    I’m all up for that trip... Pick a date,figure how far south we need to go to find morels. We could search for morels by day banks by night and just keep heading north.. Of course we would never keep the money but hide it in different tree stumps or knot holes we found along the way. Sounds like a plan....ps. Just kidding about not keeping the money but you never know who is listening in.

    Well, the temperatures have been right but we've had no rain since the beginning of January. I went out this weekend with high hopes but only found a couple "leaverites". (as in 'leave 'er right there') I'm continuing with a positive attitude though! At least the fishing has been good here!

    True, we can never truly know how it's going to be. Last year seemed to be setting up perfectly, and I found some, but nothing like what I hoped for. Had to hike long and hard for them, but did uncover some new spots, so that was good. Hoping for good things this year. Good luck all.

    Does anyone know what happened to Scott Daytonish? It was all of his insults and accusations that egged me on to become a much better mushroom forager.

    Unfortunately he got sick and passed away. Always liked seeing what he was getting into. This site has changed tremendously. I really miss seeing some of the posters of years ago. Was always paying attention to them. Always liked seeing Pedro’s post back in the day too.

    I went to Scott"s viewing. When he first got started hunting we got together quite often. He is missed. There were several of his friends at the viewing and I finally had the chance to meet the people behind the handles. They shared a lot of stories.

    I met up with Scott twice and went shrooming. I remember he used to run through the woods. He was a kook and fun to be around. I hope he didn't die from any kind of mushrooms.

    Went out this weekend to scout an area that used to be private but now is public. It looked like a very good place and I believe it will become one of my favorite places. Although I didn't expect to find anything I did find a scarlet cup.

    Better get it tagged by DNR if you're going to display it. They're serious about that stuff.

    The location where I found that scarlet cup looked like a good place for blacks.

    What would you suggest as a "good place for blacks". Never found one.

    Hey Ohio foragers! Looking forward to the 2020 season in the mushroom woods. Still a few weeks to go, but it's a good time to hit the woods and scope out potential spots before the itty bitty baby morels pop.

    We'll see what the coming weeks of weather hold for us, but the warm (lack of) winter makes me suspect an early start to our season in SW Ohio. I have found big yellows and grays as early as April 1 down here, while finding fresh blacks at the same time in NKY. It really is a strange little zone in the Cincinnati area. BUT, who knows??? If we get a late cold snap comes, all bets are off!

    I'm excited to take a couple of first timers out to show them how to do it the right way. Can't wait to see everyone's finds!
