Meet Mt Baker Vapor: Josh Hanna

My name is Josh Hanna, and I met my wife in 2007.  She was eighteen and about to graduate, and I was nineteen and managing a camera store.  I was smoking about a pack a day.  I enjoyed doing it while socializing and driving.  It gave me something to do.  After a month of dating my wife, she said she would like me to quit because she hated the way I smelled.  I cold went turkey after hearing that.  It was not really hard for me to quit, but every now and then I wanted one.  

Fast forward to January of 2014.  I’m hanging out with a friend from middle school named Star and he is vaping.  He showed me  what his mechanical mod did, and let me try it.  I fell in love with vaping right then. He actually gave me my first mod. which was a Kamry K100 mod.  I loved this and used it all the time.  It was about 6 months until I finally got into box mods.  My friend’s shop, NexGen Vapo, was selling the Sigelei 150 Watt box for 75$, so I grabbed one.  Regulated was the new me and it was awesome!  I still buy mods every now and then, but have been stuck on Sigelei’s brand since then.  GWAR Spew and Bloodbath are my ADVs, but I will vape almost any fruit flavor with a little bit of menthol.

A little bit about me: I have been with my wife for nine years and married to her for eight.  We have three kids.  One boy, Bryson who is seven years old, and two girls named Channing and Raelynn, who are five and two. We do a camping trip at least once a year to a new lake in Arizona.  This lets the kids get out and away from the television. It is really nice to disconnect sometimes.  We also like to go to festivals whenever we can. The last one we went to was an air show out at Luke Air Force Base which was a lot of fun!

I like to cook at home.   I do almost all of the cooking at home.  A few years ago, my wife bought me a smoker, called a Traeger, and I have been experimenting with that ever since.  My favorite item to cook would be a nice piece of beef.  Either a chuck roast or a brisket.  Have a half a day to an all day smoke going on.  If I was not here at Mt Baker Vapor, I would probably be trying to find a high-end restaurant to manage.  

My other hobby is playing video games.  I have been playing since I was really young.  I play them on my Xbox One and my PC.  There was a meme that said “Why live one life when you can live many.”  That’s one of the reasons I find games so intriguing.  You play as the character but when playing them, you are them.  

I am an open book and love to speak with everyone so if you have any questions or want to talk, post a comment below and I will be sure to answer. 🙂

    Nice to meet you! Glad to have more awesome people in the MBV family! Your cooking hobby, does it effect what you like to vape? Have you experimented with making your own juice? I’ve heard a lot of cooks like to play with making juice. Maybe you’ll have to give some of your pallet’s expertise to a couple of new MBV flavors! (Buying my husband a smoker for Father’s Day)
