Its that time of the year again where the hype for Vapecon 2019 is all about the forum, since not much has changed (besides the absurd amount of people attending...), i'm reposting my VC2018 guide with some tweaks. Feel free to share any advice you can for first-timers... **Vapordudes 10 Pro-Tips to enjoying Vapecon 2019** 1) Get there early for parking! Its basically an open field so its every vaper for himself (no kidding). *Pro-tip. Give the car guard R10 to find you a parking. 2) Bring a backpack of supplies (water, food, extra batteries, chargers, powerbanks, wick and wire, tools etc), anything can happen but dont burden yourself by lugging around a 5KG bag if you're only there for 2 hours. Not really pro-tip but cash wise tip: Don't spend money on food and drinks thats a suckers playground, you can get an extra 2-3 flavors alone just by bringing stuff from home. 3) The snake line dissolves into a mad grasp for freebies near gate opening time and its FCFS (First Come First Served) deals inside, everytime. Get as close as possible as early as possible. Lot of oaks are clever and camp there the night before, you dont have to be so hardcore but anytime before 7am secures you a decent spot in the que.(thank me later). 4) Assume your budget and stick to it,you dingus. Also, if you've had bat for a year, get them replaced. If you overspend you will regret it instead of having a good time... 5) Say hello to Uncle Rob @Rob Fisher and @Silver (this is a non-negotiable). 6) Download the map of the vendor stalls a day before and mark where you should goto to capitalize on the best deals in the shortest amount of time. The VC staff will hand them out at the gate but bring one just incase. I lost my map and had to go all the way to the entrance to get another. 7) Don't waste time in the first hour of the mad rush...get your essentials and after that its smooth sailing *Pro-tip #2: Bring a pen and paper to mark down vendors and sales at their stalls. Some vendors wont announce their goodies till the day, you may be surprised... 8) Keep an eye on ALL of your belongings, there are alot of skelms that dress like vapers to blend in and will escape quickly. If someone bumps you, immediately check your pockets. 9) Bring a jersey and a hat. 10) Don't be a doos...be lekker.
