mushroom walks

Yeah, I have taken people out locally for mushroom walks and plant walks. I also know some lichens. Not a seaweed specialist, though. I live in Albion. Prefer cash, sliding scale, trades acceptable if needed. Have dial-up, so rarely check my e-mail. 937-5201.

Dear old Ryane

Ryane was a really warm, modest man. He has taken me and my friends on many private mushroom foraging expeditions over the years. I think he liked our energy, mellowness, and curiosity. My condolences to everyone else who knew him. I guess I was kind of spoiled, solely replying on Ryane. Does anyone know of any other people who formally or informally take people mushrooming, whether it is for cash, cases of beer, or bottles of wine? I actually had a seaweed harvesting trip on the calendar with him in June. Does anyone know do something similar?

There will be a memorial for Ryane on the Mendocino Coast. The date and place are not yet certain. I will post it here when date and location are set in case anyone wishes to come.
Have fun

in the old growth forests of Heaven, Ryane.
You will always be remembered by the people who learned from you.
The Mendocino Coast will miss you, too. You were a wise wizard and caretaker of the woods.
I will always imagine you looking over my shoulder when I pick candy caps from beneath the ferns on Little Lake Road.
