I have one small piece of Lake Michigan driftwood in a tank and I love it! It sure took a long time to sink, though. I boiled it for several days, then let it soak in a pail for about 2 months (!) and it still floated for at least a month in my tank before it finally... finally... sank!! It was worth it though, washed smooth and safe and clean from the Lake. I also love the beautiful smooth stones that we pick up on the beaches there.
Like you I want warmer weather to come so I can go get more ~ but I figure at the rate we're going it will be July before all the snow is gone!!!
