“I would love to go but at the moment can't make any commitments.”
“If I can get Saturday 4/28 off work would someone be able to meet in Bloomington Friday after work and have room for me to ride?”
If I can get Saturday 4/28 off work would someone
“Here is my email firstname.lastname@example.org hit me up when it gets closer to the date.”
“I'll try to remember to email you a couple weeks before.”
“The weather is warming here in Indiana. I hope we a great mushroom season here. I think if our weather stays warm like this upcoming week with temps in the mid 60's in a couple of weeks we might start finding a few mushrooms.
The trip is still on. There are a couple of names I don't know signed up for the trip every is welcome.
See you down the trail.
“We will need to keep our group size to 10 hikers. If we go over 10 we will need to split into 2 groups. I have had several trips to Deam and someone always has to cancel for one reason or another. Sometime life just gets in the way of hiking. So we will keep the trip open to however many and if our number goes over 10 we will go from there.”
“You list campsite 14 for Saturday night. Where is that? I did not know they number the sites.”
“I was unaware they numbered the sites as well. Hope to make this trip”
“I don't think all the campsites have a number. This site is not the most senic and there is no water there.
The reason I picked this site is that I found a bunch of Mushrooms there last year.
With the warm weather we are having here now I'm not sure we are going to have mushrooms here by this weekend. They might be gone by then. We will have to see.
If so we can pick a better site with water.
This campsite is near the Grube Ridge/Peninusla split.”
“Morrells are poppin bigtime here in the Ozarks! Good luck y'all, sounds like a great hike.”
Local Mushroom Report
“I went down to the lake to see if we could find any mushrooms. We found 3 gray morels. I think that yes some of the mushrooms are coming up early the normal time which will still be about 2 weeks away will still be good mushroom hunting.
I was worried that with the warm weather we are having here that by the time we went on our trip to the Deam that all the mushrooms would be gone.”
“I know not to believe everything I hear about mushrooms (some will go to great lengths to misinform) but there is a lot of info at www.morels.com”
Trip is Canceled
“I am going to cancel this trip. I have been out hunting mushrooms and I think by the 27 the mushrooms are going to be gone. I think that they might be ending here by this weekend.
If you would like to go I have another trip planned the next weekend. To go down and camp on the pennsuila the following weekend. Here is a link for that trip.
I will leave this trip page up so I know that everyone has got the message. This Spring Weather has been far from the normal and we will try the trip again next Spring. If you know someone that was planning on going please contact them. Ed I think you had a friend that was not on facebook interested in going if you could contact him that would be helpful.
If you can take your name off this trip as going I will know you got the message.
“Probably would have been a good trip even without the mushrooms.”
“for the heads up”
Our week end plans still include Deam Wilderness:
“Doc (from Peoria) and I are going out there this Friday, meeting at the Grubb Ridge Trailhead parking lot about 2:00 p.m. We will then hike south to the Martin Hollow Trail and take the Sycamore trail, turning north and camping at Peepers Pond at the end of the trail for Friday night. On Saturday, we hike back out the Terill Ridge Trail, take the north loop of the Axom Branch Trail to the north side of the Grubb Ridge Loop, and where the Grubb Ridge Loop Trail turns south, just after the turn, take a social trail west less than a mile to camp above Patton Cave. On Sunday we will hike back to the cars.”
