Cactus potting mix

Since many of you are aware of my friends cactus recent mishap (his arm fell off  :sad:), I am moving him to a new home. 

Any of you have favorite mixes that seem to have worked well for San Pedro's?

I found a cactus mix at walmart that seemed to work well. I'd say go with whatever premade mixes you can find.

I've been looking through some of the old posts on quality Cacti potting mixes and have seen this business of "Nan's Soil Mix" come up repeatedly. So, I followed the link posted in this old thread and it took me to "Nansnook". Here I found a photo of this smokin' hot little Sheila who looks to be well acquainted with cooking steaks and such. Problem being, I don't find nary a thing remotely related to re-potting cacti or what best to grow them in. I am going to keep going there anyway in hopes that she's posted some photos somewhere there of her nook.

In the mean time, maybe one of you here may know where I can find this elusive preparation "Nan's Soil Mix"?
