  1. I have never seen that before. Some unravel from a bad cut or have splits, but not a burst!
  2. I always avoided the gym and kept to a simple routine of push-ups, sit-ups, and run. A few free weights thrown in for fun when I had time. About 6 months ago I moved back to where I grew up and talked with an acquaintance who owns a strength gym about getting serious. He has put me on 3 different 8 week programs so far, working out for ~60 minutes Mon-Fri. I have been in the best shape in years. I am happy to share those plans and have attached them to this message. Feel free to ask, as some of the exercise names probably make no sense.

  3. So how common are beetles? I have yet to experience them in 10 years of novice to intermediate cigar smoking/collecting/keeping. I just recently got into cubans and only currently have about 50 Cubans and 30 NC between two coolidor/tuppadors. I keep each box or pack in separate tuppadors with two tuppadors for singles.
  4. Thanks for the recommendations. I will have to play some this evening.
  5. I am working through a box of ABR 16 Monte #5s. Smoking great. No issues with the quality through 3 of smokes over the past couple weeks.
  6. If doing a date/event based meetings start with the furthest out event as it is less likely to be fully planned and work backwards. The event that is coming up next will have the most detail and require the most attention so finish with that, or you will never make it to the next event
  7. My thoughts FWIW. I thought this last episode was a good episode, but it has been a bad season all together. I agree the season has moved quickly and has been an overall let down. I will say this seems to happen with all shows once the characters and situations become played out. I am glad they are ending it, but could have been executed (no pun intended) better.
  8. Thanks. That is what I have been doing, however, it seems that in the cut- throat world of 24:24 I may not have the time.
  9. Looks like an interesting article. I always wondered about colors, do we see them the same or have we just been told what to call them?

    Land Cruiser, Sorry I cannot answer your question,but hoping to see some feedback on what you found. I live in New Hampshire and Quebec would be the closest place for me to try and locate some CCs. -Tom
  11. I have not tried dry boxing yet, but until recently I have only been smoking non-CC and had no reason to. I do like the idea of dry boxing and I am working my coolidor/humidor(s) into staged approach from long-term storage (years), mid-range (months), to smoking (7-10 days).
  12. Just finished reading through all 19 pages of this topic. Great introduction to the Forums and a lot of great information. Now I just need to dial in the 24:24 timing!!! I read the 24:24 guide and have monitored the 24:24 posts over the past 2 weeks, looks like fun. I do wish sizes (Ring/Length) were listed in the 24:24, but I will become more familiar with the Vitolas and this should be a non-issue.
  13. How are ya, glad to be here. I discovered the forum after picking up my first Cubans on a trip to Canada last month (RYJ Cr. and Monte #5). I have been smoking cigars regularly since 2009 and always enjoyed smaller ring gauges (38-44). In my region, large ring gauges seem to dominate the local B&Ms and online searches for mild-medium panatela, lonsdale, lancero, etc. kept pushing me towards Cubans. All that being said, I am just getting started and joined the forum to learn as much I can and avoid the counterfeits. I already took advantage of my first 24:24 and look forward to many more. -Tom
