  1. I picked up "The Treasure Dome" as an imperfect years ago for a little over $100. I really wasn't expecting much but it is a beautiful humidor, has a great seal and I have had some cigars that have spent years inside. Does a great job at holding the humidity. I think it is a 250 count. As always, ditch the garbage humidifier and hygrometer.
  2. Way to go man! She's a beaut! Humidor ain't too shabby either.
  3. I use cast iron for everything.
  4. I have been known to spontaneously burst into song and dance around the camp fire when Brittney Spears' "Toxic" comes on. It's a refreshing departure from the usual Death/ Black metal stuff that is spewing from my radio.
  5. I rather enjoy Piedra, to be honest. I'm out now, but I generally like to have a box or two on hand. They are tasty little numbers that merely lack complexity. The price can't be beat! I've never had a Vegueros, so I can't comment on those. I've had three or four Fonseca's...didn't enjoy them very much. While I do have a few gifted Guantanameras in my humidor, I've never actually tried one. Perhaps I'll do that while cleaning the garage today. I vote none!
  6. I'm going to go back to...15 years ago, maybe? I had registered with CA's website and they had a promotion where a name was drawn every month for a free box. Now, I in no way expected to win plus I am in Canada, so I wouldn't have imagined that they would even try sending me a box. Well lo and behold, I come home from work one day to find a box of Don Tomas something or other in my mailbox! That was a great day and of course, to me, they were just about the best cigars that money could buy!
  7. I've never understood why it is considered a crisis to finally be able to afford that which you have always desired. My pick changes on a daily basis but lately it teeters between a Viper or a GTR. Or maybe a 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT.
  8. I think that this is the best idea yet. A friend of mine's ex-wife sent him to one of these Nascar Experience things where you get to drive the cars around the track. He still talks about it. I hate Nascar but I would love to take one for a rip.

    404 - Not Found. I tried digging around the site a bit to no avail.
  10. My nephew gave me a bag of "Death Wish" coffee for Christmas. Horrid stuff. It gets so many good reviews, I just don't understand.
  11. Welcome! I love upstate NY. I spend a lot of time in the Chazy Lake/ Lyon Mountain area.
  12. I'm running the Behmor as well. I haven't bothered with the upgrade yet. I always order the beans from sweet maria's. I will roast 1/2 lb. at a time and also enjoy tasting the differences from fresh to 3 days old. I still prefer fresh, right out of the roaster. Day three is usually pretty fantastic as well but I find the 1 and 2 day old beans seem to lose their way. It's pretty interesting, really. I generally have 7 or 8 different beans on hand and I always drink it black. I also have settled on the single cup pour over method as the one for me.
  13. +2...doesn't help with the running out of fresh, home roasted beans though. I refuse to run out. When I'm down to 5 lbs. of green beans, I order the next 20 lbs.
