Well hope away McDuff!

Um...scented or unscented?

__________________

Here's the kind of thing I'm pulling together:

Tins (one each) - (tin code or date noted, if known) :

PCCA Tuscany (072496)
C&D Sunday Picnic (010912)
McClelland Pebblecut (53 10)
Escudo
MacBaren HH Old Dark Fired (large) (7/2012)
Peterson University Flake (2/2013)
Peterson Irish Flake 3/2014)
Dunhill Flake (marked 2/2013 but earlier I think)
Sorensen Flake
Gawith St.James Flake
Gawith FireDance Flake
(maybe one more to make an even dozen)

Bulk Blends (there are multiple bags of some items, if I thought more would like a sample, etc.) and (weights were often function of what I had left to donate):

(2) Stonehaven (aged) 1 oz.
(2) McClelland #27 VA (circa 2000) 1/2 oz.
(1) Condor Blended (10/2013) 50 gm.
(6) Edgeworth Ready Rubbed (last run or close) 1 oz.
(2) Semois (just got it) 1 oz. dry
(2) C&D Night Train (5 yrs +) 1 1/2 oz.
(2) Gawith Bob's Chocolate Flake (aged over 10 yes) 1 oz.

So that's 17 bags thus far.

I'll add more tomorrow...focusing on Lakeland and other Gawith...Dark Plug...Dark Flake Scented...#7 Broken Flake...old, old Ennerdale...Cob...Brown Scented...Kendal Plug...Olde Skidmark...etc., etc., etc., etc.

So...how am I doing?

Looks like a mighty fine list you got there.  Sorry I was away today and yesterday.  Work got me by the short ones yesterday and today, I paid the piper with much needed rest.

BTW, there look to be some very yummy blends in there. I have some SG chocolate flake from 2010 that I may toss in when the box gets here. I love the stuff.

OK - here I'm assuming that if someone CARES about an issue, or guideline, etc. then they will comment on it, when asked.

So it would seem I'm on the right track with my picks.

I found the correct box (Large Priority Flat Rate) and have begun loading...will finalize bulk blend choices plus some cigars tomorrow, planning toward a Monday shipping date. I might just organize the cigars to be gratis, one bag with several favorites of mine for each player to take...no expectation anything will be returned.

And PozzSka - if you want to get the box out your way, I'll need that address!!!

If anyone has any specific special requests, today is the last day I can respond.

Also, remember that the cigars are freebies, each player takes a bag. I found a great stash of highly desirable (to me) items I'm going to put in. If you want to put any cigars back in, they would be apart from the trade-able items. In other words you would be sending it/them straight to me, and I'm not expecting nor really wanting anything back in that category. But if someone wants to send me something I'll smoke it fer sure.

The above is partly because of this: Someone has asked me about players doing a 'Host Bag'. Sometimes players want to designate something small specifically for the host, keeping it apart from tradable items. That's OK I guess, not necessary, but so long as it's small it's OK. I can't really stop you, and you'll do what you want anyway, so whatever. I'll tell you, one thing that I'm always excited to have someone send me are a few of those rubber bit protectors. I always use 'em and never seem to have enough. So there.

Enough for now. The ball's in my court. I've got lots to get done today, so I'll get on with it.

Later.

Just leave enough room in the box for us to make additions and bonus goodies!

Got it covered. For one thing, as guys take their cigar bags out that incrementally allows more and more space. And I put the tins and bags inside separate indentical boxes inside the main box for protection and 'just cause' so when and if those are ditched there would be a fair bit more room.

I guess I started with a box about 25% too big...which seemed just about right.

OK - final additions have been made. Items (plus the cigars) are as follows:

(2) Ennerdale Flake (8 - 10 yrs) 1 oz.
(2) Dark Flake Scented 1 oz.
(2) Dark Plug (5 - 6 yrs) 1 oz.
(2) Kendal Plug 1 oz.
(2) Bracken Flake (2007) 1 oz.
(2) Coniston Cut Plug 1 oz.
(1) #7 Broken Flake 1 oz. +

So that's another 13 bags...total = 30 bags!

Add then added:

(1) Peretti Oriental #40 1/2 oz +
(2) Esoterica Ramsgate 1 oz.
(2) Esoterica Blackpool 1 oz.
(2) Gawith Glengarry Flake 1/2 oz.

So we end up with 37 total bags. That's it. Gotta work on the address roster and the put and take master lists. Whew!

Ponder...ponder...mull...mulll...mull...


Hmmm. Is a puzzlement. In every box pass I remember being involved with of managing myself there has been a master list of items that went along with the box. On that list players signed for both their takes and their puts. It's like inventory management. Not a big thing to produce, maybe an hour or so using a DB or Table thing in MS Office...or a bit longer with art level paper, a surprisingly expensive fountain pen and even more surprisingly expensive Japanese ink...an art project fee sure.

But is that even needed, or is it just an example of anal redundancy? I mean, as long as there's a master list online...as long as players list their takes and puts...and as long as the online list is kept up and accurate...do we really need a paper list in the box. Anyone can copy and print an online master list is they want paper, after all.

So as soon as I can get the dog off my chest, I'll do that.

That's really something...I might have just shed a tear. Going down periscope for the next 24 or so due to work stuff, but stand ready and able for whatever's clever!

Bingo!

We is there! The box is sealed and addressed. All I included was an address list. The first player to get the box can send to whomever he wants, and so on down the line to the end.

If at any point along the way someone has questions just PM me or post them here.

All players must post the items they take and the items they add back in (of equal value or better).

Cigars are free, no puts required. I though about making the Edgeworth free as well, but there's only six bags and someone would be left out. If anyone wants to volunteer to be 'out' or maybe split a bag with someone, I'll declare the ERR a freebie as well. Pretty cool, eh?

The first person to receive the box is:

jusanmedusa

This is due to his being cool enough to check dates with me for when he would be in Lower Slobovia, or whatever. Anyway, it goes out today, headed for Juan's place.

This is not intended to be a quiet, somber event. Chat it up, boys. It's part of the fun.

I'll sit out the Edgeworth, as I've already tried it

I think it comes down to doing something right in a past life, not so much how I shine in this one. I can guarantee I won't be able to molest, I mean disfigure, I mean exchange that whole grand inventory.

Sorry I have been so quiet lately. Work has had me so busy, that I crashed and burned this weekend. Now that I am feeling quite human again, I shall be online more. I actually took today off from work as I was not fully recovered. This looks like an excellent box list. I shall do my best to include worthy additions.

Regarding my comment on the Semois being very dry. I mean it's brittle it's so dry...but as I understand that's the way it's intended. It certainly seems to smoke well that way.
