Ya that's the Macanudo Maduro Vintage 1997. 13 per box for a 13 year old wrapper. Each has a metal band because the aged wrapper is "too delicate" to handle. Ha.

I have a 7700. As others have send it's useful for maintaining a proper crease, but it's not capable of setting one which is what I was hoping for. If anyone in the SF Bay Area is interested, it's yours for $100. I want to upgrade to this bad boy: http://www.hammacher.com/Product/75427?source=FROOGLE
I did something similar after school and backpacked in Japan, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, China, and ended with a 2 month stint working for an Ashoka fellow in New Delhi. It was a hell of a trip and made me a better person. My main advice is to research the hell out of the organization you will be volunteering for. If they suck it can be a major drag. Invest in a good backpack too. I used an Osprey 65 liter and it was a joy.
I drove over that there bridge today.
For scrambling I love the REI Flash 18.
I've got a sport jacket that fits me great but has cheesey brass buttons. Anyone know where I can pick up real or replica "designer" buttons? I quite like the brass Zegna blazer buttons. Thanks.
Steam room shave while bro'n out naked at the Club.
How could you tell it wasn't go anywhere?
