long will it take to empty
a full tank through a regulator?  Remember someone must hold the balloon the
entire time while it fills.


Someone needs to find appropriate FAA contacts for our potential launch
sites and have that data ready.
