    Cigar tube idea (with pics)

    Anyone ever seen what a 2 liter soda bottle looks like before it's formed into shape? They look like this: I ended up with a handful of these and had an idea... Sure enough, a Robusto fits exactly into it. This particular tube had the cap screwed on, removed, put back on, etc. When you...

    I dropped my humi...

    Yes, you read that right. I keep my humi on a shelf in my closet to keep my little boy out of it. This means I can't lift the lid without pulling it out because there's another shelf right above it. It's about a 100-count size, and I can barely grip it in one hand, which is what I was doing as...

    420 quart cooler at Cabela's - anyone crazy enough to use as a coolerdor?

    I just got the new Cabela's catalog and they have the "Cabela's Outfitter Grizzly Cooler - 420-Qt." Anyone ever think about using one of these as a coolerdor? By my calculations that should "only" take about 5 pounds of beads, and hold a LOT of cigars! :ss -Pete

    I think I was just Cohibo'd

    Someone who I know, but not well, gave me a stick upon discovering I smoke cigars. The bad reads Habana Cuba - Premiere Selection. I tried Google and came up with nothing. He gave it to me with the ol' wink & nod, and right then I figured I'd been Cohibo'd. Against my better judgment, I fired...

    Is wood needed inside a tupperdor?

    I tried a couple searches, and I see it's highly recommended that a coolerdor/tupperador have some Spanish cedar inside. But is it needed? I'm using a plastic box (Pelican case) that has a little foam inside, RH control, but no wood. It's a smaller box so if I added some wood it would only be...

    Recommend me some cigars based on my likes/dislikes - Noob wants advice

    I'm hoping you Gorillas can point me toward some new sticks to try based on my likes/dislikes. I am not refined enough to pick out the different flavors I like, but I do have some opinions so far: Hoyo de Monterey Excalibur - one of my favorites so far, both the regular and 1066. Coronado by La...

    Lost my lunchtime smoking spot

    Since I'm still pretty new to the leaf, it's been only the past two weeks that I've had a lunchtime cigar, maybe two or three times a week.I'd been walking down to a 20 acre grass field type park that's outlined with a paved path and the occasional bench here and there. I've always entered and...

    recommend a two-stick case up to 60 ga?

    Can you recommend a two-stick case that will take up to a 60ga? I'd prefer the type with two metal tubes that have screw caps, but I'd settle for any two-stick case. Price is more important than looks. Thanks in advance, Pete

    Premature extinguish, and a nice stick to make up for it

    With some good advice from the Gorillas, I recently fessed up to my wife that I want cigars to be the regular thing rather than the rare exception. With that, last night she had no problem when I said, "I'm going over to a buddies house to have a cigar". I get to his house, hand him an Oliva G...

    In Denial or Incognito?

    First off I’d like to apologize for my lack of participation since joining The Jungle. I know that the first 642 questions I’ll have can be answered with three simple words – “search the forum”. So as a n00b, I am spending all my time reading/searching and not actively participating. Here's my...
