    So I stared vaping at my previous job when I was a yard switcher. Now that I'm back OTR, I stocked up with some juice and coils.

    Where do you get your vaping supplies while on the road? Do you just typically wait until you go home and then visit your local vape shop and stock up on stuff for your next time out? Or is there anywhere in particular you stop off at when OTR?

    Thanks

    I bring a good bit out and I have a box of coils. It's hard finding a
    Place.
    there is one across the street from the loves in Jackson Tennessee and the AB truck stop on 44 in Arkansas sells some of the best juice I have had but really expensive banana puddin by southern tradition. Also I have found some juice mixers on Craig's list willing to deliver their juices if you by 60 dollers or more in a few city's

    Thanks for that. My best friend lives in Jackson, TN area. Dunno when I'll get out that way, though.

    Well I started supplying myself heavily after I had to vape juice from the loves and ta for 3 weeks, I wouldn't vape if that's all I had to choose from. I want to get one of those kits to start making your own juice. I seen a thread on here awhile back and a fellow said it's a #### load cheaper and basically your always supplied

    I'm a bit different because I smoke a pipe.

    Try finding your pipe tobacco out on the road. There are only about 4 places I know of in the country to get it while on the road.

    I could get it while on home time, but I live in MN.
    A couple years ago they increased tobacco taxes by something like 90%. A bag of my tobacco costs nearly $60 now. A carton of cigs is like $90.
    Other places in the country will be around $20-25 for my stuff, and $35 for the cigs.
    So I stock up whenever I can out here. And I buy my sister her cigs whenever I can.

    Watch the road signs for places that sell vaping stuff. Some of them even say 'truck parking'.

    You can also use your GPS.
    Direct it to a Walmart or truck stop and do a search of nearby shopping. Many times you will find what you need.
    Or punch in the address of the vape shop and search for nearby truck stops or Walmart's.

    I load up, but fool that I am I like the juice made in house from a local place so it's not like I could walk into a place a few states over and find it. I have tried stopping in a place from time to time when I ran out unexpectedly but new juice means you have to toss in a new coil, which generally irks me just on a waste of money thing so I don't do it anymore. I split my time between vaping and smoking anyway so if I run out I just smoke more.

    I guess you could try and order on-line but when you're OTR that would only work if you knew you were going to be getting to a terminal a week in advance and were able to have it shipped there to begin with.

    I get it on the road wherever I can find a place big enough to pull in and stock up when I find something I like. Being a hotshot, my situation is slightly different as I can fit a few more places than you big guys but options are still limited.

    When I'm getting low, I start searching vape shops along the route and use the Google satellite view. Most of them have barely any parking but I can usually luck out and find one in a shopping center with a big lot. You could even drop your trailer at a truck stop (if its allowed, always check) to make a run and that would give you more options. Even if the vape shop doesn't have parking, check nearby on satellite. I've found parking a block or two away before too and just hoofed it.
