My girlfriend, myself and my best friend had for some time been planning a mushroom trip in our favourite area of woodland. It had been 7 years since my last trip in my early twenties. After a full breakfast we took the dried shrooms, 1.5g each crushed up with a shot of tequila. Onset was slow because of our full stomachs and began with everything that was said sounding funny and making us all laugh. This was accompanied by a heavy stoned feeling and the music beginning to sound 'enhanced'. When stepping out of our truck into the woods the light took on an ethereal quality with all the greenery and trees looking somehow different. We walked to a picnic spot and sat on a table which made a series of creaking noises that sounded connected, almost wierdly musical. This made my girlfriend laugh and I felt that I knew exactly the strange experience she was having, remembering the wierdness of my previous trips years ago. We sat in stoned silence or talking and laughing excitedly, at one point the conversation going in a repetetive loop. Couldnt tell if I was cold or just imagining it and kept thinking I needed to piss, or did I? Felt very wierd and stoned one minute then straight the next for a while. My friend made a small fire and we enjoyed the warmth and glow. Felt very connected and close to them both and this beautiful piece of woodland. Later walked to a spot with views over the valley and had a sensation of merging with the soil I lay on, becoming part of the hillside and view. A mellow reintroduction to shrooms... will have a stronger one next time.
