iPod Glow Leads to Lost Mushroom Picker
By Associated Press

Sat Nov 18, 10:19 PM

CORVALLIS, Oregon. - An iPod screen glowing in the middle of the night from thick underbrush led rescuers to a mushroom picker lost in the woods.

The search leader said Pini Nou, 25, of Vancouver, Wash., was on his first outing and got separated from his mother, an experienced mushroom hunter. At nightfall, she called Benton County authorities for help.

Nou used his cell phone to describe the landscape to rescuers as best he could in the darkness, said Peggy Peirson, acting county emergency management coordinator. They finally located him after 1 a.m. Friday when a member of a search and rescue team saw the light from the iPod, she said.

Nou, lacking a flashlight, had been using the music device for light, Peirson said. She said the underbrush was so thick it took rescuers more than 20 minutes to reach Nou once they saw the glow.

Peirson said he was lightly dressed, and Nou said he was cold and tired and had aching feet.

That probably happened between here and the Coast range. Those mushrooms out there bring in a pretty penny. What sucks is that the season coincides with hunting season, and can cause problems.

Or in other words, it ain't a good idea to wear your fur coat and bullwinkle hat while you're out grubbing for 'shrooms....

Or **** off the Deer/Elk hunters by flushing the game the wrong direction.

Been there, felt like shooting them, kept my composure. Yes, I live in Corvallis. But there ain't no shrooms here. They're 30 minutes to the West.

Anyone else giggle a bit when it first states that he was 25, then says "got separated from his mother"? Makes him sound like a little cub or something.
