Hey Dan, try a local building supply company and borrow a pick-me-up truck
from a friend. You should be able to get some really nice river wash
gravel very cheap. Here in Cleveland, I picked up some dynamite natural
river gravel for $25 for a ton. Great color! My truck is only a 1/2 ton
but I fit 3/4 of a ton in it. It killed me to loose the extra 1/4 ton!
Needless to say, I have enough gravel to last me quite a while. Even if
you go in with a garbage can, at $25, you can get 300 or 400 lbs cheap!
