A few days ago a friend of mine  found some morels near Fox Ridge Park,
south of Charleston in central Illinois. They were so big, he said, that
he had to go home and get his chain saw in order to harvest them. When he
told one local old-timer about it, he got some advice: 
-"Boy, you don't know much...You should have brung a backhoe. The best 
part on them big ones is the roots..."
