    Hi Everyone,

    My wife and I will be attending and look forward to meeting you all.

    Not sure what to bring. If anyone wants to try something, I've got the new GGTS AVS (auto juice feeder), Double Barrel Silver Bullet, GG Double Slim usually set up outputting 8.4v with NotCig's Terminator mounted running a 5.2 ohm 6v Ikenvape HV901 atty (my wife calls this "The Scepter"), The Buzz varivolt mod, Altsmokes BB and a Hello 16 running an Ikenvape 2 ohm LR atty (permanently attached to my neck). Please let me know.

    And Kurt, I'm hoping for your advice on how best to saturate eliquid with some prized herbs and flavors - I've got 30 or so of these herbs under pure grain alcohol extracting right now (1:1 ratio, for 2 months total, so far).

    I was joking with Isaac (Ikenvape) that I've got so many atomizers from him (about 300) that I can't even lift my deep sea Open Water tackle box anymore, so I'll probably leave that behind and just bring a few mods. Isaac did say he and Val would attend.

    Again, I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!

    And thanks ecigg for organizing this,

    JTF

    Sure, bring whatever you like. We can have a sorta of show and tell. I would be be really interested to see how this terminator performs. Looks pretty interesting!

    It sounds like the outcome is going to be pretty good.

    We are really excited to meet everyone!

    Hey JTF!

    Sounds cool! Would be happy to talk about it. I do have some thoughts on it. My tobacco essence flavoring is a hot VG extraction. Depending on your herbs, PGA might work great, and make a nice flavor/thinning liquid, or it might taste too "green" and plant-like. If the liquid color is very green, that may be the case. Looking forward to chatting about it, and I would be interested in test-driving your buzz or other high-tech PVs. I'll be bringing some of my DIY VG juices for people to try or trade.

    Thanks Kurt!

    Yes, I've got about 6 of the herbs under VG extraction - what a gooey mess; don't know how I'll ever filter it. I've found VG doesn't filter well at all. But "hot VG" as you say, I could see could make the filtration easier! Veddy interesting. And for sure, I do have some deep green colors in some of those jars. I did order in a large number of flavors from all the vendors in hopes of finding a combination to go with the herbs.

    Clove works well with Lobelia, for instance. I also want to make a super energy vape using Guarana seeds (about 3 times the caffeine as in coffee), Kola Nut, and other high powered herbs. Don't know yet how I'm going to flavor them - but at least the liquid isn't green in those. :toast:

    I'm also especially interested in Lobelia, St. John's Worth, Passion Flower and Valerian Root. After the full three months of steeping (shaking them well every two days) the mixing fun begins - in a few weeks time. btw, my extractions are so strong now, I can hold up a dropper full and you can't see through it, whereas the same store bought herb tincture looks as clear as a bell! So, of course, I've just got to make sure I don't kill too many atties perfecting these mixtures!

    And I'll pack the Buzz. If you'd like, bring a 3 ohm atty and prepare to hit the sweet spot at 4.5 or 4.6 volts!

    Look forward to speaking together,

    JTF

    Likewise, definitely! This will be lots of fun! I do know some about the herbs you mention. Probably best to talk in person, rather than get the FDA in a dander by posting details here. Let just say not all herbal alkaloids are best inhaled. Or heated to coil temps. If you have structures of active ingredients in print form and bring them, like from Wiki, we can talk in detail. I won't have time before then, but it is as you say veddy interesting. Many of these herbal remedy molecules rely on sugar groups to be active, and heating and vaporizing them will likely be a problem. St Johns is one. But no one is keeping you from spiking your coffee! :2cool:

    SilverStrings, don't worry about bringing stuff. Being a newer vaper is probably the best to be at these meets because you get to try other people's equipment and juices. Great place to learn and try before you buy!

    Will be leaving in a few hours. Hope to see you all there!

    Ok car is fixed! Looks like we'll be there afterall. I was hoping I'd have some stuff to bring to share but I placed my orders a little late and nothing has arrived yet. Sooo I'll be travelling light.

    I do have a bunch of flavors I'm not going to touch though that I can put up on the freebie table if we have one of those this time.

    Double joker power!!

    See you guys soon!

    Thanks guys for holding this for us! Definitely gives more validation that we are not the only "weirdos". Time always goes by so fast at these things and I wish there were more time to talk to everyone and try more stuff out! Always vape overload but so much fun!

    As always I met great people and learned something new. Thanks for the pics VaporPhoxxe. I took some with my new phone but some didn't turn out so good cuz I'm still learning how to use it. Special thanks to Gunjji!); You truly embody the pay it forward spirit!

    Here's the couple good ones I got:
