This has been one of the hardest blogs to write. Even now almost two weeks later it’s still hard to put into words how great of an experience VaperCon was. It had almost nothing to do with the items being sold (I only bought one item while I was there – a very limited run mod), but with the people themselves. I have been to all three VaperCons that have taken place thus far. The first will always hold a special place due to it being the lone one Vapor4Life was present at, but this year there were more members of their forum present than ever before. I had the absolute honor and pleasure of getting to spend the day with Ms. K9Luvr, Ms. KellyV, RoccoV sir, WillardRoads sir, Ms. AzVitesse, and Ms. Zdarov. You can get new vaping supplies any day of the week (except Sunday if you’re ordering on-line), but to get to be around people who live miles and states is a whole different story. Especially when they’re exactly who they come off as on-line.
The room was filled with vapers and vapor. It got so bad at one point you couldn’t see more than a few feet in front of you and the fire alarm kept going off. There were people from every walk of life, and with the exception of a very few, all were friendly and were quick to have a conversation. While all talks seemed to start with vaping, they quickly took all sorts of turns. At any different table or while walking by you could hear a complete myriad of different topics being discussed. Needless to say most people when they left the event had more friends than when they arrived.
That is in essence the true reason to go to any vapor convention in your area. While we all might be different in many ways, all it takes is one common ground to get to know one another. It’s the beauty of vaping, it simply brings people together. I am honestly looking forward to next year’s VaperCon in much anticipation and hoping I can get together with some of the aforementioned individuals sooner than that.
