Free mushroom forays...come hike with me!
    #865599 - 09/05/02 03:23 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Here at the SporeLab on Mt. Elphinstone on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada, promoting our enviromental efforts by taking people for free guided tours has been a way of life for almost 10 years. And with the Fall mushroom season fast approaching, now is the time to make your plans!

On the first Sunday of each month, year round, locals and tourists alike gather outside the Community Hall in Robert's Creek, BC. and await for thier guides, local naturalist Rick O'Neil and myself, Captain Max Mushroom, to take them into the protected forests of Mt. Elphie.

We have taken thousands of interested parties, many of them tourists from around the world, for an easy 2 or 3 hour walk to various spots on the mountain. Depending on the time of year, one may see morels, pine, chanterelles and dozens of other edible, poisonous and *magical* species in thier natural habitat.

Several shroomerites have also attended, flying in from as far away as Philadelphia and Toronto, just to walk the mossy trails of Mt. Elphie with Cptn Max. In fact there is a shroomerite flying in from Winnipeg right now!

Some of these shroomerites have slept on my couch or camped on my property and stayed for several days, taking in a personal guided tour of a different part of the mountain each day.

All for free!

On our last public hike, we visited the campsite of Penny Lalo. She has been camped in a threatened area of the forest for the past two years. Please visit her website@: www.aboriginalrights.org

Novembers hike will coincide with the annual mushroom show held by our sister association, the Elphinstone Mycological Society at the Hall on Sun. Nov. 3. This is always the best hike of the year as everything is in full flush and mycologist Paul Kroeger usually pops up as well.

And for those of you who were contemplating spending $18,000US for a 1 Day foray of the Oregon Coast, offered by another 'vendor', pm or email me at CaptainMaxMushroom@SporeLab.com and I will piggeyback you around Mt. Elphie during peak season for only $5000CAN!

From Vancouver, travel north to Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. Take the 40 min ferry to Langdale. Short drive from there.

This is awsome.. the local mycology society here goes on forays often and they have been finding lots of king boletes and chantrelles lately.. if anyone is in the MT area, PM me and I'll pass along the info.

It was posted here because it was posted about another vendor here, as charging $18,000US for a same 1 day foray.

So this is like a 'product' except...I give it away for free. In fact, I've been taking people on these hikes scince before the shroomery even existed!

You would be flying to the Vancouver International Airport.

I will say, the guy from Philly was a little dissapointed because he came too early.
If you are coming that far just to see mushrooms, I would wait another month.

Q: How can you tell that a Shroomerite crashed on your couch a week ago?

A: He's still there.

Anytime around there is good but understand, patches of magic mushrooms are not on the tour. Needless to say, they wouldn't be patches for long!

The Robert's Creek Hall is on the highway at Robert's Creek Road. Public hikes are on the first Sunday of each month at 12:45.

See ya there!
