Lots of goodies

on both sides of the road there. One day Al Tondora and I picked close to a half bag of A. mellea group from a dead Hemlock tree halfway down the bank on Folys Rd. Thats tough sledding on that hill. If one trips, they will not stop until they hit a tree or fall in the creek.

Ha! So that’s why…

I haven’t ever found T. equestre under the pines near that cemetery along rt. 29. I have checked that spot many times. Like you say, plenty of H. flavodiscus there, and I also find Chlorophyllum rhacodes (or olivieri?) in that spot.

including Walter Price ha ve been hunting Mikes area for years. Speaking of White Pine, Al
Tondora and I parked our vehicle in the drive by the cemetery on Rt. 29. When we got out of the car we almost stepped on T. equestre alongside of his car. Unfortunately everyone and their brothers know about this spot. I have been picking H. flavodiscus there for about forty years. Incidentally, check out the size of the pine needles in photos.

One year…

2002, 2003…? There were hundreds of these growing on less than an acre of my property where the only pine species is white pine. Since that year, I can count on my fingers how many of these I have found on my property. Mike and I found a few at his spot this year… which has been invaded by a horde of local gunski-lovers!

posted these four years ago, but as I was checking my posts I noticed that they were missing. There are at least six locations in this area were they can be found, including Mike Hudaks property.

That’s a pretty cool find, Phil.
