So Mac tells me that he goes and picks mushrooms and fugus and the likes...well today I took a stroll through a place called Hookstone woods. Now I saw some very interesting things stuck to the side of some silver berch trees...first I thought they were fungus because they looked like tree fungus...but when I touched one...it was hard...like...rock solid, and not soft...and when I looked under it...I saw no gill type flaps that you would usually expect to find...it was solid also...and when tapped it sounded hollow.

now further down the tree there were obviously some more older...and they almost looked like that had become part of the tree...like made out of the same wood, or been incorperated into the tree itself...very strange...anywhooo...I took some photos because I thought he would like to see. :laugh:

I know this sounds foolish...but I'm not convinced they are fungus :ninja:

search out dead elm trees and you'll find mushrooms. Eat to many, and you'll need to search out the bathroom.

:mellow: but its sooo far away...I have to walk through the town, out to the stray, across the stray, past both highschools...and even then there is no guarentee I could find the fungus again...I mean...I was wandering around trying to find the ponds when I came across those...they are slightly off the beaten path...not sure I could actually find the right place again :unsure-1:

besides...I'm not sure you're allowed to like pull stuff off the trees, for all I know they have CCTV monitoring those woods...I wouldnt be suprised with them next to a secondary school. I might get into trouble for vandalism...or theaft of fungus from council property :unsure:

What would you suggest I do if I get caught...if I eat the Fungus and say "proove it" well...thats a "Theaft by consumption" Charge right there :blink:
