Shroomers

This is not a post about positives/negatives of shrooming. I have done it before, and I enjoy it quite a bit. It can turn in to that afterwards, as long as my question is answered, I don’t care.

I know there are some guys on the boards who have drug experience as well, so that’s why this thread has been made.

Basically, my friend and I are planning a trip to Disney World this Spring. One day we’re definitely going to take some shrooms and wander around. I’m not totally sure if I want to do anything more than a lower-dosage, seeing as how it is in public and our actions would be amplified were we to…
A.) Start giggling about the cool line queues for Space Mountain, B.) Start having a bad trip, C.) Stumble trying to get ourselves situated for Splash Mountain… you get the point.

ANYWAY, my question is this: Would I be able to to achieve an all-day event if I were to take, say, 2.5 g in the morning upon waking prior to getting into the parks (about 8-9 AM) and then 2.5 g at maybe 4-5 PM… so, you know, we can do the whole shroom thing at night and see some kickass fireworks / laser light shows (depending on where we go.)

So anyway, my friend theorized that after doing them earlier the body may not react in a way to get a trip going again. Anyone have thoughts?

SWIM feels that your original idea is similar to something they have done in the past, and no tolerance was affected.

One trip won’t effect your tolerance that much. I’d eat an eighth before going to the park and not eat any more there. Then I’d eat 4g an hour before the fireworks or whatever. Actually, I’d eat it 2 hours before if you plan on sleeping. Rather, that’s what I’d recommend for someone to do.

fuck that idea, and fuck going to florida… go to Vegas or plan it around a massive rave in Los Angeles where people will be more than happy to accentuate your high with light shows, massages and insightful conversations about Wal-Mart taking over the world or some shit and fry balls there instead.

There get on his level, but please find some females.

Thanks for the responses guys. I know I wasn’t going to get a whole lot, seeing as this is a fitness forum, and not a drug one. :slight_smile:

Just so I’m clear, the message could be interpreted either way, did you mean “No, tolerance WAS affected,” or “tolerance was not affected.” Either way, it’s nice to know other people have similar ideas and interests, and are up for exploring new endeavors. Thanks!

I didn’t think so, but my roommate (who is a bit more experienced than me in shroomery,) thought that it might over the course of the day… thinking that basically the brain would become acclimated to the psychobilin-poisoned state, and just wouldn’t really reap the same effects later. I’m definitely interested in opinions on this, so I don’t end up wasting like $20-30, you know?

Plus, 3.5 on an empty stomach at 8 in the morning accompanied by orange juice isn’t probably a good idea. Even with experienced shroomers (I wouldn’t say I’m a novice,) 3.5g+ can be unpredictable. Got to remember, you don’t control the shrooms, they control you. If something went haywire in Disney World and I was cheesing my effing balls out, that could be disastrous. I’d rather not be a headline the next day.

Nah, just not the same man. First, the guy I’m going with and I have a close connection to WDW that we’ve had our entire lives. So it’s got that extra dimension of nostalgia. Plus, we can totally navigate any of the parks without maps, from memory. This will help us out a lot when we’re tripping balls a bit.

Plus we have a pretty cool and extremely cheap way to access Disney World. We’re also bringing at least 2 oz worth of edibles with us… in the form of Macadamia Nut cookies, Banana Bread, etc etc. Should be a great time.

And as for a rave… man I’d rather be on some MDA / MDMA for that shit. Shrooms and that scene just don’t mix. I think Disney World itself is kind of a stretch, although I’m not too worried about crowds. People usually mind their own shit. I’m just going to have to make sure to bring some sunglasses so my huge ass pupils won’t draw attention, haha.

I love mushies!!! but we’re talking an all day event at Disney World…definitely go with a larger dose to start the day and ride the waves till the late afternoon before determining how much you want to eat again.

And what about food? and beverages? They will affect your buzz all day. I like to enjoy fungi with beer. The quality of said zoomers is also a factor and I think will probably be the most influential factor of your entire experience!

Ive never been to Disney World :frowning: Have fun!

You’ve seen Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas too many times. Stop being a pussy and eat at least an eighth. You’ll be at DisneyLand; no one’s going to notice you if you’re acting a little weird and if they do notice, they’ll think you’re just drunk.

Think so? I will say it’s definitely going to be a down time in Disney World and we’ll be there early enough the large crowds won’t really start invading our buzz until 2-3 PM or so. I think I’d be fine because I’m a bigger guy, but my friend who is going down may have only done shrooms once or twice, is 5’8" and 150. I just really hope he can keep his shit together. Also: We will have a sitter with us, in case we start getting too trippy.

Well, again, the day we shroom, we’re going to take them on an empty stomach early in the mornnig with orange juice (Vitamin C helps the trip a LOT.) I’m planning on just bringing bags of protein into the park with me, so I can just conveniently make shakes throughout the day. We’re bringing some kind of weed edibles with us, too, so that will (unfortunately) satiate some of the effect of the shrooms throughout the day. Though it is very possible we may not even need those on that particular day.

And when it comes to Disney World… it’s going to be a blast. They are VERY miticulous with their details and making you feel like you’re totally isolated from the rest of the world. I mean, for the Expedition Everest ride, you appraoch a 200-foot tall Everest-clone and walk through Tibetan-type gondalas filled with information about Yetis and shit. I think little things like this will really help the tripping experience.

