    Hello folks.

    Today is the 1 year anniversary of my last cigarette after switching to vaping after an approximately 23 year habit. So, I'm not one of the young guys, but I've quickly taken on vaping as not just an alternative to the stinkies but also very much as a hobby.. and even gaining a little bit of steam (some pun intended) into the industry. I've built a nice small collection of mods and rebuildables, become fairly proficient at making coils, and have even begun building my own mods entirely.
    I found this forum by being enrolled in a program for product testing and reviewing for Vandy Vape, so surely I'll be posting a little bit about that, but I expect to both learn and teach what I can around the forum in general.

    Thanks for having me !

    Hi and welcome from a fellow NYer (state or city, I've learned not sure to assume). And merry Christmas.

    Welcome to the forum, a great place to talk or ingest some knowledge. Fellow NYer here, I'm near the Eastern Adirondacks, a true "up-stater", none of this Poughkeepsie being upstate stuff.

    Ha.. I'm 10 minutes from Poughkeepsie and I assure you we consider ourselves very much 'Upstate". We despise Cuomo here as much as anywhere further north or west. :)

    Ha. The closest I got to you was about 6 months living in Croton. I remember once driving my daughter to the deepest level of hell Chucky Cheese that was up around there. ;)

    The Hudson Valley is really pretty, and I'd give Poughkeepsie an upstate rating.

    (If you happen to own that Chucky Cheese it's in jest, if not less so :D).

    Gotta laugh- I lived on Long Island most or my life- and everyone there considers anything above "Da Bronx"- upstate. I'm in Rockland County now. So I guess I'm a 'faux' up-stater.
    People in the 5 burroughs of NYC used to consider Nassau and Suffolk County "the country"- it's anything but.
