pro nose picker, im in the loop of friends you wish you had, you stick with august and chris they are smart as heck

& what no comment on the badger creek boundaries you crossed with crooked fingers

This feels like a violation of your efforts to stretch the truths of your boundaries to include others in your space. Once rejected you take the defensive

Trust me Gerry, one does not have to read your private emails with Chris Matherly to figure out you were trying to get both rich and famous off this failed morel foray with the discovery channel. The way you talk about all the money and advertising you should have recieved for one mushroom foray is a laughable as Cascade King calling himself a noble picker.

To Pro Picker;

You slipped up Chris. Maybe you should research your email records again, you will see that your comments have no basis, and again, no truths. You are the only person who knows that I wanted to be paid for accomodating the Discovery Crew, but if you remember, I was also willing to see a donation being made to the Association in lieu of being paid myself.

Now think about this Chris, Why would a company feed, house, and entertain a film crew for; No money and No advertising? Especially when the topic of the show is supposed to be Remote Morel Harvesting with Mushroom Hobbyists and their Foray Leader. At least that was what you sold me on, remember.

There was no Money paid out to do the show, it was for learning only and not even Chris made any money from the T.V. program. I should know because I had to sign a reless form.

I seriously doubt the Discovery Channel or any other film company is looking to make you both rich and famous at the same time. If they had paid the loads of cash you demanded for the foray, why would you expect them to advertise for you as well? I doubt they would have shown your face or even mentioned your company. Your reward for taking them out would have been all the cash you demanded. Also, if you are going to call someone's words "immortal" shouldn't you take the time to quote them correctly?

Morelmaniac, Merry Christmas to you. I understand you have a business to run. I just think that have TV cameras on the trip do not add to the "adventure". The "adventure" is the actual trip and once again in my opinion if people go on a forey because of the fleeting hope to be on TV are missing the point.

I'm not sure but I would be willing to bet you have never planned for a remote harvest. There is a lot of work behind trips like these, and if you do it wrong, you could end up with a lot of problems.

As for the T.V. part, remember the immortal words of Andy Warhol, " Everbody will get their 15 minutes of fame" or something like that. Not everybody who works or picks in this industry does so for altruistic reasons. I do what I do to teach and to make a decent living. But if I invest $100,000.00+ into my company, I expect to make profit. For my company, the Discovery Channel presence offer as a bonus to host the club was a big attractor. Not sure why you don't see why people would consider a scenario like this as an Adventure Vacation, even if this is not something you might do yourself.

Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year to All

I have been trying to keep my words to a low key. Brain, You see there is more to the real Store then you think you know. You just showed many how you really think. Just because I had something to do with Chris M, dose not give you the right to place me on a whipping post because you don't like who I'am and only wish you knew as much as I know.

I have a very good reason that this is not all August. I happen to know that he also was taken by CM when someone gave CM money to be passed on to August in appreciation for his help.

I also recognize the spelling of CM and his style of talk. Don't I CM.

Thanks for the Heads-up though. I appreciate that.

Gerry, you are new to matsiman as far as I can tell. So here is some insight. August posts under so many aliases its impossible to follow his smear trail. His spelling errors do however give away his identity.I suspect almost all negative comments directed towards you come from one source. Your time is probably bettered served by not responding to his attempt to anger you.

To Old Picker.

The "Canadian Welcome" is for the person who wishes to call me a "Snake" and put me in the same category as CM. I am sure the American people can see that, even if you can't. It seems to me the courts are filled with people suing for slander these days. I have no desire to go there just because someone said something nasty, I can take care of myself.

Now to the part of taking CM's house. I never said that I would take his house, just want CM to realize the severity of the situation he has put himself in.

Again, if you wish to see how "Fair" I have been with CM, give me an email, gerry_landry@yahoo.com. Once you read the offer, post again regarding how over the top I have been in all of this.

i would say your right on old picker and i also would never go north to pick for gerry and are work for anyone like him. chris should have something to say but to say it here an now would be bad timing for there are some people like cascade king, garry, marin, Brian sometimes gose by ----zilla and other's that would just like to pick on those who believe there is another side to the store. I have read it all so fare and i believe there just trying to make them selfs look like hero's that have nothing to better to do why ele's would Andy put them with this side of the board. everone ele's on the other boards don't care what is going on here. So only the low life that what to give there H.D. are staying here and I well go back to reading the other boards and do my best to talk more about mushrooms then post thing about other's. it has become a bar of rope soap looking for durt to talk about. they should of said there peace and gone on with there lives and as for chris well i would say he has read this board and well tell his side sometime later after all has been said.

To Forest Harvest.

Anytime you wish to come to my door and call me a "Snake"; ask for the address, there are lots of people who know where I live. I will be sure to give you a true Canadian welcome.

I suggest you take the time to evaluate the evidence in front of you and have the sensibility to think before you speak. That way you are not the one choking.

Brian; Thank-you for the well wishes, and the same to all.

