    Thank you, my friend.

    Thank you, Jack. I've been interested in mycology since I was just a boy and I am often fascinated with the types of fungi that grow in other parts of the world. I'd be curious what sorts of mushrooms are more prevalent in your neck of the woods.

    It was interesting to me that the mushrooms that I found on my recent trip were considerably different than the ones that I typically come across in the forests that are closer to home. A lot more boletes and milkys, next to no chanterelles and such.

    A wonderful collection, Charlie! Obviously, no choice you make will be a poor one.


    A couple more mushroom pictures. This one is of a King Bolete, an incredibly choice and delicious mushroom, one of the tastiest I have had.

    Hey guys, been absent for a little while, my Wife and I recently welcomed twin boys into the world so I am getting caught up on stuff now. In honor of their birth, I had my Waynorth Lambfoot engraved with their initials and birthdate.

    I polished off my patina to get it set up for engraving, so now I get to let it age again, I am pretty excited. Keep up the great photos guys, yours look way nicer than mine.

    Congratulations, Jordan! And best wishes for you and your family. That knife is surely a keeper now (not that it wasn't before).

    Alright folks,

    I've waited longer than I had intended. It is time to get Linus's adventures started. I had planned on taking him on a proper elk hunt but sadly, I forgot to bring the knife with me a couple weeks ago. That said, I've compiled the names on the list and have them noted below. Per Greg's request, I bumped him down a couple of spots and hopefully no one will mind that I've placed the international folks together to ease any sort of shipping burdens.

    Please be communicative to avoid Linus falling through the cracks. If you experience any trouble shipping to the next destination, please get in touch with me and I will assist in whatever manner I can. @Wild Ben, I cannot recall where you are located and I didn't see you on Barrett's map. If you are overseas, then I will move you down with Jack and Chin, I hope you do not mind.

    7. @Wild Ben
    8. @flatblackcapo
    9. @Ramrodmb
    10. @Cambertree
    11. @Jack Black
    Please review the list and let me know if you need to switch spots with anyone or would like to be included or removed. My post regarding this matter is located here and can also be accessed in my signature line: The Extraordinary Adventures of Linus the Lambsfoot!

    I have some events planned this weekend including another hunting jaunt. I will hopefully have a tale to tell and will be shipping off to Vince the following Monday if he is ready for it. Everyone's posts regarding Linus will be linked in my original post so that the adventures can be followed somewhat tidily.

    Thanks, everyone.

    That is a wonderful specimen Dylan, we get Boletus Edulis here too, and I believe across Europe :) When I lived in Sheffield, I lived very close to Sheffield University, and every year Roger Phillips ran a short part-time mycology course. As well as lab sessions, there would always be at least a couple of field trips, and it was great to be out in woods with someone with such incredible knowledge, you really felt that you were in safe hands. I did the course a number of times, but that was 25 ago now I'm afraid :thumbsup:

    Congratulations to you and your wife Jordan :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks once again for doing this Dylan :) :thumbsup:

    Once again, I hope everyone has a great weekend :thumbsup:

    “A Walk in Nature” # 32
    Initially I was not sure if I was going to include this pics in the series. I don't know anything about mushrooms . They may be very poisonous for all I know.
    Dylan @Pàdruig posted some amazing pictures of mushrooms and I thought this pics could show what I usually see in my walks in eastern Ontario ( NOT EDIBLE LOL )

    I'm telling you, Dave, make a schedule and stick to it and you'll be on Easy Street, livin' the dream! :thumbsup::thumbsup::p:D
    My schedule has me change lambsfoots every week, but you can make your schedule be daily or monthly or hourly if you want to.

    Not like England, where there are actual lambs on the mountain tops. This is New Hampshire.
