So I need to get some driftwood ASAP, I have plants coming in tomorrow that I need to tie to some. BUT problem is, last week I had won an auction on aquabid for a piece and the seller never got back to me. I cant just sit around for another week and wait hoping he'll reply to my many messages.
Anyways, since that fell through, and I havent noticed any driftwood in my local stores, or atleast pieces that are a decent price. So I plan to go to the creek that runs close to my house to find a piece tomorrow.
So, how would I go about preparing it? I know you are supposed to boil, but I live with my parents at the moment and I know that they wont let me boil wood on their stove, and also, it'll probably be too big to boil, any other options that will get it ready fairly fast?
