Moto Morel Hunt

Amy, Elke, Andy and I decided to do a little mushroom hunting today. Amy rode in my Sidecar and Elke rode with my brother Andy in his KLR outfit.



It was the first time I had ridden the Scrambler hard off pavement, the way I designed this rig to be used, and the first time I had taken a passenger in it. It works a little harder in the dirt than it does on pavement, not as easy as my KLR rig was. Cornering is a little less precise with a passenger aboard. Still it is quite capable and a fun ride.



We pushed through the manzanita and found our way to the secret patch. We paused for a little wine to sharpen our eyesight before the hunt







Amy found the first cluster of mushrooms, and the second bunch too. We almost stepped on them.







you can just make out Andy foraging through the tall trees







Elke found one hiding right at her feet!





the more I looked...



...the more I found!











I tore the lens and LED out of my right turn signal when i snagged it on some manzanita



The rest of the gang found some verpa while I was looking for the lost pieces







I found some fragments, but nothing salvagable



We made it home just as it got serious about starting to rain

Very nice.....at least 2 more weeks before our season starts.

Still quite a few patches of snow in the woods.
