Yeah, I'm thinking of taking a trip to the island on the 15th and staying for the weekand. I have a few questions before I leave though so I'll lay them out.
-I really want to go mushroom hunting, and I'm willing to go anywhere on the island to pick them. Is there a good chance that actives will be flourishing during my stay? Can you guys recommend anywhere(not too specific obviously) that would be the best habitat on the island to go to? I was thinking somewhere around Port Renfrew, but then again that will require another long expensive bus trip.
-I dont have a car so I'm going to have to take the bus, which is a 150 dollar round trip from Kelowna. Do you guys know of any cheaper methods of transportaion?
-And lastly, would any of you be curious to meet up and go picking?
id go picking with you, but i dont know shat about active mushrooms. i think youll find htat bussing to port renfrew a very baaaad idea. there is not public that goes that far. the furthest they go is sooke. the only busses im aware of are teh shuttles that take people to the juan de fuca and west coast trails. not cheap i dont think. i can give ya tons of places that have stupidly large amounts of misc mushrooms, but i wouldnt know if any of them are active or not. sorry.
pm me if you wanna talk further, i dunno where this thread is. dunno how i even found it, but here i am.
oh and greyhound is probably the cheapest. cars would be cheaper if it wasnt for the ferry. its like 50ish each way for car+driver.
you could hitch hike, but may be slow goin.

I'm postponing the trip till the 30th or so, so I can catch a ride down with my dad, plus I figure the season will be a bit riper by then. I'd love to chat with you about various things, though, got msn?
