    Yay Don! You went and you obviously had a great time. I hope you got lots of hugs and accolades from everybody, I know if I had been there, I would have hardly left your side.

    Ditto here to Don! I so enjoyed getting to meet you and most of all giving you a big hug! (ok, and I'm sure KrisB would say the same!)

    Thank you, Dee, ByStander, and Vchick! The honor was mutual, ByStander ... and the hug was enjoyed even more by me, Vchick! [I still have dents in my chest from hugging KrisB.:D Or was it she who let me pillow my head?:)]

    Dee, you have no idea. I've been wanting to go to one of these things since they started and had high expectations. The actual experience exceeded those expectations. So many different types of experiences: actually meeting the celebrities* ... schmoozing (with so many folks I had known virtually and with those I had had no relationship) ... holding mods I had only read about (it really was a mods convention, although no one poo pooed my fat batts) ... being gifted (by its inventor, Tom, with a VPX Cartomator Tank and by Zen with long "cigarette holder" drip tip for my avatar costume) ... interacting with the suppliers and sampling all the free e-liquid ... a few deeply touching, tearful/joyous moments ... more alcohol than I had consumed since college days ... and on and on.

    * I truly was star-struck (initially) with the video personalities. After awhile, however, I found them to be just real (and nice) individuals.​

    Many, many hugs – including with a couple people from VF with whom I had been on the outs. [Hell, I even roomed with two VFers.] It was that kind of event.

    I did receive many one-on-one accolades ... and a huge group accolade: when I won** the Halloween Costume contest. [I guess I really did look like my avatar.] The wonderful Empire mod prize will always carry an extra-special meaning for me.

    ** To my ears, the screamed voting really seemed to make it a tie with "MiniMal" (Cheryl from Cherry Vape). We each received a great prize.​

    Apologies to Kev (one of the celebrities I was privileged to meet) for derailing his thread.

    I am assuming that, given this was a vaping event, that most people were freely vaping away - the pictures were excellent.
    So, given this is not a typical "mixed crowd" i.e. smokers/nonsmokers, I can't help but be struck by the complete absence of any haze in the room - the air appears clear as if it were a traditional nonsmoking venue. This I think speaks loudly for e-cigs!

    By the way, if anyone knows the maker of that e-hookah, please apologize to him for me. I think it was him that gave me a pack of cartomizers to use on the hookah. I meant to give him back the pack after taking one, but I ended up talking with him and his friends for a half hour and I accidentally took off with all of them in my pocket.

    No apology needed Don. It was great to finally meet you. I'm so happy that you won the costume contest. Your costume was fantastic.

    Everyone seems so HAPPY!! Can you imagine the difference if there were equivalent festivals or conventions for people using NRT or similar products?

    I can just see it now. Join us at PatchFest!! Misery is included in the admission price.

    Actually, NasalSnusFest was really good. A bit messy though.
