I've only been a member of this group for 6 months or so, and although I've smoked a pipe for a good number of years, I've still learned a lot from other member's experiences.

Smoked handmade cigars for only about a year and if I had have had to depend on the usenet for any information, I would still be waiting for the flames to go out. I don't mean to imply everyone in alt.smoking.cigars is some kind of a creep waiting to pounch on any unfamiliar poster, but if a new smoker wants any help over there, they have to pay their dues so to speak.

The civility here is truly refreshing and posters like Da Klugs are really a true asset to the forum, and the time and effort such members put into there posts have, I'm sure, helped more new smokers than they will ever realize.:tu

My wife thinks this is insane. People send you cigars, people who don't even know you? I say yep, and I send stogies out as well to people I don't know, now I know them. Today I recieve 3 c's, and one NC from the make a wish, she thinks its great, but can't imagine why people do it. I tell her, and my friends about the amazing people here, and the cyber friendships people form, she thinks it is great, as do I.
I am in fact smokin a very nice party hanana sent from one of those peeps.
It really gives one a warm feeling about PEOPLE in general. Glad to be a part of it.

I went to my first Herf this past weekend.

People thought I was nuts traveling a total 300 miles to spend some time with people I had never met.

I had a great time sharing with guys just like me. They had the same feeling about stogies and life in general.

I have found a brotherhood alive and well here at Club Stogie!

We meet locally in Stumptown pretty regularly now. I have flown to Cali and made sure my trip to Chi-Town had a herf on the itinerary. This summer, SoCal is on the calendar and in the fall, I am looking up the Boston area crew to do it again. There is few things better than herfin' with your friends.

Shack Herf IV - WOW!
I've flown 2500 miles one way just for a (Shack) herf. And I will do it again in a heartbeat.

I must say that the new friends I have found here at CS are truly special!
Not only do we share a love of the leaf, but so many other hobbies and things that go beyond CS. It really is a great place. Hopefully as I spend more time here I will be able to reach out farther to meet some of my SoCal brothers and members in other states. :tu

Derek, It sure would be cool to have a high NorCal herf and tour the Sierra Nevada brewery! :ss
