Recreational.....???

Rustlers Festivals are a must amongst South African alternative thinking, festival going folk.



Rustlers Festivals are a must amongst South African alternative thinking, festival going folk. This easter was the first time I attended a festival there.

My first experience with shrooms was +/- 4 years ago, when I ingested a small quantity & experienced something akin to a very mild acid trip - Dr. Hoffmann, Microdots, Speed, THC & various forms of MDMA/MDA pretty much summed up the rest of my pshyconautic explorations until a few months ago.

I found a new friend who introduced me to shrooms proper - I also started surfing a lot on the subject & a whole new world just opened up for me - To make a long story short, I went to this festival in order to make a voyage of shamanic self discovery - We left on the Thursday evening & after loads of beer I was safely ensconsed in the front seat of a Utility (mini-truck?) on a journey of +/- 4 hours & +/-350 km.

After about an hour of driving & drinking more beer I volunteered to test the acid that has been procured for the festival (kaleidoscopes)- I took one hit of blotter - this served only to sober me up & enabled me to drink more beer....weak shite indeed....

We arrived at our destination in the early hours of the morning & proceede to stumble around in the dark for quite a while until such time as a tent was pitched & everybody sort of passed out - me on the back of the truck....I was "gone" for +/- 1.5 hours max & then rose to witness the most beautiful sunrise I've ever seen.....

Do go to www.rustlers.co.za for more info about the setting.

I was still well thrashed & carried on drinking my Heinekens.....I had managed to procure 6g dried Equadorian & 4g dried Amazonian prior to commencing my journey & these were earmarked to be ingested with a new friend who was travelling in a seperate convoy - This was for the whole shamanic number....

The alcohol however was rapidly displacing the acid & long before short I found an open bar....& a shroom selling Rastafarian - who had some Psilocybe cubensis natalensis - the local brand - I prceeded to purchase +/- 10g dried of him & continued drinking.....

At +/- 10am, after starting to get really drunk & out of control (I am 6 foot 5 inches tall & weigh +/- 120 kg - mainly muscle, although I'm tending to go soft - at that time in any case - ....) I, after being unable to locate my friend to trip with me, foolishly ingested the 10g of local shrooms, reckoning it would help sober me up.....

After +/- 15 mins things got way out of hand - I was sitting on a raised platform to the side of the main stage dancefloor (along with my friends who I travelled down with), on which a chequered pattern is painted - the pattern
just started flowing - I then looked up and the mountains literally came flying at me !!!!!

Fractual mathematical equations - almost DNA like in appearance just flew right at me - accompanied by a sound akin to hitting a piano full force on as many keys as possible !!! I then realised the recreational dose was a bit excessive !!!!

My friends were also becoming very quiet & withdrawn (almost hostile ??) as the whole lot of them had taken shrooms for the first time - not as much as I did though...

I realised that they wouldn't make good companions for this journey & walked down with the one couple to the mini-truck
in order to get my jacket out - my last words to them was "I just need my jacket - I'll then leave you alone" - I could sense that they had private issues to sort out & I wasn't feeling welcome at all.....

The +/- 800m - 1000m walk was interesting to say the least - I couldn't look up due to the mass of information flying at my face & lookin down at the grass I could see a grid-like energy pattern with a bright glowing yellow dot in the centre of each one - each square being +/- 30cm X 30cm. Walking was really difficult......

I got my jacket & then set off up towards the Main floor & beyond - where my new "enlightened" friend was camping - SOMEWHERE - all the time seeing less grass / ground & more grid.....As a matter of interest - I walked past a black PVC sheathed power line that lay exposed above the earth several times & it was glowing bright purple....I later found it it actually carried electricity.

The shrooms were kicking in very hard now & I stumbled through the camping site struggling very hard to reign it in
& trying to locate my empathic friend in order to have a sitter so I could let go....I saw a lot of mushrooms growing everywhere & lots of elf / sprite - like people...it also seemed if the lights dimmed by about 2 shades - IN GLARING HIGH ALTITUDE SUNLIGHT !!! - everything seemed very magical....I JUST HAD TO FIGHT IT ALL THE TIME !!!!!

I had no luck in locating my friend & eventually ended up back at the mini-truck, sitting against the wheel & hoping fo some friends to come along - This being midday a lot of festival goers were arriving & setting up camp - I couldn't bear lookin at the mountains - they were taking on Mayan Temple / Sphinx like appearances & the fractuals were still coming at me....the clouds were just crazy as well....

Being extremely uncomfortable I focused on creating an energy bubble around our encampment so nobody would come & bother me - it was quite fun watching the nearest group of "clowns" trying to pitch an awning +/- 20m away from me - they were the nearest to my "bubble" & I could command gusts of wind to literally blow their efforts over - this focus served to ease my stress levels a bit - I eventually became bored with this & proceeded to the main stage area again (PS - when I returned that evening NOBODY had camped within a 20m radius of us - and the place was quite packed !!!)

I cannot possibly remember all the little magical moments & incidents that went on - THERE WERE JUST TOO MANY - Interactions with humans were just crazy - I could clearly see people for exactly what they were - without as much as interacting with them !!!! I don't need to tell you about how electrifying the simple act of urinating was, or about the kaleidoscopic visual patterns when in the semi-darkness of a reed outhouse with rays of sunlight filtering through the gaps.....

This must rate as the most momentous experience of my entire life - this cannot be duplicated soon after though & I've found a +/- 3 week window period is needed between journeys in order to maximise the effect.

I'll post more of my journeys later - I'm now growing my own & this could prove to be real interesting.....

Trip - but dont fall - BIG J
