thats ultimatly up to the individual person but for me hell no. i get paranoid in public (to many run in with the piggies). but some people enjoy it. outside is fun though. personally i would suggest the woods or the back yard, just me though. but if you get paranoid easily then stay away from public cause thats all you need is paranoia to trigger a bad trip.

i live in small town, usa. the town is totally dead after 10 pm, minus a few cars and one cop that doesnt even roll by my house. i go outside and walk around town with no onw around but me. it is the ultimate trip cause if ur at lvl 3 to 5 you see people that arent there..... if you can you shjould try it. i can imagine that tripping around a lot of people can be scary.

I agree. Unless you're a person who is totally relaxed all the time around people, and you are completely unself-conscious or not sensitive at all, then you shouldn't trip in public as a general rule. Part of the fun of the trip sometimes is sharing the experience with others, and you're going to have to keep your trap shut (except for your friends) if you don't want to embarrass yourself.

It also depends on what kind of public situation we're talking about, obviously.

I can be tripping around people, but if I'm tripping around a large concentration of people, especially where there is lots of talking, I can't handle it.

It has gotten to the point where I couldn't hear anything but all the voices, as if they were filling my head.

I've tripped at concerts, in Central Park, in NYC in several parks. Best to stay away from roads, just in case. But it is fun... some people aren't made for it... but it is worth trying at a low dose, if you feel you can be private in public.

Trip smart. Trip safe. Do not trip in public unless you understand the risks. You can get in an accident, and in many parts of the world, you could get arrested.

depends the definition of public. if its a gathering, no problem for me generally, as i choice the places to o carefully. but by public if you mean places like shopping malls and places like that, I say stay out.

i live in a residential neighborhood, and whenever i trip (2-4 times per month) it is usually early evening, and i end up wandering outside for quite a while. my neighbors just think i am happy all the time cause whenever they see me i'm strolling along, taking my sweet ass time, smiling at the trees and flowers. it's especially great in the summer when all the kids sell lemonade for a quarter, that kicks ass. i get along great with everyone and have never had a bad experience here. so public for me is a great time, my favorite. i also like concerts and festivals on mushrooms..but places like business districts or anywhere with a lot of human and vehicle traffic is out of the question.

The most obnoxious publice place I have tripped in was an Atlantic City casino, this I would not advise to anyone who doesn't consider themselves a seasoned vet. The other tripper with me lost it and couldnt take the lights and the noise. I had to find the boardwalk with him which was quite a task, damn mazes inside those casinos :wink:, so I guess I would say tripping in public is fine. Start with a low dose, and know yourself.

Only if you a very familiar with the substance. We used to take lsd at Kings Island. It was usualyl a blast, we would try and go on days they would be dead and we could walk on all the rides. A rollercoast with a head full of lsd is amazing. Especially the beast best coaster in the states.


BUT, i would not recommend this unless you have tripped a decent amount, know what to epect(if thats even possible) and not take an extreme amount. We used to get low quality white blotter, and we cold easily take 2-3 and be ok. Of course we would be a little wild, but nothing that ever drew attention.

One time tho my friend passed out on shrooms at kings island and it was terrible, it was a dumb ass move on our part because he had not tripped a whole lot but we where fine. It was hot out just told them he overheated.

I tripped with lots of people around only once. I thought it was going to be horrible, but really it wasnt that bad.
      Me and 2 of my friends decided to go to the zoo on shrooms(excellent idea), though every other time I've tripped there, it was during the winter when it was completely empty. This time it was flooded with people, we walked around and did our thing as normal, but when it got too crowded around me and I didnt have room to take a step, I got extremely mad. :enraged: It made me hate people,well the majority of them, for months. I've slowly built up a good tolerance to them tho.  :smirk:

been there and done that a few times...
got tossed out one time (caught us burning a doob in timberwolf) when i was 16 that sucked but we were tripping so it was kinda funny :tongue2:

was tripping at the omni-max in vegas once.
after the movie we were walking around tripping on all the lights in the casino and security was all over us every where we turned... just staring and following...all the "man! i'm tripping my balls off" probably didn't help much.
once we got out of caesar's and on to the strip(the sun was just setting)everything was a lot better :smile:

A little tip I'll throw out: Take a benzo, if you don't mind taking pills. common Benzo's are xanax, klonapin, vallium.

Side note. I have pretty bad genral anixty disorder and the ego loss on mushies can be devistating to me sometimes this is where learned that taking a xanax or two with my mushies was a great way to let the mushies take me where they wanted and not where my overactive mind forced them to take me. Sorry if that sounds a little confusing but benzos really work for the anxiety and the ego loss of a trip.

In London, there are clubs that sell shrooms when you're in there. A friend of mine did a shit load one day and basically woke up in an ambulance wondering what the fuck was going on. He thought his trip was just to experience what it is like to be (in his words) "one of those idiots you see that get thrown in the gutter then end up in hospital" It wasn't till morning that he realised what had happened. The idea of doiong shrooms in the presence of more than 1 or 2 other people terrifies me, and even then they have to be REALLY good friends. So in my view, no, tripping in public isn't a good idea. I'm sure others can enjoy it though!

As long as you remember that people dont know your on shrooms its cool. Ive went bowling, to concerts, theme parks, malls etc. I dont see the big deal. The last thing those people are thinking is "I bet that dude is trippin balls". Is all a state of mind. I live for those paranoid, tripped out, obscene feelings. just my 2?

I went to Canadas Wonderland on 4 grams, and it just so happened to be the busiest time of the year. I didnt know what to do I just wanted to sit on a bench. Even going to the bathroom was scary. But I forced myself to have a good time and the only thing that pissed me off was waiting in line. I though everyone was looking at me. The rides were pretty fun, but while everyone was screaming i was like well im strapped in so what could possibly happen. The rides werent entertaining at all but oh well it was a fun time.

tripped in big cities, little cities, crowds of 100,000+, it's great to see lots of people and interact with them to any degree you want.
I've found no ones going to mess with you unless your hurting yourself, or hurting some one else.
i will never forget about ten years ago trippin our faces off, in downtown Chicago.
we got to go up in the John Hancock building, to the 90th something floor, nothing could have been cooler looking than Chicago at night, from the 90th floor of a building.
ooo. except Vegas from the top of the Stratosphere, it's a toss up.
but some people i know should not go outside at all when they are trippin hard!! and they usually know that and won't .

i think a rule of thumb is, if you need a sitter in public you probably shouldnt go because you never know what can happen should the sitter dissapeaer.

I would say that it depends on what stage you're in, and how confident you are in your surroundings. The other day around 3:30 I consumed some Psilocybe semilanceata and after awhile I became fairly inebriated and dissappeared into some other world. So I went into my rooms and laid down and that was around 4:50 give or take a little. I never really went to sleep, I was just well, off in another place for the time being. I finally got up and realized that I was no longer feeling as inebriated and went out to greet the world. My I noticed that it was now around 6:40-7:00 PM. My roomate asked me if I wanted to go to subway. Basicaly at this point in time I was still under the influence but it was just the visuals as in the little worm like tentacles moving around, dissolving, and reappearing on our kitchen floor. I felt much better than ealier and was rather enjoying this. So I decided it'd all be cool and didn't have any problems out in public at all. Of course things were still a little off on occasion but it was nothing serious. I laughed my ass off, and I still havn't gone back to get it......  :blush: :crazy2:
