Hello from Salem, great city, shitty shops....this city need an enima....Keep it Cloudy!
I've found one shop that I like, they have 2 locations. Of course I'd never buy any hardware there, but the juice is reasonable and pretty good.

Morning Eivind, you talking about Valley Vapors? If so, they have a couple juices that taste pretty good, everything but the coils are overpriced like a motherfucker though. Not to mention the dude is a real fucking downer, he hates his life and it shows. Its depressing going in that shop, I walk out of there every time asking myself why the hell I keep going back...matter of fact, I just ordered a crap load of coils online so I don't have to go back ever lol.
If your talking about Elite....the youngster there makes some really good special juices, the manager blows, the chick is great and hot as hell and the owner can blow me...There is a new shop opening up in Keizer soon, Ill give her a chance.

Revised this.
Actually they came clean and admitted the guy who sccrewed up my mom's set up was not an employee or a vaper.

One day will go in and say hello to em.

Got a lead on a local mod maker that is just starting to produce em and am willing to go check em out.

Seems like the first thing everyone wants to do when they are new to vaping is work in a shop, which isn't useful because they are as inexperienced or more so than the customers they are dealing with. It's rather a shame too, because people are leaving shops without proper instruction of what they have purchased. Obviously there is an argument against the customer for making an uninformed purchase, but that's what the staff is for, to ease the transaction process if possible and prevent people being unhappy with their service after they've left the place of business.

Big ups to Vape Game 2 on Barbur, guys have it down pat. Get out there and meet the crew if you haven't already. If you're closer to Springfield check out their original location instead!

Nw lost my business, whoever was mixing on the last order went WAY overboard on the nic. the 12mg it was supposed to be was stronger than my 36.

I'm sorry to hear that.Earlier this year I bought the 120 ml bottle of NW tobacco and it is usually a pinkish color.What they sent me was totally clear and tasted like shit.I emailed them and told them what I just told you,and they sent me a replacement bottle the same day,and it was good.I emailed them back after receiving it and tried it,and thanked them for getting right on it,no muss,no fuss.Now,this has only happened to me once in the 2 plus years I've been buying the same juice from them.My advice to you is to call,or email them and tell them,and they should make it right by you,as they did for me.I have a feeling that they probably hired someone new that wasn't up to speed on the mixing.The only liquid I have been buying from them is their Northwest Tobacco flavor,and I buy the big bottle every month because my kids and grandkids love that,as I do.BTW,my kids are in their 30's and 40's,and my grandkids are both in their 20's,so it's cool.It keeps them off of analogs.I hope this helped...

They were awesome when I was ordering from them, this is what happened.
The week before I had ordered my normal 24 mg added a 36mg and moms 12. The 24 and 12 were both sent as smaller bottles. The only one I said anything about was the 12 and stated it clearly since it was not mine.
The replacement bottle showed up half empty due to the cap not being on tight or proper. I just would rather have spent my money else where, just little things added up for us to make the choice to move on.
Since going DIY she no longer gets headaches from to much nic and in fact cut her back to 9 without issue.

It sounds like that someone new to NWV just wasn't on the ball,but it sounds like you have a handle on mixing your own....good show!! I wish I could do that too but my hands shake to much to be anywhere near accurate,and it would cause a big mess,lol.It sounds like you have gotten some family members off of analogs,that's great.So far I've gotten two daughter,two grand daughter off of analogs,and one of my sons wants to kick the cigarette habit too.I just bought him a Vamo 5,a glassomizer,batteries and a charger to get him started.The revolution continues...

Ugh sorry about the hand thing, while not shaky here I have nerve damage in one that gives me fits.
I wish for the love of all that is holy I could remember where I got these wide mouth 30 ml bottles. Syringes with a wide bore blunt tip do make things easier.
I wonder.. a mod stand might work to hold the bottles and flavor bottles. THe only dicey thing I see would be the nic base but you could either get the grandkids to mix that and the base for you and them it is easy mix street.

I have a syringe with a blunt big bore,it ain't a pretty site when I tried to fill my 30ml bottle out of the big 120's.Believe it or not,my wife got me a small funnel to refill my bottles with,lol. Gettin old ain't for wimps,but it sure is getting tougher to smile at times :confused:

Beaverton boy here.

Fairly fresh from a six-plus year stint at ECF but bailed in the exodus. No regrets.

I remember back when I was your age; man, those were the golden years. Are you near SW?

WTH, Arlongkpr? You're late for the vape-meet that I just made up. :D
