    10 pound bottle should be plenty, especially if you aren't going to run tools. Not 100% sure how many air ups / downs you get from 1 bottle, but unless everyone on the wheelin trip is snaggin' your CO2, you oughta be fine.

    just under 20 bucks here, you can get them filled at alot of the same places you would go for your welding needs, I had a tank filled at a drive through liquor place here in mesa:haha:

    $10-20 around these parts. Welding places, gas cylinder supply places etc can fill them up np.
