Anyone ever tripped in Las Vegas?
    #2749579 - 05/31/04 12:29 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Greetings,

I'm a newly registered member but have been reading the vast resources this site has to offer for several months. I figured it was time to formally join up and begin participating in the community. I've got a few trips under my belt but would hardly call myself "experienced."

I was wondering if anyone had taken the plunge while in Las Vegas. I've never tripped anywhere but in controlled environments such as my home, but was thinking of stepping out, as it were, when I visit Nevada in July. There certainly exists the potential for bad vibes, be it from the people there, the gambling establishment and the sight of many folks losing money they can't afford to part with, or a host of other sources.

Some may even think Las Vegas is more of an acid town than a shroom town. I don't know. I just thought I'd throw the question out there to see if anyone has ever tripped there before, and if so, find out what happened and if you'd have any recommendations.

Thanks,

RD

"Las Vegas is not a good town for psychadelic drugs"
- Hunter S. Thompson

I think Las Vegas is a alcohol-coke-town; where you want to lose reality (and a lot of cash), but not be bothered by it.

Psychadelic drugs might show you the plain stupidity of people losing their money on a machine and then be angry about it.
Don't get me wrong, I like to gamble too; but I sure as hell wouldn't waste spiritual substances on a town full of money-freaks.

Concerning set and setting, you set the setting on "hell"... :wink:

I'd start out on my safe place(hotel room, friends house) and wait for the mushrooms to peak. Then I'd decide if I could bear the strange city. I know I'd either have a great trip in vegas, running around laughing at the sheer lunacy of the whole city, or have a terrible trip, sitting in a corner trying to fight the capatilistic machine from taking over my body. This certainly wouldn't be a place for a high dose though, I'd stick in the range of 1.5-3 grams.

I want to make a shroom pilgrimage to Fremont Street . It was awesome while stone cold sober and I kept saying to myself and my wife, "I gotta' come here and shroom."

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I think you're right on the money, and to be sure, there will be plenty of other options for me to choose from while I'm there. Your quote of Thompson is particularly prescient in the sense that his adventures, to an extent, serve as the inspiration for many of my journeys; as such, I am familiar with the potential for things to go very, very wrong, particularly in an environment such as Las Vegas.

That's good advice. Your dosage suggestion was exactly what I had in mind. We'll stick to that and see if we can handle things progressively, starting with the room, to the elevator, to the casino floor, to Freemont Street, and so on.

Your remarks regarding the potential for either a great trip or a terrible trip are also appreciated. I figured that would be the case, but considering the people I'm going with (longtime friends), what the vacation represents (a much-needed getaway from more than a year of work with no break), and everything else, I can [only] hope that my trip goes well.

I can't say that I disagree with you here. That's why I mentioned that many might say Las Vegas is more of an acid town that it is a shrooming town; after all, there really isn't anything natural about that city, carved out of the nothingness of the desert and adorned with millions of flourescent lights, silicon breasts, and paper money.

I guess I'll give my 2 cents considering everytime i trip it's in las vegas. I went up to the strip once, and I'll most likely never do it again on shrooms. There are just too many people and they're all acting like idiots, it was too much for me to handle, I just wanted to hide. This was around 1-2am on a wednesday night, so about as dead as the strip gets while there still being things to actually see. I'd really like to see the water show at the Bellagio messed up, but that ends at midnight and there are usually tons of people there. I might try it again this winter when most people think it's too cold to walk at night, then it might be a bit more enjoyable, but during prime tourist season, I would avoid the strip.
Now fremont on the other hand I think could be pretty cool, since you don't really have to deal with cars trying to kill you where ever you walk. It's alot easier to go unnoticed on fremont, but there are more crackheads and bums up there. Just make sure you don't go up there on the weekends, or any night there is something big going on, it gets packed with people, so unless your comfortable with a lot of people being around you try to stick to weekday.
Well that's just my insight into this town, I would suggest going to Red Rock, The Valley of Fire, or the Hoover Dam area on shrooms before the strip, eventho that's a bit of a drive.

I loved tripping in Vegas. All three nights at Phish. Nothing quite like having your soul ravished by the sound of Phish and then walking down the strip. . .drinking virtually free. . .sitting at different blackjack tables, etc. Probably is an endeavor for the more experienced tripper.

Vegas is honestly tripped, i wouldn't want to have my trip in the casino but the streets would sure as hell make it an experience and a half!

How does tripping on a tropical island go?

my first trip ever was on the strip in vegas. i ate about 7 grams (my mistake) and wandered on the strip for a few hours. it was fine until i was peaking, then it got a little strange. the fremont was the best part of the whole trip, looking up at all the pretty lights....dolphins swimming by, fighter jets flying by, girls dancing....oh, and then what ever the lights were doing :grin:
it was fucking cool :grin:

Definately seems like an acid town... a cool acid town at that. Mushrooms? Nah, dont think so. Though if I were there and had some I probably would try it out like someone said, eat a nice mild dose in the room and see where it will take me.

Care to elaborate? sounds like an interesting story

Acid could be enjoyable in Vegas, that I can see. Mushrooms however I don't think I would ever do there though. ....well maybe if the situation was agreeable. and _not_ 7 grams  :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

Funny you should make the suggestion. I have in my possession a number of dried San Pedro buttons that I'd like to bring along as well. I have no experience with cacti, however, so I'm not sure if they can be ingested, and if so, how much would be a reasonable amount. The outer skin has been removed, but they're still hard as a rock. I think one would have to swallow whole.

Thanks to everyone else for the enthusiastic replies. I, too, would like to read the story of the seven grams on the Strip...
