Counterpoint: Ticks.  Fark ticks and everything they stand for.  A few fiddleheads or mushrooms are not worth lyme disease.

Spray up.  They only seem to flourish at certain times and I've come to recognize the conditions.  Deet is best but it sucks putting that stuff on and doesn't do your gear/cloths any good.  A good percentage of picaridin (i.e., not Off but Sawyer) does very well but not good as deet so choose your battles.  If that berry patch is infested with chiggers, you may need to put the deet on your legs because those things are ruthless in numbers.

Permethryn (sp?) Is great too.  Apply to clothing and you don't stink of deet all day long and have that scum on your skin

Forage all you want.

Foraging is NOT an essential skill of any kind if you live in a first world country, nor is it essential to "live life to its fullest".  That's farking stupid.

Oh, FFS, no.

I live in the Pacific Northwest. Foraging for mushrooms out here, unless you're DAMNED good at identification, is a bad idea for amateurs. We have near-constant press & articles here about safe mushrooming, because we get an inordinate number of folks poisoning themselves on misidentified (or just plain unidentified) wild mushrooms. They're plentiful here, and we have the nastier varieties - amanita poisoning sucks.

All the time I spent in the back country of the Black Hills this summer allowed me to "forage" on my lunch breaks. I'd snarf my apple and sandwich in 10 minutes, then spend the next 20 attacking the raspberry patch. Found some serviceberries and currants as well. There are supposedly some huckleberries in that area too but I never found them.

Do not cook bacon naked without an oven door between you and said bacon.

It's all fun and games until they cook am egg in a microwave. Then everyone suffers
