He was a machine... although I can't quite recall how many hashes and bud went into his joint (I think 8?), I do have pictures...

We are on the Amstel near the Waterlooplein market, just up from the Blauwbrug... where were you folks?
this will be our third stay at this one (have to book it a year in advance!)
it's on prinsengracht at the corner of the nordermarket
schlijper has a recent night photo of it - the boat is black and white (and has a canal side covered porch). just a hop skip and jump away from the asoka. i love the neighborhood and always rented apartments in this area prior to the love affair with the boat.



sorry to miss those joints!
That is expected of the winner of the Best Joint Roller at the Channels 10th Anniversary Party... do you still have your award?


I still have mine : does everyone else?

:-)
Banks, wish I'd known you were going. We could have chipped in for a nice luxe apartment.
Anyways, the awards are somewhere.
That was a fun few weeks.
I will be bringing some more pipes. Hope to see some familiar faces.
How do you bypass the new security scans. I just got through reading about them and i was shocked. No more risks for me. If they can actually see the images I've seen of the scans, then it isn't worth it unless I want to cornhole it up my ass.....er arse.

Airports are a definite no no , even more so with the new(ish) scanners . Never had a problem when sailing to and from . Only very occasionally have I seen someone pulled up . I dont bother bringing anything home these days but have had oz 's over the years . It really isn't worth the hassle of getting fucked around .
Get yer stuff in America; it's better and safer.
don't write yer, use your. this is not acd and you are not bumlord.
I'm talking about bringing some back here, Bo. I know America has great great gear. I am an Oregon native. Might as well call the buds trichs in Oregon.
Where abouts in Oregon? That is where I'm living now.
Thank you.
Yewr right Chig, don't fuck around with the English language.
It's irritating.

I'm from Beaverton, NW 185th and Farmington and SE 33rd Burnside to Madison stretch.

Cool, my guess was the Portland area. We stay in Beaverton when we go up to see String Cheese Incident at Horning's Hideout every summer.

Grants Pass...
Lmao. Thanks for pointing that out I never would've gotten it. For a brief second I thought he was referring to Mariota, but that didn't make any sense.
You think you are confused?

For a second there I thought it said " Pants Grass ".

As long as Grant passes gas in his pants.
nobody has read any of paddywank's threads for a while now.
This is how I imagine you to look chig:

I suppose imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

So you invented the stammer did you?
You two dickheads are like something out of Grange Hill. Fucking Gripper Stebson and Zammo going around the playground ganging up on the other kids.
Fuck me, your cultural references are right up to date aren't they?
feeding trolls becomes a bore fairly quickly

A few ideas for those who may be spending in Amsterdam



I saw a show about in Austrailia about the machines there at the airport.
From what I understood, they can tell if an item is in a tube or tin and is different than what is already in there. This includes color as well. Smells I thought I heard them mention. It would seem that then only use one location if doing to limit the observations. It would seem only small amounts would be logical to do. I just went though schipol also to London downstairs. After my bag went though I heard like someone upstairs was also checking and called out 'wait let me see that again.' and bag went back. So I suspect that the guys on the floor, if they are unsure of something they have the guru upstairs take another look.
Me too Seouleast..weird little gang over there. Wild double standards have been noted along with a cohesive pack mentality.

It's all good. I don't lose sleep over things like that. He stopped posting after I mentioned his weight. None since. The other sheep can fuck off. Hope to meet a couple so I can ice skate on their faces and laugh my ass off whilst stoned.

About to embark soon. 5 more days.
Peace to you all and have a great New Years!
Looking for any tips on cheap hotels or rooms for rent. Looking now on this site links. Thanks!
How nice to see you posting again Seouleast.

You might find something in the section here.

:-)
Some like the near Wetteringschanse. Both are pretty cheap (or at least were.)

Hotel Sarphati was €13 per night back in February, including breakfast, last February, for a bed in a dorm room.... I've stayed in worse.
Thanks everyone. I appreciate it.

Going to stay at Vijaya. Theguest recommended it and it is close to the station so all trams lead back there if I make it far out on foot.

