A fortunate opportunity find of a lot of shaggymane mushrooms (coprinus comatus) kicked me off on an entirely different experience of social occasion, distinguishing, and gobbling up wild woods mushrooms in the Pacific Northwest. The fascination is like deer hunting: it gets you out into nature and possibly nets you an award, yet you have a good time regardless of whether you bring back anything consumable.
