michigan trip!

we got back yesterday from the michigan trip and it was a very good time.we rented a place this year and i'm sure glad we did.the weather got pretty cool with some rain.maybe it's just me getting a bit older but i really enjoyed being able to shower up at the end of the day and not wearing winter socks inside my sleeping bag to stay warm!
anyway,we did pretty darn good.i ended up with 4 one gallon bags of shrooms to bring home.i wandered farther out into areas i'd never been into before and found several new patches that i marked on my gps.1 of my old spots really produced well for me.on the 1st day this spot gave up ALOT of very nice grays within a small area.2 days later the same spot gave up some big whites,yellows and more grays.after that i began heading into areas deeper into the woods so i could get a little more familiar with the area.
i bought a new fanny pack this year and it's bigger than my old one so i was able to pack a few snacks and carry more water with me.that let me stay out longer and it made the trip alot more enjoyable.
scared myself stiff once too! i was picking a few grays and had to look under some humped up leaves to find the smaller ones.i turned over one hump of leaves only to find a coiled up snake! that patch and the rest of the grays were still there and officially his at that point!
anyway,i really enjoyed my time in the woods this year.here's some pics.
