if they freeze -- they will be ruined.

maybe you could insulate the bag

if there dry it'll be okay, try to get them as dry as possible though since water in them will cause the cells to rupture = not good.

You can't freeze fresh shrooms; they will turn to glop when they thaw. That will render them useless. You can't store them in an insulated container either, as someone suggested, because even an insulated container will drop its contents to ambient temperature overnight unless the contents generate some heat of their own.

There are only two ways to freeze shrooms and expect them to still be viable; freeze-drying (very expensive equipment required) or cracker-dry them, then freeze them. This requires a day in front of a fan, then several days sealed in an airtight container with a desiccant (Dry-Rite).

No other technique will work.
