Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Wonder if you can go with a solar balloon to bypass the helium requirement entirely.

Edmund Scientific sells both weather balloons for use with helium and solar baloons.

The solar baloon site sells both kits and plans for solar baloons.

Depending on size, there seems to be more than enough payload and drive lift.
