    Boy...what a waste of delicious morels. You'd think there would be some way the forest service could send teams of well-trained workers into the less dangerous areas to pick them. Morel sales would fill the forest service's coffers a lot quicker than a bake sale!

      Agreed! I'd eat morels before most bake sale goodies!

      You're not breathing the same air as the rest of us.

        Grin, most likely not. I've weaned myself off the appreciation of most sugar.

          I've never been a sugar fan either. :-)

      You're definitely not breathing the same air as the rest of us.
