I have been off of hardcore tripping for approx 5 years now, but have felt the call back to recently. In the past I had taken ecstacy several times and had also done a fair amount of acid. Still I had never taken the plunge into what my friends call ShroomLand, so I felt now was the time.

My wife's sister and friend were coming up for the weekend, at which point I said that I was going to spend an evening with my friends, smoking weed and hanging out. Upon hearing that I was coming over my friend D told me he had some bomb E pills that I should check out, I had told him a few weeks ago to be on the lookout. My other friend G said he was contemplating doing a hippy flip and asked if I would like to join. Having no experience with shrooms, I thought this was a good environment to try them in, since G is a very old and dear friend, a former roommate. Also friend L wanted to hippy flip and S was just going to roll. Since it was the saturday before halloween, all of our drunken friends would be at parties elsewhere and we would have the house to ourselves.

11pm - ingested 3.5g mushrooms home-grown by friend L, not too bad going down, horrible after-taste. G had to grind them up and put them is shots of orange juice since he had done shrooms quite a few times. A few minutes after the shrooms settle, we popped the E so both would set in around the same time.

11:20 - L and I decided we wanted to try out a little ping pong on the come up, which we quickly discovered was already upon us. We had trouble making contact with the ball at all, much less hitting it on the table, after 5 minutes all was reduced to hysterical laughter.

11:45 - We had decked out the house in all sorts of blacklights, colored lights, posters and tapestries, so it was a tripping dreamworld. Upon sitting on a couch I noticed the tapestry in front of me was swirling uncontrollable, rainbows covered the walls and made incredible geometric patterns, dancing to the Amon Tobin song that was playing in the room.

12:30 - Everyone is tripping hard, S is still waiting for the E to take hold, but for L, G and I, the world is an insane river of motion and color, seeping into every crack of every room

, lots of three dimensional patterns seemed significantly tied to the music we were listening to.

1:30 - All of a sudden, 3 of our friends came home from the party they had been attending. This sudden change in company and environment immediately halted all visuals for the whole party. After this, we migrated to a single room to talk as the E was beginning to run strong. All of us were good friends, L and I had been best buds since 1st grade, so there was a lot of love and pure friendship among us all, leading to great conversation and plenty of great hugs. We talked about our lives, the world, eventually coming up with the conclusion that everything in the world and universe was integrated with each other. That was the 'shroom word' for the evening, integrated seemed to sum up everything that we felt on this trip.

3:30 - The major peak of the E was now wearing off, so the shrooms seemed less prominant as well, but we all still sat around and enjoyed the come down, which was remarkable smooth considering how strong the E was. We smoked a couple of bowls to easy the come down and also each took some 5-HTP to build back up our serotonin. It was an incredible trip, I feel like the E played a large roll in keeping the shrooms from having a darker side to them

, it was all just positive thoughts.

4:30 - Off to bed, my mind was too tired to even smoke another bowl, time to let it rest and reflect

Next Day - Felt okay, still a little exhausted. It was a little hard to go back to my wife and re'integrate' (hehe) with the rest of the world, I felt as if I had been on an unattainable plateau and would not be able communicate with the rest of the world. This feeling quickly passed.

All in all it was an incredible feeling and experience, I will most definitely try shrooms again it was something I will never forget.
