    @Glenn,
    This is a little late for this years trip but for future reference stop at the Clare rest area, it is in-between the North and Southbound lanes of the interstate.
    They have a pamphlet that has a map of the different types of forests they have up there so you can pick what you want to hunt under.

    I was in the same area but did not do nearly as well as you two.
    I have used Lilacs as a time indicator for yellows. We arrived Friday and they had buds, when we left Monday they were starting to flower. Mushroom Mary and I are thinking about next weekend. Any input would be appreciated. Thank You MMH/Alex

    We are in the UP between Paradise and Newberry and we’re just a little too early . We’ve only found @ a dozen blacks and a bunch of big false morels. The Blacks have just started here. We have a few more days here and then a one day stop in the lower peninsula.

    This weekend coming up should be peak for the whites/greys/yellows esculente variety. Your right about the lilacs. Everything is running late this year but the cool weather forecast will continue to keep the whites refrigerated and more should pop above the leaves. Found many tiny whites that I left in the woods. All together I picked about 90 whites in Cheboygan county and 20 in mackinac county this past weekend.

    @elmgirl,shroomhound
    We will be staying at "Pine cone inn and suites" small but very nice cabin like rooms with coffee pot, micro., small fridge. 40 to 60 a night. Across the road is Otsego lake state park, or if you stay at the same campground as you did last weekend we will head that way to hunt anyway. Let me know what your plans are.
    do you still have my cell and Mushroom Mary's text number? Shroom on my friends. Alex

    I live in Newberry and over the past week and a half I have found just over 50 greys in my yard, but none in the woods yet. Going out today and will be looking in open cleared areas where the sun has warmed the ground.
