I may have to smoke one long distance with you and Jake, so keep us posted. A fitting end to a great pass.

They look good to me.

There is a rarity factor with the "Puff" MFLB, but not sure what it is after the second shop started selling them. I think the OR "Puff" sticks would hold a higher rarity, but not sure...Jake???

True statement....that is the only one I raised an eyebrow about. The discussion on the rarity for this particular smoke was a few pages back....with the price point detailed. I think it might need a little more than an 888 solely on rarity.

Either a stick with a little more rarity, but not obnoxious (Ex: Anejo) or something with a slightly higher MSRP to make up the difference.

I was afraid of that. My "collection" is rather lopsided so I might let that one drop.
The only other thing on my list from last night is this,so I'll toss it out there:

Take (75) My Father Le Bijou "Puff N Stuff" Corona Gorda ($6.52-$8.26)
Put RP 1990 Sixty- (holts9.70\serious8.60\smokeinn9.70)- 9.33

Yea Jake thanks for hosting this pass. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. Sad to see this coming to an end! I donct think we could have had a greater group of newbies. Plus we made it thru without one problem.

Joe nice p/t's to finish her up. If you get a chance can you post a final pic of the pass and since you are doing a handoff we should get a pic of you and Jake enjoying a smoke during the meeting on Saturday. Hope you guys have a good time if I ever get out to Houston I know who's doors ill be knocking on.

Thanks again

Paul

After reading some of the Horror story Pass threads, I was real leery of participating in this one. I knew I wanted the baptism though, so, what the hell. I am very happy to have had my first experience with a pass be with such a fine group of young men. Flawless, friendly and educating. Thanks for the efforts you all have made, and Jake thanks for taking a chance with us.

I pulled the final P/T because the RP is damaged, and didn't realize it until I was bagging everything up. I thought I had another one but its eluding me now. If I find it tonight I'll edit the post.

Time to go take a final pic and box it all up, see you tomorrow Jake!
