Hi, my Dad thought I should say the rewards are based on successfully recovering the payload. If something should happen, such as the payload is lost because the GPS tracker quits working, or it lands in the water then there will be no pictures or rewards. We will have a reward posted on the outside of the box so if it is lost, that anyone who finds the payload can call us.
When we are ready to launch we will give the web address to the site where our balloon is being tracked live by GPS. The tracker will give a report on its location every 10 minutes, so everyone can see it live as it is flying. The GPS will quit working once it reaches 60,000 feet because that is the law. It will restart sending a report once it comes back down below 60,000 feet.
Thank you for all your pledges! Tobey
