    Went to the vape shop today and picked up a bottle of Red's apple flavored and two bottles of Naked's American patriots tobacco flavor. Good stuff.

    Also got annoyed by the new chubby kid behind the counter that tried telling me I have a mullet despite my wearing a hat. It's like the moron had X-ray's eyes that weren't working lol. He continued to insist I do even after telling him my hair is all the same length ( just past my shoulders ). Stupid kid was trying to argue with me about it . Not surprised considering he was watching the band staind on YouTube. Wouldn't be surprised if he's in his moms basement masturbating to vape models on the internet as I type this post. :teehee:

    Think it's time I went DIY for my vape juices from now on. :D

    Fasttech+DIY almost all I need... Only thing I get from vape shops is batteries, they're overpriced but once I factor in shipping in Canada 10-15$ it all works out...

    Researched a new charger - but haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet
    Did some maintenance on a few mechs and decided to put a couple of REOs back in rotation, and my good old Stumpy
    Finally caved in and did something I really dislike: dumped a few hundred mls of DIY juice that just wasn't going to work out no matter how many years it steeps
    Packed up a few vape things to send my cousin
    Will finish out the day by rewicking my Rose 3 and topping off my squonk refill bottles for the week

    I do something similar and can get everything I need right here in the states and most of the time free shipping. I get vape wire from Kidney Puncher (4 days shipping), most mods and attys from Element Vape ( 3 days shipping), batteries from Liion wholesale ( 2 days shipping) and recently ordered some nicotine base for some zero mg juice I have from Myfreedomsmokes ( 2 days shipping). I'll probably try MFS again for more DIY juice stuffs next time I order. MFS had a sale last week so when I ordered the nicotine base I also snagged a Zeus rta and a wasp nano rdta. :D

    Not sure what to do with mine, I started putting it all in a 1L mason jar, I've been contemplating building a fog machine and watching it all vape away on a calm wind free night in the summer...

    Those coils look very time consuming. They are nice looking.

    Unpacked the shelf I ordered to hold DIY flavors, now trying to decide where to put it. Hopefully if I can decide, hubbs will hang it for me tomorrow. It came with molly bolts (screws, whatever) and I don't deal with those things. Unpacked a box from eliquid.com containing a few flavors and a couple of calibrated cylinders. Ordered a replacement 21700 battery. Nothing very exciting.

    Also got disgusted and pulled one of my tanks off and set it aside because it has coffee-based juice in it, so the coil is toast for anything BUT coffee-based juice. I normally don't vape coffees, so had no idea that it would be totally impossible to get that flavor out. But it is, and I don't much like the juice, so am going to have to trash that coil, I guess, or save it for when I run out of everything but coffee. Pisses me off to waste coils. I just had to throw a new one away the other day because it shorted out. No, they aren't expensive, but I just don't like to waste things.

    Most positive thing was that I checked tracking on my most recent shipment from FT, and it's already in the States, so it will be here in a couple of days. Looking forward to that. Have o-rings and a drip tip from HoH to use on one of those tanks, on my new Sig Evaya mod.

    I've been into an actual vape store exactly twice in the 7 years I've been vaping. Neither time was I impressed.

    Pretty much the same with me. Tried 3 when I first started vaping over 3 years ago. Not been in one since.

    I just do not consider myself part of the 'vape culture' or 'vape nation' as I understand them.
    I am just a person that vapes instead of smoking and it has become a hobby as well.
    And I also found some nice people on vape boards. Many of which I consider friends.
    Stumbled across a few not so nice ones as well ;)

    As with smokers just because someone vapes does not mean they are a nice person.
    Take myself for instance....

    I don't go into them often but we do have a couple decent ones here, not the "vape nation" type. I just like to see if they have things in considering ordering as it's sometimes helpful to see it in person before blindly ordering it... & every once in a while I'm too impatient & the price is low enough to justify not waiting for vape mail.

    But when I lived in Tacoma, WA it was a nightmare going into vape shops. I couldn't handle the whole "That's not a vape, THIS is a vape!" hipster bullshit. Coffee shops were often the same, too.

    You aren't missing anything that's for sure. I have enough juice to hold me over until I get started on DIY. I won't be going back to a vape shop.

    I'm with Cromwell on the vape culture/nation thing. I don't feel the need to " represent " by dressing a certain way or wearing vape shirts. I vape because I'm addicted to nicotine and wanted to quit smoking for good.

    I actually had a kid ask me last year what I was vaping so I told him what it was and said it had 3mg. He actually asked me why I had nicotine in my juice. o_O Fucking idiot.

    I mainly agree with this - especially the vape culture thing - but at least the new generation is less likely to smoke

    I get the point you're making but why start vaping in the first place? Is the clouds bro clouds thing considered that cool and enticing to the younger vapers?

    Actually, now that I'm think about it I suppose it is. Neighbors 15 year old kid posed for a picture Christmas day to have his older sister take a pic. He made V and N signs with his hands. His sister asked him what that stood for and he replied Vape Nation.

    Guess I'm just getting old lol.

    How in the hell did he make an N sign with his hand?

    Brainstorm...
    Figured out that Avery mailing labels work great for making labels for your diy juices.
    Apply the label to the bottle then put a strip of packing tape over it to protect it and keep it waterproof.

    Mixed 12ml of a new recipe, Chocolate Covered Cherries. Vaped all day long while I was awake, because I was home sick. Tried to talk my son out of selling his vape gear. Hubbs hung the shelf for my DIY stuff. I'll put the flavors on it later tonight if I get a chance.

    I also fixed a Dripbox 160 which I had been using daily for at least a year I think.

    Developed a leak under the 510 and was loosing connection to the atty.

    Took apart and fixed better than new.
    Now has a kind of spring loaded 510 pin and no leaky.
    Took about 1/2 hour.

    Cleaned and rewicked a few tanks, made some more juice, messed around with a battery charger that isn't dependable anymore and tracked the new one on it's way to me.

    Checked out a new mod I heard about on VU and realized I need another mod about as much as I need another hobby. NOT.

    :D

    Yeah I am about modded out.
    Have to be a really good deal on one I like very well to get any more.
    Have 2 more White Pico Squeezes on the way...
    Have enough regulated mods and squeezes to last me 20 years at my current failure rate. And if I can keep on fixing them....

    Ya, I agree with that thought Robert. I'm really liking the Pico 75. I have three of them and a couple of replacement boards. Might get another Pico just for shits and giggles while the getting is good. Along with a couple of RX200's, a couple of older mods like a Sigelei 150, a Kbox Mini that WILL NOT DIE, a couple of older regulated mods, and a host of mech mods I think I can keep vaping for decades, I'm pretty much set for life.

    There is also the possibility something new might come along that will blow these out of the water. I'm good either way ... there are only so many ways to vaporise juice and if what's working now for me now becomes obsolete one day, well these will still keep me as happy as I am now :cool:

    Researched some more regulated squonk mods and I decided that I’m going to pickup a couple of pico squeezes because the price is good. Probably one higher end squonk mod and I’ll be done with mods unless something radically different comes out. Still looking at single coil attys to add to the stash. I’ve got more than enough dual coil.

    Ordered some VG & Clearly Grape flavoring from DIY Flavor Shack with my $25 contest winnings! Wish I wasn't so low on VG, would be been nice to try some more of their flavors, but I'm super excited about the Clearly Grape. I got it as a freeby on my last order from them & it was fantastic. Now for the three hard part...waiting.

    Thanks again @jj2!

    Isn't the Pico unregulated? Or am I missing something?

    Yeah the pico is unregulated. I want to get a couple to keep in the stash but I’m also looking for a couple of regulated. The capo may be one of the regulated I get because they are a decent price.

    I'll have to check out the capo. I currently using the VT Inbox 75. I like it, but the battery life is crap if I run it higher than 45W. As long as I keep it 45W or less I can make a single battery last 4-5hrs with heavy use.

    The capo has pretty decent reviews from what I’ve been reading. Multiple battery types is one of the things I like about it as well as the smaller size.

    The Pico 75 watt is regulated. Does a reasonable TC if you're into that, but I use it mainly in VW mode. Love the small size.

    Yep Pico 75W is a regulated non squonking mod. then there is the brand new Pico S also non squonking.
    The Pico squeeze is a non regulated mosfet squonk mod. Best buy for the money non reg squonker out there in my opinion.
    The Squeeze only fits 23mm and under attys. Not just a problem with hang overs but they hit the battery cap if larger than 23 mm.

    Wonder if they are going to make a Pico S squonk version?
    Many would like it as it accepts a larger atty and uses the new larger batteries.

    OHH wait I let the cat out of the bag. Is supposed to have my name on it and the PooPoo chipset in it.

    Yeah but now you’ll be able to go on a YouTube rant about how they stole your idea but that doesn’t matter because you have a double secret mod in the works already anyway.

    Put flavors on my DIY shelf. Uh-oh. Only about 60 flavors, and shelf is very nearly full. PG & VG aren't on there - shelf is too small to hold those larger bottles. Figuring-out time. Need a handled basket and a hook to hang it from, for PG & VG and the flavors I need for a recipe.

    I vaped while doing the lawn preparation for the new growing season and tracked my vape mail when I had a minute while filling my tank. Freaking USPS dropped my package.

    I just rinsed out 50, 10ML PET bottles I got on Ebay. They came in a taped up carboard box. Its like the bottles were the styrofoam peanuts lol. It had to be done, they had cardboard dust on em. For five bucks I aint complaining. They're the same as what Bullcity uses from what I can tell.

    picked up two more copper Kraken genesis atomizers on clearance (down to $8.00 each), to try a forced patina on the copper cap.
