    Yeah my dad moved us here back in 1982 from Ohio. I would love to get out of here but neither me or my mom drive and I need to stay in CA. so I don't get less money on my disability check. Would love to move to northern CA. But will have to do what I can :) I have not had much luck with the beads so would a boveda work and what rh% and how many in the cooler? Thanks for the help

    Listen to @webmost! He really knows what he's talking about. Just be ready for a whole new hobby. It's addictive! I have to say though, there's nothing quite like smoking a stick you just rolled.  :)

    Course not. One cooler separate bags. One sock full of kitty litter does a whole cooler and way cheaper. I suggest the sock cause Needles is so extreme.

    Had to look up padawan.

     I'm no expert. Take a look what some of those other fellers roll, like bliss and marcl. Put the pros to shame.

    Amazon doesn't sell it.  I think you have to get it at Petsmart.  I haven't been able to find it locally.

    You definitely don't want scented.

    What is up!
    Some time back I started using these White Gel Water Crystals.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/White-Gel-Water-Crystals-1-Pound-Vase-Bowl-Filler-1LB-Jar-Makes-16-Gallons-/162132352652?hash=item25bfd75e8c:g:PNYAAOxyNW9SLOvz

    They are really clean and go a long way. One of these pound jugs make 16 gallons of beads. I use a KFC mac and cheese container with a few slits in the top. I probably fill the beads about half or 3/4 full.

    They really are used for maintaining humidity in resting or aging finished sticks.

    Working tobacco for rolling is different. I will use large and medium tubs misting mainly, the insides of the tubs. Allowing time for absorption.

    Yes, I think Webmost was trying out the 84 boveadas. Any silica-type unscented  litter will work. Walmart typically has them.

    I didn't measure a pound, but it should be close.
