    Joplin, MO here! We moved here from KY a couple of years ago, to make work more convenient. The wife and I tag-team a big truck, leased to a local company. Looks like we're not the only truckers in the group! :)

    I'm absolutely interested in some kind of MO Meetup, if I can work it into my crazy, mixed-up non-schedule. You other truckers know what I mean. :D

    In order, I have had or still have, an NJoy NPro (gave it away), NCig (gave away), then a Copper w/a 510 (gave away), a Silver Bullet (wife stole it), a GGT w/AFS (won't let it out of my sight), and one of Carlos' Juice Boxes (I flirt with it when my GGT isn't looking).

    My current main vape is the GGT @ 7.4 volts with an 801 HV atty from imeo (I never could get the AFS to work for me).

    Favorite juice: TV Butter Rum @ 36 mg. from with as much VG as Geoff can stuff in there.

    Due to my schedule, I may stalk these forums (seemingly) 24/7 for days on end, then disappear for a week or two, so don't get your feelings hurt if I don't respond right away.

    Hi, all. KC reporting in!

    No trucking for me, just an IT guy who lives in the Northland. Just started vaping about a month ago, have a 510 and a new Tornado I'm still breaking in.

    Hi fellow show me state vapers! I am a noob on this forum and very excited to find this group! I live in SW Missouri (used to live in Springfield, moved a few months ago). I have not actually started using any products, but its why I joined this forum. I am planning to and wanted to get the skinny from those who actually use the products.

    Hey quasimod!

    Oh how I remember those days of truckin! I don't drive anymore due to arthritis, but my hubby and I teamed for 12 years. I really miss it sometimes! You know what they say about getting trucking in your blood! :) We hauled electronics coast to coast, and I don't miss East coast traffic!

    Glad you joined our group! BTW, post when you can, you're always welcome!

    Take care and have a safe ride!

    Hey Fishin' Cricket!

    Welcome to our group! I live near Lebanon, too! I vaped the other day at Country Kitchen (in the smoking section), and got a lot of strange looks! lol! I didn't get any questions except from the waitress, but everyone else was hanging on our every word!
    I've yet to see anyone else vaping around here. But I hope it will catch on!

    We hope to have a big get together soon. Maybe when the weather gets nice.
    Hope to see you there!

    Take care!

    hey trukin! I didn't know you vaped at Country Kitchen! AWESOME! I bet you did get some strange looks. With everyone being "non-smoking" in every !@#$% public place, it's great to see e-cigs making their way into the "smoking" arena. Now cough when you see the "smoke". LOL

    Hey Prgal!

    It was different! I hope e-cigs catch on! I don't like being treated like a second class citizen because I smoke! (soon to be an ex-smoker of analogs!) I promise not to get on my soapbox!

    I know what u mean. Since I've been an analog smoker x 30 yrs; I've seen the culture go from being promoted and acceptable to being something similar to doing illegal drugs in public. I know public opinion changes, but I too get sooo tired of being treated like a second class person, because I CHOOSE to smoke.

    You may not want to get on your soapbox... but I can for a bit. Yeah, I am a smoker, but I do try and be a respectful one. While smoking outside (oh yeah, can't share air with people inside anymore) I don't stand right by the door so my smoke goes in the building. If visiting friends and they are either non-smokers or don't smoke in their homes, I respect that. I just wish all the "non-smokers" out there would try and respect my CHOICE. :shock: Had to put this in.. too cute not to use... I shouldn't be shocked at how non-smokers react to us smokers.

    I know what you mean! What really bothers me is banning smoking outside in the open air!!:mad: I can understand an inside ban, but outside (away from the door) is blatant discrimination!:mad: But I don't believe a lawyer would take on a legal case such as that. There are some who feel guilty for smoking, and maybe they accept such restrictions because of that guilt. Oh, Oh, I'm on my soapbox now!:)
