Mushroom Picker Saved by iPod

Posted on November 19, 2006

The Associated Press reports that a lost mushroom picker was saved by the glow of his iPod screen.

Pini Nou of Vancouver, Washington was on his first mushroom picking excursion when he got separated from his mother. His mother is an expert mushroom hunter. Search parties finally located him after he used his cellphone to describe his surroundings, then help up his iPod so they could find him.

The moral of the story: never go mushroom picking without your iPod.
