Ok, this is a really notional "idear" I came up with. There was a thread about finding your rocket on the ground and people were saying how difficult it can be - pick a distant object and keep walking straight, etc. And sometimes you still lose'em in the tall grass/crops/brush. So I thought, "These high-power guys have all kinds of fancy tricks for getting recovery systems deployed, how about a system that would inflate a small helium balloon (NOT RED! Who'd go near it?!), so that it would stick up as a marker? Like I said, it's really just an off-the-top-of my head thing, and there's a pretty thick layer of concrete up there, but it may even be possible to bring it back on the balloon. Keeping the balloon un-holey would be a big issue, then sizing, then how to inflate to a controllable bouyancy...
