New source of knappable rock

Post by grendel on Sun Aug 19, 2012 4:32 am

Here's a great new source, and it's free. Well maybe the shippings a bit expensive.

A couple of those rocks look really knappable.

Do you think they would mind if I took the motorhome there and filled it up with rock?

I wonder what sort of mpg I'd get in that atmosphere........

I've been misled all these years by Hollywood into believing Martians had ray guns.
