    Good morning everyone. I'm the kiwi, and I finally haz a REO!

    Got myself a copper vein LP grand + 2 spare bottles + brass button cover + 2 spare springs. I've been thinking of getting one for a looong time, and finally bit the bullet!

    But alas, the mail man came by at 9+ am on friday, tapped on the door once, and pretty much disappeared into the wind. Tried to hunt her down along her mailing route + drove down to the post office at noon and 4pm. No bueno. and so i had to wait till this morning (1 hr to opening time!!!). It was supposed to be the perfect back-from-iraq-depolyment vapemail. GROWLS.

    Oh mail man, you have tried to stop me from getting my REO, but I will not be stopped.

    Currently have bottom fed Atomic, Helios and a cyclone AFC all built and ready for my first Reo vape!

    Also, shoutout to:

    1) Quigsworth: Ah, my first taste of kindness in REOville. I had refused to get a REO mainly because of the lack of availability of BF attys with AFC (this was before Rob released all the new RMs). Then good ole Quigsworth just came along and offered to help me BF the atomic and helios. At no charge. and refused to let me pay for shipping back to me. Good ole Quigsworth help give the final push, and I was all in. Thanks Quigs!

    2) Chowderhead: For the perfectly done cyclone afc BF

    And of course, pictures or it didn't happen. I will be back with a photo once I've picked it up from the PO.

    Can't wait to squonk for my first time!


    ETA: oh and I haz a new can of rustoleom clear enamel spray to coat my REO! :D

    Welcome to REOville. Forecast is cloudy, but we like it that way. When you get your REO, hug your other e-cigs. They will miss you.

    Ah, don't worry about that! That will still look killer. I've got a black wrinkle Grand, and the finish is great, and matched with that copper door, will be awesome!

    Hey look at it this way, gives you a good reason to get a copper vein Reo with black wrinkle door ;)

    Congrats and enjoy:)

    Ok well.

    NOONE ever told me how TINY the REO grand is!! Oh gosh. That thing is SMALL. I'm very pleasantly surprised. Someone needs to help Rob take some better pictures and show how small it is. Fits perfectly in my hands.

    And the fire button? Oh gosh. The throw is perfect. It's so nice I've been pressing on it for the past few minutes.

    Currently clear coating my door. Once that's done I'll begin vaping and of course share the picture.

    I sense a copper vein with black wrinkle door on the horizon.

    Are they making contact with the 510? Start without an oring and screw the atty down till it's snug then try.

    Alright. It's working like a beast now. Turns out I didn't screw the atties tight. Didn't expect to be tightening it down thaaaat much

    Squonking is a tad harder than expected. But I'm sure I'll get used to it.

    I love the button. Vaping on a BF atomic
