Execept for the people I've converted and the mall kiosk guy I haven't found one single Vaper out there. And in San Antonio a city of nearly 2 million people that's really sad...

Yeah, it would be cool if we could get every smoker to either quit or vape. It would be a healthier world.

I have yet to meet anyone out in public that is vaping in front of me. I have converted many people though. I also sell ego's and juice to people at work. So hopefully it will start taking off more often. I have gone into some of the local tobacco shops since my wife still likes to have a ryo menthol from time to time and I vape in those shops and the guys in there are always asking if it works. I let them know that I kicked the habit about a year ago and they are surprised. I remind them that it is because they are selling "crap" ecigs, lol. I try and educate them but most of the time it doesnt work. I think I should start an actual vape shop here in town. There are a lot of people to convert in large military towns.

Keep in mind, those tobacco shops are making their money by selling tobacco. If they start selling eGo's and juice, then they are hurting their own business. To me, it's not surprising that they only sell the "crap" ecigs.

I have no reason to go hang out at Vaporesence (the only real shop in my area), but if there were something similar in a bar where other vapers hung out, I'd go visit, see their mods, drink a beer, etc.

I actually ran into a guy here locally when I was at autozone.. he was vaping a sparkplug. other than that, none. I do know there are others here that vape, in one of the restaurants I frequent they tell me there are others who vape in there too. and smokeless delites headquarters are here local too, so I'd imagine a bunch of them vape.

I'm im Montreal and I've never encountered people vaping
I've been trying to subtly convert a few people, I don't want to be pushy about it but we'll see how that goes. I'm surprised it's not more popular here, the indoor smoking ban was enacted in 2004 and it gets down to about -30 celcius in the winter here.

I ran into a couple of vapers at DisneyWorld 2 weeks ago. We were in the Hollywood Studios and decided we wanted to sit down and blow big clouds(we usually just quietly hit it while we were walking around the parks) so we went over to a nice shaded smoking area and started fogging up the place. There was a man sitting a little ways from us who got so excited to see us. He was a new vaper and had been using it for about 10 days. We talked shop for a while and I gave him this website. I saw another guy using his on the Disney bus that ran from the resort to the parks. His was a cigarette style and surprisingly no one on the bus said a word to him about it. The last one was a bag inspector at one of the parks. She found my e-cig setup in my backpack and asked what it was. When I told her, she smiled real big and said she used one too. We talked shop briefly, much to the annoyance of the people in line behind me I'm sure. Those were my first "in the wild" sightings of e-cigs and I've been using mine for almost a year now.

Just passed my 30 day analog free and I actually saw a "Wild Vaporer" today.
I stopped off at a local burger joint and saw the maintanence man for the place holding an e-cig. I waited until I was done eating and asked him outside. "What flavor you vapin?', Him: "What?" I asked again, "Oh I'm on Wyatt Earp." He commented that he has been vapin for 2 years! I said congrats it's only 32 days for me!
Off I went but this is the first person other than friends I have seen out in the "WILD"! lol

Surprised that so few of you have seen others vaping. I've seen about 6 people vaping in public in the last 2 months excluding the 5-6 friends that vape.
