A Day in the Desert (Instead of Nocturnal)
This whole weekend begins as J, C, S, Je, D, and I decide to take a two day trip into our nearby
National Park in sunny Southern California. Due to the fact that Je. is going into the Navy in five days, we must get him drunker than a skunk during his last civilian days. I used to be a heavy drinker, but now I enjoy psychedelic drugs. C decided to bring 30 cubes of liquid for us that weren’t drinking. So J, who never dosed before takes 2 hits and C takes 8, D takes 3, S takes 2, and I take 7. We drop at about 7:00pm and we decided to set up camp at "Jumbo Rocks". About 5 min later the Park Ranger drives by and asks us
to be quiet, no partying, no alcohol, cause you all seem to be minors. We agree.....
Bout 30 min later, we begin feeling the affects of the LSD. I decide to take a walk, it is now
getting dark and C decides to tag along. I assume I am hearing things, but I know that there are other teens here so it must be them yelling. I walk toward the sounds and screams and find 4 people about my age. C and I begin talking to them and we find out that they are from nearby Joshua Tree. We find out that they like drinking and they are in the process of getting plastered on a rock ledge that we climb up to. After 10 min J comes bounding up the trail screaming " I like chocolate covered coffee beans" I know he
must be really high now....C, the four people, and I begin laughing hysterically. Soon D comes up the trail too with a duffel bag full of Mickeys grenades and 3 bottles of liquor. Everyone begins drinking with the exception of C and I. S comes up and begins hitting on the 2 Bi-Polar girls that where with the Big guy and his short woman with spiky hair and a protruding belly ( the members of the group of 4) soon they are all plastered and I discover that Je and the dark hair’ed Bi-Polar girl have run off into the desert.
After seeing S pull a "Tommy Boy" ( falling flat on face) about six times I decide its time to find Je. About 50ft. into my journey I find the 2 of them walking back in our direction but they are now wearing each others
clothing...really funny.........come to find out they where wearing EVERYTHING, down to underwear... so at the big rock they strip and trade clothing and we begin our good-byes. they pack into a Geo Metro , which looks like a clown car to me now........
C begins flipping out so I go ahead of the others and escort him to his car where I cover the car with sleeping bags over the windows because he says the Moose with the cheese jacket is gonna eat his hair......I’m beginning to see some wild CEV as well as some mild OEV's and I sit with him for what seems to be an hour..... after about 20 min real-time I take him to his tent and he decides to be alone, and try to sleep it off......I take J to the car and we begin listening to some Psytrance, and he says " Wow this music is good when your.........zoink." I laughed my ass of to that comment.
After a while I decide I want to write some thoughts I have been having ( the meaning of the world type). I later discover the pen was broken and leaked ink all over my hands and I wiped it on my face. after I climb out of the car ( bout 2:30 am now) I find myself with a steering wheel cover around my neck, a coke in my hand and a flashlight in the other. I go into the tent and try to lay down now. as I stare up at the tent I see the stars come through the tent and I decide to go outside and look up at them. I lay down in the middle of the street and begin to stare through the stars. I discover that I can spin them on my fingertip and make them dance around for me.
I return to the tent and find a pair of my pants rolled up in the corner so I grab them and begin to play with them. Soon I see there is light coming through the bottom of the leg. I put the pants on my head and grab around the ankle area and wave the legs around screaming" All-booga-la-la-la-la" everyone laughs a whole lot so I decide I want to see them laugh so I begin to climb through the leg to see out where I saw the light earlier. soon I can see out and I start panicking because I forgot how I got down the
leg and I fear I’m lost. “I’m lost in my pants" I scream.....everyone just laughs. I got out bout 10 min later and I sit quietly, watching the patterns in my head......I start to hear music in my mind and soon I feel myself dancing even thought I’m sitting still.... I look over to S and say " hey S, this sucks, there is a party in
my head, I even sent out invitations to everyone but no one showed up, I’m sitting in the corner with a bowl of chips and some salsa with the music playing, but no one is here." everyone laughs again...I think I must be funny in this state cause they have laughed so much.
about 5 min later I’m sitting still and the wind blows the tent just a little bit. Then I scream" Stop advancing on my territory, you damn tent guy"......they laugh again, I’m lost here guys I think. Then I lay down and wait for sunrise. The sun comes up and J, S, and I grab our BB guns and decide " we want hunt us some food" so we go and try to hike to the tallest outcrop we can find. About mid way up J
screams Mother Bi*ch, freeze,or I blow you" in a Arab accent....I turn around only to get shot in the leg. I scream in pain and so begins a "Matrix-Style-Old-West-Shootout" I shoot S in the chest once then J walks around the corner and S takes aim, J screams "Hey, not fair, I’m empty", then proceeds to empty ten shots into S's midsection, luckily we where wearing jackets or it would have hurt more. Then I get shot from above by J,
and then in the cheek with a ricochet by S.
We GOP back to camp and J shoots a sleeping D in the back.He screams, we all go for a hike and I went and sat on rock for about an hour pondering what has happened in the past 12 hours.
We packed up at about 12:30 PM and went home to sleep till bout 11:00pm that night then we
all discovered how much we didn’t miss at Nocturnal Wonderland..............We had way more fun, no lines, no searches, plenty of open space.
If you see any problem with this report, please feel free to tell me, as this is my first of probably many to
