- You won't spend $60 a gallon to buy them, but you'll spend $350 a gallon to go and pick them yourself
- You will drive to your favorite spot, even if the road is bad and under construction and it takes you 4 hours on a windy, narrow, on the edge of a cliff road
- You pack enough food for 10 days for 10 people, even if there's only 4 of you
- You consider making that 4 hour trip back to town because you're running low on beer
- You consider bug spray brands that work, and ditch the ones that don't, who has time to be concerned about mosquito's at a time like this
- You travel on foot deep, and I mean deep, into the wilderness in search of ripe berries, the only trails are those used by deer, elk and bears
- Your college kids friend, who goes on this adventure for the first time, makes the kind remark "I never would have ventured into the brush, over downed trees and up hills like this for any other reason"
- Every person in your "hunting" party is armed with bear spray, and they know how to use it
- You have sidearms, just in case you run into one of those bears and he/she wants your berries and you don't want to give them up
- The only bears that would ever come within 100 yards of your hunting party are named "Rocky" (your kids Beagle that keeps getting lost in the brush
- You have a berry cleaning system (can't use water) and you're so tired when you're cleaning that you must have a microbrew at your side instead of the bear spray
- You plan you "vacation" around huckleberry picking season
- You have a favorite Huckleberry recipe that "is to die for" and when you make it, all your friends want to come over
- You dream of huckleberry bushes, and the next best bush for weeks after you get back from your trip
