I did it...

zeebrazeebra Posts: 3,174 ✭✭✭
I bought a humidor. This is my first one and I am getting rid of the zip lock bags. After purchasing a 50 count, I called the company back up and cancelled the order and switched it to the hundred count. Nothing pricy, but I'm sure you guys have seen it. It is the Vegas 5, 100 count huimi, paid $60 shipped, so not bad.

I will read some other threads on how to season it and how long do the beads last? Where do I put the distilled water? I think I just have too many questions and I will read up on em.

I just want to know what else do I need to buy?

Thanks

    Grats on the purchase. I think the beads can last quite a long time (years) if properly cared for. I don't know about the other stuff since I'm not a bead user, but there are tons of guys on here who swear by them and can probably help.

    NICE! Congrats on the purchase... I'm seasoning my new humi as we "speak"... I sent you a link in our ongoing Torch PM... it's got great seasoning info...

    Congrats on the new humi!! Just search around these forums for seasoning advice (if it's the link I think it is, robbyras sent you some good info).

    And for the love of God, please don't wipe down the humi - the 2 days you save isn't worth the risk of warping the wood

    Yep, it's on in the same... It's worked for me... I'm about 12 hours from staring to fill mine up... I will warn you though, if it's a glass top, it's almost impossible to walk by and not check it...

    Nice choice and believe me it will fill fast

    Thanks guys. Rob, got the PM, thanks for that info bro!

    I just said beads because thats what I kept seeing, but I wonder what other methods there are. I will check out the link that Rob sent me and I will search this forum as well.

    Woo Hoo, congrats my friend. I bought a 50 count at first a few months ago and now I'm looking at buying a 300 count. LOL.

    Save some room... I have a very strong feeling you may need it!

    Oh man, Evan. What did you do?

    Congrats on your first humidor! There are so many threads with good advice, we really don't need to comment. Season her properly, get some good beads, and watch your 100 count fill up very quickly, lol.

    No $hit right?! haha I worked until 11:30 PM on Tuesday and had to be up for the usualy 6:30am PT!

    Well, as soon as I have some more free time to put some packs together, some mofo's are getting BOMBED!

    Thanks. Yes, I did the same thing, but I knew it had not shipped, I just cancelled it. After reading everyones response, I had to. The 300 count..wow, you should have fun filling that up.

    I will read up on the wipe down. I did read that to take a wet sponge with distilled water and wipe it down...I'm guessing you mean the same thing, but not to do it. I will read up more, thanks for the info.

    Yeah, the only reason people advise wiping down the wood with a wet sponge is to speed the seasoning process, and IMHO the 2 days you might save just isn't worth the risk of warping the wood

    "Enjoy and watch how fast it fills"

    I know, I keep hearing that and its scary! Heard that from every person bro. Its like when people have a Mac and they all say, "you will never go back to windows" ...and they were correct too!

    Thanks

    I'm going to try my first picture now, let me know if it did not show up.

    That's a pretty cool design. I usually don't really care for humis with logos on them, but this one is nicely done.

    Nice! I like the humidor. And your new avatar - dayum!