Gerry

p.s. forest harvest, anytime you want to hear the truth, 250.782.5209. I wonder why Chris has yet to answer his phone about this matter, or even put up some defense. Could it be that he's been caught and has no defense, except stupidity?

To Morel.

The reason Jennifer is thanking the Matsiman visitors is because it was this site that helped her find the truth about the trip. This man was not about to pay her or anyone else that didn't have the law behind them demanding payment for their money.

Chris Matherly only paid Jennifer because he knows he has been caught in his lies and he has no choice unless he wants to face a judge.

I got news for you all, Chris Matherly, I, Gerry Landry, am coming after you through the courts for the damages you have cost me, and all of the money you took from the Guests. I helped Jennifer and I'll help the rest to get their money back from you.

I am coming after you through the courts to shut you down and wipe away the s%^$ stain you have smeared the Mushroom Community with by and through your actions.

I have made you a fair offer to settle with me, you have 48 1/2 hrs to decide according to the deadline I have given you.

I've always liked the history of Georgia, now maybe I will have a home there, worth about $145,000.00's or so.

$3000-$5000 to go bear watching, fishing , hunting, skiing whatever, a Vacation is what you want it to be, where you want it and doing what you want to do. OhYeah... Mushrooms are selling to wholesalers for $125.00/lb. By the way I do believe that's $3,000. Not 30.

Hi Neil. Nice to see you on the board. I appreciate your suporting input. As you can see there are not too many more posting their negative comments. They have been given the truth and to continue on would be an exercise in futility.

I am planning for the 09 season and all jobs are still open for you and all the members of last years staffing program set in place. Except the Cook. Apparently he was found to be cooking something he shouldn't and now he is working for the federal boys in their kitchens. He says he will be available for the 2010 season, but I have passed. So I will be looking out for a new chef.

I have been very interested to read some of the comments about the "failed morel foray" because I was supposed to be one of the people going in there to help teach and look after the guests. First a little background on myself....I have been in this industry for over 20 years and have been all over western Canada and NW Untied States picking and buying mushrooms, all kinds of different mushrooms with morels being one of them. Gerry started talking to me about the "foray" early last spring and this was after we had numerous conversations about his company and his objectives as far as his company was concerned. We had discussed many aspects of how this was going to work and for a period in the spring we were on the phone or emailing almost every day. I was even in contact with other "front end" people that were backing Gerry. Gerry was keeping me updated on what was happening with the mushroom club that was supposed to come to Canada and go with us into the remote camp. As time began to grow short for all the little ducks to be lined up both Gerry and I began to feel the tension of not having "as it turns out" this Chris Matherly complete his end of things so we could move forward with our, meaning Gerry's plan and in extension everybody else's that was supposed to be employed in the eco tour. I am well aware that Gerry recieved the advance payment 45 days late and short a third of what it was supposed to be, as well as not certified. I am also aware that even after Gerry had told Chris that because the basic requirements had not been met that the remote was canceled, Chris was still advising people that had paid him money to go on the remote to head north everything was a go. I realize everyone will have their own opinion about this sort of thing but from where I sit and knowing what I know I will keep dealing with Gerry and hopefully become involved with eco tourism this season but Chris you had best see your lawyer, probably a good idea to keep him on retainer.

"Idaho for instance - closed down much of the picking areas after tons of garbage was left behind by the commercial groups trashing the forests." Cascade King

Idaho's commercial mushroom camps were closed for racist reasons and nothing more. There was no garbage left in these camps and the forests weren't "trashed". No citations were issued to pickers for littering either, which would seem to be the first logical step if the forest service was to honestly claim the forests were trashed. Picking was still allowed in Idaho if you had a season or "personal use" permit.

Hey dude - a picture says a 1000 words, (not saying iv seen pics of you in the wilderness), but many of the pics I saw, are clearly in areas of no picking, read the regulations the state or forest service provides for us in Washington and Oregon and Idaho, you might accidently learn some things, by reading, dont get your info off the web, try calling, better yet ---- get a dirrect snail mail update from the proposed area you intend to target, that way its on paper.

This is because every year sites can change status frequently with closures.

Idaho for instance - closed down much of the picking areas after tons of garbage was left behind by the commercial groups trashing the forests.

Dont close down my woods because you cant read or follow our state regulations

you want me to add more ?

Im not trying to start a war im just trying to open the eyes of the public so nobody gets this drama again. my famley and friends are suffering. I've lost lots of sleep over this and im sure a lot of people have. Chris Matherly you can have your lawyer call me to discuss the price your payment . I love your site but trying to erase things won't work ..

Cascade King, For your info I have never taking anyone Into a wilderness and there is no pic's that show me picking in the wilderness and I would like you to show me where they were taking. You are really out to show others how DUM you really are. LOL

No Name needed.

Sorry about the wait, I've been busy with the IFCC. They are very particular about making sure statements are valid.

On to your comments. Chris Matherly was given an opprotunity to write all he wants, and Why does he need time to give his side of this "Never ending Story" in the first place? If he's not in the wrong, then he should have had his lawyer give me a call. Besides, if he'll forge and fabricate a document and pass it off to his club members, 2-3 days after the real cancellation was given, what is he going to fabricate this time.

