If you are talking about going up to Door County Saturday, my wife and I are heading up tomorrow. Ill post how we did. Im not sure what we will find up there, but its a hike in the woods, a picnic, and Door County Brewery (and maybe One Barrel as well) on the way home with a few growlers. It wont be bad no matter what happens.
When I said it wont be bad no matter what...I was wrong. Rain...lots of rain. My wife and I looked for about three hours in heavy downpour and found a whopping one morel. We would have been drier had we jumped, fully clothed, into a lake. We may try again in a week, this time paying more attention to the forecast!

A Plateful of Pleasantries and a Basket Full of Beauties. Found these today in some nasty terrain: a lot of fallen timber, wet mossy stumps, and under ripe old elm after yesterday's rain. There was a mixture of Silvers (greys) and Golds (blondes). Yeah, it's work crawling over the trash but look at those colors! Got very wet and bloody pounding through buckthorn and russian olive to get to the targets. Great time!! Love it!!

Bring back a few 4-packs of Hacienda beer, and I will happily buy them from you if you are passing through southeastern Wisconsin.
You have good taste in beer my friend! We didnt end up stopping by the brewery due to being so wet and not presentable. The good news is I think we are doing it all over again this Thursday, so if you are serious about that, Id pick some up and figure out the best way to meet up. If so, send me a private message and we can work out the details.
