    What a unique way for the government to “stick it” to the public and have them smile during the act!

    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Not bad at all. Been dry boxing a few days.
  4. That box will make the ALCAN one hell of a trip! Good luck Colin!
  5. Thanks @Joeysmoke. My friend is going via Vancouver so I will let him know about City Cigar.
  6. Wow! Your generosity @Tave1225 is humbling. Thank you so much. Participating in this box pass has been an amazing experience. Thank you @cfc1016 for getting me involved. Cheers, Chris
  7. I have a friend heading out to Chilliwack, Canada in a couple of weeks. Anyone have any suggestions of cigar lounges or cigar stores my friend could visit while he is there? Thanks, Chris

    Box of the week

    They look better in the "nude!"
  9. I enjoy the burgers at Shelly's. If you are going early you should have no problem getting a club chair. The place is quite comfy but it can get very crowded. The times I went the ventilation wasn't the greatest so be prepared to smell like an ash tray when you leave. There are a few spots out front (maybe 8 or so chairs/tables) but this is definitely the wrong time of year to be outside in DC in the late afternoon. If you buy from Shelly's they have a pretty stiff mark-up so bring you own if you have them on this trip.

    Your next box is likely to be?

    That box of Cuabas @Elpresidente posted a pick of yesterday? One can always hope!
  11. Box is in the hands of the Post Office. Next stop Ohio!
  12. So I am off to buy a new box this morning and should have the new box off to @Capt. Brett later today. So without further ado...

I was really not smoking CCs in Texas much (there was a great B&M that was like my version of Cheers) and the storage of these El Morro's was not the greatest. Some had wrappers beginning to loosen etc... and some looked fine. I have had these two under proper humidor conditions for over six months now and they are in good shape. Sorry about not having the exact box code/date but I pitched the box over a year ago. I cannot in good conscious do anything with them but give them away for others to try. If they turn out to be dog rockets no matter, but if you take one and you like it, please let me know. This was one of those rare cigars that I had delicate cup of Darjeeling Tea like flavors from.

    How did you get started?

    Was deployed to Kosovo in 2000-2001 (cushy deployment) and the senior staff would gather to smoke outside the General’s hooch every evening. I was the boss’ secretary at the time and got treated like the kid brother by the staff officers. We bought our Cubans from the French contingent’s PX on convoy runs. The first box I ever purchased was a Montecristo Especial No.2 and they were pure magic.
  14. Well, well, well... Look at just what arrived in the mail. I believe this is coming your way Capt. Brett next!
  15. Hahhahaha! I went outside to check the mail, saw nothing but junk, then looked at the tracking webpage. I had a good laugh.
