Random quote: "This is my humidor. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My humidor is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My humidor, without cigars, is useless. Without my cigars, my humidor is useless. I must season my humidor true. I must season my humidor correct and perfect the first time for it is the quality that counts. I must smoke my cigars every chance I get. I will... My humior and myself know that what counts in this herf is not the cigars we trade, the size of the cigars, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the quality of storage that counts. We will store true perfect cigars in perfect conditions... My humidor is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weakness, its strength, its temperature, its accessories, its cedar and humidifications devices. I will keep my humidor clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready to smoke at any given time. We will become part of each other. We will.... Before God I swear this creed. My humidor and myself are the defenders of my cigars. We are the masters of our cigars. We are the saviors of my sticks. So be it, until victory is America's and there is no cigars to smoke, but whats left in your humidor." - Elliot Youngstrom

8th Annual Cigars for Troops Drive

It's that time of year again! Even though the holiday season is a couple months away, starting early will give everyone who wants to participate time to send a care package. Here are the previous years' threads:

2010 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=5894...
2011 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=9907...
2012 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=1503...

2014 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=2926...
2015 - http://www.cigargeeks.com/community/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=3519...

Historic Donations
2010 - 525 Cigars
2011 - 587 Cigars
2012 - 676 Cigars
2013 - 1,343 Cigars
2014 - 1,617 Cigars
2015 - 1,619 Cigars

The basic rules:

*The cutoff will be October 31st for getting packages/donations in the mail to me. This will allow me enough time to get them shipped and the soldiers receive them before the holidays.

*This is open to anyone, whether you are a vet or newbie. The more the merrier! This is your chance to get that coveted "Troop Supporter" badge.

*Send as many cigars as you would like. Even a fiver will make a difference. Cutters and/or matches would also be appreciated, as well as sealed pipe tobacco, pipes, pipe cleaners, etc. Please, no lighters – I’m trying to avoid any problems with USPS.

*Cigars with cellophane travel better. However, if you have cigars without cellophane, feel free to send them. Any donations of 5/6 finger bags is also appreciated.

*Packages can be drop shipped to me from vendors. Members have done this in years past with success.

*Please PM me for my mailing address and/or if you send a package. I'd like to avoid boxes sitting on my doorstep in case I'm traveling.

*I will keep a running list of those that have expressed interest along with if I received the package. If you commit to donating early on and decide it can't be done, no harm, no foul.

*Paul (SenorPablo) has generously offered to cover all shipping costs. Thanks Paul!

Last year, I created a virtual humidor with all the cigars. Depending on the response, I might do that again this year. For those of you who keep track of your cigars in the virtual humidor or excel, providing a list of the donated cigars when you send them helps a LOT in this effort.

One other note: if you know of a group deployed oversees, especially in an area of conflict, please nominate them by sending me a PM. We typically send 3-4 packages, so I'd like to spread the wealth.

As always, feel free to post any questions!
