    I learned something during this young vaping journey of mine. Truth be told, I've been struggling with Get Your Kicks juice. It's something that I really want to like as it has the bubble gum flavor that I crave. It has a strange taste to it that I thought was a higher nicotine level than 3mg and very well still may be. When vaping at 45 watts, some hits were harsh and lacked taste, and as I continued to vape, some were better tasting and not as harsh. I thought it may be due to the coil getting hotter after a few hits on it. So I set the watts up to 75 and shazam!!! It now tastes like I hoped it would. Much better bubble gum flavor and almost all the harshness is gone. I'm thinking some juices may need to be vaped at a higher wattage to get the correct flavor profile. I am now very satisfied with Get Your Kicks juice and it will be reordered.

    Cleaned my tank and coils, fresh wick. Made an order yesterday for some wire and made use of Lightning Vape's 30% off sale. Ordered some spool tamers off FT that are likely too small for the spools I ordered so thinking about grabbing some elastic from wally world or something. It's cheap enough, then I'll make them longer if needed. Restocked on 26ga and 28ga stainless, 250ft of 36ga and 40ga ni80 to play with, 500ft of 38ga ni80 and some .3x.1 and .4 x.1 ni80 ribbon to give framed staples a whirl. All in all around 1400ft but should do me awhile and saved around $17.

    Built and wicked my new-to-me Wasp Nano (thanks @IcepickMaker84 !). Don't like the coil I put in it, was in too much of a hurry and should have just waited until I had more time.

    Happy with the RDA, though; this blue resin looks nice with a small tapered drip tip on it.

    Well I was close. 24ga N80 parallel, 3mm, 4 double wire wraps came to 0.23 ohms. I have it on a VV Pulse mech now and it's quite happy. I've switched back to CB V2 from rayon, and it's taking a little getting used to.

    For some reason I seem to be a bit apprehensive when trying new things. Just one of my many messed up qualities I guess...:D

    Nah, you've fit in here so well, I forget that you're still fairly new to all this. When you start hanging out here, things start to speed up, too (in case you hadn't noticed). :teehee:

    Haven't done much in a few days. Refilled my berserker V1.5 a few times and bought a couple ripstick pods this morning.

    I was just telling @BobsHere yesterday that my clouds bro set ups haven't been satisfying me lately. Idk what's going on!

    edit: I sometimes daydream about switching to pods and buying juice instead of making it. Living the simple life.

    huh, just talked to a coworker and he said he's having the same issues. Vape doesn't taste all that great, not satisfying, Slow ramp up times...

    Now i'm wondering if its the humidity or allergies screwing with us

    Mind control rays emitted by Chinese mods impact the taste of the juice.

    So, when I am gaming on my PC I vape, and the vapor always drifts to right in front of the TV. Hubby is supportive of my vaping so never said anything, but I knew it kinda bugged him. Well I got out my little fan from Liionwholesale and placed it so my vapor now goes behind me instead of towards the TV :) Works great!

    I got one of those fans back at xmas myself. I see that yours is plugged in... do you ever find, when it's unplugged, that it moves itself across whatever surface it's sitting on? Granted, I had the fan on high when I noticed this behavior; it's like it creates a "rocket" effect, pushing itself backward by the forward velocity of the fan!

    You didn't get a 1 of 1. I too hope you like it. I think I would no matter the color, once I got it shined up to give it that richness, depth. I would like the chip and color interface, same as Lustro w/o the led.

    Weird. Mine has propelled itself right off my dresser several times. Since I needed to be in the kitchen at the time, I finally just had to turn the silly thing off, so it didn't propel itself onto the floor and, I dunno, start a fire or something, from frontal contact with the carpet.

    When she said it was 8pm, it was 11:11 EDT time... so apparently she's on the west coast.

    But it is a dry heat.
    Try the 83 it got to here today and 80+% humidity.
    usually it is at least down to 70% humidity.

    So far today, just vaped a bit.

    Pondering all this heat discussion and recalling soldiers off in places it can get to 120 F in the shade. I just shake my head and hope to stay where I can get a moderate 55 to 75 F with just adequate humidity. Hard to tell anymore how much longer any of us have. I'll just enjoy what I got. :)

    Still, can only say I've vaped today. Waiting on mod for review, although not holding my breath. It does allege bullet proof polycarbonate. I was looking forward to testing such a claim. Also waiting on stipend to arrive, and some package from AK scheduled to be here Thursday. :) Think I'm getting more of a monster than I'm aware. It'll be alright though, sure enough.