Peace and hope to see someone there.

UK Bag lady and Bo, nice to see you, too.
Should be okay, lots of steep stairs and its close to the church bells. The restaurant got good reviews from other channelites and it is close to cs. Have fun. P.s. I still have the peace pipe you gave me at de kuil.
I still have mine as well.
@seouleast I saw your thread on ACD. One time when I flew back from Schiphol I got picked out by a sniffer dog in the tunnel just before boarding the plane to the UK. It was the one time I DIDN'T have anything and I hadn't been in a coffeeshop for at least a week. Those dogs have sensitive noses, either that or the dog wanted petting. I suspect I was grassed up though by a vindictive Dutch person as I'd just walked out of my job lol...


Also the trains to Germany often have German Border Control sniffer dogs and Polizei waiting when the train stops. I risked it a few times in 1998 but I doubt I would now...

What happens to you if you get caught with weed at Schiphol? I can't imagine it's anything too Draconian given their liberal attitude towards cannabis use!

I've been told that even if you get napped flying into a UK airport with less than 7 grammes, all they do is confiscate it and tell you not to be a naughty boy next time!

I'm tempted to bring some back with me every time I go!


Peace, Des.

I don't know if they could claim you're in UK territory once on the plane, and you could get conspiracy to import a controlled substance...at the very least you'd miss your plane, get a record with the Dutch and the English customs lot, a fine, and have a load of bloody hassle...Oh, and if you got shitty with them, they'd fuck you...cavity searches, home searches, everything they can to speed up their day and maybe get some overtime in
I'd like to add that I used to throw caution to the wind, I know longer do. Age and experience of being fucked by the system. However, sometimes gambling can pay off...

I once (some time around 2000) accidentally brought back a half-smoked joint in a plastic tube in my jacket pocket. I have friends who've never come back from Amsterdam without a bit of weed, and none of them have ever been caught.

There's no way I'd do it deliberately. It's not worth it.
i've got a story about being caught fetching hash home from Holland. I've told it here before, so i'll tell it again in as short a form as i can manage.

big lump of leb from haarlem and various bits of decent hash from around the city turns out best part of a hundred grammes in total. didn't do that good a job of hiding it, in fact just put it in bag.
fairly certain that the cloggies at schiphol sussed it and informed john lennon.
jedi mind trick didn't work at Liverpool. these are not the drugs you're looking for. yes they fucking are, don't be clever.
thirty minutes left alone in an absolutely empty customs hall with passport which was not removed and only checked once.
hash weighed and confiscated, name and address written in pencil at the back of a notebook. sent home.
expected a visit from local plod. never happened. expected a tickle on every future visit to Amsterdam, can't say for definite if that happens or not. always get a good looking at on the ferry but do ok at airports.

Jaysus! ... Thank fuck we live in the UK! You'd do some serious prison time in a lot of countries for trying to import a 100 grammes!

Peace, Des.
Never look shifty when passing next to those two way mirrors at customs. There's always some jobsworth on the other side looking to make their day more exciting.
They're looking for the ones trying to not look shifty...look shifty man, you'll sail through
I breeze through 'cos I don't try to try and not look shifty.

Ferries are like that. I've been twice on the ferry and I got turned inside out each time. Never been stopped at the airport.

You'd get the death sentence in some countries for much less.
Nothing to gain but everything to lose if caught, so have never done it myself and never will. Best bet is to post some back home around the 2 week countdown to Xmas as Royal Mail are inundated with packages and post around this time and sorting centres too manic to cope scrutinising every single item.

It would be hard work trying not to look shifty at Imam Khomeini International Airport if you had 100 grammes of hash stashed up your Gary Glitter!

Peace, Des.
I'm not going back to the UK, but wish I was. Chigusa got robbed by the cops who figured they'd smoke the gear.

I always blaze up heavily at the airport. Once I check my luggage, which I do early, I step back out to smoke at least 2 full well packed joints. I must reek of thc. If there ever was a dog, I'd offer the cop a sniff of my sleeve or coat and let him know why his dog is giving me the evil eye.
