I have read through this thread multiple times and finally got up the nerve to call the a country store in Brown County and ask for permission to look for geodes along their creek. My kids are just starting to get the rock hound fever. We live in Florida but travel in the summers. I spend a week or more in the INdianapolis area. The woman who answered the phone was pleasant and said just to check in when we got there. She explained her property line and how to access the creek and set us free. We met another family looking for gold with their rather fancy set up compared to my buckets. We found a 5 gallon bucket full of geodes ranging from shooter marble to a giant fossilized brachiopod geode. I was a little sad to see holes where others had dug and not filled them back. We live at the beach and it's rude and dangerous on many levels to dig giant holes on the beach and not fill them back in when you leave. I could also see places where people dug out the creek banks. All of our collected geodes were found along the creek edge or buried just a bit but visible.
