I wrote the Balloon Lore website. It was up for a number of years. I just discovered this Wiki. I wonder if the content of that website could be re-created here. Since I am very new to this format I would need help. It could also be expanded and updated perhaps. And some of the photos could be improved. I was also one of the first members of the Balloon Buddies group when it was moved by its true founder through print media into the brand new email group format. Perhaps the Balloon Lore website still contains some interest because of its age.
I also wrote a description of Balloon Inflation with Lighter than Air Gases on another webpage that became quite popular which I should be able to find and add to the Wiki.
