Re: Looking for Rock shops along I65 for upcoming trip
A few years back I made a trip from South Florida to Thunder Bay Canada and back stopping at rock shops along the way. I actually put together a binder of information of rock shops along the way with a few hours of work you can do the same thing.
A couple of tips I started with a Lapidary Journal that was a year old and that was mistake most of the shops listed were no longer in business. What worked best was I went on line to �Yellow Pages.Com� and put in the town I was going to go trough and rock shops or lapidary. This site will give you a map to get to the rock shop so you can plan your rout. Also I believe this site let you search with in a 10 to 20 mile radios of the town you are going trough as an option, it might be worth your while to detour to pick up a good shop. One last tip call each of these shops and get their hours and days they are open this was worth the effort at three different rock shops.
Good Luck and have a great trip.
