Re: Trippin at a show.

MushroomMan,

I think it was Best Buy, but one venue had cops in the men's room. Somebody asking for drugs could be undercover...or is that entrapment?

Trippin' at a show...hmmmm...keeping in mind and respecting set and setting...definately.

I respect those who choose not to (I respect the Warfrats as well). There are plenty of ways to be high and happy.

Has anyone mentioned Contact High?

I think Furthur puts something in the air at shows....

I find the west coast, and Bay Area especially, to be more psychedelic, both the music and the audience. I expect Eugene, Red Rocks, and Monterey to be the best shows for trippin', but you never know.

Historically, the connection between LSD (and other psychedelics) and the Grateful Dead is significant, both in the creation of music & lyrics, and in audience participation.

MushroomMan,

For me, 3 or 4 grams of shrooms is quite a large dose. 2 grams is enough for me, and I have a lot of experience with these. I guess the potency can vary quite a bit.

I actually prefer shrooms when I go backpacking or being out in nature. For shows I prefer acid...it's like shrooms are a more interior trip and I don't feel as present at the show...more in my own head...a little detached.

But I switch them up too.

1000% accurate and scary re: best buy. I popped into a stall and took off my shoe for a second, and when I turned around there was someone looking in the crack where the stall door was. When I left I watched him walk down the bathroom and actually look over some of the stalls to see what they were doing inside. It looked like a best buy employee to me but it may have been a cop.

And there was at least one uniformed cop in the venue during the show.

Pshhh not crazy in the least. I only smoked for shoreline n had the most amazing time ever. =-D not sayin anything against tripping of course, lol. For me at least, i wont argue wit having some brownies n caramel in my vanilla icecream. lol that totally sounded weird. What i mean is, they are fantastic enough alone but a lil added toppings dont hurt hahahahhahah =-P

I don't think it's so much the potency as it is how much different mushrooms could be, not only from 1 person to another but from trip to trip with the same person, at least that's what I've noticed. I actually did 2 grams over the weekend and was feeling them pretty nice and I know people who will trip pretty hard off 2 grams and then others that might not even feel as much off an eighth. Sometimes people could want to trip so hard and be expecting to and that will actually take away from the whole experience..... I think I'm going off topic a little but some will be better quality obviously but that usually dosn't varry that much, enless your comparing nasty old ones to fresh ones.

i have seen ALOT of GD and ratdog/dead/furthur etc. and i used to almost always dose with L or X or shrooms, but now i usually only take something like less than half the time, i hate not remembering the show afterwards. and at ratdog and furthur shows, i feel like im trippin even if im not. i think it has to do with being around alot of tripping people, and the band being good at what they do.

it is hit or miss...you are either making the music completely in sync with the band or you are off, and it's usually whatever is going on upstairs

if youv'e got some other shit on your mind, it ain't happening


i've probably dosed or eaten fungus or sass at 75% of the 200+ shows i've been to, lately not so much none at all during the summer tour...surrounding circumstances need to be aligned for the time to be right nowadays


So true...............

I was going into the bathroom at Best Buy this year and a group of a few people sitting at a table stopped me and said "hey, do you know where I can get some crystal meth?" and they sounded and looked pretty serious. I just kind of looked at them weird and was about to walk away and they said "just kidding!! .... you should see the looks on peoples faces when we ask them that" then someone else in the group said "I don't even think theres anybody here that has crystal meth" ..... so I'm pretty sure they were just messing around. I was being asked for doses and molly the whole run but I really wasn't expecting that crystal meth question....


The first person I ran into at the lot at Shoreline asked me if I wanted some Oxycontons! Really who the fuck wants to just nod off on the grass for a whole show? What about the home made nitrous muffins? I remember when they were laying down a drum solo at Shoreline in 09 and the smell of deemsters just permeated the air, I'm not too into blasting off at shows but if there were ever a time...
