Large rock purchase - where from?

I live in Southern West Virginia. Id like to take a truck somewhere and buy about 500 lbs of nice dry reef rock to build reefscapes. 250 miles away or less.
Any ideas or would you just order from someone?
Who?

If you are willing to make the drive. Hit up Marco in Florida

Just a thought but why not just order Marco and exopy, or mortar pieces together? Way more custom and you can make pieces fit your space restraints.

I would prefer this way that way you can create your own piece of reef the way you like

I had every intention of doing my own, Marco Rocks or not.

I am looking for about the same, but I am in Las Vegas and am willing to go up to 300 miles. Here I have seen live rock at most places double digits or more.

just pitching in as a guy who purposely purchased large pukani rocks, like 5 years ago when they where still availably. By large i mean they where like 20-35 pounds rocks, once i did my aquascape, i think i only saved 3 rocks in its original form, the rest where broken into smaller rocks to finish my scape. 3 years later i actually wish i had got smaller rocks and made scape with more curves and holes and arches for fish to hide and also being able to plant more corals on it.
