Who can forget about mushroom hunting?

I don't eat fungus, but Mesick isn't that far away. I always loved the idea that they have a motel called the Mushroom Cap Motel.

my husband used to go mushroom hunting when he lived in MI. My mother in law gave the kids a book on mushroom hunting. We'll have to bring her with us when we move to show us how it's done!

Ah, yeah ... my dad used to go mushroom hunting when I was a kid. Grossed me out back then, when he'd come back with a bowl full of morels and cook 'em up. Now I love my shrooms. Too bad I missed out back in the day.
