My fellow SE Michigan food freaks...Ramps Seaon is coming!

Anyone want to go out with me? I know where they are in great numbers. Would not mind having a date in mid May that we can get together to go gather Ramps, drink some beer, cook up some beast and end up having a terrible hangover the next day. This would be located just a hair east of Lansing not to far from I-96.
Boy, that sounds fun! Dumb question, though---is the point to enjoy the ramps, or to discover the adjacent morels? If morels are the point, are you sure you can steer people away from a poisonous look-alike? (not to be a wussie about it, but I got a lot of bills still to pay before I die.)
Ramps and Morels may not be growing during the same time. This would mainly be a Ramp trip...any morels found would be just a extra. I will say i have never found a morel in the same direct area as the ramps. You have to go a full 1/2 mile away for the morels. :)
I can easily tell the three kinds of morels I usually find from the bad boys (False morels). False Morels actually would never get you that sick anyways. I would never serve you anything I would not eat myself.
I may love spicy food but I am not much for poison!
