    Tripping while riding....?

    Anybody cranked out some miles tripping thier brains out? ( burning man doesn't count)

    I've snowboarded a few times and it was a blast.

    Wonder what some fast flowy singletrack would be like?

    Music or no music?

    Wow, that is effen hilarity. I can't imagine I would even be able to complete a mile. I would most likely be laughing my a$$ off at nothing and everything, and only make it about 150 ft.

    I've ridden with guys in Downieville ripping three laps with a big thermos of "tea". There's a lot of tards up here that do that. Nor Cal Hippies. . .

    No earphones/music . . . Wouldn't be able to hear "the man" sneaking up behind me.

    I tripped once while walking to my bike. Just wasn't watching my step.

    Isn't an endo somewhat like tripping on a bike?

    Man its been so long but I would say that it would be an unreal experience if your in the right frame of mind prior.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

    physical activity and the sparkly knot in my stomach and spine don't go well together, just about the only time I dont wanna play hard outside. tried kayaking on shrooms once and i couldnt really let my mind wander enough. Sitting on the couch watching Roger Rabbit is just about perfect.

    Shrooms and night riding back in the Hoosier state. The last time we did it a friend hit a tree and his bottom teeth went through his lip. Not good. I mean, the accident could happen to anybody and I doubt the shrooms had much to do with it because they don't alter your physical coordination... but to have an accident happen while all five of us were tripping and not in a good state of mind for emergency medical procedures... scary.

    Still, fun as hell.

    They do alter physical coordination by altering your perception of the space-time continuum through which you move.

    There is a great documentary called Day of the Zulu where they give tea (one shroom/one placebo) to two equally matched martial artists and let them spar...Guess who wins?

    Perception of time can be altered in two directions, though. Your physical coordination and reflexes could be enhanced as easily as reduced.

    One of my best times in college was sitting with my GF on the couch, Fantasia playing on TV (muted), Dave Mathews Band - Live at Red Rocks on the CD Player, and Red and Orange Room Lighting. Un-believably comforting experience.

    Another time was on Schnebly Hill Rd during a full moon - that was awesome also.

    Wow, similar experiences in a similar place. Walked from Lake Mary Rd thru the forest to Ft Tuthill for some carnival, then finished up the evening watching Fantasia. Burned into my long term memory now.

    guaranteed fun:
    Jumping the cliffs at Saguaro Lake in the middle of the night.
    Tubing the salt river in the middle of the night.

    Back in the day we would trade labor at the bike shop for mushrooms then go night ridding in the Prescott area. It was one of the summers the fire danger shut down the forest. We all needed to ride but we all felt The Man was going to catch us. Good times.

    Good point, no doubt.

    Here is a link to the PBS documentary - you can buy it, but I haven't found it online to show the martial artists.

    Of course, the Zulu might never have vanquished the British at Isandlwana without the help of traditional Zulu medicines. Some scholars have suggested that Zulu pharmacopoeia provided more of a psychological boost than any real physiological effect. But recent scientific studies show that the medicines contained some very potent drugs. For example, warriors were given a cannabis (marijuana)-based snuff to take during battle. Analysis of the snuff has revealed that it contained extremely high levels of THC, a powerful hallucinogen, and yet no detectable levels of the chemicals that cause the sedative effects of marijuana.

    Also in the Zulu war medicine chest: the bulb of a flower in the Amaryllis family, called Boophane disticha, or the Bushman Poison Bulb. Studies have shown that the bulb -- which was also used by southern Africans to help mummify bodies -- contains buphanidrine, an alkaloid, like codeine and morphine (although it is not related to them) with hallucinogenic and pain-killing properties. According to botanist Ben-Erik van Wyk of Rand Afrikaans University in Johannesburg, South Africa, the dosage of buphanidrine necessary to reduce pain is very close to the toxic dose, "but in a very experienced traditional healer's hands it should be safe. They usually assess the strength of a bulb by testing it on themselves."

    In addition, warriors sometimes ingested a hallucinogenic mushroom containing a toxin called muscimol. The chemical, present in fly agaric -- a mushroom that can attract and kill flies -- is said to induce a state of expanded perception in those who ingest it. Warriors who consumed those mushrooms, researchers speculate, might have been utterly without fear, believing themselves impervious to British bullets.

    Would that be Salvia Columbariae? The beloved Chia Pet plant? I hear that the native tribes would eat the seeds when running from their village to another. It was supposed to give them energy. Not the case here. Cha Cha Cha Chia!!!

    Pretty sure the Salvia that is smoked is Salvia Divinorum, which is a type of sage plant.
