  1. It's not so much the voltage you need to take into account but the amps. If you are using one of the feeds to the garage as a sub main it needs to be big enough to handle the combined amps requirements of everything you plan to run in the garage, lights plus power points. At the sub board you then split that cable up to feed a breaker for your lights and a breaker for your power points Exactly right^^
  2. If assume you’re talking about the La Hoyo de Rio Seco? I got excited too, but there seems to be a typo somewhere. The text says 46 ring gauge, but the spreadsheet says 56. I would prefer the 46.
  3. It’s not necessarily unusual. It’s possible whoever installed the wiring ran separate circuits to the lighting and outlets. installing a sub panel should be fairly easy, especially if the existing wiring is run in conduit. If it is, you can trace the conduit to where it comes out of the ground, and redirect it to the location you want to install the sub panel. Then, you would pull out the existing wires and install new, sized for current draw you anticipate needing for everything you want to feed out of the sub panel. Last, you would run the wiring for your existing lighting / outlets into the new panel, and run new wiring for the heater. if you have direct burial cable run to the garage, it becomes a bit more difficult as you would need to dig a new trench for the new wiring. Either way, it’s not a big deal, and depending on circumstances (location of main electrical service relative to the garage, and whether or not you already have a conduit from the main house to the garage) may not be too expensive. I hope this helps. If you have any more questions, please feel free to reach out and ask.
  4. I just don't get it

    I thought I would post an update tonight on my box of RASS. After several months of avoiding these, I plucked up the courage to give them another go. Now, I'm not sure if these will ever become a favorite of mine, but all I can say is wow, what a difference. This was the first cigar out of the box that I actually enjoyed, and I can see this becoming a change of pace cigar for me when I crave something a little different. Why did I like this cigar now? I took the advice of many of you on this post, as well as other posts, and modified my storage conditions in order to lower the moisture content in my cigars. I still use the winador for my frequent smokes, and have now, due to an increased volume of cigars to store, have purchased a large cooler for the cigars I don't smoke very often, or am trying to age. For humidity maintenance, I'm using 62% Boveda packs. Additionally, and I think most importantly, I unplugged the winador and am storing my cigars at room temperature (72F). For this, I want to call out @PigFish and thank him for his repeated teaching on percent moisture content. It is now clear to me that temperature is absolutely important when managing percent moisture content in cigars. In addition to the RASS, I'm finding that all of my cigars taste and burn better than when I was storing them around 65F. Thank you again, sir, for showing me how to better enjoy the wonderful world of Cuban cigars. The irony here is that most of Pigfish's comments on this post have been about poor construction, not storage conditions or percent moisture content, and I acknowledge this may still be the case. Alas, I still have no idea for certain, why I enjoyed this particular cigar while the first six showed me just how much I could hate a cigar. None the less, I did learn valuable lessons from everyone's responses, which leads me to comment on what a great place FOH is to learn and live this hobby of ours. The collective wisdom of this community amazes me, and I thank you all for sharing your experiences. Cheers, all.
  5. Dog just got sprayed by a skunk...

    After trying to clean our idiot, I mean dog, ourselves, we left him in the garage overnight. The next day, we brought him to the nearest pet store / groomer, in our case, Pet Smart. They washed him down to point we could let him back into the house, using some kind of soap that left a very perfumey, yet non skunk smell. Word of warning though...every time the dog gets a little wet for the next couple months, the skunk smell comes right back, until he / she dries off. Good luck,
  6. I love the Don Alajandros, one of my favorites. It's definitely not caramel and cream though. More earthy with hints of chocolate to me.
  7. Stopwatch: Corona Gorda

    Here's one of my smokes from this weekend, a Punch Punch, from a 50 cab purchased on a recent 24:24. The draw was a bit loose, leading me to believe it would be a quick smoke. Total time, an enjoyable 67 minutes.
  8. This will be fun, I'm in.
  9. I had much the same experience as you with young RASS. It's no exaggeration when I describe it as the worst cigar I've ever had. I'm hoping some time will turn it around, but it's hard to imagine that it will.
  10. Stopwatch: Mareva/Petit Corona

    Congrats Diabolicalpherfer.
  11. I'm fairly new to this, so take this with a grain of salt: Bolivar Corona Gigante - 2016 Partagas SD4 - 2016 Montecristo Petite Edmundo - 2016 Cohiba Siglo lll - 2016 Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro - 2015 The interesting thing about this list is the top four share the same factory code (PUR), rolled in the same six month period. Is this coincidence?
  12. Stopwatch: Mareva/Petit Corona

    For my afternoon cigar today, I chose a BPC from our host. It was very humid today, which I think caused some burn issues. Still tasted great though. Total smoke time just over one hour, three minutes. Sorry for the sideways pictures.
  13. Stopwatch: Robusto

    I chose a Partagas SD4 for my Saturday morning smoke on this beautiful Chicago morning. I have to say, this is probably my favorite cigar so far, and every cigar from this box has been amazing. I'm not going to offer a review as my palate is probably one small step up from a corpse, and I have no ability to differentiate individual flavors in anything. That said, this might be one of the best examples I've had to date. total smoke time was about 1 hour, 20 minutes.
  14. I just don't get it

    Guy, this has been fun, and I feel kind of bad, but I'll be checking out of my own discussion topic. Im heading to Costa Rica tomorrow morning with my kids for the next couple weeks, and if there is a god, there won't be any internet. Thanks for all the help, I really do appreciate it. Al
