Thank you so much Skidog, as you can probably imagine I'm pretty nervous about all this stuff, having never done it before. Any reassurance is hugely appreciated!

Here are some more photos that I've just taken this morning of the overnight spore prints (only a couple of them really gave a visible spore print) and also a pic of how the shrooms are looking after drying out overnight.

The spore prints are pretty subtle but would you say that this is the correct colour for Liberty Cap spores?

Would I be likely to feel any effects if I ate just one of these?

Thanks so much for any advice that you (or anyone else on here) can offer me.

I'm down the spey 20-30miles or so from you. Pretty much what Claudius said, just got to keep looking and looking. This year I've mostly been checking my old spots, cricket pitch, cemeteries, golf course. The hills round here are either pine woods or heather...

Still, checked out a few new spots just for the craic and happened to look over a fence into an old horse field, was about to turn around when I saw something kinda golden. Sure enough, got about 120 from a few square metres in 30mins.

Got a push bike? Had a look near cromdale?

Hi 👋🏻. New forum member here and just saying hello from Kent. Are you South or North Kent Sid Shroom? I’m South and I’m off out this weekend to see if I can find anything. Wondering if it is cold enough yet but will see. Will report back.

Hey,

Prints seem to be the right colour - Purple/brown -but I’ve never really printed before and it’s hard to properly examine the spore print on photo. Those are libs tho so you are good. If I was wrong I’m sure I’d have been corrected by someone.

You won’t feel anything off one. Really to feel anything noticeable 10-15 would be a good place to start. 20-30 Normal/medium sized fruits is recommended for a proper dose. You might feel something mild off 5-10 but you might feel nothing at that level. People have reported varying effects off varying doses tho.

Get out there and collect some more is my advice. Post on the main forum for a confirmation ID. Happy hunting 🍄

They look good!

Eating those eight would be like having a shot or two of vodka. Not much effect, mybe a bit more relaxed and chilled, just feeling good and happy.

Enjoy :mushroom2:

Hi Amitch20

Thanks for the reply.

I'm in North Kent, just. I'm in the London Borough Of Bexley, which is about 1 or 2 miles outside of what you might call 'London proper'.

If you're near to a well-known National Trust deer park in Kent, then you might wanna try there. I've never been myself, but I was told about it on here by somebody last year. I believe you'll find what you are seeking there :smile:

It looks like a really beautiful place to visit anyway, regardless of any foraging that you might do there.

Awesome, thanks again Skidog!

I've had 3 confirmations now from different sources, so I finally feel confident and more relaxed about the whole thing. Sadly the wife is far from keen, but that's another story...

Thanks for the guidance on the dosage. I may well be wrong (very likely) but I thought that 1 liberty cap would be considered a microdose and would give me a feeling of calmness and a slight increase in my perception / connection to the world etc.

Also I'm erring on the side of extreme caution because I'm still on antidepressants at the moment (although gradually reducing the dose), so I don't know if my meds might interfere or alter the shroom's effects.

In the early 90s I did my fair share of acid, so I maybe have SOME idea of what to expect, but I'm not really looking for that kind of intensity (I'm 45 years old now and I'm interested in trying shrooms more for mental healing and spiritual connection rather than for getting mashed up and tripping balls at a club). :smile:

I wish that I'd done them in my teens, but the opportunity just didn't present itself to me back then. I remember searching for libs once when I was 19, but I had no joy. It was much harder back then without access to the internet for guidance and advice.

Thank you Metal Slug.

Really appreciate the confirmation. Wow, everyone on here is so friendly and helpful - it's truly amazing!

A shot or two of vodka, eh? I didn't realise that. I thought that eating all 8 would be quite intense for a first timer. Might do them next weekend then. They're still drying right now. Is it correct to dry them for about 3 days and then pop them in an airtight glass jar with one of those silica gel sachets to get rid of the last remaining moisture?

Are any of these libs ? I'm really starting to doubt my ID skills, I was certain they were when I picked them now I'm not so sure.

Hey Longjohnslong

I'm a newbie and only found my first ever shrooms yesterday, so I won't comment about the I.D. as I am really not qualified!

However, I'm truly fascinated by what you mention there about anxiety. So just to clarify, are you saying that you've had fairly persistent anxiety but that it cleared up after eating 10 shrooms and that it hasn't returned (or got worse) even after the effects of the shrooms have worn off? And that you actually feel even better the day after tripping? Was this your first ever shroom trip?

I've had issues with depression and anxiety since I injured my back 25 years ago and I've been on and off antidepressants for the last 20 years. Really interested to hear your thoughts, many thanks.

Willy bigs - I don’t see any libs in your finds. Looks like another species

Longjohnslong - they look good but please wait for a second opinion before consuming

I’m like 99% sure about these but would just like to get a second opinion as they were growing amongst lots of other mushrooms (I know the one at the bottom with the thick stem looks funny but I’m pretty sure he’s the right guy, he has bluing on the stipe and a gelatinous pellicle). Any thoughts? Found in Hampshire

I'm aware they are libs. Currently spore printing. Found a couple fakes with bright gills but looked very similar.
And Mr Sid shroom I would consider myself a newb too.and yes. The feeling simply washed it all away. And maybe the next day
(today) I was in amusement of what happened and  also in great form due to the find? I havedelved into mycology too its very therapeutic.. I dabbled on this decision for the past 3 years and told myself I was getting these libs to see if the effects were as I was told. But I can't say after just one dose. This is just my personal experience. After taking 10 I felt strange to say the least.. but pleasant none the less.. so much that anxiety went away.. However I do want to have a big dose (supervised of course) to achieve full effect.

found these earlier today in the north of england, atop of a grassy hill, lots of cow dung around & continous light rain all day, found some identified liberty caps in the same fields less than a week ago, was initially unsure of these due to strange stems, although the caps seemed perfect, upon second viewing under better lighting, somewhat more confident, jet black & dark purple spore colour, prominent nipple present, jelly type membrane upon the caps; hope the picture quality is better, been trying to get better shots as quality is everything when it comes to identification - http://imgur.com/gallery/BRcURl4
