I saw 372 Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band shows between '85 and '95.

Need I say more?

That stuff and giggly trips is probably more for young persons lacking
of any major responsibilities in life. Add responsibility with older age
and it's probably always a bad trip

Yeah, no sh#t, dude!

We're reflecting here. PAST TENSE!!!! WHAT WE USED TO DO!@!!!

Pate- I've heard it said that if you can remember the shows, then you probably weren't there...

Edit- probably should've put a smiley emoticon at the end of the sentence. Just messin' with you. ; )

I would also preface any of my acid stories with a disclaimer similar to that of Bluey.

One of my favorite things to do was first, find some good clean acid. It makes all the difference in the world. Deadheads usually had the cleanest stuff. Then, on a moonless night, I would drive solo up to Castle Rock. In those days the park was closed at night but you could still park legally at the gate south of the main parking lot. The pitch blackness was awesome when tripping, and I knew of several caves that would resonate with the human voice, but that's not the real fun. Sooner or later, the rangers would see my vehicle and go up to Castle to check it out. I would grab a handful of rocks and climb up to the top and wait. The rangers would come up with lights and bullhorns looking for someone. At the top of Castle, if you lay down they can't see you from the bottom. Very quietly I would toss off the pebbles to various locations around the rock and sit and try not to laugh too hard. I did that about three times before all the signage for illegal overnight parking went up. Good times.

My wife and I schroomed hard at the Pimps and Hoes party at Taos Ski Valley back in 2003 or so. We just stood there amongst all the partiers tripping on the music, costumes, pictures on the walls.... There were two identical pictures on opposite corners of the room of a man in a derby hat holding a gun. Anywhere I was in the room the guy was pointing his gun at me......

Man, those things taste awefull!

I have never used any enhancers because I find the world wonderfully interesting as it is. Every moment is an adventure. I want to be there to see it.

In the 60's and 70's to my knowledge none of my climbing friends were into it either. Definitely not seriously. One climber who was just really enjoyable to be around had tried acid for a time but had quit cold. He said the stuff is bad. He said using it started to do damage.

I have not followed this field over the years. But it increasingly appears he may have been right.

I'm a walking encyclopedia..... ask me for any set list and I'll regurgitate it for you.

I managed to keep all but about 15 of my stubs too, I posted a bunch of classics on the DeadHead thread.

Some people became experts at keeping their sh#t together.

Was given mushrooms before a ski marathon...i thought they were rancid dried pineapples and devoured them trying to get a quick snack before the race....had a 101 body temp....part way thru the race i began laughing uncontrolably and couldn't continue....I stopped next to this guy named Dennis Miller whom i was suddenly on the same wavelength with....the next day i was healed and went bouldering and was trying to make the last move to the top of a moderate problem and every time i'd start to step up , a raven would dive bomb me....the bird finally landed nearby and watched me as i quickly escaped...never again.....! rj

Back in '78 or so, my brother and I dropped some purple microdot. We had started playing backgammon that year pretty seriously with some other loser friends. I was checking out backgammon books from the city library that had not been checked out since the '30s. We were into our backgammon.

We were playing as the acid took effect. One of us rolled the dice, the game being close to ending. We looked at the roll.

"Hey, if I play this move, I win. If I play this move, the game changes against me."

And so the game went the other way, all the men scurried around to the other side. One of us was about to win and rolled. We looked at the dice.

"Hey, if I play this move, I win. If I play this move, the game changes against me."

And so the game went the other way, all the men scurried around to the other side. One of us was about to win and rolled. We looked at the dice.

So, you all know where this is going? We played one game all night, the men flowing back and forth, back and forth. And we had total control.

Effin eh, Pate, that is shweet. Only 7.5K? I work with a gal whose father is good buds with S. Clay Wilson. She has several signed originals of "Checkered Demon" and "Captain Pissgums". She has no clue of their value or why.

Pffft.
We mostly tripped in the open sea.....When you know you're 6000 miles from shore.
You're sailin' around. A slight distraction? Sure.....Count me in.
I do like the shrooms better, though.
Just another flava.

Shrooms eh? Anyone ever try the fabled Amanita Muscaria? I found and did them in Tuolumne Meadows once. Talk about a mystical journey... Whew. The next day I went looking for more and found a bunch, but somehow I never got the courage to do them again. Nothing like LSD or psylocybin.

"I haven't done TONS of acid thank God, just enough to come close to seeing God on several occasions."

More like you came close to seeing Satan.

God/Jesus, does not use mind altering substances to bring you closer to Him.

You are deceiving yourself and others Bluey, you are fortunate to have not had a bad result(as in really bad result).

I will never touch the sh#t again, but I had a blast while I could hang. The last time I took acid, I took four blotters of somewhat decent sh#t, but I crashed hard, and my girlfriend of the day was ready to call the paramedics; I slept for almost 48 hours straight afterwards. Anyways...

...the first time was in 1984 while living in San Francisco. We were going to go see Metallica at the Mabuahy Gardens (anyone remember the Mab, Rock on Broadway, The Stone? Those were the days!). Anyways, we had the inside that "The Four Horsemen" were Metallica, and there was no way we were going to miss the show. The only question was, what to do.

One of the gang got a hold of some acid. Anyways, it was four-way window pane, and I took four (sixteen total, but you know...) hits as my first trip. Well, sixteen hits of some pretty clean sh#t along with intense underground thrash metal led to a very powerful experience. It would be extremely intense to be able to pass along this trip on to someone else, and I wish I could have bottled it.

I imagine many of you very fine folks had great experiences during your hippie regime and your summer of love. Imagine that you were a teenager during the trash metal revolution of the 80's living in San Francisco and experiencing the Bay Area Trash revolution of the time while on tripping on LSD. It was not as well know or widespread, but it was insane nontheless.

i used to deal shrooms for a while, eat em every day.

acid and shrooms and the electric guitar, maybe a keg of beer,

got chased by the cops on acid, which is the worst trip in the world.

got away by running like hell, thank you cross country training.

Mr Garnel, a bald hi school chem teacher, his face started melting one time.

bad sh#t to get attacked by a mtn lion while your on acid,

hey ring, i torched my shoulder last weekend, so could not climb.

think it is coming back for the shindig, almost canceled out,
