Where Can I Buy THICK Udon Noodles?

I love those thick, fat, nearly pencil thick noodles in Udon soup, but I can not find it anywhere! I don't live in or near a major city with asian markets, so I'm looking for a source where I can buy them dry, and have them shipped? I know they "plump up" when cooked in water - but the ones I've been buying are still way too thin... looking for pencil thick (once cooked).

Anyone help?

    1. I thought they also came vacuum sealed, and hence not dehydrated. The dry ones are good, but I don't really classify them as udon.
