Trip Report: Camping, Fire, and Coyotes
    #1662393 - 06/25/03 08:24 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I had about a quarter of shroom powder sitting in the freezer for over a year, and I had been thinking about dosing half of it sometime before June was over. Well, last night afforded what seemed to be the perfect opportunity. The weather was going to be clear and cool at night, perfect for a campfire and an evening of chilling.

I called up my friend, J, and we decided to make the trek to the back of my 80 acre woods where we had an excellent campsite already built. Around 5 oclock that evening, we gathered up our gear, some sandwhiches, water, and my sketchbook before heading out. The hike to the campsite was great, the woods were full of life and brilliant greenery. Once there, we built up a fire and set up our sleeping arrangements. J was sleeping on a cot while I had was using a hammock. When we got everything situated, I pulled out the mushroom powder. J decided that he would like to trip with me, so we split the 3.5 grams. I remembered this particular batch of shrooms being of high quality, so I wasn't worried about having too mild a trip. We put the powder on peanut butter sandwhiches and munched them down with water around 7.30.

I planned on keeping my sketchbook with me during the whole trip so I could record thoughts and draw what I was seeing. At 7.45 I wrote in my skethbook "First effects noticed. Vision is 'slower'." At 8.05 I wrote "Woods are breathing. The ground is wavelike." At 8.15 I simply wrote "Tripping. Sunset." And that was all I managed to get written down in the skethbook! Hehe, it always ends up that way.

By a quarter after 8 we were still riding the come-up. The visuals were amazing, as they always are in the woods, but I soon found that I was going to have a hard time overcoming an uneasy feeling that lurked beneath all my thoughts. I'm not really sure what it was, but I think it just boils down to the fact that I didn't meditate enough before this trip, my mind was too scattered, no focus. I was determined not to waste any of this trip, however, so I worked hard at calming myself down and not concentrating on negative and hopelessly complicated thoughts. Instead, I turned my attention to the fire.

J was searching for wood around our campsite, because we had already burned up most of what we had gathered earlier and we wanted to make a stockpile of wood before it got too dark. He mentioned that all the logs and wood seemed to be weaved into the ground, and he was unable to gather any of it. I laughed and went to check it out. Sure enough, when I bent down to get a log at my feet, it seemed as though it was attached to the ground somehow and I couldn't lift it up. We spent a good 10 minutes puzzling over this before we realized we were trying to pull a giant tree root out of the ground. When we did find some logs, it still wasn't very easy to get it back to the campsite. Trying to focus on gathering wood became a stressful chore. Everywhere I looked I was bombarded with hallucination. The uneasiness continued to grow in my mind at this point, and I was preparing myself for the anxiety attack that I felt was emminent.

After a while we gave up on gathering wood. We had a decent fire going and a bit of wood stockpiled so we decided to sit down a smoke a bowl. At this point I could feel that we were both struggling to ride the increasingly powerful waves of psychedelia. We sat down next to the fire on a blanket and began loading a couple pipes up with some herb. This proved to be extremely difficult, but it gave us both something positive to focus on. By the time we had finished the bowls, we were in fits of laughter and conversation.

The trip took a turn for the better at this point. After the weed, everything became much more vibrant and beautiful. I've found that weed with shrooms always produces what I call the "Rainbow-Pattern-Filter" hallucination. Its where there seems to be a transparent filter over my vision that it is made up of tiny, super-detailed rainbow patterns. The patterns are constantly shifting and changing. This has to be my favorite visual that comes with tripping because it is so easy for me to draw the designs I see. I just look at my sketchbook and literally trace what I see in the filter onto the paper.

The fire was especially beautiful. It seemed like the coals were made up of thousands of 'pixels' that were shimmering different colors. We poked at the fire for a while until we decided to go on a walk to an old cabin that was about half a mile away. We managed to make it to the cabin, but realizing it was getting pretty dark, we immediately started back. Navigating the woods became very difficult. The sun was down at this point, and we hadn't brought a flashlight. For some reason, it didn't seem like our shroom night vision was kicking in. We both just huddled together and took slow careful steps back towards our campsite. The uneasiness was returning in waves, getting stronger every time.

When we reached the camp, it was around 10.30 and I was feeling extremely exhausted. We decided to try lying down. I crawled into my hammock and tried to cover up with my blanket, but it wound up being ridiculously hard to do. If any of you have ever tripped in a hammock, you know how crazy they are. Well, after many minutes of fumbling around I managed to sloppily drape the blanket over me and halfway situate myself into a comfortable position. J found this whole ordeal very funny. I felt good that I was making him laugh, because I knew we were both on the edge of an uncomfortable comedown.

