Ha Ha! It's true, Doug, I've never lost a rock yet to poor maintenance!
Most of my good rock hunting grounds are in North GA. The location for the
4/28 trip is below the fall line, so it's not as plentiful for unusual
rocks. However, parts of Colochee Creek have excellent potential aquarium
gravel (after boiling), as well as driftwood. GA is so abundant in natural
resources I'd bring a spare bucket anyway. There's no telling what you'll
find. C'mon up!
