I recently got back from a long road trip to visit family. Flying wasn’t an option because of timing and my dogs. Before switching from smoking to vaping long road trips were torture. My wife wouldn’t allow me to smoke while I drove, so I could only light up at rest stops. I didn’t have to worry about that this time. I vaped the entire time there, on the way back, during the visit, pretty much constantly.
Don’t run out of supplies
Whenever you take a long trip, whether it’s by road, train, or plane you must make sure you have enough supplies on hand. My personal rule is to take 2 to 3 times as much as I usually go through in the same time period, especially if the trip is potentially stressful.
How do I know what I need?
Here’s an easily formula to follow: If you only use prefilled cartos, bring the amount you use in one day then times that by the number of days you’ll be gone, and double it. Use the same formula for the juice (just replace number of cartos with ml’s) and batteries.
Example: If each day you typically use 3 cartos and 2 batts, and your trip is 5
days long, you will want to bring 30 cartos, and 20 batts (plus a couple of chargers).
Always bring at lease two chargers. Heavy vapers should bring a third or fourth. If you have a mod of some sort, bring multiple batts (4 if you’re using a stacked mod, 2 if you’re using a single battery mod). A wall adapter for the passthrough, and a car adapter can both be life savers if all your batts are charging. If bringing a tank, be sure to have at least 1 extra replacement carto with you.
Here’s what I brought for five days. It was a good thing that I over packed, because by the end I only had a half a bottle of Nuport WOW 36mg left!
10 – WOW blank cartos
5 – 30ml bottles of Nuport WOW 36mg
2 – 30ml bottles of Smilin Premium 36mg
4 – 30ml bottles of Wowboy 36mg
12 – Personal vaporizers (XL King Diamond and Stealths)
3 – Shorty velvet touch Vapor Titan Diamond autos
3 – Slim Line chargers
3 – Empty tanks
1 – Filled tank
4 – 2.0ohm range dual coil replacement cartos
To some that’s overkill, but as stated before, I ended up with just 15ml’s of Nuport WOW left once we were back home.
