Cool. My ID guides have many species, but only one (maybe two) pics of each. I have the Simon & Schuster, Dorling Kindersley and the Stamets Psilocybe guides. Will these do for a trip to a place like this?

Were the pickers working for companies or were they just other mushroom enthusiats? Is the land you harvest from government property? How did you find out about it?

Would this be similar to the "mushroom adventures" that are listed in the back of GGMM? In one of the indices there's a list of travel agencies w/ mushroom hunting oriented vacations.

Looking forward to seeing your harvest pics.

You won't really need the Psilocybe book, aside from maybe a couple of obscure species, you won't find any cubensis or azures or any of those warmer weather and dung loving species up north. What we look here for is primarily one specie: Tricholoma magnivelares, the Pine mushroom or Mastutake. This is the big ticket mushroom. There are also a few other species we pick and they are all easily viewed and identified at the various dealers. Those buyers can id most any mushroom you bring them.

I have been harvesting Pine mushrooms with hundreds of other independent pickers for 10 years around the province. The trip up north was like a pilgrimage to the Holy Land of mushrooms.
The other pickers were mostly experienced foragers, many had just returned from the Yukon where they had been harvesting morels. Some head to other areas of the province depending on weather and other factors, it's amazing what they know...' this lake is popping, this valley is due, we're leaving for a 200 mile trip first thing in the morning..'
Then they follow the 'wave' down the coast, picking there way down until it's Feb in California. Then they drive there huge mobile homes to Mexico for a couple months before heading back to the north to start the cycle over again. It's a nomadic life ;and one thats a hell of an experience!
It's mosty Crown land but now some native bands are charging if you are on their land.

I'll have the Gallery of over 80 species of mushrooms any minute, until then, here is last years trip up north, including a few pics of big Pines!

Hey Captain,
Just for academic purposes, there's no "s" at the end of magnivelare. Also, Nice pix! Those look like they smell good...like that unique smell you can't describe accurately with words.

I think your right but check this out, in the Audobon Society Pocket Guide to familiar Mushrooms, 1st printing 1990, in the index, they have it spelled with an 'S'! I think I doubled checked my spelling using this book and copied their error!
