Well, I found THE source for red flint gravel. It seems that there is a
company called 'red flint' and they sell red flint in sizes ranging from
fine sand to rocks.

The gravel I'm interested in costs $6.50/100 lbs, which is an incredible
deal. The only problem is that Red Flint is in Eau Claire Wisconsin. Not
all that far from Ray Wolff, but about 16 hours from Lexington.

So why all the fuss? I'm just particular about the gravel I use. I have
had good success growing plants in red flint.

Anyway, I really don't have a source for red flint gravel here in lexington.
None of my local fish stores have it and they can't seem to order it.

Is there anyone who is aware of a source for red flint within about a 4 hour
drive from Lexington? This would include Indianapolis, Chuck. Perhaps I
could link a gravel buying trip with a collecting trip some weekend.
