    Holiday Smack Down in A-Stan!!!

    Wow, I can't even begin to explain to you guys how perfectly timed this was. Dave, you are a monster, an uncaged animal and an amazing friend who's dedication to generosity and selflessness know no bounds. Thank you!

    Pictures will come as soon as I get completely up on my networks, but for now, let me tell you guys how amazing the timing of this destruction was. I'm not sure who likes moving, if anyone. I hate it, it sucks, but it is ten times worse when deployed. I've spent the last few days, along with everyone else in my unit, packing, organizing convoys and hilo flights, heavy equipment for moving containers loaded with our gear, escorts for workers and more. Last night, I finally start moving to the next camp on a convoy, that took an extremely stressing turn resulting in a huge delay. I finally got to the next camp, and set my things down, to include my humidor and went on to my tent to unpack my bags and retrieve some packages I had been told were waiting for me.

    I brought the packages back to the office to discover that in that short amount of time, someone had snuck in and stolen my Opus X Perfexcion X. I had ordered three, one for a younger troop in my office for X-mas, one for me for X-mas and one for me for new years. Thankfully they only took one, but I was absolutely heart broken. This was the worst night of my deployment. The only things I have over here that I value at all are my cigars, and had someone walked in while I was here and been excited to see those Opus', I would have handed them one saying; "This was going to be my New Years smoke, but Merry Christmas. I have another, don't worry about it." This combined with the issues on the convoy and I was about as low as I've been this entire deployment.

    After I finished sulking around and being upset for a bit I finally checked out the packages that were waiting from me to see that not one, not two, but three of them were from Dave!!! That's right Dave, A.K.A. Smelvis just dropped three bombs on me and my fellow troops. At this point, as manly as I could have tried to be, my eyes were filled with tears. I ripped through those boxes like a cracked out kid on Christmas. PILES of Cigars!!! There was a Siglo, a Tatuaje, a Padron and TONS of others I only knew to be amazing from having heard of them. There were maybe only a few cigars that I had previously tried in there. There were tons of snacks and food and toiletries, which immediately got ransacked! I hadn't eaten in about 24 hours and hadn't showered in about as long. I was starving and smelled to high hell! Do you know how amazing Ramen noodles are at that point?! Hahaha, they were delicious. I've already started scoping around and found a few other Cigar clubs here, and when the rest of my Cigar Club gets here, I will have the means now to play Stogie Santa and I can't imagine a more amazing way for me to spend Christmas!

    Thank you Smelvis, Golden Mac Kid, Shuckins and absolutely everyone on the extremely long list of folks to participate in this mass bombing for the troops. You've brought a grown man to tears, I hope you're all proud of yourselves!

    Thank you everyone again, I'm still really very choked up over this. I really can't begin to adequately put into words what you all have done, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I can't wait to get the rest of the humidors back in the next convoy today so I can let the rest of these sticks that couldn't fit in my personal humi get some rest and then start roaming to the different POC's I've gathered for cigar clubs and pile some stogies on folks.

    As soon as my networks get back up, there will be pictures of the down right massive devestation!!!

    So, my network went back down, and is only barely limping along, but I thought I would let you guys know the current reach of your generosity! So far, the stogies have been passed along to 4 cigar clubs (including mine), as well as 6 individuals that weren't a part of a club, to include cutters, matches and the like. I can't wait to put up the pictures!!! And I am by no means even remotely finished yet! I get a couple hours off tomorrow for some recoup time after the move and I am roaming this base and dropping the baccy bombs!

    It's going to freaking rock!

    Get a hold of Smelvis on the forums here. These boxes were a part of the holiday drive he and several others put together, but he's always sending out packages and I'm sure he can always use the help.
