    I'm out of streamwood in cook county. Either way, I cant complain about this season. Maybe get another trip or 2 just to see what all the rain does.

    Better hurry. It is time to go deep.
    I used to work in that area. There were a ton of dead elms 28 years ago.

    Tons of new growth guys! Went back to a few of my spots and counted well over 100 button size morels. I didnt pick any but am going to go back in a couple of days to see what the growth is like.

    I never met him, but have heard great stories. I was at the last two Magnolia events, all of the Henry events and all of the Ottawa events. Sad that the Illinois State Championship Hunt is finished.

    This year we, of course, did not travel for our mushroom hunts, but we had a great year here in the St. Louis area.

    What is the furthest North that you go to hunt? I think my friend is in Northern Michigan right now!

    We used to travel to Columbia County(WI), but not any more.
    I will be sixty-four soon - that terrain is a deal breaker these days.
