The Packing List. (Otherwise known as “What to pack for Vapebash?!?”)

Howdy vapor folks!  So it’s been a short minute since my last blog and I thought I would start the excitement for the upcoming Vapebash and then realized this could really apply to any traveling situations.  So I’m excited. I’ve been watching plane ticket prices (Vaping on a budget includes good plane ticket prices too folks! lol)  and made my reservations and next I need to figure out what in the world am I going to take with me.  Since we are actually arriving on Wednesday my list may be a bit bigger than most. Then again I have a 2 bag per person maximum in order to have have baggage fees  so it better not be too big.  Why Wednesday?  Well the DH hasn’t been to Chicago before and I thought we could take a mini-vacation while we are there.  And it’s his first flight…hmmm maybe I should take something to knock him out…a frying pan possibly? Anyway just a little history before we get to the essentials.  We attempted to go to Vapercon back in October.  Unfortunately my DH fell off our porch and crushed his face.  We were going to the meet and then on to Myrtle Beach.  By the time the ER sent him by helicopter to a big city ER and they decided to do nothing, we left very late for our trip and ended up at the hotel about 4 am.  Exhausted and aggravated, we got up the next morning took a quick look and went on to Myrtle so he could lay down and enjoy some relaxation.  (The finale of that story is we found a doctor when we got back to WV and he had some surgery about a month or so later re-breaking his face so the cheekbone wouldn’t collapse.) So we (at least I) am really looking forward to Vapebash.  Now, what in the world should we pack?

I’m not so worried about the clothes and hygiene stuff…that’s a given along with my ticket, id and various forms of money.  Just the vaping supplies.

Being a budget vapor, I don’t have many devices to worry about.  A Vamo and a couple twists so those will all go with us.  I have a few empty small bottles that I can fill with my favorite all day vapes and since I hear that sometimes the pressure of the plane makes bottles leak I don’t want to take the big bottles with me.  No need to waste.  I definitely want to take some clean drip atties with me so I can try some new flavors.  Now here is a way to save a couple dollars.  I have a few old atties  used just a few times.  If I take some flavor eraser with me then I can reuse those atties instead of buying new ones.  A bottle is about 10 bucks.  Plus I can take apart those old cartomizers from back in my beginning vape days and make a few atties if I need more.  Now I have to remember batteries and the charger.  Dead batteries don’t vape well.  Q-tips.  I use those all the time to clean that extra juice out of my tips.  A couple empty clearos and maybe my carto tank.  Some cards that let the airline people know it’s just vapor.  Can’t be too careful.  Now some people would add disposable drip tip covers so they can let other people taste their juice.  I don’t know anyone so I’m not expecting someone to just randomly come up to me and say “Hey let me try that!”  So lets summarize this list a bit.


  • Vamo and twists  (or your choice of vaping device of course)
  • small bottles of all day juices
  • drip atties and some modified cartos
  • flavor eraser
  • Q-tips
  • vaping cards
  • plastic baggies to pack the juice in so no leakage
  • a small pack of kleenex (I like to drip sometimes but it can get messy if you aren’t careful)
  • drip tip covers (optional)
  • batteries and charger
  • tanks (your choice of kind)

I think that about covers it.  What does your list look like?  And have you ever had any trouble flying or maybe some tips about flying with vaping gear?


Have a great one folks and of course Vape on a Budget!

    i like how you plan!
    and gosh… i think that I need to think about this… i can drive to Chicago…
    also did you consider things that you might want to show off?
    Also how do you convert a carto into an atty?
    Did I read that right?
    either way, let us know how vaping on the plane works!

  2. brock on March 12th, 2013 1:30 am

    i like that

  3. Flux83 on March 12th, 2013 1:30 am

    I wish I could go. You all hate the west coast don’t you?

  4. Tony on March 12th, 2013 1:42 am

    Really nice set up.

  5. DemonFire on March 12th, 2013 2:05 am

    Thanks ya’ll! Tiffjamesnjj, there are some very sweet videos on how to do this out on youtube. It’s fairly easy. Just separate the polyfill from the air tube with a needle (being careful not to poke the air tube) lift it a a little bit and pull it out very gently. Then drip a few drops on the walls of the carto and a couple in the middle. No leaking and vapes fine. Check out TeamK808 videos on youtube. They are probably the easiest to see exactly how to do it. Other than my Vamo and a wood mod I don’t really have any other gear to show off other than the DH’s twists lol.

    Vape lash 🙂

    I always kick myself if I leave home for a few days and forget to bring a small flathead screwdriver, and a neele or dental pick along. I’ve had at least one occasion where I’ve needed to pull up a post and had no tool on hand to perform the duty.

    I’d say other than that maybe some spare cash to spend at VapeBash. I’ve never been to a meet of any kind, and would love to do it one day. Have fun at VapeBash, and make sure to meet up with the ECA crew while you’re there!

  12. brock on March 12th, 2013 3:17 pm

    i would love to go to one

  13. DemonFire on March 12th, 2013 5:16 pm

    Great idea Mongrel! I’ll remember that! And I definitely want to meet up with the crew!

  14. morrinb on March 12th, 2013 5:25 pm

    I wanna go! Oh well, I have to many other trips planned, that’ll have to wait I guess.

  15. slap_maxwell on March 12th, 2013 5:36 pm

    Hah…I remember my very first flight; was about 18 yo, scared witless, knew that life was over already. Naturally, I enjoyed it so much in the end I’ve probably logged a couple of million miles since then. Enjoy the bash!

  16. John "Shub" Fellhoelter on March 12th, 2013 7:57 pm

    I’d love to go… I wish I had the time or method to attend something like that… Even Vapestock which is only like 200 miles away..

    Batteries, Batteries, Atties, Food!

  17. Danielle on March 12th, 2013 8:38 pm

    Great blog. I’d love this kind of detail if I were going. (I don’t go many places..but when I do I’m always so freaked out that I’m forgetting something)

  18. Michelle on March 13th, 2013 12:08 am

    Q-Tips are a must

  19. Tyler on March 13th, 2013 1:42 am

  20. muertala on March 13th, 2013 3:09 am

    Ok you got me with flavor eraser. I’m curious to know what that is.

  21. Sonar505 on March 13th, 2013 3:44 am

    Not planning any trips soon but will have to look back on this when I do. Thanks

  22. ManuDawg on March 13th, 2013 8:00 am

    Sounds like your set! Have fun and no accidents or mishaps this time.

  23. bybees3 on March 13th, 2013 10:39 am

    Are we there yet???

  24. MrsB3 on March 13th, 2013 11:42 am

    When is Vapebash?

  25. brock on March 13th, 2013 1:19 pm


  26. DemonFire on March 13th, 2013 7:13 pm

    April 12th & 13th is Vapebash. Then there is a meet in Charleston WV on June 21-22, 2013 that they are just starting to set up so spread the word. And Flavor Eraser is a liquid by fuzion that you put a couple drops in your atties and blow it out. It takes all the previous flavor out of the atty so you can drip new flavor.

  27. MrsCasey on March 14th, 2013 8:37 am

    So organized, I love it! I hope you have a great time at Vape Bash.

  28. imtheboss on March 17th, 2013 12:22 am

    Nice idea mate!

  29. Chad on March 18th, 2013 8:23 am

    This is how I pack to go to my mother-in-laws. Plus some earplugs and whiskey.

  30. slap_maxwell on March 18th, 2013 6:49 pm

    Earplugs and whiskey? That’s what I take to Monday staff meetings where I work.

  31. TheCrookedOne on March 20th, 2013 4:00 pm

    Everything would go 🙂

    of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content
