Campanas (3/5)

  1. As has been said Havana 7. I like Zaya 16 (usually on sale) and even Kraken. I use Zaya the most. Not too sweet.
  2. Double ziplock each box and put them in an esky (cooler). Check the cooler and wheel it through on your luggage trolley. Prob highly likely to cruise through. The above mentioned advice regarding booze is GOLDEN. In a galaxy far away I used to often bring an extra bottle of booze back to Oz and declare it. Duty free allowance was around 3 bottles but the 4th would trigger duty (tax) on the whole lot. Being an honest person and declaring the surplus bottle I’d offer to dispose of said excess bottle or forfeit. With the liquor prices in Australia, the red blooded border bloke literally has a mental breakdown with the thought of throwing away any alcohol so waves you through. YMMV and the above is not legal advice!
  3. Back when we used to stay up that way quite frequently, I enjoyed Woodland Hills Cigar Co. Great place. I’m not even sure we have a lounge here (Honolulu, HI) anymore. The one place was pretty run down and didn’t have that great a selection, plus located in a weird spot. I’d love to open a lounge but this is a very anti business and expensive state to do business in.
  4. NOTAMs (Notice to Airman - kinda like a memo) that lots of airports now have higher landing minimums temporarily whilst they figure this quagmire out. CAT 1 minima now (basically have to see the runway to land) vs CAT 3 auto land minima. It IS winter in the states so this should be fun, we did an auto land into Seattle last week.
  5. Most Aussies would also say…. Fear of getting randomly killed by a firearm - negligible. It’s all relative.
  6. The last time Boon’s tale was brought up to me was as we were passing over Malè in the Maldives and some Scottish guy was going hard at trying to out do old Boonie. Apparently the guy had come from Europe and quickly after boarding hops head first into his duty free. Somehow, hid the fact he was necking some scotch from the FAs and after he started going AWOL in the cabin they found a near empty bottle of dewars. We couldn’t believe he was still upright and conscious. Is Boonie still alive?
  7. Airlines make too much money off it for it to be cancelled. Would go against the general post COVID trend to nickel and dime people to death when they travel….. I WILL SAY last week I was surprised to get a blanket on Delta on a trans con. I did have to threaten to drink the bathroom water in order to get a glass of H2O though. No shame in a couple subtle 3 ounce ‘roadies’ of nice bourbon when your experiencing the miracle of flight.
  8. Nope. How else would we get the confidence to land the thing??? * I kid, I kid.
  9. Yep. Outrageous. I personally couldn’t visit and know at least 1 person who wasn’t permitted to see their dying parent due hotel quarantine (vaccinated too 🤦‍♂️ ).
  10. Holiday week of Christmas to New Year was a train accident in the airports. Combine that with a Jan 4th vaccine mandate for my employer and we’re super short. Perfect storm really. I’m in Arizona on vacation and it actually seems pretty normal here but in Hawaii, hospitality (restaurants and hotels) are having a tough time.
  11. Got a couple stuck in Oz with all my other stuff. Intrigued now.
  12. Owned a few Grand Cherokee/Cherokee over the years and had no issues. Recently had an ‘08 Liberty as an island car. Must be the new ones that suck.
  13. Eventually on perpetual discount on the auction sites like those cigars with pre embargo tobacco.
