Rainbow Gathering...
    #5334167 - 02/24/06 08:17 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

I met this guy last summer at my old apartment building who was pretty cool and liked to puff dank*...anyways he would tell me story after story about his journey out on the U.S. Roadways as a backpacker. The most interesting stories he had were all from past Rainbow Gatherings. He would explain how massive amounts of people are joined as one and how they help one another and treated everyone with respect. Another interesting aspect he explained was that there was really no need for money. He said trades are more common at the gatherings, as money just reminds us of the negative financial boundaries that usually occur in our everyday lives. Instead of money being used to purchase "goods" at these gatherings, trades are taken instead.

The stories my buddy told me were just so "unreal", I have decided to experience one myself. Luckily, this year (2006) the Rainbow Gathering will be in Colorado! woohoo! So not too much traveling for me. lol. I just wanted to know if anyone else knows about the gatherings and if so, how was our experience? I was thinking of establishing a "shroomery" circle at the gathering, but they don't allow "chemicals" or "hard drugs" at the gatherings. IMO shroomies are not a "hard drug" and they aren't just "chemicals"(in a way I guess). feedback?

Maybe not, in the long run, but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant."

I've been interested in checking out a Rainbow Gathering ever since a really nice guy with an accent I could never place told me all about a few he went to at a festival up here in Alaska last August.

(Err, that is he told me at the festival about him going... meh I'm tired)

At the Rainbow Gathering do what you want, don't thread on other peoples shit.

If you want to smoke some blow do it in the privacy of your tent. They don't allow drinking some places ie main fire, etc. Shrooms and LSD are present on the same level as a Hersheys bar. They take care of there people too tripped out or with cut feet etc.

I'll probably camp out a few days, I'm not a whole weeker. Be ready to experience some of the most far out people you have ever met. Remember this is a counter-culture gathering.

I would type "rainbow gathering story" into google or something and read for a while.

That's bullshit. You aren't supposed to bring anything like that, but LSD is always there in full force and is usually supplied by "family", more often than not it comes from the Silver Family. They always have the best, but imitators are everywhere! Colorado would be a great place to go to your first gathering! As opposed to Ocala, Florida, where it's shady and very unfamily like. When is the gathering, this year?

Yeah if they said bring dope. The DEA would shut down the place - just like a RAVE.

They mean, we're going to say don't bring dope, but you hide it really well and bring it share it, and then no one says anything else about it when you get there.

I would not plan on selling anything.

I have a feeling that they don't consider LSD a "hard drug". Yeah, I'd love to go to one of these one day. It's good to hear that they still have them.

I don't believe they've announced the date yet.

But I live in Denver as well and might attend, depends on school and other things. There's a few other Colorado shroomerites that I'm sure are planning on going.

I plan on attending this year.

I went to cali04 in the modoc national forest, and it was a blast. While it wasn't all love and light, most everyone I met was pretty nice, and I saw a minimum of shady shit go down. Food was plentiful, and even though I came in with about two weeks worth of food for myself, (just in case) I ended up donating it all due to the fact good food is so obtainable all day/night.

As for shrooms and acid, while I didn't see a whole lot of the latter, both were present, and traded and consumed out in the open. I only partook a mild dose of shroom one night there, (from my own stash) and shared or traded the rest. Mostly I just wandered around day and night, and chatted with different people on a myriad of subjects.

Overall the vibe was good, especially as one travels furthur away from the parking lot, as that is where it seemed most of the shadiness and excessive drug and alcohol use went down. I will say one should watch their shit to some degree wherever you are though, as there were plenty of thieves and scammers all over.

The National Gathering is always the week surrounding the 4th of July
I also attended '04 in California and had a good time..... As has been said there are shady folks.... but there are also a lot of very good people.....
Lucky for us Colorado kids the gathering is nice and close this year.... I really have no excuse not to go..... unless Cheese does the 4th at Red Rocks

I'm planning to go for at least a couple days. It'll depend on where they decide to have it as to how long I hang around. PLus, that'll give me a chance to go visit my dad in Aurora. Haven't seen him in quite a while.

Well it seems that there are more ppl interested in the gatherings than I first thought. I thought I would have to bump this thread to get a response...lol. If anyone here at the Shroomery will be attending this year's gathering in Colorado please PM me. I would like to coordinate a Shroomery circle at the Rainbow Gathering. It'll be cool, so let me know, not sure exactly about details.

My sister has been going to these for years. She's a big time hippie and her husband is on one of the family councils or something. She's been trying to drag me along for years, but I'm a punk, not a hippie, so I wasn't sure how I'd be received. :wink:

I'm sure you'd be received just fine, as there is a large gutterpunk representation from what I have seen. Those dudes must do a lot of spangin' to afford them fancy boots they all have.

I was thinking about going this year. Bus tickets are cheap, I haven't seen my sister in forever, and I'd get to spend an entire week totally out of my head.

I doubt you'll regret it.

The gathering is a great way to spend a few weeks well fed in the forest. I'm hoping to do like a month out there this year, and maybe a little more in the surrounding area. Man, I'm getting pumped already!!!!
