    I'm going this myself. Please tell me if I should have just bought the calibration kit.

    Put the seasoning packs in a large zip lock bag (freezer). Will check in 36 hours to get the +/- RH reading, meaning it should read 82, and whatever it does say is the +/- future reference.

    I would buy the kit. It is a gurantee accurate. you can then Pay it forward to some one else who might need it too.

    If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how are you going to find time to do it right the second time? Ordering the kit now.

    The question now, having opened and placed the seasoning packets (2 as per boveda's instructions), do I remove the seasoning packets and toss them? Or leave them in for the requisite 14 days w/o the hygrometer, placing it in once calibrated?

    I would leave them for a bit. You can always level it out later

    Got the kit, reading puts it -2% Boveda indicator. Regardless if this is the Boveda or hygrometer, its good to know.

    Thanks for all the help guys, seasoning should be done it another week, and then it's time to accumulate some nice sticks!

    I can split the humi into 3 sections, does anyone have suggestions for splitting stick ups or does it not matter how they stack next to eachother?

    Default try these guys

    I built a walk-in humidor in my home. I went to Vigilant Humidors out of NH and bought their biggest humidifier called the Guardian 500. It has worked great for me with zero issues in the last 3 years. It is an active system and holds nearly 6 gallons of distilled water. So when I leave for a week or two on vacation, my stash is still safe.

    check them out
