“Smoked Up” No.93

2015 has started out with the utmost of crappiness. Tuesday morning I was heading into work and was greeted with a broken window and one of my pistols was stolen from the truck. I was cold, tired and now severely aggravated. I usually conceal my pistol in the truck when I leave it for the […]


“Smoked Up” No.82

To think, I was looking forward to this summer! I was tired of the cold of the winter and dreaming of the summer. The dog days of summer are here and now I am looking forward to the fall! Cooler days means more outside cigar smoking, a few hunting and camping trips. Most of my cigar […]


“Smoked Up” No.80

From the amount of cigars I smoked the past week, I would say things are looking up. I added two cigars to my trip itinerary of seeing my friend at Oschner’s in New Orleans. It so happen to be a La Palina cigar both ways and made the solo trip a lot more manageable for me. […]


Viaje Teases Satori Arya, Cache & Collaboration for IPCPR

The Viaje Satori was released in 2010 and was my favorite cigar that year and still is one of my all time favorites. Every year since, there has been another release of the Satori. This year, Andre Farkas plans on releasing a new Satori. Teased on Andre’s Facebook page today was the Arya. From the […]


“Smoked Up” No.62

Like I said a few times before, with the crazy weather here, its amazing I haven’t gotten sick yet. It finally happened and for the last few weeks a cold has been floating around in my area. I caught it and have been fighting it for over a week now with various types of medications. […]


“Smoked Up” No. 59

The past week has been pretty crazy. I was hoping for a relaxed weekend to get some yard work done and maybe start work on my garden. Then reality hit me and I had my daughter’s third birthday to host, an 8+ hour meeting at work on Friday (that started late) and went to Ben […]


“Smoked Up” No.56

Well, I made it out of winter storm “Leon” pretty good. It got way too cold for my southern blood. Last Tuesday afternoon brought freezing rain with a few snow flurries. That night it got colder and almost all the bridges and a few roads were shut down in the area. Thursday afternoon they started opening […]


“Smoked Up” No.43

I am really enjoying the cooler weather we have gotten here lately. I just wish it would make up its mind and stick around! One day its in the 70s, the next its in the upper 80s. Its amazing how I stay from getting sick. The better weather and my new laptop allowed me to […]


“Smoked Up” No.41

The last few weeks have been very busy around the house. I took a week long vacation for a yearly hunting and camping trip with my buddies. The fresh air felt great in the lungs and was good to get away from the city life and enjoy nature. I packed a slew of cigars to […]


“Smoked Up” No.39

As I sit here on my patio, enjoying an Intemperance EC, enjoying the cooler fall-like weather, I realize the next few weeks are going to be enjoyable, but not. Enjoyable due to the fact that in a week and some days, we (friends & I) depart on a week long hunting/camping trip. But not so […]
