(New Memberships to the club can now be purchased and will help to expedite getting the official website back up and running. New memberships will start as soon as the website is back up and running and continue a full year from that point so there is no loss of time and you will get your full year membership benefits.)
NEW: I have received several emails regarding wanting to donate to help 


get the website back up and running. I DON'T like asking as I am usually the 


one helping others out. But I must be humble at this point.




Here is an example email:






    I did not realize how dire your financial situation was (not to mention the other circumstances you mention).  I suspect that I and


probably many others, would gladly contribute at least a moderate amount toward your website in the light of your explanation, and


maybe also a little bit toward your health care.  Personally I would prefer to do this by check in the U.S. mail rather than online, so I


would want an address to send it to.  Most of the shroomers probably feel more comfortable than I transferring funds electronically.


    Thanks for the update.  I will put you in my prayers.  And I hope that the website will be revived; I love looking at it and seeing


what people are finding throughout the U.S.






Here is a link to make a donation:



or if you prefer, you can mail a check to:

(Memberships to the club will resume as soon as the website is 


back up and running)



Please Note:

All memberships are manually created and you should receive an email for log in instructions within 24 hours. If you don't get the email within 24 hours, it most likely went into your spam filter file. Check your spam filter, and if you don't see them email there, then please text me at 478-217-5200 and I will hook you up immediately! Thank you, enjoy the site, and happy shrooming!

Member Benefits


So you have been coming to this website for a while now, or maybe for the first time, and used the “Current Mushrooms Finds” page, or the “Recipe of The Month”, took a guess at the “Mushroom Photo Of the Month”, viewed the “Morel Progression Maps”, or took a look at the extensive 650+ “Species List” with photos and descriptions, or maybe you submitted a photo to Chris to get his help with the “Mushroom Identification” of your find. Maybe you left a message on the “Morel Message Board”. All of these things are free to the public, and what a job it is just to keep up with all of this. So what on Earth could there be beyond this in the “Member Areas” that would be a benefit to me?


The member areas contain so much data and info, that it would take you days to go through it all. There are hundreds of specific web pages on specific subjects, and many thousands of photos. Here is a list of many of the pages:
