A vape shop near the truck stops in Marianna Florida.
If you're travelling across Interstate 10 in the state of Florida, Marianna has a great exit for you to stop at. You've got 2 truck stops, a T/A and a Pilot. On the south side of the Pilot is a nice little restaurant called Po Folks. Directly in front of the Pilot on the same side of the road is a Waffle House, and if you walk out of the north end of the truck parking lot you will come out into the WalMart parking lot. That's tough to beat, but just for good measure let's throw in a vape shop within walking distance of the Pilot as well. You ready to go? Let's talk about how to get there.
When you're traveling across I 10, take exit 142 and head north on FL 71. Just north of the Interstate, you will see the Pilot truck stop. Just past the Pilot is a WalMart, and just past the WalMart is a traffic light. So from the Pilot, walk north to that light and turn right. There is a plaza on your left right after you cross the road, and you will see a Beef O'Brady's in that plaza. At the end of the yellow building, you will see Vapor Tech. It's roughly a 1/4 mile walk from the Pilot.
Alternatively, and completely unverified by me, the management of this shop has informed me that you can drive to that traffic light and turn right and park your rig on the side of the road to shorten your walk. They tell me that road is more or less a semi-circle, and it will bring you back out on highway 71. I haven't done this myself, and again it is a short walk from the Pilot so I find this to be unnecessary, but they tell me that some truckers do park on that street to come in. As for me, I prefer to park where I know I won't get in trouble so I'll stick to the Pilot.
Now, on to the info. I've got to be honest here, this isn't one of my favorite vape shops on the road. There's nothing particularly wrong with it. The staff is friendly, they have a fair amount of gear to choose from, and they have a nice lounge. Yet when I walk into this shop, I feel the same way many of you tootle puffers (low watt, high nic vapers) feel when you walk into the cloud chaser shops. This store has something for everyone, but they cater more to you than to me.
This is really a one stop shop for those of you that vape the older style of less power, higher nic levels. They have their own house blend juice line that goes up to 24 mg of nicotine. Additionally, they offer juice from the following manufacturers.
- Alien Vape
- Junkie Juice
- Khali Vapors
- Cosmic Charlie's
- Naked Fish
- Geek Vapor
- Hometown Hero
- Space Jam
- Naked 100
- Roll Ups
So you see, they do have a fair selection of gourmet flavors for those looking for the higher vg and lower nic level lines, but their house line is more catered to their old school vapers, and that doesn't end with their house line of liquids. Their gear selection also leans towards the lower watt vapers.
Now, see those last two names on this list? And I don't mean Innokin as in the latest iteration of the MVP. I mean Innokin as in the iTaste clearos. And I mean the clearos as in the actual clearos, not just the replacement heads... which they also carry. I mean old school, 1.8 ohm style clearomizers from Vision, Kanger, and Innokin. This is the only vape shop in the country where I have seen this type of gear currently. I've seen Evod kits, or old eGo style kits still collecting dust in the corners of some vape shops, but this is the only shop I have seen that still carries this kind of selection in this type of gear which is, again, not my style. However, I know plenty of vapers that still do use this type of gear, and if you're one of them than Vapor Tech in Marianna Florida is a "must visit" shop for you.
Now, if you're not an old school vaper they do have selections for you too. Sub ohm tanks, high powered mods, and gourmet liquid selections. It's just that there are plenty of other shops that have a wider selection of the newer style mods, drippers, and tanks. So while it's not necessarily a "must see" shop for you, it is a good place to come by and check out if you are running low on supplies out on the road. Prices are fair, selection is decent, and they tend to have some juices on clearance every time I stop by there so you can always score some e-liquids at a nice discount.
