Road Trip! Dr. Mac's Pacific East Aquaculture 9/20

We've been chatting about it a bit in the other LFS thread. Let's see if there's real interest.

Might be too short notice, so the date is negotiable, but what about this Saturday 9/20 for anyone interested?

Locals can meet up, car pool, or pick people up along the way even. I don't mind driving, and can seat 4 more people in my truck

I'm thinking leave the Sterling area around 10ish or so - 2.5 hours to get there... grab some lunch and check out the store, then head back mid-afternoon.

I'm going after 100ish pounds of LR, so I'll call before then to ensure they have it in stock.

So, who's in? How's the date?

I'll go by myself if I have to...

Yeah, call first. I wasn't impressed after that long drive the one time I went. Wasn't looking for rock, but there wasn't much good looking stuff last summer.

Nice variety of of stuff though so it shouldn't be bad, but if you want rock, definitely check with them first and hope for a fresh shipment.

Hmmm, thanks for the info. Everything I've read about their rock is that it's great. I did talk to them a while back and they even said to make sure to call before i come to make sure they have enough in stock and good quality. I'll be rather upset if I make the drive then they don't have any good stuff

Yeah, I just picked up a seasonal weekend job so I'm pretty much booked for all my Saturdays. Sorry. Would love to go though.
