I ask my wife about it this morning, she said it was tea. Once in a while she will ask me if I want to get some more and try it again, I just might give it a try again. It was way back in 1972 when that happen, she said I really flipped out on it, scared the chit out of her. To this day I don't remember what happen. I wonder what kind affect it would have on me now.

I had a buddy who was an Italian spec ops dude that would shore up income by hunting for truffles- He used a dog not a pig.

I was effing shocked at the prices paid for that.

He said it was the best part time job ever- he'd go out in the woods with his dog, dig stuff up, come back and sell his 'catch' for thousands of dollars.

basically he got paid big cash for doing a nature walk.

Only thing I have hunted in the woods is pig, elk, deer, turkey and Shrooms.

When I was a young lad the best shrooms in middle Georgia could be found on the pastures of the sheriff for the country next to ours.

We never made any money off it but certainly took some trips.

Wisconsin produces the best Ginseng in the entire world. And, the governor decided it would be good to sell a ton of land to the Chinese. With the prices skyrocketing and the Chinese owning more Wisconsin production it looks to be an extremely stupid move by the governor.

Great plot line but Ginsing is a commercially cultivated agricultural crop like any other legal plant we eat and does not cost $1000 a pound. I would doubt a ton of the stuff costs that much. It's found in virtually every energy drink and and some popular ice tea mixes. If it did cost $1000 a pound every farmer would be planting it in quantity.

Find a small-shop or just a Chinese shop at all that sells things like ginseng and other herbals - they want/prefer to buy the *wild* ginseng - for damned good prices. They'll tell you there's a huge difference between domesticated and wild, they also have ways to tell the difference between the two by inspecting them (I don't how they do either of those things, I just sold it to them).

Y'all might try pronouncing it as "sang"... saying "Jin-sing" marks you as an outlander!

Now if we can just the price of stinging nettles up. Lots of wild mushrooms grow here but some really poison ones do to. We do have sassafras growing here.
