Morel morals

Wanted to share a story from the mushroom woods that happened today. I went to a favorite spot around noon, parked my truck at the road, and hiked in. As I arrived at the area I planned to start really looking a truck pulled in on the trail I was walking down. An older man got out of the truck, I asked how he was doing picking this year. He told me he picked some the other day, and admitted he can't see them very well anymore. I told him I would help him, and shortly pointed out a few. He thanked me and walked off to see what he could find. I ran in to him later and he had only found about a dozen more. I had about 200 at that point, so I filled his bag for him. He said maybe he would be able to do something nice for me someday. I told him it doesn't have to be me you do something nice for, it can be anyone. He told me he was going to share them with his friend who cannot get out in the woods any more. It felt great to help that man, one of the best times I ever had picking!!!

I still believe it's better to give than receive...I read the awful stories of people yelling at others for hunting their spot....etc...etc.... there is so much greed in the world that it's good to hear something positive......selfless acts always bring people the most happiness in the end....

Well done Jim.

The best lessons are those learned before you wish you had known better, especially when thinking edible mushrooms.
