Any of you get high on muscaroid mushrooms?

>>2465558
I had to walk home after a work party and got really thirsty and drank all the milk out of a sheep. I woke up and was suddenly really worried for the lambs and thought I'd have to tell the farmer or her lamb would die but I asked around and they said it should be fine. Glad I didn't show up with my cap in my hands and talk to the farmer looking back.

Took a woman with me.

A near-tragic thing was the time I met a stranger (male) on MeetUp for an overnight hike.

It was seriously scary, and I think the closest I’d ever come to someone dying on a hike. The dude looked like absolute shit when we were setting up, totally drained, like someone who’s stuck in bed with the flu.

Not enough to kill you apparently. No one has ever died from amanita muscaria or pantherina. They can give you psychosis though.

couldn't you do the axe business before you took acid?

Really dumb but impressive you managed to drive and get help. Didn't you have a phone with you? Can't imagine you forget how to call but you know others can call and also you can drive..

The interior team at the park I used to work for had a guy lie on his resume to get on the team, he basically claimed he was a really high level orca card holder and all this shit but he was actually a massive dumbass, he ended up flipping the canoe with all their food in it and their GPS units, so not only did they lose 3,000$ worth of gear, but they had to call a 7 day trip short because of him, the interior team head threw the biggest shit fit Ive ever seen because it was the most rookie move, he tried to stand up in the canoe to walk over and grab food from the barrel and toppled the canoe

Not using canoe barrels
Riiiiight
>>
>>2466062
They had canoe barrels, he had opened the food barrel to get food out of it, and when the canoe flipped, the food barrel flooded with all their food in it. I think you're either brain dead, gay or just downright stupid
>>
>>2465724
If you're on drugs you have pretty much thrown logic out the window. I had an ax and a lot of wood, so I did the math, and it added up to chopping a lot of wood.

>>2465758
No cell service in the mountains, and I imagined that if a local saw a drugged-out lunatic dressed in camo and covered in blood and dirt knocking on their door after, they might be hesitant to help.

Not sure what's worse situation since I'm still alive, but here goes...
1. It was a severe draught in northern africa and I was biking in Algeria packed with water to last for my route. People were in the process of dying and water transports were guarded with AK47s. Things was very desperate and in one occasion I was close to getting stabbed.
2. Biking in south spain and got caught in a heat wave, got heat stroke and turned delirious. Some spaniards found me and got me to a hospital. Close to death.
3. Mountaineering alone and slipped on the way down. Smashed my knee but managed to jump on one leg back to nearest town. Could have smashed my head.
>>
Decided to climb a mountain covered in snow and ice while wearing summer running shoes with tread worn smooth and without any crampons, hiking poles, or an ice ax. In retrospect I don't know why I decided it was a good idea. But it went surprisingly smoothly right up until I slipped and caught my full weight on one hand, causing my wrist to make a disconcerting POP noise. So I had to carefully slide down the rest of the way with one hand. It hurt like heck and bruised my whole forearm but somehow I avoided any long term damage. Beginners luck I guess?

Any interesting stories from your trip? I've always been fascinated by the idea of biking in the Sahara

No scar but I was lucky.

At least he's listened. Every time I've had a dude get close to heatstroke, getting dizzy and slurring his words, being generally unreasonable, they always insist that they're fine and don't want to let you help them. I'm like faggot I'm not carrying you back down the mountain, so you best listen or I'll leave you here and call the cops to find you when I get home.

of course, I probably would carry them down the mountain, but they don't need to know that.

I brought non-hiking friends on a long hike. I've never seen so many minor things go so incredibly wrong, but I should've known we were set for fail when one of the fags had packed a massive bluetoothspeaker, and not even a pocketknife.
>>
I ate a big greasy local dish the night before a two week hike I organized for 4 other people. Couldn't sleep because too hot. The two next days I had an indigestion and lost 4kgs while forcing my self to continue hiking.
Luckily friends offered their help to carry my shit.

Mine's not so bad, but still stupid. A few days ago I decided to go on a 10km loop 1hr before sunset. I went alone, didn't bring a flashlight, didn't tell anyone where I was going. So as I'm about halfway through it begins to get dark, I realize I'm fucked, begin running along the trail like a retard, come to a fork in the trail, take the wrong path, realize my mistake after a few mins, decide to go off trail in the direction of where my trail *should* have lead. Get lost, have to go through thick brush and get raped by the thorns as I look for the trail. Mind you all of this time It's getting darker and darker (no moonlight, tall, thick forest). Manage to find the trail by following a creek and then climbing up a dirt embankment, then again run sections of the trail in pitch dark, schizing out in the meanwhile about all of the mountain lions, crackheads, and unholy creations which are all about to rape me any minute now. Every time I'd hear a noise (most likely caused by myself) I'd shit myself and run faster, until finally I got back to the trailhead.
tl;dr Went hiking alone at night, no flashlight, got lost and went full schizo. Worth mentioning that this was my first time ever hiking in that area, so I was basically asking for it.

Good times.
Skin was very stiff after healing, was very concerned I had disfigured myself and lost effective function of my index finger, but it eventually loosened up so I just have a cool scar from a learning experience. To date that's my only innawoods adventure despite being into survivalism and /k/ stuff, just never plan on going out or know if I have the right gear.

How do you handle the drug in question? Are you the type to get high and then go "ok, time for an elaborate plan with sharp tools that I can't possibly pull of in this state"? Then don't. If you are the type to just get stoned, set down and let it happen, then you should be fine.

Or put it another way, if you set up camp, eat, have everything ready and just use drugs for as digestif, you should be fine. If you plan on being stonned all weekend you should stay home.
