That's gotta be some kind of record. That wasn't even their next day service.

T- #12 Cuaba Divinos ($3.40) / P- Olor Fuerte Magnum ($4.08)


hey Jim

Messed up on this one... I was sure I still had some Magnums in the humi, but I can't seem to find them :blush: Do you mind if I substitute a Torano Exodus '59 Silver robusto?

By the way, just for curiousity... I just noticed this thread is still in the "open passes" section rather than the "passes in progress"... Does that mean we'll be starting soon? :p

I agree guys, this was a great time and a heck of a first experience for me. I think it'd be good to drum up a little more interest for a North of the border pass again early next year. I do have a couple old elementary school friends I've reconnected with that smoke cigars, but they haven't signed up on CP yet.. so it's possible the next time a pass stops in Winnipeg there might be a 3 person hand off before traveling with Canada Post again.

CT '59 Robusto is good. Matter of fact, I wish I had one of those to smoke this morning. I don't keep a lot of milder smokes around, but this one would be sweet right now.


SNIP<<<<so it's possible the next time a pass stops in Winnipeg there might be a 3 person hand off before traveling with Canada Post again.


When that happens, it's great. I was involved in a couple of passes where 3 of us met up at a B&M in Detroit and made away with 3 legs of a pass in an hour. It was a hell of a blast. (Of course, there's always side passes & trades going on and some "Up-close 'n personal" bombing attacks.)

is Canada Post slacking off, or do we have a problem? the tracking number hasn't been updated in way too long, and the last report said

Picked it up today and in great shape.

Thank you all kindly, for the extras, and for making this pass a success.

Looking forward to the next one.

Dieppe must be a black hole of postal packages like the Missassauga warehouse. I've had 5 (on my 5th currently) that have landed in the Mississauga depot from out west coming to Ottawa and they always sit there for days. Two I've had sit there for WEEKS.

Thanks again Jim, it was great. Glad everything made it back in good condition.

Also, if you're interested in moving over to Gros Morne my parents have a nice place on the water for sale. :whistling:

Thanks again for hosting and putting a great selection of cigars in for us to pick and choose from. It's good to know the packaging didn't fail on the cross-Canada tour.

I think reciprocating is the least we could do considering your generosity. Cheers!

Just wanted to make sure Shamrocker didn't get the last word on this thread. He has way to many posts as it is!
