Skip Payne has made a bit of a reputation for himself in the Mushroom Hunting Community as that “lone wolf guy who disappears into the woods for a few hours and comes out with monster hauls of mushrooms.”
Skip attributes his successes in the field to three main brackets:
With this presentation, Skip will dive into each of these categories, affectionately abbreviated “RIP”- sharing his experiences, and revealing helpful methods and tools that you may take on your next hunt if you choose! If nothing else, you’ll hopefully be entertained by a few stories and be inspired to get out there and find some mushrooms!
Inevitably, Skip’s passion for fungus evolved into “Skip’s Shrooms” in which he has a created a line of popular spices made with his foraged mushrooms and home-grown garlic, along with other secret ingredients. 3 of these blends will be available for tasting and purchase if so desired!
