Pac northwesters its time to put on your hunting hats
    #1921025 - 09/16/03 11:41 AM (18 years, 1 month ago)

We are getting the early fall rain we lacked last year! Patches are looking really good, mycelium dancing on the surface. I say in another 2 weeks they will be up and matured in a few places. Ps. semilanceata have already begun to fruit in small numbers in the deep grass. So bearin this in mind yalls should start getting out and hunting for the majestic fruits of our fall season.

Yet again cardboard has stunned me with his outstanding finds this early in the year

I have been commercial fishing the past 2 months so have not had a chance to check my patches. I am sure this rain is doing wonders on the mushrooms around, but I predict a fruitful season, I get a month off before I go fishing for chum salmon so I am gonna be huntin like a mad man!

New patches rule -- in about a week similanceata should be near its peak

Send some rain up here to Alaska! Nothing but sun here and it's getting upsetting. Winter is coming on fast up here pretty soon it will fall as snow. Good hunting!

It's been raining so much here in Tillamook, it's looking out to be a really good season, very humid too. I'm excited after last year's disappointing season.

The only grow sites I know around my area are aminitas, three years ago there were over 40 full aminitas that were beautiful, but I have no use for these, so if anyone wants to trade grow sites or just help a fellow hunter out, I'm on the eastside :smile:

One or two days of rain down here in Douglas County, I-5 corridor and now it's been mid eighties nearly everyday since. The only saving grace is that we've been getting the morning dew making everything moist at night. May have to go hiking next weekend..........

Nice rain but it's back to being summer again 'cept for cool evenings. Found some agericus Augustus, but no chantrelles, B.Edulus or "other" types growing yet in their usual haunts. Bark dust is dry.
Glad I found this forum! Nice to see so many shroomophiles in the NW!

I will gladly trade a great amanita Muscaria patch for info on how to find Azeurensis. Heck I'll throw in a King Bolete spot! Heading to Astoria this weekend...will be looking...

Given how dry it's gotten I'd wather them at leat a bit!  Some time ago living out of Tillamook I had a nice bed of cyans that started popping early then a dry spell hit and they all aborted until Novermber. :frown:

Sounds Like fun but I aint really been hunting since I started this patch 2 years ago.. Everyone in town finds out about a patch then you get every1 and thier Gramma out there tearin' everything up.. I've fukked my own patch up quite abit by planting organic rye grain instead of real grass. It got quite contaminated but I just went out(haven't checked it for a couple days) OMG AT LEAST 200 boomers. And it aint even rained yet!?!?!? I got really stoned about a week ago and forgot about the sprinkler. I was trying to prepare them for a nice rain instead I gave them one. Oops. Now I gotta lightly water about twice a day and heavy water once a week. sounds about right. We'll see...

If that was a "Fuckin' Funny answer," then I guess our definitions of funny differ.

It was an honest question, I've never heard them called boomers in the South. I wondered if it was a term that was specific to the PNW.

Your answer was very mature and informative; thanks for the help, buddy. :nonono:  :thumbdown: :nonono:

Intyeresting becasue the spore deposits on the rings of cuboies are usually a dark chocolate brown, rarely purple if anyone really knowns the difference between chocolate-purple brown and purple or chocolate.

The rings on most cubes actually appear mor eblack than purple or brown.


And if anyone needs proof off the colors I can show you purple caps or brown to black rings, but I have nevr seen a purple ring.
I never saw a purple ring, I never hope to see one, but I can tell you anyhow, I'd rather see than be one.

I've heard them called bloomers, but not boomers. The guy who called them bloomers was from Minnesota. The most common slang for them is shrooms. I have never heard the term wavy Gravy except from a book I read once.

What is with all of the !!!

I simply stated that I have heard the term "bloomers" in the past.

A mushroom blooming is similar in idea to a flower blooming as the cap opens so does a flower...so the term bloomers makes sense to me although I do not call them that myself. It makes more sense to me to call them bloomers than boomers.

I would be happy to buy you a beer if you would quit !!! at me.

Hey Joshua,

the actual term is fruiting, not blooming. hew mushrooms fruit, like apples on a tree. The body is underground. They do not bloom.

Only in the last year or two has the word 'boomers' been used to describe who knows what kinda shroom?. OF course one can read my book on ancient and contemporary mushroom names of Mesoamerica and Other regions of the World," for nick-names and ancient names from all over the Globe. at my site at:

I guess peoples eyes see differently. IMO Psilocybe cubensis most certainly does have a dark purple colored veil. I was never told this either, its not something that was instilled in me, its something I've noticed on my own while picking thousands of them.

Here is what Paul Syamets has to say in his description of a Ps. cubensis stem "a well developed persistant membranous veil that soon becomes dusted with purplish-brown spores".

Now, if you can show me a cubensis mushrooms with a black colored veil that isn't from bad color or lighting in the photo, I would be suprised!

Anyways, about the PNW.

Cardboard, MJ, and the rest of you PNW'sters, if you were me, spending a few thousands dollars and taking a weeks vaction to fly up and experiance the PNW mushrooms season, when would you fly up there? I want to buy plane tickets next monday and I am thinking that flying up either the last week of october or the first week of november would be a good time, but I am open for suggestions. I have plently enough frequent flyer points so my ticket will essentially be free! I know you can't predict with certainty when peak season will be, but like I said, with your experiance picking in the PNW, and if you were me, when would you fly up there?


