Truecannabliss' IC Mag 420 cup adventures

Hey all been back a couple days now and the trip to the cup resulted in what were undoubtably 3 of the best days of my life, this is no understatement and i make it after failing to find a word worthy of describing how wonderful it was.
So many great stories,great laughs , tears of laughter, superb weed , delicous hash and most of all so many wonderful people , my biggest regret is having missed few ic'ers and that i did not get to hang with a few as much as id hoped, never the less i think i managed to say hi to most of the peeps from icmag that attended.
In a lifestyle that can so often segrigate us from society and force us to be paranoid and wary it was a beautiful experience to be able to meet so many like minded people, to feel as though you belonged and were around the type of people who judge you on who you are, ignoring the visual and focusing on the person inside, no steroetypes or generalisations. Still puts a smile on my face to think of all the different looking people, what a motly bunch we were, had people baffled when we all walked the streets, such a variation of age, background, race, nationality that under any other circumstance would rarely find such a mix, let alone one of such positive, talented, good people.
There was so much to take in and experience, so many people and places with so much info to absorb. The ability to discuss the love of smoking and growing cannabis so openly and with such varied opinions was a joy that i will miss greatly till next year, although im sure we will manage on here at IC.
I shall be continuing this thread as the memories flood back so it may take some time, ill throw up a few photos too but sadly i dont have many due to rain(difficult to carry around) and being far to stoned.
Everyone who contributed to my trip a BIG THANKYOU, i shall get into specifics soon, one thing is for sure i am one very happy guy currently planning a week to the dam from 17/04/2006 till 23/04/2006 and also pondering my entry.
Keep an eye out for updates and ill see ya in chat real soon.
Peace

and back they flood...................

This trip had been planned since the end of last year and despite having checked mine and Marleys flight and hotel details 100 times since then I probably did it another 20 times in the 24 hours leading up to departure. All went well and after a 3.30am wake up we were in Amsterdam by around 8am, there were no problems and upon arrival i became even more excited and in need of a spliff.
As usual we jumped the train to central station and began to search out our hotel which i knew was near where we had stayed previously, after some searching and a few questions we arrived and within minutes it dawned on us it was where we had stayed the time before .
Our rooms were not ready so we threw our cases in the luggage room and quick stepped to the nearest coffee shop, once inside it was apparent it was a tourist place and after nothing jumped out i decided on a gramm of one for 7euros, as i saw it on the scales i realised i was gonna need more for my big pure spliffs so i asked for another, as i did Marley began to order his and by doing so confused the man serving and resulting in me getting charged for 1gramm, i waited untill he had finished serving Marley and then informed him of his mistake and gave him the other 7euros and telling him 'thats good karma'. The weed was not very nice but did the job for the time being, calmed me down a little but I was still dieing to get to Seedboutique so we began to make our way there.
Upon walking through the door i was encountered my the ever friendly smile of Dutchgrown and a very busy shop, i was so excited who could be who? and then i was hit with a shock that sent me reeling from that moment on,
myself and Marley were told that we were being upgraded to Expert Judges because some people had not made it(my heart goes out to them you can not begin to realise how much i appreciated the passes). I was overwealmed to say the least, why Dutchgrown chose us i will never know but i think Karma played a big part(that thought shot through my mind repetitivly) and the fact that her and the crew are so wonderful. I have to say that the thread will lose its fluidity now as i was now faced with 30hours to judge all the entries and things are not so clear from here on in. Fear not folks i am a serious smoker and the fact i had been bestowed with this honour gave me the extra drive to do it efficient and fairly.
Now before i finish this section i have to say that i did have doubts as to there being so much weed that it would be passed about to get rid of it but i am not joking it was amazing how much smoking went on, how much weed was consumed, anyone who did not have an expert pass were well looked after and no one was left out, everywhere you turned there was something to smoke being handed to ya, bong, sliff, pipe, vape it was everywhere, kind of vibe where a cirle of 5 have 8 spliffs a bong and a pipe all on the go at the same time, you can not grasp it without actually being there so start saving for next year now.
Peace

sitting in seeds boutique

So there i am sitting in Seeds boutique overwealmed and looking forward to the chalange, within a few minutes i have met some wonderful people such as Oldpink, Baccus, Bog, Bluevelvet, HOG and so many its hard to remember, OHenry and his mrs turned up, great couple. I was expecting Hazyfontazy and Dr D (whos i have met in england) to be there and within a few minutes they had arrived, I did not mention to Dr D about my upgrade as I felt bad he had not been, then hey presto along comes the angel of the day Dutchgrown to upgrade Dr D, now this was gonna be some serious fun
Hazyfontazy arrived after having waited at the station for us, he must have been smoking a lot was my thoughts coz we arranged to meet at the shop .
So i began to start judging and on the advice of someone started with the smallest catagory first in order to get the hang of the judging- HASH here i come this stuff was all delicous and as potent as hell all of em and aftr smoking all 3 one after another in my newly aquired glass pipe which came in my goodie bag. After smoking so much weed back home recently it was such a pleasent change to hit some hash, all bubbled and went down so smoothly i was not sure if i was inhaling till i began to exhale, it was hard to judge the potency of em but i did my best, between each entry i began to realise how much weed was being smoked it was coming at me from all angles. One of the highlight of that hour of so was the meeting of the generous Trichomefarmer who seemed to be offering hits of his full melt bubble at very oppertunity and may i say it was a true pleasure to smoke, unlike any i have ever tried before so smooth and creamy with a rich taste, thanks again.
The fun was under way and me and Marley began to plan our day with Dr D and Hazy, the plan-hit Fat City, smoke, smoke and smoke some more. on amore personal note i decided to begin sampling the grower sativa entries, reason being that ive always been a indica head and wanted to get a taste for the sativa tastes and effects.
Thats all for now but keep an eye out for more soon.
Peace
oh and here is one of the hash entries

