I'm visiting Olympia this weekend. Must hunt!
    #585520 - 03/21/02 07:09 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Hi all,

I'll be in Olympia, Wa. this weekend. While I will be busy the whole weekend, I'll have all of Friday to explore Olympia.

Does anyone know of good spots to find funny mushrooms? I know most of the Pacific Northwest's best come out in autumn (cyans, azures, etc.) but what will be available -- and more importantly WHERE when I arrive? Or is it still too cold?

Please answer ASAP b/c my flight is damn early tomorrow so I won't be able to check the board for replies.

Shit, judging by the post here about snow in Seattle I might be outta luck.

Thanks for your help!

Insomnia,

I talked to Myst....she said you were coming out to Washington.
Not sure if we can hook up..... I told her that Joshua is coming up to meet Pleezr, MJ, and myself this weekend.
Joshua is meeting me this afternoon at Pleezr's house.
We really won't have time to hunt today.....sorry.
Plus after all the snow flury's this week.....god knows if there is any mushrooms.
I hope you hook up with Myst....she is a great gal. :smile:
Maybe Josh and I can hook up with you this afternoon or this evening.....if you are hanging out with Myst today.
MJ is taking Josh and I hunting tomorrow....but who knows if there is anything to find.
While you are in Olympia.....look around you just might find some mushrooms.
I hope you do!!!!
Myst....if you read this post....call me on my cell phone later this afternoon.
Maybe we all can hook up....that would be really cool.
*crosses fingers that there is no more snow*

Hil Roadkill!
Hey, will you post a reply with some details about your hunt with MJ, Pleezr, Joshua, Myst etc. ?
I'd really like to know how it went. This way I'd know if it's a good time to go out and hunt for some mushrooms that I know are growing. See, I'm still recovering from lung surgery and don't want to risk catching cold or something by going out in the cold every day just to check and see if they're out.
Do you understand? It would mean alot to me to hear some hunting reports in the PNW. :smile:
BTW, I'm on Harstine Island, a few miles north of Shelton on Hwy. 3 towards Bremerton. I've been hoping to get together with MJ myself for some time, but my health added to the recent winter weather has kinda scared me outta getting out there! Hehe!
So am I correct in saying that Roadkill, Joshua, Pleezr and Myst are all in this wonderfull area of the PNW? If not, can you set me straight on the whereabouts that each of you live?
It just sounds to cool to hear that so many Shroomerites are living close to me!  I don't know how long y'all have been on this site, but this is my first realization of you guys being in the area!
Thanks in advance and I wish you the best of luck on your hunt guys!
Stay cool!-Levi7.

Yeah Roadkill Joshua and I will be taking a short excursion today to look for two mushrooms. The wonderful P. stuntzii (blue-ringers) and the imfamous and elusive paneous subbalteatus. Not sure ifwe will find any.

Haven't been to my blue-ringer patch in a few weeks. Found some a while back but not many.

As for Olympia, I lived on Holstine Island for a month with Gartz and a friend Karl Sackstedder who sells the Weilr Woods boxes inthe public market.

I hope we have a great find today. Always think positive.
And Insomnia, I usually find them by myself when I al amlone and no one else is with me and then they appear to me as if in a dream, calling my name from across the far reaches of the Galaxy. I respond by plucking rthe little fellow from a lwn mower death and thus save their souls.

Until the Moon comes over the Mountian.

hi....Levi

Well.....There wasn't any mushrooms up in Seattle....around the U district.
Olympia was dry too.....we looked around for quite awhile.....but no avail.
MJ thought that within this week or so.....that we will be finding some shrooms.
We did find some non active mushrooms in West Seattle.....lolz
So we did find something...so you can't say we got skunked.... hahahahaaa

MJ took Joshua and I shrooming......and we had a fantastic time.
MJ is a kindred spirit.....such a warm and wonderful person!!!!
If you ever have the chance to meet Mushroom John....don't pass it up.
He is wise beyond his years.....this man is a walking data base on mushrooms.
His stories and memories make for a wonderful experience.
John.....I thank you for your friendship.....your help and guidance.
We will always be friends and brothers.
I thank you for one of the best days in my life...you have my utmost respect.

Sometimes you just get a wonderful feeling when you meet someone.
Well... I was blessed this weekend with meeting alot of truely wonderful people from the Shroomery.

A group of us met at a cafe in Tacoma.....Friday night.
Insomnia, Myst and her girlfriend Mel, Joshua, Pleezr, and myself.
We had a wonderful time talking about our love for the beloved Mushroom.
Great People....if you ever get the chance to meet any of these people.... you will not be dissapointed.

Insomnia......you didn't miss much on the hunt.....sorry the snow probably stalled our season.
I hope you enjoyed Stamets Clinic. :wink:

I live in Seattle.....Levi
The others will have to respond.....as I will not tell where they live...  out of respect to my friends.... I know you understand.:)

Levi,
After the season does start..... I would be willing to come down and hook up with you.....never know....maybe MJ would too.
I have seen you post about your health....and i hope you are feeling better.
If you are up to going out.....just ask.

jihead,
I might take you up on that.....maybe we can get together sometime....and go for a walk.:)

I wish everyone good luck hunting.....hopefully the mushrooms will show up
shortly.

Wow i had no idea how my shroomerites lived in sound area, thats good stuff. Good to know there are plunty o' people to help find and spread the psilos around. I ask Levi a month ago about getting together some sort of a gathering this fall. Dont know if anyone has interest in this and even if interest was shown if anything would come to fruit from the plan. It could be pretty goodtimes tho. Everyone could share stories and photos of there psilo pastures. The most awesome thing that could come of this is if everyone started growing spawn of some of the rare species, cyanofibrillosa for example. The majority of people talking in this thread right now i have never talked to before but everyone seems like good people and i like everyone on this board i am sure would love to be educated by MJ. I think a pretty cool event could be put on, keep it real low key, do it earlier into the fall so we could all gather at a campground or something out in the sticks.
