All kidding aside, afaik, Steve has been an upstanding BOTL and can't imagine him doing anything bad like absconding with a few cigars. Hope nothing is seriously wrong.

I haven't seen him text in a few days but last I heard he had some leaky pipes in his house, so could just be real life stuff is keeping him busy at the moment. I am 99.9% sure he won't disappear with the pass.

I talked to him earlier in the week. I don't believe that anything is wrong. I will see if he posts anything tonight. If not, I will text him again.

I don't have a dog in this fight, but FWIW if Steve has gone dark I'm guessing there is a good reason. I know he's been burning the midnight oil lately. I wouldn't worry.

I am not in the least worried about it going missing, I am just trying to nudge him along.

Yikes. Let's get this thing moving.

First, box looks awesome, lots of elitests here for sure.

Received a great fiver from JustRelax, bolivar, old band Camacho, kristoff, punch rare corojo, Bellas artes from AJ. Thank you sir.

Takes (proposed)
06 DC GOF
tat tenderloin 17
AF DC Personal reserve

Puts (proposed)
Tat TAA 11
Tat Whore
Tat Cigwar first release

I'm not sure of the rarity of the AF as I am of the Tat so let me know what you think. Be honest.

I'll throw an extra fiver in for stinger, and a grab bag for the western three for the delay.

Steve

It's not really up to you, now is it? Also the tenderloin is going in the host bag to make the journey all the way home, now that it's mine to do with as I please. Enjoy your Easter.

Box received, safe and sound. Pretty well packed and debated for a moment whether I should switch to a bigger, larger box but the layers of previous addresses is pretty cool so gonna leave it as is.

Steve, mahalo for the Pick 'Um bag! ThumpUp

Will also recharge or replace some of the near dried out Bovedas.

Takes and Puts tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

Sorry, been slacking. Wide array of good looking smokes so having a harder time than anticipated in deciding. For sure I'll have proposed Takes and Puts by tomorrow and if they're okay, will have the box in the mail on Monday.

Lotta rain yesterday and overcast but no rain today so did some yardwork.

Decided to use a different box to get it to Euodias. Original box didn't have quite enough protection for the many, many bags of seegars / stogies / sticks. ETA is tomorrow.

I liked them but you're the best judge. Don't keep staring at them, spark one up and see for yourself.

Once you get it, you can always right-size the box.

Got the package today. I'll post takes and puts once I decipher all of the instructions and send it off again once I figure out how to repack it. The damage is immense. My toddler has already ran off with one of the backscratchers and is now assaulting his brother with it.

We okay with taking NCs and putting same value CCs in their place?

Bolivar BF
Montecristo Double Edmundo

Put:
H. Upmann Sir Winston
H. Upmann Royal Robusto
LFD La Nox
Af Anejo 888
Illusione Singulare 2014 (OR, not the rerelease)

Fair?

Didn't expect the box to land yet, so I was surprised when I got home from dinner last night and saw it sitting on the glider chair on the porch. Opened it this morning: lotsa goodies. Thank yous to sd72 and Palama for their thoughtful treats. Got a busy day ahead with the grandkids, so I'm gonna have to ponder the takes and puts later tonight or tomorrow, and then send the box home to stinger on Mon. When are you getting home David?

Awesome. I can't wait to see what is in it. I am wondering if any of the cigars made the whole trip without getting taken.

WOW. The box has made it home. Apparently while on the trip it ate another box and came back way fatter than it left.

I did a quick look and it seems that everyone went way beyond nice. There are some fantastic cigars in there. Thank you all very much for the extras. (Next time I will not forget to mention "no host bag". ) in the meantime I will happily ash these and enjoy them thoroughly.

I will post a final list if you guys would like. Let me know.
