John Z. of Hanover Park, IL is a real explorer. This past summer he took his portable oxygen concentrator on a road trip across America. Starting in Illinois, John made a 2,000 mile drive along historic Route 66 until he reached his destination, The Grand Canyon. "It was a long, but beautiful trip," says John. Along the way he made stops at many restaurants, museums, and other national landmarks like Meteor Crater in Arizona and the Continental Divide. The whole drive was possible due to his portable oxygen concentrator.
With his portable concentrator he didn’t need to worry about driving with dozens of oxygen tanks. Instead, all he needed to do was plug it into his car’s cigarette lighter and begin his day’s drive without worrying about running out of oxygen. "We averaged about 400 miles a day for 5 days. I don’t see how I could have done that using oxygen tanks." Open-Aire is happy that we could help John on his amazing road trip, and look forward to hearing about where he goes next.
