Post here if you do NOT have a Caravela
« on: September 09, 2014, 07:23:40 PM »
The purpose of this thread is purely selfish - it's to make my life easier.  ;D  Every now and then I get wind of a Caravela up for sale at a reasonable price, and it makes me feel happy to steer it over to someone who hasn't got one. But when it happens, I find I am scouring the forum looking to see who has one and who does not - sometimes it takes hours because the bits and pieces are scattered everywhere. So just to save me search-time, please post here if you:

1) do not have a Caravela and
2) you want one so much your heart would burst if your wish came true and
3) you have no intention of ever selling your Caravela or parting with it once it sails home to you

Also - once you have posted in this thread, if fortune smiles on you and you become an owner, please come back to the thread and edit your post with the date and number Caravela you obtained. Thanks for making it easy for me... maybe someday your dreams will come true like mine did. :)

LOL no... you must meet all three qualifiers. And I mean "no one will have my Caravela even if they have to pry it from my cold, dead hands" kind of sentiment ;)  :D

Nice idea angel.

I meet second point. And I have feel it (thanks D)

Hope someone will live the same .....

And for the third point. I too much respect for the work of creator like Pedro too make profit on their work, like every body in this place.

May the dream of a dreamer be fulfilled
Wait patiently for a chance to catch a rope in order to get on the boat.
Be Happy, & never give up with a smile.
Luck will knock at your door, be ready !

Lol Vwls. The only way someone else will get their hands on my "Aqishimie baby" mod after I recieve it is either when I die, it gets stolen, or if I am nice enough to let my brother try it.

The purpose of this thread is just the opposite of selfish! You spending your own time trying to help others find a caravela of their own is just another of your many generous acts V.  This world in general needs more people like yourself and the other generous members here.
Oh yeah, I'm still on the hunt too!

Heya V,

I do not own a Caravela, and meet all 3. But I think S8 said it best, that Caravelas find their owners. Mine will find me one day! On that day, I will have found my perfect piece!

However I must disclose that it is still a goal of mine to kick the Nic, and eventually get out of vaping altogether. It won't happen anytime remotely soon, as a 30 yr habit dies hard, but still I felt it appropriate to disclose this as you did specify. That being said, I do think it would be appropriate at that time to offer it to someone on this forum that doesn't have one, of course with permission from Pedro, and by his terms. To me, that's the unspoken agreement when obtaining a Caravela, and everyone has my word that it will be honored.

Seeming they're all gone, and I can't pay $700, or $1000+ for a Caravela, the only way I'd obtain one is by someone else's kindness of selling at retail, or by charity auction I can afford. So for me to part with mine under any other circumstances would be disrespectful to the person who showed me kindness, and that's not who I am or what I'm about. It's just not my speed, man...

It seems like someone on this forum is always doing something for someone else. When I finally exit vaping, whenever that is, that's the way I want to "go out"... Doing something for someone else, like they have helped others on the forum. THAT is my speed...

I believe that is what the "Caravela Spirit" is all about, and it couldn't be done any other way. Of course, so long as they didn't mind having "MHatt" and an engraving of an octopus on it, as that would be part of my "dream 'Vela"... one can dream I suppose :)

So, yes I do meet all 3, and with full disclosure. Sorry I turned your thread into a novella, V, kinda got on a ramble there and once I started it just kept pouring out :( lol

In hopes of making up for it, I'm including a pic of a really cute puppy! His name is Hank.

Sorry for posting when I should not, but people hoping to own a Caravela need to understand that there are decent folks out there.

You hear of all the tales when mods are flipped by vapers that want to profit from other vapers, but what is not widely reported are the sales that take place involving sensible amounts. Don't give up hope, but be patient. Most importantly, don't give money to flippers as this only serves to perpetuate the whole problem.

It may take time, but you will all own one eventually :)

I meet all 3 prerequisites, and would love to be a proud owner one day.
