Default The balloon shack (my secret looning spot)
I've decided to give away the location to the abandoned hide where I've been having my balloon sessions recently. I've left a little stash and a logbook inside for others to enjoy. I've got directions and a GPS route to the location. I may post it publicly soon, but for now you can pm me for the link. Its in Surrey, England. The idea is that anyone can enjoy it and leave balloons for others. It's in a remote area away from houses or any main paths, so don't be afraid to pop balloons in there.

What an amazing idea, I really loved it. Sadly Im pretty far from England, but let me say It is a perfect way to share our passion for balloons and to meet others with similar tastes

If this place becomes popular, I may have to do some repairs. There's a chair in there and a basic roof, but I want to add windows you can shut. I may need to replace some of the wooden supports too.

MetroBalloon is an unknown quantity at this point

If it's in a place easily reachable through public means, then anyone can get there, including random people.

So, it may not be that great of an idea.

It's in the middle of nowhere with no proper path leading to it. People could find it, but random visitors will be few and far between. I'd struggle to find it again without a GPS. I don't mind if a non looner found it. I wonder if they'd blow any balloons they find inside.

Yeah, there's a hunting post nearby. It's abandoned though. There's only the traces of an old path there now. The woods surrounding it is public woodland, so you wouldn't be allowed to hunt there anymore.
