Marevas (2/5)

  1. I should be able to join as well. Josh (inter4alia) shot me a text to tell me about this. Let me know where this lands!
  2. Working out is a must for me to keep me sane and keep my mental health, well...healthy. Cigars and working out. My outlets for stress, anxiety and minimizing depression. Currently I run 5 days a week. 4-5 miles a run. Though up until March I was lifting predominantly, it helped me lose 50 pounds over a 4 year period. No cardio. But then I tore my rotator cuff in February and I’ve been rehabbing it. Though it’s ready to handle weights again, covid happened and i don’t have a home gym. So running became the easiest thing for me. I had never been a runner before and i kitted myself out with a couple great pairs of running shoes (Hoka Bondi 6’s are great for heavier runners like me who have to pound out miles on pavement and concrete here in the city). Though in retrospect, i have found that the the emotional benefits from running are greater than just straight lifting, I do think I looked much better when I was lifting. Clothes fit better. Funny thing is that I am probably in the best cardiovascular condition of my entire life, but i don’t look the best by a long shot. Thankfully I have the lady locked down and happy though!

  3. Beautiful 2015 Siglo VI from our host (by way of a wonderful BOTL [mention]inter4alia [/mention]here in Chicago) Makes for a wonderful Sunday afternoon at Biggs. Thanks gents! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Same thoughts from me. I had one of these on Sunday. It’s so young. It gave me tons of peanut. But kind of fell apart halfway through the second third. I like the medium body. I think will be interesting with a few years though. A baby still. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Nice. One of my all time favorite lonsdales! A criminally underrated format at that. I have one 2010 left and then I am cashed out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Got it this spring. It’s been good. Stability fluctuated when I first bought it because I was I my using the water active humidification system. And constantly adding cigars from different vendors that ship between 65-67-70 RH. But since I added 3 pounds of heartfelt 65% beads it’s been holding steady at 64-65. I still use the active system (as they have an automated fan system in there) but replaced the water in the jars with RH beads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I believe it’s the Avallo 1000 with Accumonitor active humidification Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It’s a slippery slope Ken. First you get an Instagram account. Flash forward three months...You’re on TikTok making videos of yourself lip syncing Bruce Springsteen songs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
