Last fall 2 of our local mushroom club luminaries travelled from San 
Francisco to somewhere in New Mexico to hunt 'shrooms after 
mountain thunderstorms.  They scored big time on boletes.  Problem became 
getting them home sans spoilage.   So much of the pick went into coolers 
along with some *dry* ice.  When they got home, all the mushroom maggots 
had died, apparently from breathing too much CO2!

try that...
