I am going camping again Memorial Day and selecting my sticks for the trip. 4 days of relaxation! What is everyone else doing for the Holiday and what would you reccommend for sticks?

    I'm working. At an outdoor lifestyle store -_-

    It's going to be hell, Memorial Day is worse than Christmas and Black Friday combined for us. The week before fathers day isn't too far behind. But on the plus side, the store director is going to sit out back and barbecue for everyone that has to work that day.

    Hmm for the sticks you should mix it up every day.
    Different vitolas different wrappers.
    Keep your pallet guessing.

    As for my plans I'm going to be on a 3 week vacation.

    same, but the promise land for me is Jackson, MS. Cannot wait to be home. Only third time in 16 months. I'm taking a lot of MOW Ruinations, a few Oliva V Maduros, a GOF, a Camacho PE, a lot of Diesels, and RP 1990s. I plan on having a cigar in my mouth the entire time for 6 days.

    I haven't been home in 3 years. I don't know what I will take, but for sure MoW, Aroma De Cuba, and Carlos Toro.

    I plan on stocking up on single malt.

    I will definitely be mixing it up. I have some Ruination stashed back and an assortment of DPG's. May throw a few Rocky's in also. Should have the GH 2002 by then as well and I have been wanting to try them. 4 nights will force me to pull 12--15 sticks for the trip.

    On Friday the 28th I will be having Carpal Tunnel and Cubital Tunnel surgery on my right hand/elbow so I won't be doing much of anything. Hand bandaged up for 3 days and elbow in a splint for a week.

    You will still have 1 good arm and have time to burn some sticks. See how things work out? LOL. Seriuosly, I had virtually the same thing done, a little different with the elbow but the result was very good. Best wishes to you.

    Thanks and you are deffinetly right about the other arm. I had the Carpal Tunnel surgery on my left hand on April 30th and it went great. I figured after 15 years of trouble, it was about time I finialy did something about it.

    I will be moving my boat from Berkeley to her new home (still yet to be decided, unfortunately). I think I'll definitely be bringing some sticks along for the ride though!

    I will be.traveling to beautiful Kent Ohio. I'm gonna take a coolerdor full of sticks so I don't feel locked into anything specific. Plus while I'm there, I will visit Kuzi's B&M, and check the place out.

    Eh, probably nothing big, sort of tight on cash right now. I always hate going out on a holiday weekend anyway, too many damn people out and about.

    No real plans as of yet. Maybe a day trip out to sister and brother in law lake house. Always a good time and with good weather will be some good smokes.

    Multi-day canoe camping trip. I'm still deciding what to bring for sticks. I think I can paddle and smoke at the same time, we'll see...

    Edit: Got my sticks decided upon. My 5 count herf-a-dor will have a 5 Vegas Gold, 5 Vegas Miami, Ccom Brazil, DPG Blue and a Ruination. Pretty even set I think.

    I think we're going to stay home. I'm not a fan of holiday travel. I plan on firing up the barbecue a few times over the course of the weekend as well as a few cigars though. I've got a bunch of stuff I need to try out from trades and cotm.
