OK, I have been getting ready to tag along with a friend this spring for my first season. Unfortunately, he is not going to be able to get out this spring. I want to still give it a shot anyway and see if I can surprise him with some fresh morels. Is anyone willing to meet up and show me some of the basics? I live in the Columbus area and was planning on hitting the southeastern part of the state. Reading books and FAQ's has been a good start, but time in the field would be very helpful. I am open to going out before they start coming up so someone could show me generally what to look for without giving up any areas they are trying to protect.
