I've been interested in learning more about mushrooms ever since Ann posted on her great experiences hunting them

http://foodsoftheworld.activeboards.net/topic1428_post9213.html

Every now and then, Dan would also post about his experiences, with beautiful photos and enticing recipes. My interest was piqued, and i wanted to gain at least a working knowledge about these wonderful fungi....

Unfortunately, I never got around to it - partially due to work and family demands on my time, and partially because mushrooms have always seemed like a "rare" thing up there in north-central Montana.

But since then, I've noticed a few things; the first is that, when you are actually keeping your eyes open, there are more mushrooms around than you might have previously realised - most are pretty close to home, too. Another development is that my wife - who has always talked about her grandparents hunting mushrooms near where she grew up southeast of Great Falls, Montana - mentioned this again during a recent trip we took through the area - and even pointed out the very trail where her grandfather would go.

The final straw was when I finally had time to view and read Tomas's wonderful post about his recent mushroom gathering:

That was it! After a short discussion and renewed interest, my wife and I ordered this field guide today:

Thank you for the inspiration, my friends - I've been talking about taking this step for years, but your posts have moved me to actually do it!! Handshake

Based on Ann's recommendation, I also ordered, "Mushrooming Without Fear:
