Trigger warning: I’m about to ratchet up the hippy here in the steroid forum.
It sounds cheesy, but I’ve had a handful of nights that can only be described as magical on LSD. One of those occasions was an Indiana night in the summer of 1998. It started off as a bunch of us realizing we had nothing to do, so someone got the idea to have a party at a farm with the blessing of the owner. So a group of about 30 of us ended up dosing together and having a great big fire on a perfect summer night next to a picturesque pond in a gigantic field of grass where nobody - I mean NOBODY - from the road could either see or hear what was going on in that field.
That last part is really integral to a good trip, if you ask me.
Due to the generous doses of LSD we all had ingested, we did not sleep at all, but instead made the most of a very fine evening. We kept ourselves busy with games like hide and seek, play with fire, paddleboat rides, paddleboat rescues, venturing out away from the fire, watching that guy do that thing, pondering reality and of course laying in the grass listening to the music while you look at the stars.
I don’t remember everything from that night, but every time I hear The Doors song “Peace Frog”, I remember my absolute lunatic buddy blasting that song out of his red Saturn sedan not long after the sun came up, raving at me to get in the fucking car.
I had to take the ride.
So yeah, its been over 15 years since I last took LSD, but I hear those steroids work pretty well too.
