Alright, the box is heading north to @Mich_smoker! I gotta say, this was a tough one. Honestly, if I'd had enough interesting replacement sticks, I would've basically swapped out the whole box, because there were so many in there I wanted to try. As it was, I took five and left five more in their place.

Here's what I took:

Arturo Fuente Anejo: $11.00
Alec Bradley Tempus Maduro: $7.00
Ashton Aged Maduro Robusto: $9.70
Oliva Serie O Maduro Robusto: $7.30
300 Hands Churchill: $6.80

In exchange, I added the following sticks:

Camacho Triple Maduro Robusto: $9.70
Nub Double Maduro 460 (Gordo): $8.50
AJ Fernandez La Gran Llave Torpedo: $9.50
PDR 1878 Capa Madura Robusto: $4.90
Herrera Esteli Norteño Corona Extra: $8.50

(I based the Norteño price on the CI price for Short Corona Gorda, which is the same RG as the Corona Extra, but just a hair shorter. So somebody gets an extra .05" of Norteño goodness.)

I took one stick and a bottle opener out of the freebie bag. (Because who doesn't need an extra bottle opener?)

And I left an Oliva G Robusto, a Macanudo HPC, and Punch Slim Panatella in the freebie bag.

Finally, here's the tracking number for the next leg of the trip:

This was a lot of fun, and I appreciate @Wheels Up getting things rolling. I'm excited to try these new additions to my stash!

Nice job, @greypilgrim! I'm glad you found something in there you liked. I enjoy box passes and I'm glad some of you are enjoying this one. Cigars are better enjoyed when shared with friends.

Just a reminder: you guys are welcome to take anything and everything from the "Freebies" pile without any expectation of adding back to it unless you just want to hit the next guy in line. The cigars I put in there to begin with were seriously just some extras that I didn't want taking up space in my humidor and my company makes those bottle openers, so I have access to thousands of them for free (I'm encouraged to give them away). I don't want to discourage anyone from tossing in something for the next guy in line if you want to bomb them, just know that when I say that the contents of that bag are *Free* with no obligation to put something back, I truly mean free with no stings attached.

Good job on keeping this pass moving along, and the selection for the next victims... I mean "participants" is looking great!

Update to the pass status:

1. @Wheels Up -> @s1n3 n0m1n3 = Complete
2. @s1n3 n0m1n3 -> @greypilgrim76 = Complete
3. @greypilgrim76 -> @Mich_smoker = Shipped
4. @Mich_smoker -> @Natefiet = On Deck
5. @Natefiet -> @CgarDann
6. @CgarDann -> @Olecharlie
7. @Olecharlie -> @Ren Huggins
8. @Ren Huggins -> @zcziggy
9 @zcziggy -> @Wheels Up
