Don't you just love it when you are kneeling down in the middle of a garden bed inspecting a mushroom in public and about five million people walk past?! Must make me look like crazy person or somethin - one guy the other day saw me and started walking the other way - actually - almost running! Usually I just sit there and smile and say hello as if nothing is out of normal....

What do you guys do? Any good stories?

cheers,

ganesh.

It's even weirder when you take out the camera & tripod and take a picture of a mushroom that others don't even see. :grin:
"What the hell is that guy taking picture of?"

Or you walk into your local patch and there is a guy standing the middle of it with his eyes closes rocking up and down dancing.

well, just recently i was hunting around in some giant piles of woodchips/dung/compost/straw that were baking out in the sun in this horse pasture,  I think someone saw me because now all of these piles are gone.


and thats a lot of dung let me assure you.

people i know always laugh at my friends and I because we go way out of our way to get what we think *might* be a mushroom, any kind of mushroom.

Ive been beeped at too, when picking on the side of the highway.

summer daze :smile:

-odh-

I believe i will go out to the seashore, let the waves wash my mind. Gunna open up my head now just to see what i can find...

People always assume I've lost something and try to help...
It's the worst when they end up trampling all over the patch while searching for your invisible car keys.

i like having my camera...cause it brings some validity to my answer when someone asks what i'm doing .

"ohhh i'm writing a paper on the environmental effects of el-nino (spelling???) on mushrooms and their habitat."

works everytime......also works for getting permission from farmers.

I have never been bothered by people who see me picking. I always tell them what I am doing since i have no fear of who I am talking to and the fact theat I believe I am doing what I like to do. Pick mushrooms and photograph them in their various stages of growth and developement.

I even get policemen who stop and asked me what I am doing. Of course I known that they know what it is that I am doing so I always wonder why do they asked that stupid question of me siince they already know the answer tot he question.

john....you have the same aproach I have to it...whats the point in BSing about it...I have had more luck getting out of trouble by giving the answer the want to hear.... I got pulled for 80 in a 55 one night...cap gave me a ticket for 25 over instead of 35 , he began to give me directions to the court to pay the fines and I told him I knew it well...he asked why, I told him I used to Repo cars and most were for title pawns in his county..he took the ticket and gave me a warning...

I've had guns in different states, untaxed liquor....'that....it's just some moon shine my grandmother gave me'....baffle them with the truth, its what they want and most are pretty cool about it because you are obviously not hurting others with your actions...
