NE Gathering Trip Report
    #4324431 - 06/22/05 01:01 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Although I've been following alt.drugs/rec.drugs for over a decade and have spottily participated in various related web boards, I am most active on The Nook, which has evolved into www.thenook.info. We were recently lent space on the Shroomery's irc server, which has allowed our communities to come closer together. In that spirit, I was kindly invited to the NE Gathering by ifallapart and suffer.

The site is amazing, a former gravel pit replete with rural campsites, trees (including a remarkable number of sassafrass), wild berries of various kinds, and, most importantly, hippies and their freer outlook on life.

I arrived at around noon on Friday. I was slightly nervous at meeting so many new people, but it wasn't too bad as I've been meeting random people online for ten years now. Everybody was interesting. The crowd was diverse and did not fit neatly into stereotypes. I guess one thing you could say is that most people were in their early 20's. I am 30 but could pass for 25.

Friday was preparation day. I didn't want to get into things too heavily so I took it easy and took half a roll. I focused on meeting people and enjoyed the company and the various campfires.

On Saturday, we all took it up a notch. I took half a roll and one hit of blotter. We had an amazing trip in our little area by my tents. One of our group had a bit too much of an intense trip after a balloon of nitrous and we gave him a helping hand. Helping people with challenging trips is something I'm used to with my ex-girlfriend and one or two experiences with AMT. The live DJ and digeridoo playing perfectly complemented the trip. More than a few balloons help blast me off into the ionosphere.

On Sunday I made salsa provolone garlic chicken sandwiches on onion buns. I think everybody approved. I enjoyed dipping my toes in the lake and watching the fish attempt to take a nibble. In the early afternoon, it was time to take two generous hits from an older Bonnaroo hippie's "private stash." It was the perfect complement to travel Scrabble. Everyone played defensively, and the board was locked solid. On the other hand, I give strong bonus points to the drug words that were played. Nobody had a calculator, so I scored the game in my head. Tripping balls, all scores were approximate. adrug was the winner.

Later that night, there was a bit of debauchery in a tent. I added a roll from Bonnaroo that had proved to be effective. There were numerous balloons and massages, and a general good time was had by all. We all kicked things up ten notches, and by the end of it, I was feeling a bit cracked out. But in a good way! By this time, the Shroomery easily surpassed 1000 balloons and trashed every cracker present. A pretty blonde local showed up towards the end of our time in the tent and she offered to sell us some cheap t-shirts the next day.

On Monday we tried to cook up the remainder of the food. My sirloin burgers didn't come out right because some bits of charcoal got on the burgers. They were at least filling if you could get by the crunchiness. I helped people wrap things up and most people got on their way. The girl came by selling t-shirts and I picked up three nice tie dies for $5 each. I also got a nice necklace to match my Nook t-shirt for a buck.

I left at about 7:30 pm. I didn't get home until about 3 am because I slept in virtually every rest area I came across. When I finally did arrive home I slept for the next 15 hours. Getting close to 24 hours after that point, I'm feeling close to baseline. Looking forward to lots of programming work to get caught up with life, but it was worth it.

Glad to hear you had a great time!
I really enjoyed meeting you, and I hope you come out to the next big thing.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

John = rock.

I will own up to being the one who couldn't handle nitrous on top of my acid... I felt that I could handle it mentally, but there was a definite physical overload that I could not shake no matter how much I focused on freeing myself from tension.

It basically turned into a panic attack... which is not a bad thing, because it was a vivid reminder of my own mortality... and I generally welcome such experiences.

But anyway... John here is definitely the man.

I felt such empathy and love from people I'd only known for half a day. Un-fucking-believable.

Motherfuckers even escorted me to the bathrooms and back in my fragile shock-induced state. Much love.  :grin: :heart:

Nook John is AWESOME!!  He has such a wealth of knowledge about entheogens of all kinds.  I remember him filling my mushed-up head with lots of mescaline arcana.  :grin:  We sat around the fire and talked for hours.  :smile:

(and I inhaled your burgers with the ravenous enthusiasm of a true carnivore...don't be modest, they were delicious!  :thumbup: )