I don’t think you understand. At least, it sounds like you don’t. Have you tripped before? Like, more than a few times? Even with experienced users, things just go awry. I’m pretty good with controlling my mind and allowing myself to just “ride with the shrooms,” but you never know.

Plus, if someone “thinks we’re drunk,” then we’d have to deal with WDW Security. Do you really think that’s a good idea? Again, they have people who LOOK for people who are acting funny. Once we took our sunglasses off it’d be goodnight, sweetheart.

But anyway… these are things that are still getting hammered out. That’s why I just wanted to make sure we could do the whole Dose in morning / Dose in afternoon-evening thing and be cool.

put some visine in. eat at LEAST 3.5g in the morning. smoke a blunt or 2. go willll out with mickey mouse.

dont defecate in public and you should be fine.

Tolerance was not affected

I once took mushrooms in high school and paid a visit to Canada’s Wonderland, a huge amusement park just outside Toronto.

They served to make the big, “scary” rides a lot more fun, somehow, but the situation really deteriorated when we entered the former “Hanna Barbara Land” - now probably called “Time Warner-Viacom Designated Area of Moderate Enjoyment” or something equally corporate. Beloved childrens characters as “Bam-Bam” and “Dino” became unspeakably horrifying in our altered mental state, and a girl who was with us started screaming in hysterics on the usually benign “Ghoster Coaster”, thinking that it was in fact haunted. Her cries of “THIS TRACK IS GONNA GIVE OUT, THIS FUCKING THING IS HAUNTED, WE’RE ALL GONNA FUCKING DIE!!” didn’t impress park security, and we were escorted out by this stiff guy who looked and talked like a circa 1952 CIA agent. He had this neatly-parted jet black hair, and I kept trying to touch it while laughing in hysterics. This served to annoy him for some reason.

I’ll always remember his final words as he led us out the gate: “Kids, I don’t know what you’re on, but get off it!”.

In hindsight it was a pretty enjoyable day, but if I were a parent in my vacinity I’d probably punch me in the face. Have fun, but make sure you can handle your mushrooms and not act like a complete moron. Don’t fuck with any kids either…going to Disney is often a once-in-a-lifetime treat for a youngster and they wouldn’t want some protein-mixing shroomed-out freak ruining it for them.

I don’t think this would be a good idea, going to public places while on shrooms, since you will act funny and weird (and other people probably will notice) and you might get overwhelmed by a difficult situation (security etc…) On the other hand it might just go well if you don’t take too much and are sure you can control yourself and handle unexpected situations

I’ve never been to disneyland but it would be a good idea to know place where you can just go to relax all by yourselves if something has a bad influence on you and you need to have some time “off”

Tripping in disneyland is stupid.

Tripping in the mountains during fall foliage in peak coloration is spectacular though.

I don’t think you should do it. If a situation arises (losing your friend in the crowd, security, buckling your seatbelt on a rollercoaster) you could very well be too wacked out for proper decision making. That’s MHO and IME.

also rubbing/touching strangers is generally frowned upon, and asking for directions while fondling the material of the guide’s pants is a sure way to raise suspicions. I’d suggest getting ridiculously stoned. It’s easier to “fight through the high” if a bad situation arises. and seriously,
when’s the last time you had a bad trip smoking weed?

<—Wonders if some of the people giving advice in this thread have ever even used drugs.

Judging by the responses, they haven’t.

Wow. Okay, having had 100 or so great trips, and like 10 devil took over my fucking soul bad ones, I’d say sack up. If you want to trip, do it. If you’re worried about it, it might not go well. A lot of my bad ones came from WAY too high of doses (read: over 25 hits). Never had anything close to an unpleasant time with under an 1/8. Last time I did boomers, I had 1/2 oz of tea to start, then finished everyone else’s cups who couldn’t hang. Probably another 1/8 or two. Got nauseous for an hour in the middle, but other than that, good times. What the hell is 2.5g twice in a day going to do? Not much. If you freak out, your sitter will get you out. That’s what spinsitters are for. As long as they’re experienced, you should be fine.

And I second the rave scene. Hippieflip that shit. IE, shrooms + E. Either way, relax. I slapped a police officer once and went to the drunk tank for 4 hours. Let me go without a charge. And they asked me, “Are you still seeing stuff?” Right before they let me go. Other than a 10 mile walk back to my car, pretty funny and entertaining trip.

I agree that this is kind of a stupid idea. I would go to the woods, a music festival, rave or what not, where you are around a population supportive of this kind of behavior. Disneyland w/ kids and families doing the family thing seems like it would not be that great of time, plus waiting in line and all that crap would not be pleasant.

Walking around in the sun all day can exhaust people too, and after that first trip wears off I would be surprised if you could get the rest of them down or even want to.

Also what happens if you just want to sit on your ass, trip out, and close your eyes for a bit. I can see managing to keep it together for a show or whatnot, but not all day in front of families and staring eyes without drawing undue attention.

On the other hand, if you’re up for an adventure, buy the ticket take the ride, but personally I’d keep it a lower dose more frequently.

Whatever you do, get video.
