    hookah help!

    Keep in mind what I am coming up with guesses, because I am not there. Mya's tend to need to be washed before smoking sometimes they have oil and residue in them. Give it a good scrub with Dawn dish soap and some good brushes in a bath tub. Let them soak for a bit before scrubbing it out, let it air dry after in the sun.

    hookah help!

    Well 95% of hookah is from the bowl up. You might want to test for leaks in the hookah itself. Set it up like you would without the bowl. Put your hand over the top of the stem to seal it and take a pull on the hose if you get any air start tracking it down.
  3. Sorry to here it Riv! I'm single now too, lost my kids and in a depression that would kill most. But I am here today. Hit me up if you need anything!

    Mat for shisha

    I don't use a fireproof one, but I went a bought a cheap black hand towel at Walmart to put under mine to help with vibration and stray pieces of coal.
  5. It was originally designed by Tangiers and Called a Super Chief. It is originally designed to be packed all over so it's a combination phunnel and Egyptian. But I typically just pack the phunnel portion and smoke that way to save on shisha. If it's that harsh add more tobacco or less heat. Cut your cocos in half
  6. They don't really make them. Multi hose option for me is only Mya Saray. There are plugs to put in unused hose ports but not check valves. If I find a vendor with them, I will let you know.
  7. Well I remember Baja a long time ago, Loved the wooden boxes, but I have seen rumblings... looks like they are coming back!
  8. No experience with dobacco. Orange and Kiwi is always a nice mix if the kiwi has a twist of mint in it like I guess... it will be a really nice mix. Baileys and Strawberry should do well also!

    A lot of factors... but it sounds like you think if the tobacco touches the foil it is a bad thing. If there is an air gap between the foil and shisha, the air becomes super heated and will burn the shisha, and kill the flavor. Pack more. What brand of shisha are you using?
  12. my insight isn't that novel, I just love smoking hookah.
  13. Since I have been out of the game for 2 years I have been going through my files of websites. My list of US retailers.... 55% are no longer active. Saw Blaze Shisha is gone... didn't Ron Jeremy endorse them? Just started checking my international list... man I am scared. Are deleted 2 out of the first 10. Tangiers Forum gone. Nakhla bought out and hard to find. Texas still has their high tax on hookah tobacco so I can't buy anything from the state H-S and Texas Hookah are still off my purchase list. Even the Arminian store here is $20 for a 50g pack of Prince. I use to buy it for 2!!! Just chatted with H-S and Romman might be out of the biz!!! I don't know if I can live without Ivory Coast!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What Are You Reading?

    Well I have been on a reading trip lately. I read an article a while back about the 30 books you should read before you are 30. With 6 months left, let's just say I got a late start and won't make that list. http://www.divinecaroline.com/49804/102633-30-books-everyone-read-30#1 So what are you guys reading. Yeah I know, you should be reading. I think reading in school ruining reading in general for me. Forced to do anything usually ruins it for you. So what are you reading? I just finished "The Prince" by Machiavelli It was interesting. Machiavelli examines power struggles and conquering using the term "Prince" as the man in power or seeking power. It saddens me when you look on what people have down and what really does work to conquer and gain power. For those of you guys looking to climb the corporate ladder this is probably an invaluable book for you. I am starting "In Your Dreams" by Tom Holt A Continuation of his book "The Portable Door." Imagine if Harry Potter was written for adults and make it a lot darker and a few drops of insanity. First one was amazing read it in a week during Christmas last year. There is one more in the series "You Don't Have to Be Evil to Work Here, But it Helps" The only 3 books he has written that actually build off each other. I have "The Millionaire Next Door" Lined up next.

    Hello Humans

    Welcome to the forum! I am trying to pump up the activity around here!
  20. HJ has it or did yesterday. If not I am sure John can get if for you while you are there.
  21. i have flown with a hookah, you usually get stopped and checked but it's no big deal. Don't pack quicklights. I would recommend picking up coals here in the states just to avoid the hassle. Traveling with tobacco is an issue with the TSA internationally, but if you do pick it up here and fly domestically it's no big deal. Smoking in parks is usually fine unless they specifically forbid on their signs. Where are you flying into, can give you some idea on local shops possibly.
