Hey Rugbysh9, I know it's easier said than done, but take it slow and think about each move you make. I would hate to see a brother fall victim to a big ole box of tobacco !

"Friends don't let friends smoke a big ole big of tobacco alone"

Andrew, I'm here for ya buddy!!! If it becomes too much to handle, you can always drop it off at my house sooner than I expected to get it! Razz

I am ALWAYS willing to step up and help a BROTHER out...........

Thought you were in Syracuse this weekend Sean, if you're in the area get your arse over to the FCI. Lots and I mean lots of samples to dive into. PB, my hat is off to you for starting this pass and allowing me the opportunity to participate. I could not believe the weight of the box and more importantly the contents. Not sure about final takes but I can promise that the GLP Odyssey will not be leaving Danbury, CT. I dove into the samples head 1st this afternoon and evening. So far I tried:

McC CC '05 in the Tim Hynick Dublin
Uhlee's White Burley in a Stanwell 245
GLP Westminster in a M. Brissett Rhodesian

Well I spent the majority of yesterday with the samples and have pretty much made it my mission to try all the Uhle's blends in the box before I give it to DP this week. Yesterday I smoked the Perfection Plug Burley and really enjoyed it. I could see myself really loving it if I mixed in some 5100 for a hint of sweetness. I smoked some more of the CC '05 this morning before I left for work and really like that issue (just proves to me that I have to sit on my 10 tins of this year's CC for at least a few years).

300 is scheduled for my "after work pre toddler home" smoke for this evening Frost

Loved the White Burley, was actually the 2nd one I tried when the box arrived Sat afternoon.

The box is moving! I'll be handing it off to DoverPipes tomorrow afternoon. This has been a great experince for me and I'm humbled to have been a part of it.
I had wanted to try some of the Haunted Bookshop but never found it among the samples, oh well. Out of the box I ended up trying the Uhle's 300, White Burly and Coniston Plug. I sampled some of the GLP Westminster and liked it so much that I took and oz. I also had about 3 pipes of the McC '05 CC as well as some of the C&D Otrthodoxy.

Takes:
1 oz. GLP Westminster
Tin GLP Odyssey
Tin Robert McConnell Scottish Cake

Puts:
1/2 tin GLP Robusto
1/3 tin C&D Evening Rise
2 oz. Smokers Haven Krumble Kake
1 oz. Boswell Premium Burley
Sealed tin CAO Liberty Flake (purchased in 06)
Sealed tin Orlik Golden Sliced

I'm already looking forward to the next one of these!!!

Guys I've got to say that there is def a bonus to having the ability to actually hand the box off. Dover's face pretty much affraid when he actually saw it and got to pry around a bit while we smoked a few pipes and shot the shit on Saturday. His face was priceless...really glad I was able to see it, jsut sad I din't have a camera ready to capture the moment and share.
