NANFA-- Drift Wood
Sat, 3 Feb 2001 23:51:14 EST

Does anyone know how to make a nice piece of wood sink so that I can use it
as a piece of driftwood. My guess is that I might be able to speed up the
natural process by boiling the wood in water. or try boiling in a pressure
cooker. or through the use of boiling in acid or in lye which is a base.

But these are total guesses on my part. does anyone have a clue as to what
to do ???

P.S. I finally found flowing water that was NOT frozen. I crossed the snow
covered tundra to arrive at my spot and found it had a million foot prints as
all the kids cross the water there. anyway. I hid 2 minnow traps with dry
dog food as bait under the small bridge overnight. the result in the late
morning was ZERO. well, I want to personally catch some nice native fish.
but nothing so far.

And thanks to Martin. He told me that Wal-Mart has the minnow traps for $7.
he is correct. and they are the nice smooth coated ones. they also had some
metal ones. the price was not marked on them.

so I took my new metal one at $11 from another store and the $7 one I like
better. and neither one got a minnow. I wonder if they are swimming around.
it is cold out there.

dont forget the drift wood question.
