I was down in Victoria last week at the snowfields
(Mt Hotham), on the way down in the car we stopped at a place south of the border where there is a huge pine plantation. We stopped off to get some lunch so I decided to abandon my family|friends to have my car trip smoke. I headed streaight for the forest and found my self in an unusually dark eery European woodland. So I sat on a stump and stacked up me pipe, hat a few tokes and then to my suprise I found my first Amanitas growing 4 m away from where I was sitting, they werer huge about the size of a cd, red whith white warts that rubbed off the cap.
I picked one up smelt it for experience and tossed it away cause me parents know I trip on mushies and shit and they wouldnt want to be embarrassed coase we were travelling with a straight, clean person. I wasnt sure on dosage and they are too hard to hide so I didnt bother.

Great story, Aussieshroomhead. I've been in a few predicaments like that in the past. My step-father is a lawyer and also high in the State Polital Click, if you know what I mean. When the family has friends over, even though I don't live with them nor spend much time with them, I still feel the need to respect them to the point that I don't mention any drug-use, etc. and do my best to speak perfect English w/out the Southern accent, etc. I dunno, it's like putting on an act so that no one would slander my step-dad with the fact that his step-son is a druggie, uneducated, moronic white trash individual. Why do I do it?
Also, if you bake the Amanita muscaria in the oven, with the door 1/3 opened for X(depends on you)amount of time, you can take a spoon and scoop up the juice and then pour it back on the mushroom(s) several times. If you like, you can, at any time, take a cooled spoonful of that juice and take it down. It's not bad, from what I understand. Or, you could then eat the cooked mushroom. Be careful on the size, etc.
This is only what I have read, but I've read similar recipes, etc. many times. So, I thought I'd share the info.
I have yet to find Amanita muscaria. I think I found one specimen of Amanita muscaria var. formosa(in the PNW nevertheless) but it was kinda shriveled up and quite old.
Amanita pantherina AKA Panther Cap is a mushroom I frequently encounter here, though, in the spring. It contains the same entheogenic alkaloids that are found in Amanita muscaria and " var. formosa. Although, I have read that A. pantherina contains larger amounts of the alkaloids.
I'm kinda skeptical on any "fun" use of these mushrooms, though. I'm thinking that it would depend on the person, the mushroom at hand, and the preparation.
If someone dedicated to preparing the Amanitas invited me over to enjoy an experience, I might feel a comfort and initial placebo. I would be able to lay my thoughts aside and go with the flow.
I'm rambling, cause I too am interested in a nice A. experience.
Please, bear with me!
Stay cool!-Levi7.
