  1. I absolutely love the gulf coast. I've wanted to live there for years, and it looks like it's all gonna come true.
  2. Thank you for this!! Its great to have such a unanimous vote. I love to saltwater fish, but unfortunately for me I live in the Midwest so I haven't been able to much except for when I viait my folks.
  3. My wife is great about letting me buy what i want. I expect no issues.
  4. Lol. I just asked Hutch about the St. Croix Mojo or Tidemaster. It's good to hear that i wasn't far off with those. I had been looking at the Penn Spinnfisher V, but after this I may just change my mind.
  5. Thank you!! This is exactly why i come to people I "know" for advice.
  6. Thank you for the recommendation. Ive heard good things about the St. Croix Mojo, or Tidemaster. Any opinions om those?
  7. I should mention that while I dont have unlimited funds, I'd sooner pay more and have a long lasting, good performing rig, than to replace it two years from now.
  8. Good morning all, Not exactly cigars, but a topic I'm hoping I can find some good advice on nonetheless. I'm planning a move to the Gulf Coast of Florida later this year. My folks already live there, and my father owns a small boat that we use to fish the Sarasota Bay when we can. Seeing as I'm moving yhere permanently, I think it's time I bought my own rods and reels. Dad is a bit more of a "go-to-West-Marine-and-buy-something" type of guy. I'd like to find some good advice on a good overall use set-up to start with. Eventually I'll have a rig for every situation, but one has to start somewhere. The target fish are trout, spanish mackerel, pompano, reds, sheepshead, etc. If anyone has any advice on spinning rigs, I'd love to hear from people that I have found to be very trustworthy. Best, Dennis
  9. My musical tastes are relatively diverse, but for smoking and achieving the relaxed feeling I'm going for... I opt for Jazz/Blues, or classic country. Classic country has a way of bringing me to a place where I could drift off to Neverland without trying.
  10. Whether or not they were the best, my preferences are Connery and Craig. Connery for his suave old school bad boy characteristics, and Craig for his grit. Something ive noticed in Craig's films is that, besides Vesper Lind, the Bond girls don't tend to be as apparent as they were in earlier films. I may be mistaken, but that's been my observation. I grew up with Brosnan, but I always felt he was too polished and "pretty boy".
  11. Mice/Rats... I will run and try desperately not to scream like a little girl with a Hello Kitty backpack.
  12. Keep doing what you're doing, buying a box or two of cigars a week, and you won't have any issue aging them. Eventually you have too many to smoke in short order, and you continue to buy. It'll take a little time, but just make sure to pay your credit card on time every month, and have enough storage.
  13. It's part of the thrill of receiving a new box. The packaging is nearly artistic. Thanks guys!!
  14. Make a budget 9/10 Ive managed to live by a budget, with only a few minors slips, for the first time ever. Work down debt 8/10 Lessened our debt by 25%+ in one year. Lose weight 0/10 I'm entering the holiday season 4 pounds heavier than I entered the New Year. Be successful at my new gig 9/10 Our top five customers produced 8% less gross income for us this year, and we still put up a positive growth number for the year. My job is outside sales Work on my marriage 7/10 We're happier than we've ever been. I give the credit to my wife... she's a jewel. Work on my spirituality 4/10 It's a never ending battle for me. All in all, it's been a very good year for me, and having just come through the thanksgiving season, I'd like to say that I'm grateful
  15. I don't trust anyone in my family to buy me cigars. They don't know what I like, and they won't give me cash, so...
  16. This year we've been cracking down on debt, so even some "necessities" have been neglected. I've asked for socks, ties, a new knife for at work, a leather business card wallet, etc. Small things, but will be very useful for me. I don't honestly NEED anything, but they needed an answer.
  17. Screw sucking a golf ball through a garden hose... I want one of these!!
  18. I gotta be honest here... my wife is the best. When I initially asked her if she be ok with me smoking cigars she told me "sure, you don't have other hobbies". The next day she hands me $100, and says "if you're gonna smoke cigars you're gonna need a bitchin lighter and cutter, here's an early birthday gift." She's seen every one of my deliveries, likes the taste of a cigar on my lips, loves that I've decided to smoke Cubans and high quality NCs (it only makes sense babe, I think it's brilliant), and will occasionally smoke one with me. She always sits with me when I smoke, and will drink a craft beer on the front porch with me. I really couldn't have it better.
  19. If you have a cabinet there... even better. No sense smoking in enemy territory, when you don't have too.
  20. PO boxes work wonderfully. You swing by on your way home from work, and hide the box in your briefcase.
