tips and tricks

So, I always do a bit of research before a flight to another city, making sure I can find a local smoke shop and places to enjoy my cigars. I’ll pick up a few cheapie throw away lighters and cutters, or possibly the people I’m meeting have all the necessary paraphernalia to make the visit a pleasant one. Sometimes I’ll even find a place that the locals didn’t even know was there. What really stinks is when the people I’m seeing don’t like cigars and I have to go off into the late night, alone with my tobacco fire sticks, but sometimes that works out great as I end up meeting some really cool people. When you find another cigar smoker, you find a new friend.

There’sthe road trip. First off, I have heard that some cities are actually making it illegal to smoke while you drive! Un-freaking real! Big Brother has his intrusive nose in a lot of ridiculous places, but keep it the hell out of my car, goddamit! Having cigars during a road trip passes the time wonderfully, as it’s almost like having a best friend along with you while motoring along some distant highway. I love to smoke when I drive – especially if it’s long trip as I pick out my stoags ahead of time, as well as what drinks may accompany them. Coffee and a good stick while cruising along is heaven. Then you may just hit some bad traffic, but no need to worry as your leafy companion will keep your sanity in check. While others are losing their minds in the bumper to bumper hell, you keep cool and collected, sometimes almost wishing the traffic world keep up, all so you and your precious cigar could spend just a little more quality time together.

Lastly, a boat ride is a tremendous way to enjoy a cigar. Whether a ferry or a cruise, I head to the top deck and either look for other folks of my own ilk who are searching to partake in a smoke, or I find a secluded spot and relax, relax, relax. When the weather is great, the ocean breeze is blowing, and the smell of the open seas are abundant, a cigar on the waterways is immensely enjoyable. Plus, you got to kill time between buffet attacks every two hours.

Traveling and cigars - what a novel idea. So, if you’re going anywhere, sometime soon, I advise you to do a little research and a little planning and your trek will be a joyous one. Well, at least the time spent with your beloved cigars will be. Smoke ‘em when you got ‘em, my brothers of the leaf.
