    I see you've been busy making tampers, some interesting designs.

    Yep, been playing with spoon shapes (*none pictured are finished). I like the idea of a bent spoon on a tamper for messing with dottle/cake, and am trying to figure out the most comfortable and useful shape.

    Yeah.. Fishing down in H-Town and about 10 Miles down Rt.57.
    Such a great day weather wise in NJ. Couldn't ask for a better day. Gonna now do some flying on a lake from a boat for a few. This way i can relax, smoke, and have a drink or three.

    Then i'll go back on the river this late afternoon for the sulphur hatch.. Should be a relaxing day!!!

    BTW: Ruff where can i score SWR in NJ? When you were in NJ did you ever find any? Or did you just order from some place?

    I asked the girl the other week and she said they didn't have SWR or CH. Maybe this tobacco is a special order with JR? I'm gonna ask them again.. Thanks :)

    I know all three JR Cigars in NC carry a good selection of OTC tobaccos in pouch and tub, so just assumed the JR's in NJ would, is it a large store with a walk in cigar humidor?

    LOl ... I was fourteen , that was about 32 years ago , and I dont remember seeing any in town back then . Any tobacco that was made in King of Prussia , PA .... we had it .The Shop Rite food store had tobacco and there was a place going out toward Budd Lake . There was another place in and around Blairstown . They were all Mom and Pop places . I'd imagine you could check out the Gas stations , food stores ... if ya havent already .

    BTW , I went to Atanta yesterday [ disgusting place ] and stopped by a B&M and bagged a tin of Ashton Gold Rush Tobacco ... ready to light out of the tin ! The " lemon ' or what I call " bright " flavor in the blend was fantastic and balanced . It built up through the bowl to a nice Virginia blend that finished w/ a med body . For a Va , I liked it alot . The Aroma was kinda like LTF but w/ the bright aroma in there ... I know this cause afterward my wife was smoking it . For a first bowl ... impressed !

    Ruff, if you like a sharp, sweet, citrus note "bright leaf" virginia smoke you may want to try McClelland Eastern Carolina Ribbon, a lemon virginia from the east belt region.

    Side note: I do not recommend this to the inexperienced virginia smoker.

    Afternoon, gents.

    Just finished a bowl of Tordenskjold Virginia Slices that I set down before leaving for church. Now I'm puffing (barely) on Solani Silver. Pleasant afternoon so far.
