I met Summer Dawn while on the JonboyUSMC thread on E-Cigarette Forum. Her videos on the Lava Tank are an awesome resource, especially to those that are considering one for the first time. Summer’s videos include reviews, how to’s, and instructions on how to maximize your chances during a Lava Tank sale. Follow her instructions, and your sure to score on sale night.
Summer not only sheds light on the Lava Tank, she also provides detailed reviews of E-liquids.
Welcome to Modding Mavericks, where I introduce you to the people behind the vaping scenes. Summer Dawn is a reviewer/blogger, and what I call, “The Lava Tank Princess”.
Most days you can find her hanging out with the LavaCorps @ ECF.
I “happily” introduce you to Summer Dawn, from Vape Happy!

More about Summer Dawn
My name is Summer Dawn, known to many as SD on the ECF. I’m definitely on the younger side of the vaping community, and I’m perfectly satisfied with that. As far as I’m concerned, I very well may have saved myself a lot of grief. I’m a Chicago, IL native currently living in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
I am in a committed relationship and plan to marry my fiancee in the spring of 2013. I come from a large family and have four half siblings (two sisters, two brothers) and two younger brothers.
I love everything Disney and anything related to the Japanese culture.
I started smoking at age 13.
Having lived in Wyoming for a good portion of my life, it kind of comes with the package. Smoking is a daily part of life for a large portion of Wyoming residents and walking down the street in downtown Jackson, it’s hard to miss a person outside just about every establishment lighting up. Most of my friends smoked, and the pieces unfortunately came together.
My family was devastated. My father has never smoked in his life and my mother, who had smoked for ten years, quit as soon as she found out she was pregnant with her first child.
At the time, I had zero desire to quit and so instead focused my energy on hiding it.
At age eighteen, my aunt was able to quit a forty five year smoking habit. Around the same time, my doctor diagnosed me with chronic bronchitis. The horrendous realities of smoking that had so long remained buried in the back of my mind were suddenly brought to the forefront. I found it impossible to fall asleep, wake up or get through my day without a hacking cough. While the side effects of smoking hit me rather quickly, I find it a huge blessing as I may never have had the desire to quit otherwise.
I tried just about everything to kick the habit.
I attempted to go cold turkey three times and the longest I lasted was just under two months. Patches, lozenges and gum were both a nightmare and a waste of time and money. Due to pre-existing medical conditions, my doctor forbade me from using Chantix. After a three year battle, I decided to give a disposable electronic cigarette a go. Over the next several months, I found myself more and more drawn to vaping over analogs until the day my mother purchased me a Cig2o starter kit. And the rest is history.
I was blessed enough to find ECF within two months of switching strictly to vaping. I was tired of the 808’s and wanted something more. I found myself searching for reviews and suggestions for intermediate PV’s, and found everything I needed in this miraculous community. In a matter of weeks, I had started a small collection of PV’s and had found my favorite juice supplier (Copper Creek) and the answer to ultimate stress free vaping, JonboyUSMC’s Lava Tanks.
If it weren’t for the stress and maintenance free vaping (not to mention beauty) that comes with using Lava Tanks, and the miraculous community that is the ECF, I can say with confidence that I never would have been able to stick to vaping permanently.
I am now eight months smoke free, and never looking back. Vape happy!
