    Now you're talking!  This is one of the smartest suggestions I've
    seen all week!  It's a very intelligent way to use Mother Nature,
    physics and geometry to vastly improve your chances of finding
    debris quickly.  Mother Nature (wind) combines with physics (buoyancy)
    to reduce large two-dimensional areas (lakes) into one-dimensional
    shorelines.  (I use an analogous system to greatly accelerate the
    rate at which I find meteorites.)  Time to pull out the atlas...
    In California: check the shorelines of Mono Lake.  In Nevada --
    Walker Lake and Lake Mead.  Lake Powell in Utah/Arizona is also a
    good candidate as is Conchas Lake in east central New Mexico.
