    I was just wondering people's opinions on tripping during the day as opposed to nighttime. I have done both, but I have only tripped at night indoors and I was curious if people thought tripping sack outdoors is better at night or during the day. Peace.

    I find that tripping during the day is a lot more enjoyable for me. It seems more reassuring and safe, plus you get to enjoy nature in its awesome light. Tripping at night can be confusing and I sometimes get a little paranoid if the weather is bad.

    daytime trips are excellent. you get all the bright colors and you can
    see better so its great for hallucinations, after all mushrooms are a
    very visual drug. its very psychedelic. when ive tripped during the day
    the world has seemed like alice in wonderland or some kind of fairy
    tale or sometihng, i love to be in nature when tripping in the day. the
    night is also a great time to trip as well. the majority of my trips
    have been at night. it seems a lot more spooky and strange tripping at
    night. you can't see as well but hallucinations come out of the shadowy
    places you cant see well, so that makes up for it. nature is good, but
    i also like going somewhere with people when im tripping at night. when
    i trip at night im going for the strange rather than the psychedelic,
    and as jim morrison once said, people are strange. i like to go
    somewhere with a lot of people and just observe whats going on. i once
    sat on a bench and watched a couple have this really intense argument
    over the custody of their child while i was on mushrooms. people are
    the most advanced animals on the planet, it seems logical that their
    habits and personalities would be a trip.

    Interesting point. I find that other people put me on edge when I'm tripping. I'm only truly comfortable tripping with fellow trippers or someone who knows me well and knows that I'm tripping.

    i personally dig the late night trips when the world seems quite still. eventually the sun rises before you come down witch always brings some magic and that way you can kinda explore the best of both worlds


    i wholly agree with the tripping at night for the strangeness


    every evening of this years Bonnaroo blew my mind with its utter strangeness

    If you are going to trip during the day do it on a nice overcast cold day. Psychedellics tend to raise body temp some, so doing them on a hot day can be both gross and make you kinda sick[​IMG].


    It should be over cast too, cause bright lights reduce hallucinogenic effects considerably.


    Best just to do them at night most of the time. [​IMG]

    i love day tripping, especially if its blue sky with a couple of clouds. I dont like tripping here at night it gets too cold, i will only do it if theres a decent fire going. And its gotta be done in the bush, psychedelics in the city just feels plain wrong for me, i notice all the wrong things.

    Day tripping can be fun because all the bright colors lookgreat, but I has found he enjoys it more at night where its all quiet and peaceful and not many people or cars around.

    Day tripping for I am way to intense because all of the activity, get a real parinoid state of mind during the day.

    Yep, matter of preference. I am really a more of a night-tripper, but
    more by habit and circumstances than anything. I find that if you're
    tripping inside, night with funky lighting gives better visuals, but tripping
    outside is better during the day (everything looks "fake"!).

    But like said, its all what You prefers.

    ^^^

    I agree with this in terms of the visuals. Night time tripping looks more awesome the way lights work through the darkness. Day time tripping is good fun if one were to be out in nature, free to do as they please.

    My two belated cents:

    Day tripping intensifies the mental high; the energy from nature or the environment collects in my head and distributes in waves through my body. Absolute lucidity and clarity, hence the "fake" feeling.

    Night tripping takes the static patterns, light halos, and shadow/light interaction of the environment and gives them prominence over the more "mental" high, with enough concentration producing very clear animated visuals.

    Same process, different setting, different result.

    Day tripping feels calmer and has more of a fun type feeling for swim. He enjoys relaxing outside and absorbing nature. Its the best during the Fall, when all the colours make swim go crazy with euphoria.

    Night tripping, which swim prefers, feels more intense with the visuals. The stars look amazing, the ground is way trippier than normal, the the trees and plants get an evil feeling to them. Swim tends to feel darker emotions at night and its a more interesting trip to him. The downside is that he is usually inside for at least half the trip and being inside on an intense trip doesn't feel as good as being surrounded by nature. All of swim's bad trips were inside buildings. They just feel so artificial on shrooms.

    Re: better at day oe night

    From what I've read somewhere, the Aztecs who were the first users of Teonanctl always used the shrooms at night. They believed that it accentuated the mystical aspects of the experience. But, like I've read above, it can be a purely personal experience. I would suggest that you try both experiences several times & decide for yourself

    Re: better at day oe night

    Swim utilises shrooms by day for interreaction with the world around and by night for internal journies,I find there to be a marginal increase in visual effect at night but thinks both to be equally valid in what they have to offer.