Also, what would a good central location for me to stay at? I have no idea what seattle is like, traffic wise and the like. Would it be a bad idea to stay smack dab in down town seattle? I was thinking Tacoma would be a good place to stay, it'd be easy to get to seattle and aslo easy to get to astoria from there, and I do plan to visit the oregon coast while I am in the great PNW.

Sorry for all the questions, I just want my vacation to be the best possible! I have time to plan this right, and thats what I intend to do.

Open for any tips/suggestions anyone might have...


LK,

Lizard i would say that early november would be a great time to visit the pnw. It can be said with a reasonable deal of certanty that everything should be up and fruiting vigourously. As for a place to stay i would suggest something a bit more rural that seattle or tacoma. The whole beauty of the pacific northwest is our clean air and beautiful landscape....if you stay in seattle or tacoma you will be missing a big part of that. I live 1.5 hours north of seattle in bellingham if you make it up this way there is always an empty couch and good herb/beer.

Here are my 2 cents...

1. Late October/Early November should be just about perfect. I would not wait until mid-late November becuase a freak freeze has been known to hit the area. And that would put growth to a stop.

2. I would NOT stay in Tacoma. The I-5 stretch from Seattle to Tacoma has been rated as one of the worst in the nation for traffic jams. If a Seattlite wanted to go hunting with you, it would require not only 33 miles each way, but probably 1 hour in traffic each way. Check your PM's, I'll send you a good suggestion there.

3. Bring warm clothes and some waterproof clothes. Hunting up here will likely get ye soaked. And while it's impossible to stay completely dry, if you dress right, it'll be a lot more enjoyable.

4. If you are looking for concerts or something off the beaten path to do... Check out this website... The Stranger. It's our local "what's happening around town" free magazine.

5. I don't know if you are renting a car or not, but if not, you might want to look into the BUS system here. The website is here. While Metro has a notorious reputation for late buses, it's a good way to get to someplace cheap.

WEll said stymee, the only cheap hotels are some youth hostels on capital hill and downtown is the green tortoise, not the nies places inthe world. motels start at around thirty dollars to sixty dollars a night, even in the U district.
AS i mentioned I am willing to spend a day or so hunting with you.

Pm when you are ready to come here.

MAybe Roadkill can join us if i his heart is not in bad shape.

All very good suggestions, exactly what I was looking for. I think I'll shoot for early november, probably fly out the first thurday, I hate flying on fridays, our airport here in ATL sucks.

I'm definitely down for for some cold beers when I get to town :smile:

I had planned to pack warm, and lots of changes of clothes, maybe a rain poncho or two. Gonna buy a couple 128mb memory sticks for the ole camera. Probably gonna get some traveler checks so I'm not walking around loaded :smile: I had also planned to rent a car, unlimited mileage, something with good gas mileage. So I will have my own transportation.


And thank you so much for the hotel suggestion via PM stymee, I think thats where I'll book. I may end up heading to astoria for a day and get a hotel down there for a night, but other than that I'll be at that hotel for my stay. Also thanks for the link about the local events, I'm checking it out now.


This is gonna be soooo much fun!! Just being out west for the first time will be exciting. Its my first solo travel, and that scared me a little at first, but as I plan and things get figured out I feel more confident.

I plan to check out Mt. St. helens while I am there, and also Mt. Ranier if time permits. Maybe do a little bit of salmon fishing if they are still running when I get there, I'm not really sure of the season. It also depends on what an out of state fishing license will cost me, might not be worth it. Probably check out the space needle, and just putz around town, I'm sure I'll have a full agenda by the time I get to town :smile:

I agree the more accepted term is fruiting. I only said blooming to make a comparison.

Now that I think of it, I think blooming would be more accurate than fruiting. A fruit is an ovary of a plant with fertilised seeds inside. A bloom is a flower with unfertilised sexual cells present, just as a mushroom is a form of fungi in which unfertilised cells are present.

In the end I understand that these are all subjective terms and none of them really matter except when trying to apply the terms as to form the best method of communication.

Bring lots of film with you LizardKing

I also live 1.5 miles north of seattle in Bellingham and its a really cool, laid back place a lot of stoner college kids around and tons of great picking spots, its also very scenic as cardboard mentioned

I would suggest comming near the end of october

Have lots of fun, maybe i will check the gathering forum

I am in Portland and new to the area, I know someone who wants to go hunting sometime, but both of us wouldn't be very good at spotting the difference between deadly and active (in a good way). Hopefully my hanging around here now might prepair me before the season hits. I have a few weeks I guess to brush up on everything. Anyways, nice to meet you all, anyone can drop me a PM or something if they want lol.

I wouldn't mind just hanging out sometime with people doing whatever. It doesn't HAVE TO involve substances, although they can always make the day more fun.

I agree....early November. Traditionally I have been able to find something for Halloween.

While we're on the topic of mushroom season in the PNW, has anybody been over to the rain forest on the Peninsula? I've always wanted to wander around over there this time of year to see what a 'rainforest' mushroom season might include.

weather.com suggest we are getting some rain come sunday (bellingham) looks like maybe a few days atleast....