I lay in the hammock concentrating on some breathing techniques and staring at the trees above me. The leaves glowed because of the fire, and it was amazing looking. Despite my meditation, I was slowly losing myself to the depression and exhaustion of the comedown. Around 11.15 a big pack of coyotes started to bark and howl, about two ridges over from our campsite. Needless to say, this frightened both of us pretty good. J hadn't been camping around coyotes much before, so he thought they would for sure come and attack us, but I reassured him that they wouldn't bother us. Still, howling and barking in the middle of the night while you're coming down from shrooms in the woods is generally not a good thing.

At midnight, I got up and built the fire back up as big as I could get it and then climbed into my hammock for the night. We lay in our beds for two hours, talking about the trip and other things, until we both drifted into sleep.

Morning came quickly it seemed, and I felt completely refreshed and good, like I always do after a trip.

Thinking back on the trip, I realize that I didn't plan it as well as I have before, and I definitely didn't spend enough time readying myself mentally. On the whole however, it was a good trip, with many lessons learned and many ideals reinforced. I'm glad now that I split the 3.5 grams with J, otherwise I might have had a harder time coping with the anxiety I experienced during the trip.

One thing that kind of bothered me while I was laying in my hammock was a strange vibration in my jaw. I've felt this during the last 3 trips I've had, and it isn't pleasant at all. Basically my jaw vibrates really fast, like my teeth were chattering. It lasts for 10 or 15 minutes at a time and really unnerves me. Have any of you had any simliar experiences with your jaw vibrating?

Anyway, that was my trip. Peace.

yeah, chunder i know exactly what you mean. It seems to embody the anxiety or the edge that you have coming up and coming down. comes with strong trips in my experience, and I either notice it and realize i have no idea how long i've been doing it, or i'm fully conscious of it and truely annoyed.

This, along with 2 other qualities are my least favorite commonalities in tripping (besides just a bad trip). the other 2 are-sometimes i feel like i pissed my pants, but of course i never did. the other-the feeling when you come down that something is not right. that you don't fit in the reality you come back to.
One trip afterwards on the comedown i kept repeating to my friends "was I an asshole? wait nevermind... did I do something retarded?... Am I acting right, or how should I be acting??"

BTW GREAT trip report Chunder. Where was this forest? I assume in the SW cuz of the coyotes...

The forest I tripped in was in Northeastern AZ.

The forest was in middle Tennessee.

I also get the pissed-my-pants feeling. I often get a very 'wet' feeling while I'm tripping, like my whole body is moist and wet. Thanks for the comments dudes! Peace.

Great report, thanks. Good move on setting up your sleeping arrangements before dosing, I'll never make that mistake again. Do you have a digicam/scanner? I'd love to see the rainbow pattern filters you drew, I've had that same effect but haven't been able to capture it.

I've gotten the pissed pants feeling before, It's never happened but it's a fear of mine. Best way for me to avoid it is to piss regularly.
Haha, the logs are woven into the ground, that's hilarious.

Yeah, I had that "wet" feeling as well!

My first ever trip was the other night on 2.3g dry. It was really good if somewhat confusing at times.

As for strange effects I occasionally had the feeling (around my peak) of being "squashed" and then "expanded" again. This happened in an instant and was accompanied by a strange "buzzing" noise that changed in pitch. It was very odd, but quite pleasant. Anyone had anything similar?

No, Last night I dosed and I only felt squished when like 5 of us sat on a bench that is meant for 3 people, =/
Great trip report btw. I can't wait untill I retire, I have a huge 164 acre farm to retire to, 80 acres or more is still all forest, would be great to trip there. It's in farm country too, so it's good for star gazing =)
Also I'd have like a shotgun so if anything scared me I could kill it....

Well, as long as there's talk of unpleasant trip feelings, Ive had the "pissed my pants feeling" (I didnt, thankfully) and, i dont know about anyone else, maybe its a long hair thing, but I've had the feeling a good chunck of my hair has been burned off. when I grab fo rthe hair that's supposedly burned off, its still there, but it seems...Rusty, and the equates to being burned. wierd stuff.

It's just the drug playing with your brain.  My one buddy, after ingesting a quarter ounce (7 grams) felt like he had 5 seperate shoulder blades on his back that kept moving around on him.  :smile:

I would always take an immodium AD the morning of the day I planned a trip and would always make myself "go" right after I dosed to ensure I was "on empty" in both senses of the word and never had problems.  The drugs just make you more sensitive to all sensory input...thus your bowels or bladder just doing "their normal thing" makes you feel like you're about to burst.  :smile:

I always wanted to get a t-shirt made to wear at tripping parties that read "Remember, fire is always real."  :smile:  I think that sums it up best.  :smile:

Love & Light,

Boppity

>>Have any of you had any simliar experiences with your jaw vibrating?

Tryptamines are stimulants and I have had jaw clenching on both LSD and shrooms...just very light like your experience.  It's normal...don't freak out if it happens again.  :smile:
