    Let's get together

    I don't have the info in front of me but we have a CH'r in Charlotte, NC that is putting together a weekend meet and great the weekend of 12-14/15. I'll see him this weekend and have him come here to post up the particulars.

    My first O2 tank!!

    Good deal! Those masks he gave you while better than nothing, are not the best for our use. Order the Cluster O2 kit if you haven't already. http://www.clusterheadaches.com/ccp8/

    2019 Conference how is/was it?

    First O2 demo starting in just a few....
  5. Back when I was flying more, I would run in to the occasional TSA agent that would seemingly have no idea what my regulator was and I'd get pulled aside to "discuss" this mysterious item. During a thunderstorm ground stop in Charlotte I was making use of the extra time to smoke a cigarette (long since quit), I struck up a conversation with a member of the TSA and eventually the conversation turned towards my regulator. She told me that the reason I was getting checked so much was that the regulators are hard to ID in my bag when going through the x-ray machine and thus triggering a manual check. Her advice was to place the regulator in the tray beside my laptop or shoes and she could almost guarantee I'd have no issues going forward. She was spot on....never a minutes trouble since then. Of course YMMV. On a related note, if you are packing regulator(s) in checked bags, expected them to open the bag up and take a look. Just the way things are these days. I imagine they'll have a field day with the bag I'm packing with 6-8 different types of O2 equipment for my demo. No biggie......as long as it gets there.

    O2 trick

    I'm not a big fan of having a plastic bag full of accelerant just hanging around the house. Each to his own.
  8. Inquiring minds want to know. Fill us in DD. Not being privy to the Facebook chatter it would be great to know who is coming. And I'm all in for Pizza..... As for pics.....Back in the days of OUCH I used to fill up CH.com with convention pics but have never really done so for CB. I always figured people might value privacy at these gatherings. Plus it's nice not snapping pics all the time. That being said I could be talked in to taking a few and posting them up as long as everyone was good with it.
  9. I'm always open to local restaurants. It's been several years since my last visit to Dallas (connecting flights not included) so I'm not up on the best places. Keep the suggestions coming!
  10. I'll be there. Flying in that Tuesday.....

    Best cheap demand valve?

    That's not a bad price from what I've seen lately. As to the quality of one over another.....I can't really speak to that with any authority.

    Oxygen Mask question

    Demand valves on med regulators need a DISS fitting. DISS fittings can be found on either type regulator but they are not standard on either type. I've seen welding regs that can support the demand valves as well.
  13. History is always in the hands of those who write about it.

    Thank God for this forum and a few questions!

    Personally I'd switch doctors if one laughed at me.... Internet based cluster headache communities helped save my life. I have no time for self important gasbags who believe they know it all.

    Lilly's Emgality

    Some of you may know about Lilly's new drug Emgality. It appears that it's now FDA approved and ready to go for migraine. The interesting thing is during an interview this morning on CNBC, Christi Shaw, Lilly Bio-Medicines president spoke not only of the new drug's effectiveness with migraine but of Lilly's desire for FDA approval for cluster headache. Have a listen.....the CH reference starts at approximately 1:55. CNBC Video More about Emgality
