Welcome to Cigar on the Road!!
I’m the Professor and I spend my summers traveling the country seeing great sights, visiting cigar shops, enjoying a cigar or two, and meeting new people. Traveling with Tawny, my Mini-Aussie and towing my 30 foot travel trailer, I work my way around the US and Canada stopping in at the many cigar shops along the way. I also make the occasional trip overseas. My travels are documented in the travel log found in the following link.
So what can you expect to find in the blog? Well you won’t find detail cigar reviews. There are enough of those blogs out there. You won’t find the luxury items found in Cigar Aficionado. I don’t travel by private jet. What you will find are tales from the road, stories of the every day cigar smoker and the experience of enjoying a fine cigar. What makes cigars fun to me are the conversations with Brothers and Sisters of the Leaf that I engage in along my travels. There are some good stories around a campfire in an RV park or on the docks of a marina as well.
I have only been smoking cigars for a few years, but quickly became immersed in the hobby. The draw is both the social and meditative qualities of the cigar experience. From a social aspect, I love sitting around my local cigar lounge in Colmar, PA (www.cigarcigarspa.com) enjoying engaging conversations, a cocktail, and a little poker. If I am not on the road this is where you can find me. On the road I enjoy joining the conversations in the cigar shops across the country and the world. I find that the Brothers of the Leaf are always happy to have new blood in the lounge to provide a diversion from the same old stories, or a new audience for those stories. From a meditative standpoint, my travels provide the chance to commune with nature while enjoying a cigar. There is nothing like a long hike to a waterfall and then lighting up a fine cigar and listen to the water flow or pouring a nice Scotch and plopping down in a lawn chair with a cigar around a campfire. What can I say life is good!
Join me on my travels and experience the ultimate cigar road trip! For immediate updates follow my on Twitter @cigarontheroad, on Instagram, and Facebook. I also write a monthly column for digital magazine The Cigar Lounger (www.thecigarlounger.com), a free publication for the regular cigar smoker.
Remember its all about the journey!
Before my summer 2013 travels I appeared Over a Cigar internet radio show and podcast laying out my route for the summer cigar road trip. Check out the broadcast in the link below.
The Professor’s Travel Log
I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move… Robert Louis Stevenson
There’s something about smoking a cigar that feels like a celebration. It’s like a fine wine. There’s a quality, a workmanship, a passion that goes into the smoking of a fine cigar… Demi Moore
