Local Driftwood

I'm about halfway between Orlando and Ocala, any tips on a good place to buy driftwood? I'm not real particular on what type, but I'd like to be able to pick up a couple of matching pieces.

I've collected some really nice pieces at the Rodman Reservoir in the NE corner of the Ocala National Forest. You would have to make a day trip out of it, but it's free. Just find the Kirkpatrick Dam side of the reservoir, tons of dead wood washes up on that end.

I'll have to keep an eye out when I go camping next. I think we will have to make a family day trip up there. I am going to contact the fella from craigslist. I also picked up a lead on another seller.
