    Hi Hellen.

    The Mrs. and I are located at 71st Ave and Lower Buckeye (Save the jokes. We've heard 'em all and written a few new ones!) and we have family ALL OVER the valley (including Surprise).

    Really looking forward to a meet. Need some serious knowledge transfer.

    (Was surprised to see the location of Hazelwoods! I used to manage the "Liquor Barn" that used to be on the opposite corner there many moons ago! Talk about a return to old "stomping grounds"!)

    We've pretty much got a handle on the 510s (they seem to work just as described), but the trial-and-error on hardware maintenance and juice vendors is getting somewhat old. Looking for some straight answers from some "old-hands".

    'Til then....

    Don't hesitate to post questions in any of our threads here on VIP FishStyx! We're always happy to try and help! These are the only threads I don't kill (usually). LOL

    Looking forward to meeting you and Mrs. Tutu!! :)

    I should have a date for the next meeting tomorrow, as promised by John, sighh. Looks like we're getting the boot on Sundays though... Football season and the manager thinks they won't have room for us. Want us to do Saturday during the season. Look for a new thread with the info. tomorrow.

    Welcome to VIP! You're in luck with Juice vendors. Jerry, Matt and Chad (local juice vendors..and Chad also supplies hardware) provide great juice and excellent customer service at nice prices! Give em a shot (Jerry runs Aroma e-Juice (recommend Red Bull flavor..my all time fav), Matt runs Wet Your Stick (I'm a Cola fan from him) and Chad runs ecigsupply (loving the creme de coconut)..all straight up guys). We've got some great local suppliers that attend our VIP meetings! Hopefully I can make it next time (if Vicky can hook me up with a weekday meet hint hint..love ya Vicky!! haha.)

    Hi Helen, invo, SheerLuckHolmes, Tammietutu, Alientropy, Bob, Terrie, FishStyx, and desrtrat ! Pleased to make you acquaintance !

    I have actually been a member here for quite awhile, just not the talkative type I guess. I was only a casual vape until a couple of weeks ago when I made the break from analogs. I had quit and failed so many times during the last 30 years, I was afraid to even try again. It's really hell on the self-dignity to fail again and again and ....

    So with with some 901s and a couple of magnums firmly in-hand, I mustered the courage to try again. And damn if I have not made it ten days so far without a cig. Every day gets a little easier, every day I feel a little better. Thanks to ecigs, I am confident that I am going to win this time. Even just reading this forum every night for a little while helps my resolve and keeps me focused.

    It's my wife, and best friend that made me aware of ecigs. Told me about it after seeing someone selling them in the shopping mall. This site was (and is) one of the best sources of information I have found, and I have sent many of my friends and associated here for answers to their ecig questions.

    It's a real pleasure to meet you all.

    Just realized that this thread was only intended for Phoenix member. The little edit box won't let me delete the message, so you'll have to accept my apologies. Truth is I grew up in ScottsDale long before it became an old money town. It was cactus, coyotes, sand, snakes, and road runners back then. I left a part of me in the desert when I had to leave the place.

    Awww, no problem Dreamer! Easy to do on the forum (people can post in Social Group forums once without signing up as a member, weird glitch in SJ's system).

    Thanks for poping in to say hello and let us know that you were one of the few to escape from here, ha. Let us know if you are ever in town!!
    HAH

    Well...I'm not really supposed to leave this area *draws 10' circle around himself and tests the chain he's attached too* :p

    And the only place I know that I've been able to vape in my neck of the woods is at the Tilted Kilt on Warner and Kyrene...but not sure if that's an appropriate place hahah not to mention i've never been in there with a big group of vapers so it may not be good. I know there's a hookah bar next to the Ahwatukee AMC 24 on Ray and the I-10, but I know not too many people live out here on my side of town and I've never been in the bar personally...It's probably better to have some place that's centrally located like Hazelwoods so nobody has to drive to the other side of the valley...I hope some others have some ideas. I'm not familiar with that part of town unfortunately.

    And anytime you wanna meet for a beer..just let me know, I'm in! Hell..I might even buy the first round! haha :D

    I think I speak for most of us when I say "Choose a date, tell us where to be, and we'll be there." :)

    Since you have sign in sheets, you can judge turnout as we go and analytically determine the best days.

    I'm itching for some cheese sticks....:D

    I agree Disman....just tell me when and where. I wanna meet all you "characters". Seems to be a well adjusted group of people (hahahahah)....Hey, no offense. "normal" people are overrated..hehehe


    P.S. They wrote a book about me too and it's called "I'm OK, Your OK" cant remember the author cause I have CRS...

    Sweet! Most weekday evenings work well. The chain is just replaced with the cell phone (and gps implant in my brain)... Just drop me a line (or post on the board) when you're bored and are willing to be seen in public with the likes of me and we can set something up :)

    Hi there. New member here.

    My name is Ziggy Kennedy and I play music here in Phoenix and other places when I get a chance. I have been off analogs for 2 weeks now and I am slowly getting my wife to stop and join me with the help of a M402 hand down when I got my 510. I played my first big show on Saturday night without smoking and analog for the first time in my adult life. So I am rather pleased with everything and absorbing as much info as possible.

    I am going to try to make the September meeting if my schedule allows me to do such.

    Nice to meet you all.

    Hellen A. Handbasket Vaping Master Verified Member ECF Veteran

    Hey Ziggy! Congrats on the show and doing it analog free. You'll have to let us know where and when you play next.

    I just got a M401 (little longer lasting than the 402, but the batteries are all interchangeable). I was surprised how good these are. It is my first one that looks like a cig. (normally use 801 or 510). The new E-Dobit on the exposed atomizer is pretty great (and she may take to the 401 easier) rather than trying to refill those crummy little cartridges or having to purchase them, which can be expensive). Here is some info.

    and
    http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/e-cigarette-suppliers-forum/33033-e-dobit-update-supplies.html
    She'll be taking orders again in a week or so. Turned the 401 into a useful e-cig. ha. Recommended for the 510 and 801 too! I got 4 of them.

    Watch for a new thread in the VIP forum with the September meeting information, coming soon (yes, I'm still waiting on John). We hope you both will be able to come meet everyone. Let us know if we can help with anything.

    Hello!

    Just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks to everyone for posting all this info on vaping. I'm Tim, new to Phoenix and e-cigarettes. I heard about the digital option in a roundabout way (a family member knew of a coworker who was vaping Red Bull), and finally decided to give it a try. I just received my first eCig a couple of days ago from PureSmoke. From just a quick glance it seems like there is a lot of info in this forum that could be helpful (thanks!). I used to make homebrew beers but I may have to switch over to learning about custom vapor blends. Cheers!
