Craig's Patio stones
Craig from Missouri sent me these great pictures of a patio installed

After much consternation I just could not force myself to use polymeric sand. I
did not like the colors (sand or grey) and the cost, not to mention the concern

the quarry where I got the rock for the rest of the project. I settled on 3/16
minus with fines. The stuff cost $14 a ton. The fines settle leaving just
enough that packs and settles nicely. Long answer but I thought others might
like this option. Apparently they use this product for warning tracks in some
