spiritual finding
    #4488608 - 08/03/05 05:27 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

well today all of a sudden i got the strongest urge i have had for a very long time.

I live maybe 10 miles away from a mountain range, and then on the other side of it is miles of high desert.

I was thinking of walking from my house, to the mountains, over the mountains to the desert and pass thru the desert to what ever comes next. just out in the wilderness, me, some water and food, and some mushrooms.

I want to find my self, and come up with my own ideas on life. Not something that i have read or been told, i want to be able to cut my self (mostly) from the outside world for a while, take a journey and think about my life, and about my self.

of course i will need help, so i was thinking of only bringing a sleeping bag, some clothes that will stay durable for a while (leather, with boots [maybe mocs]). Water, some anti-venom (just in case) and food.

I was thinking of only bringing my self, and keeping a journal, and just take a long long trip.



I dont know why, but i really want to do this. I really want to find out about my self, and i guess "become a man".

some Indians did this as a sort of passage or what ever (or at least i think they did). I think it will help me find my self, and have a greater appreciation of my life....




I understand that it could be dangerous, as there can be the heat, cold, and wild animals, but i am sure i can be safe, and bring a knife or something along with me as a sort of protection.



anyhow, i really really want to do this, like really bad...


dont really know why i am posting this, or even telling you guys, but you are welcome to post your input if you like.


please no trolling, if you want to say something like "thats stupid" or what ever, please keep it to your self....

I understand the urge that drives you to do this, I get it myself.

How long would the journey take you on foot? I'd figure that out first so that you can plan appropriately.

well im sure i can get to the base of the mountain by day 1 , and maybe even start my way up it. But i dont think i want to give my self a set ammount of days per say. Maybe a time frame, but I want to be able to stay out as long as is needed... i think that is wishful thinking on my part tho...

Yeah, you do NOT want to run out of supplies in the middle of nowhere.

I'd say bring as many supplies (foodstuffs, water, etc) as you can stand to carry. When you're halfway done with the supplies, you'll know you have to turn back.

I was thinking of only bringing my self...

I highly recommend leaving your self behind.

Chaos, I have taken this kind of journey many times, with and without psychedelics. You will look back on this, IMO, as some of the best time you spend on this planet.  I most highly recommend the solo mushroom journey, using the committed dose.  ( If you are new to this a smaller dose might be advisable. Nothing wrong with getting your feet wet slowly). These experiences are what I draw from when my day to day gets tough or feeling empty and boring. Whenever I lose my bearings.

I have spent weeks alone in high desert back country without seeing another human. It is truly a challenging experience to be left alone with oneself. It is also very liberating and can help you  in many ways.

There is always risk in life. This makes your journey real.  The risks are minimal compared to rush hour traffic, IF you are prepared. You may make them huge in your mind because it is the unknown. That is part of the lessons for growth. To take on new territory in your heart and head. Good luck. I hope you will report something back if sharing is your gig.  :heart: :mushroom2:

[argh, to original poster, of course]
Great, I adore you. I haven't done something like this, and I feel I miss it. Now, the possibilities for me get smaller and smaller for such.
So, yea, do it ! And I wish you good luck. Perhaps plan your route, so that you can fill your watersupplies from time to time ? I think that would be the most important thing.

I just spent a little less than a week in George Washington National Forest. Absorbing nature rules. Bring potatoes, precooked meat, and tin foil. How are your foraging skills? A light backpack can hold 3 days or so of food and water. Dont sleep next to water. Dont forget the sunscreen?

If your equipment is good and you are sincerely looking for something, everything is going to be more than good.
You will find something meaningful to you.
