I will most likely walk to the one. Walking 4-6 miles a day in season is no problem,particularly on flat lands. I can see what you mean now and it all has possibilities. Never usually go to the area due to population pressure. If my brother gets his surgery cancelled due to the Kung Flu we may take the boat, but he is really laid up so I hope he gets it done. I appreciate the tips, I will do my best to make sure no morel goes to waste. Hope your new location pays off for you. About 10 years ago I did real well on a several small streams in that area on soft maples, maybe if the birch don't produce the maples will. Morels always keep us guessing.