I have no idea why Chris acted in the manner he did, considering his excellent website and the exposure he had with the Cash and Treasure show. But that so called Reputation does not allow him to falsify documents, deliberately mislead his members, mis-represent the intentions of Discovery Channel and straight out have my company do all of his logistical research setting up his itinerary without seeing someone seeking retribution and compenasation. Did I forget not refunding monies advanced by his members.

As to Discovery Channel backing out at the last minute. I never said that Discovery backed out at the last minute, I stated that Discovery never had plans to film this foray period. And Chris knew this long before he finally gave me the Discovery Channel contact on June 4/08.

Chris deliberately sold a false bill of goods to both his members and I and he's been caught.

Finally, Your final comment regarding the "No Fame No Gains for My Company"

If my company was not going to receive the exposure, why would I allow 1 group of guests that did not even cover expenses let alone see my company make a profit. Just for your Knowledge. Just to outfit a 10 guest camp, with all safety equipment included, carries a cost over $100,000.00.

I await Chris's version of his reasons as to why he did the things he did, but if your reading this, I will accept a call from Chris with his explanation. Depending on what he says will determine if I finish what I've started.

Good Night.

A, august, madmorel, alice or what ever you call yourself sense you have multi handles on the matsi boards and it has confused way to many people as to your true identity, people catch on. hope you dont do that to your paying customers.

As for you teaching folks, you sure didnt teach chris much, in his photos of the trips I personally viewed were of morels with roots attached in almost every pic, them pics were golden, not to mention some of the locations in the pics were clearly off limits to commercial harvest. the whole internet world saw them pics and made many people very unhappy! guess your OK with that, im not.

as for you trying to make a buck go do it, IM not stopping you from benefiting off our wildernesses or woods, you for one knows the rules out west and you failed to teach that to chris

You can cry all you want but your still busted, the only thing I have against you is that I want you to follow the rules like I have to, plain and simple, be insured, be licensed and bonded, so when time comes, your pay per views are protected.

I dont need nor want your patches, iv got more than i can scout as it is, I found so many mushrooms this year I didnt even make it to half of my special places, was no need to.

but please

read the rules for each forest you enter, they change frequently, you have to know they are all different and require sepperate permits, please make sure your paying customers are aware of this fact before you send them into a bees nest of fines, as a guide you take on a whole lot of responcibilities and iv failed to see that through your comments or chris's pictures or folks iv talked to who attended some of the morel clubs forays.

I want more preservation and protection of our forested lands and when I see commercial robbery in places it dont belong, it takes on a whole new meaning.

just cover your bases and dot your i's, that is all the meaningful advice i can give you, your customers will judge you from there, on my3cents.com, that site speaks for its self

Cascade king. So you say am a bad guy well sham on you and sham on you for not using your old handle. I would really like to know why your so a sham of it. I know who I am and am not a sham and many people the did pay for the Mt St Helen's trip got what they payed for. I do believe a pay foray is right when I take them to places that I have picked over many years and I never took them to where others picked. I have always pick patches that I have found a long time before they the other people found some but not all and I still look on for new ground because of people like you cry out that you were there first and its your place. The Forest belong to you and me and to those six or seven states away and if they won't to pay for the trip,It's up to them and not for you to say it's wrong. A job is a job and I well never work for free. I really love most of the people here and I know they don't alway post to dum ass people like other's that just won't to bad mouth anything or anyone that comes up with new ways to make a living and teach others what is safe to eat. You are just like some others that I have know that say that to many people are out there hunting shrooms and you don't like it. At last someone is teaching them The right way to Harvest more then I could say for you. I don't give a dam if you like me are not because life goes on and I well keep teaching those that won't to learn and take what I teach them back home. We had Teachers, Lawyers, Doctors and others that won't ed to pick for them selfs and be safe at what they could take home to eat and they don't mine if they payed cash for my teaching. I said peace and I know there well be feed back from people even you Marion so go fore it. you have your right to say and well I won't go there. A"

truffledog - you forgot to mention the mt st helens volcanic monument foray, that was guided by august in october, that stated it was to be a once in a life time free for all on protected lands.

then prior to this was trips to mt rainier in more wilderness areas.

thanks to a few good people for screwing up fun for the honest folks who just want to seek and not profit, all in the name of cash and treasure, and maybe get on TV, a point well taken and abused by a guy six states away by a guy with no empathy for regulations or forethought.

I tried to warn others about him 2 years ago but was banned and made to hide behind a different handle.

IM so glad this is finally exposed and lets go some of my fowl tastes this industry can offer by a select few. I will NOT forget the names of the people who badgered me on the matsiman site for me sticking up for the right reasons and not the wrong ones - jerks - now hide your shameless faces, you know who you are!

PS: this wasnt the learning curve I was looking for on the matsi boards, but sold me the vision on who not to deal with and warn others who might fall prey.
