    If I can get 2-3 recharges out of a single packet I'll be happy, I think.

    Online some people have gotten YEARS out of their packets.

    It's mostly about laziness for me.  Maybe the osmosis method was working, but might take more like 2+ weeks.  I put them in a jar which I'm pretty sure is almost air-tight, so we'll see how that goes.

    My other thought was to just put a shot glass of distilled water in my humidor to recharge, but I'm not sure if they can actually keep up with that much humidity.  Might be worth the experiment.

    Got to meet the Illustrious Potentate Justin tonight at Cigars. Gave him a couple of sticks. Hope he won't be a stranger. It's been about 6 years since I saw him. Next time I'll have a Tre-J's gift pack for you. I did buy a box of The Negotiator tonight from them. Nice 35 minutes smoke. Their is a huge story behind that cigar that only Jay can tell you.

    Thank Ms Incredible once again for letting her away from you. I had a great time.

    Great seeing you and the lady last night, thanks again for the sticks.

    Having an Alec Bradley Gatekeeper tonight. Nice medium body cigar with a light draw. I've liked about every cigar I've had from them. It pairs well with the coffee stout that I'm drinking.

    I think I’m going to have that Tabak Especial you gave me tomorrow morning. It smells great, I’m really looking forward to it.

    Picked up a couple of Ashtons and Camachos at Havana Phils over the weekend.

    Had a pipe and an Illusione 888 while watching the Buckeyes game on Saturday at my local spot.  Good time.

    Currently having a My Father's La Opulencia. Very  nice. I did some research on it a few minutes ago. It was ranked top 5 in a couple of cigar polls. I really like their cigars. Any one in Cincy area they are the feature cigar at the event at Jungle Jim's Eastgate. I won't be there, but thinking I may know someone who is going...

    Tonight's feature is Crowned Heads. They have worked with other cigar manufacturers to develop a couple of blends that you can only get in Ohio. Last year it was Buckeye Land. They just released a new one for Ohio only called La Coalition. I'm having that one next.

    I was pretty bummed when I realized I couldn't make it tonight, but I'm definitely looking forward to the My Father event next Friday. I'll keep watching the Fairfield events calendar.

    Next week it's Tre J's official kick off of The Negotiator. (Which I already bought a box)

    And I was wrong about the LA Coalition. It's nationwide, not just exclusive to Ohio. Only the Buckeye Land. Just double checked with Miguel...and it's good smoke

    I report no success with the osmosis recharge method.  I got MAYBE 20%.

    Trying again doing 1 pack at a time instead of 3.  Can't see how that is going to matter.

    I'm not even going to try to recharge a cheap thing to buy. Plus I just have them in my Wynodor because I had them on hand. I have beads and gels in there that do most of the work. I've got at least 5 gel tunes, 3 gel jars, and to big bags of beads. Just checked my humidity packs and they are still soft. I actually am a little on the high side of humidity right now. Waiting for it to calm down hopefully.

    Picked up a box of those Illusione 888 candelas and a new can of aromatic pipe tobacco.

    I catch a lot of shit for liking aromatics (the mantra among my pipe-smoking brethren is that aromatics are for women and children), but I like them all the same.  More importantly, my wife likes the smell, so I catch less heat for having a pipe during the day.
