    This is a half eaten 6x6 round bale of hay. I baled it July 3 2013. 3 days after I misplaced my Provari.

    This is where the cows found it for me. Inside dark hole in first pic.

    removed broke off carto threads, installed battery from Provari I was vaping at the time. And ,,,

    [​IMG][/URL]Dropped in pasture, hay raked twice, wind rowed, possibly ran over by tractor / implements 3 - 4 times, went through baling machine, bale spiked and moved several times, sat outside in all sorts weather conditions since July 2013.
    The battery was dead / 2.4v, Ibtank didn't survive, Provari still functions like the day it was new / flawlessly.
    Priceless.

    Hay is for Horses, Straw is for Cows. Wrong feed for the wrong animal, that's why you lost your PV :).

    this definitely tops the run over by the car, dropped from the skyscraper incidents.

    :laugh: I nominate this one for 1st place in the "Provari Survived" category. 1st place in the "Rest In Peace" category still goes to the one run over by the lawn mower... mainly because it's the only one I've seen die, and it did it so thoroughly.

    Both of them have been stepped on by cows, calves and a horse or two several times, usually it just mashes them into the soil, so far. Of course the carto usually breaks off and the tanks have about a 50% survival rate.
    I don't carry any vape stuff when working with the bulls.

    The one I just found (that was baled) has actually been on light duty since its disappearance compared to what it would have endured from my daily use.

    They are not indestructible, my first one was smashed flat while loading a track excavator onto the trailer.

    StormFinch, both have survived worse mishaps than being baled.

    Cool story, Topwater!!

    I found my hub's wedding ring in the horse corral this summer, 11 years after he lost it out there when he was so skinny from chemo treatments....hardly a scratch on it! (I know, not really related to ecigs, altho he was having chemo due to smoking-related lung cancer...) :blink:

    When this one started with "This is a half eaten 6x6 round bale of hay." I was expecting a completely different "ending."

    Wow, what a place to lose a ProVari. Not surprised it still works.

    Amazing and hilarious! I will remember that story for a long time. You should tell Provape; I see the beginning of a series of ads, sort of like "takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin' "

    Send an email with these pics to Provape, because this HAS to be a testimonial-grade story for their website.
