It's not too early to think about your ARRL Field Day antenna. Why not try something new, such as this helium balloon supported 40 meter vertical antenna?
"HamRadioConcepts" shows how a group of radio amateurs built an HF long wire balloon antenna for the 2016 ARRL Field Day near Vero Beach, Florida. Using only 25 watts into a MFJ-993B antenna "tuner", this group made a lot of interesting contacts. Al long as you have helium, a sturdy weather balloon, a good tuner, and a suitable counterpoise or ground radial system, you should do very well.