so on we go............

So after a nice walk to Fat City (them sativas had me floating round the place), where i quickly became addicted to their hot chocolate me and Marley said farewell for a quick trip back to our hotel to check in if i remember correctly we had to get Dr D to come with us to find the way my perception of direction totally went out of the widow for this trip, i mean i've been her 6 time i know my way but just couldnt figure my bearing. The hotel stop was a quick one accompanied by a KFC after all so fare breakfast had consisted of hash and sativas, with the odd indica thrown my way too.

Things go a little hazy for a bit between then and the trip to Nols, actually a lot hazy so let me jump right to the point of being outside the station with a whole bundle of rag tag stoners, we really covered the human spectrum :smile: and the journey there was fun just to see people looking at all 40+ of us, when we reached nols shop in Haarlem the 1st one was packed so off we went to his other, this was no easy task for DG to keep us all in check but she had great help from Tricomefarmer who held back to watch out for strays. when we arrived at Nols (cant remember the shops name) it was the most impressive coffee shop i have been into and Nols standard as a host was even more tremendous, as if we have'nt got enough to smoke he starts throwing down lumps of icolator hash, manali and some beatiful bio weed (cant remeber the name) and let me say this was not the leftovers or low grade it was top shelf and not crumbs and the odd nug, lumps and bags of nugs. The shop had everything a stoner could ask for and some that they would be too stoned to think of asking for, so much time and attention to detail that you just know thsi guy loves to toke, just seems he is putting his dreams into realities. Many many thanks again Nol we could not have dreamt of a warmer welcome, next visit to dam im gonna come visit ya for a few days to soak up the Haarlem vibe. After a nice smoke and some beautiful conversation it was time to head back, unless ya wanted to make your own way back( and that would have been the last u would have seen of me ).
Being that it was day 2 of the cup and i had very little time left to do my judgung i was on a serious mission and spent the rest of the day and night in Fat city kicking it with what would become our main companions(Jubei+2) and a whole bunce more all gathered round, Fredster jamming will always stick out in my mind, such a free spirit it was a joy to see him enjoy himself so much. Baccus never far and always with a big smile and a joint offered your way. The smoking was going real hard and we were relentless in our pursuit of our judging task. I have always considered myself a heavy smoker, with my only limitation being quantity, for the first time that was not an issue and i was able to smoke non stop, this is where i would like to say that Jubei and his buddy from the US are men after my own heart, they just never stopped, they were rolloing em up every moment and that suited our style perfectly, also i picked up a new habit of building my spliffs shorter and fatter, real good way to enhance the flavour and general enjoyment of the smoke. Basically these guys would do USA proud if smoking pure weed were a sport, they would have people wondering if they had iron lungs fitted
they kind of made my consumption level feel a hell of a lot more normal and less greedy. Eventually it was kicking out time, the sadest time of the night and my only complaint, we want a 24 hour venue there was nowhere to go till late. Anyway we made our way off and after some wandering round looking for somewhere open late everywhere was now closed and we made our way back to the hotel to finally get some sleep some 25+ hours after i woke to begin this journey and with the whole grower sativa entries, hash entries and a few others all smoked not to mention all the other entries and all the other smoke passed our way it was much needed sleep, that damn Jubei kept forcing non entry smokes our way not to mention that you only had to flinch and he had brought a round of drinks, him and his buddy were 2 of the finest people i have had the pleasure of meeting in my lifetime and i do not say that lightly, we laughed , smoked and partied so hard it hurts to be back to the mundane existance of normality, I have a feeling were gonna hook up sooner rather than later though :wink:
As my head hit the pillow i was out for the count.
Peace

Hey peeps another memory just came back after seeing a picture of our table, at Nols there was a real nice guy and his girl at our table who gave me 2 stickers, a strawberry cough and a sensi star 2.5gramm labels which i stuck on my giant sample bag, real nice to have met you, dont think i got ur name but it was a pleasure.
Im at a bit of a brain freeze at the moment, cant quite get going with the rest, too busy planning next year in my head. Anyway, anyone who met me and i have forgotton let me know.
a quick special mention must also go out to amsterdammer at the cannabis college, great guy who i will tell you more about soon, met him on our 1st day and was like seeing an old buddy after that, so down to earth, anyway more of that and more tales soon.
Peace
