After-rain / after work foraging

I'm reposting this as I think I did it wrong yesterday. We'll forage fungi and other plants, and a birder friend of mine is coming along, so binoculars might be fun. I am not Mr Mushroom but I know some of the common easy ones. Other more knowledgeable types would be great!!Skandinaver är särskilt välkomna. Hard rain will cancel the walk, little drizzle not so much. Bringing kids is okay as long as you take responsibility for them. Make sure they don't eat plants unless you personally identify and approve the plant. Call me if in question, lost or late. [masked]

Only eat mushrooms you have positively identified yourself.
Identify mushrooms a second time during preparation and cook them properly.
Do not combine mushroom types.
Retain a sample of any mushroom for analysis in case of poisoning.
Inform yourself about deadly mushrooms that are look-alikes of edible ones. "Deadly twins" differ regionally, so take into account regional variation.
Do not gather mushrooms that are difficult to identify, unless you have expert knowledge. This applies especially to the mushrooms of the genus Amanita or Cortinarius and "little brown mushrooms".
Consume only a small amount the first time you try a new species. People react differently to different mushrooms, and all mushroom species can cause an adverse reaction in a few individuals, even the common champignon.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
