    It's that time again. Crawfish and Stogies! (Pics)

    I have not had fresh crawfish in years. Hard to find them at all up here, even frozen or refrigerated. Grew up in Oregon near a few streams full of them. Mighty tasty.

    Big Smoke Dates

    $200? I could buy a ticket, but would have to live on the street and dig through the dumpster behind the hotel for food. :D

    I have had a couple squares over on for the last several weeks. Fun concept and a chance to win a bunch of sticks. They have some spots open right now if anyone else wants to get in on the action.

    North to Alaska

    Salt is not used on the roads in Anchorage. They plow the roads and toss some gravel on the slippery intersections. The rest is up to your driving skills. The first couple snowfalls of the year weed out the speed demons and newbies to real winter driving. 4-wheel drive does NOT mean 4-wheel...

    North to Alaska

    Oh, almost forgot. For a great resturant that is smoker friendly, check out the Bradley House. Great food and they have a nice sign out front warning people that it is a smoke friendly establishment. They have a pretty nice filter system so unless it is really crowded, you will not notice the...

    Tampa Sweethearts

    Alaska? Did someone say Alaska? Welcome to the Great Land bro! You will either love it or hate it. Seems to be very little middle of the road folks up here. If you are into outdoor activities, you will be happy. Anchorage has some of the best trails in the nation. I ride my bike to and...

    thompson cigar company

    Their marketing rep offered me a free sampler when I first started to post on cigar forums. He wanted me to try them out and post what I thought. That was over three months ago and I still have not seen the sampler. I emailed him after 6 weeks and he said that they would be sent out right...
