  3. I read in some article that lignin in hardwood starts to degrade when the temperature reaches 240-260 degrees celcius. So if I were to heat sawdust to that temperature and ferment it using wheat bran and yeast, wouldn't the sawdust, in theory, ferment faster due to the fact that bacteria don't have to spend their time breaking down lignin? Or is this not how it works?

    Anyone else feel this way?

    I also agree with you. I guess some are born to appreciate, and some aren't. Just the way how life goes.

  7. Which National Park did you go to? I also live in OC but everything is pretty much dried up here. The only luck that I got for colleting rotten oak leaves and wood was going to San Bernardino Mountains

    I doubt you go to prison. I have seen people getting caught(which is pretty dam rare) and they only had to pay fines.
  11. I believe it's illegal to collect insects in South America. It's also illegal to take insects to the U.S from any other country. My friend succeeded in bringing some beetles to the U.S from Korea long time ago. However, i doubt you can do those kinds of things now.

    Hey, not too bad! I would wait about 1 more week before looking for granti. Also, it's best to collect the day after a rain.
