DOSE:
20 mg oral 2C-I

BODY WEIGHT: 190 lb


About Me: 6'1', 190lbs, clean mental state, and very experienced user of psychedelics among other things.

Last night I ingested the 20mg's of 2c-I at around 8pm. My plans for the night are to get bundled up, put together a master playlist, and go walking around the neighborhood checking out Christmas lights.

+1 hour: Sitting at the computer, looking for things to put on my playlist. It is extremely cold outside and there is about 3 feet of snow. I decide to put our very own Shamantis' album Music For Dolphins, Spaces album Voyages, Deltron 3030 by Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Dub Side of the Moon by Easy Star All-stars, Oracular Spectacular by MGMT, Enter the 37th Chamber by El Michels Affair, and Thievery Corporations latest Radio Retaliation.

+2 hours: As I begin to get dressed for my trek into the frozen tundra I feel some very nice initial vibrations. No visuals yet, but definitely feeling something. I exit through my backdoor and begin my journey.

+2.5 hours: Shamantis proves to be an excellent soundtrack to a voyage through this winter wonderland. I decide to take the path of least resistence at each interestion I come to. Meaning go where ever the sidewalk has been shoveled. As I take each step the snow on the ground begins to swirl. The need to make each step very deliberate becomes more and more of a dominating factor in my head. The ice is everywhere and slipping would be no fun at all.

+3 hours: I make my way to the neighborhood park where I have to get through 3 feet of snow to get to a bench. As soon as I sit down, the visuals instantly begin getting groovy. The tree tops begin to blur and airplanes are being followed by glittering smoke. Each house I look at has its own personality. The lights are just the icing on the cake. I decide to get going because I know my journey is far from over. I walk about 50 yards through the field. Each step is a chore.

+3.5 hours: By now I am on Voyages by Spaces. It's been a while since I have listened to Avant Garde progressive and I am really enjoying it. As I walk, a cop car pulls into the road I am about to walk across. He stops and observes another pedestrian walking to their house. I stop as the cop starts pulling back and goes back where he came from. Close call.

+4 hours: I am still walking and the lights are starting to play tricks on me. I feel like they are making a game of catching my eye and making me stop to observe. No worries though, it's all lighthearted fun. I see another cop car, but he just rolls by. This is very strange seeing so many cops in my neighborhood. Something is up, but I'm too high to care. And then another cop car starts heading my way, shining their spot lights down each block. I stop as I'm walking right as they pass. 'Is something going on, guys?' and the officer says they are looking for someone. I calmly tell him I have seen no one out here but me, he thanks me and continues on. Now I know I better make my way home before I encounter this guy they're looking for.

+4.5 hours: As I make my way back to my house, I walk by a woman shoveling her driveway, I'm not sure what time it is, but know its way too late to be out shoveling. I become slightly nervous. Not sure what to do as I pass, I gave her a friendly wave. About 5 steps after I wave, I looked back and she was somehow completely covered in lights. Not sure of how real that was, I begin to second guess everything. As I get to my street, I worry about my neighbors and how they will react to a man, dressed in basically all black, just walking around this late. I make it into my house and then my body starts feeling extremely crazy.

+5 hours: I get down to my bedroom and start taking off all of these clothes. I am very sweaty underneath it all. Now with no music in my ears and complete silence, save my foot steps and breath, I am really tripping hard. My first though is ADULT SWIM!

+6 hours: I lay in my bed, under black lights and watch Squidbillys, Aqua Teen, Robot Chicken, and Metalacolypse. It seems like every time I take a psychedelic, I fall in love with another show on Adult Swim. This time it was Squidbillys. The tv is grooving like a lava lamp and I see the craziest shit going on in the background of commercials.

+7 hours: I decided to listen to Nothing Lasts...But Nothing is Lost by Shpongle. Aka, my favorite tripping cd. As it starts, I quickly grab my neon sharpies and notebook. I just let my body move however it wants. The music is stirring something up inside of me. The walls are melting and my arms become jell-o. After Nothing Lasts... Is over I decided to go upstairs and lay on the couch.

+8 hours: As I lay on the couch, I can feel the 2c-I gently exiting. Things start making sense and TV begins to be a little less funny. I layed there for another couple of hours and eventually fell asleep.

Next Day: I woke up for about an hour at like 10am with my body feeling majorly drained. Not quite as bad as a ecstasy hangover (which I rarely get), I just feel very sleep deprived and hungry. I fell back asleep about an hour later till 6pm and woke up feeling great.

In Conclusion: This was a very enjoyable trip and I do plan on doing it again. This being my 3rd time with 2c-I, and all times being with 20mg's, I want to try maybe 30mg's next time.
