    best rums under US$50.

    Thanks for the list Ken! Very timely, I was about to buy a housewarming gift and I have a great cheat sheet now!
  2. Highly recommend you hit Yosemite if at all possible. The crowds thin a little bit in September and should be fully in check by October. You can see tons of amazing sights from the car, and it’s truly a wonder of the natural world...

    email of the week.

    He’s definitely going to send back fake CoRos. They’ll be from a different source. He’s a scammer and won’t back down. If you placate him, you’re just falling into his trap.
  4. I have an 18 month old, so the thing I look forward to most is DEEP SLEEP.

    Oh god, that stinks! I feel so bad for everyone involved...

    New cigar dreaming: Would this float?

    1) They'd have to be cheaper than the Montecristo Medio Corona (unlikely for HSA to pursue anything down-market) or they're DOA 2) Simple, Trinidad Belicoso. They'd print money.

    Best use of a Fohiba??

    Obviously the best thing to do with a fakey is to repurpose the wrapper... the filler might be contaminated with gods knows what, but the wrapper should be ok to smoke.

    If only they would re-do Dr. No. I think that modern filmmaking would do that particular story well...
  11. I routinely buy boxes blind having never tried a single, and if I don't like em, I can always find willing takers! Live on the wild side!
  12. Di, if you are looking for a real whale watching experience, the grey whale migration happens in Baja California every winter... unsurpassed whale watching: They take you out on little Ponga boats, and there are literally thousands of whales. My in-laws went down after they saw our pictures and videos, check out the baby whale petting:

    No Lemon laws, I'm really surprised to hear that... What about the warranty?

    Heading to Hawaii on Fridaii

    Sorry to hear about your vacation becoming a pain in the ass. I hope the trip ends up way better than you expect. With any luck, you will find a secluded beach with some laid-back vibes and chill out enjoying a cigar or six without busy bodies to harass you. My experience in Hawaii has always been if you don't bother others and you are slightly off the beaten path (my understanding is that is relatively easy on Big Island), no one will bother you. Stay away from beach parks and you should be gravy! Aside from the punch to the pocketbook.

    Heading to Hawaii on Fridaii

    Hawaii's appeal is that it's tropical island paradise while still being inside the US. It's not a great "value" destination - unless you value the benefits of being able to stay in the US (say you want a virtually guaranteed safe experience for your kiddos). I'm going in July, and I have an 18 month old. I don't have to pass through customs, worry about dodgy water, yada yada. Wife and I have been in a lot of beautiful tropical paradises and Hawaii is on par with the best of them with essentially zero headaches (costs aside). It's all about what you value in your travels... My budgeting advice: hit Costco when you land and make sure you cook your own meals. Buy a few bottles of rum and enjoy paradise, you only live once...
