use to smoke pipes way back in the early to mid 1970's and again around 1980 for a bit, but not since then. However a couple months back I stopped the cigars and most of my Dip and picked up my old pipes and said I spent so much on these why not smoke them. Anyway use to have a Tinder Box not far from where I lived then so didn't learn much about the actual tobacco. So now trying to learn about all the strange names and such. I have been smoking some C&D Flake and like it pretty well, but have some others on the way to try.

I do have some very nice pipes, Caminetto's, Peterson, Nording and a few others. I think one is a auto Macoli (not sure of the name) from 1974 and a Smooth Caminetto Mustache (has all the names on it) are by best. Have a few other very nice ones I bought at pipe shows way back then too. I think the couple of Caminetto Business ones I like best.

Anyway just saying hello and will surely have some questions, like what does everyone else do about the moisture in the pipe while smoking it?

Welcome Skip. If your pipe is gurgling, just use a pipe cleaner. For a more permanent fix, have it drilled open.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

I usually can't smoke a bowl from start to finish for lots of reasons, but no matter about that. I usually sling it out for the most part, but if my wife catches me I may get into a bind, LOL!

I do use a pipe cleaner a lot just wondered if anyone slings it out like I do.

I have been on a buying binge on tobaccos mostly because since I don't have any kind of store withing 100 miles of me I can't do like I did once before when I could just go to the Tinder Box and pick out what I wanted. Also never knew back in the 1970's all the names for the different kind they put in the blinds. Have found Flak though and like it a lot. Opening Night, Manhattan Afternoon and Sunday Picnic have found there why into my keeper's. Just ordered some more to try.

Thanks again for the nice welcome,

Skip

Must be very rewarding to have kept your pipes from the beginning of this journey. Thanks for the pics Skip, keep them coming.

Thanks guys!

My hobby has taken over it seems. Here are a few more pictures of the area.

It's pretty bad, LOL! There are a few of the cabinets hidden under the table and I have a couple of 5 gallon buckets too under the desk. Not to mention several flat containers that hold my prize material like full rooster skins with one a Cree and the other a med. barred ginger. Then a bunch of capes and saddles with many being really high quality.

Welcome to BoB, my Longhorn neighbor!!! I apologize for not getting to this thread earlier. But, I've been busy working on a project with one of the other brothers.

You have definitely got a wonderful man cave! Fly tying has always intrigued me. But, I've never had the "eye" for it. And, my vision is too poor now anyway.

I LOVE that Caminetto pipe!!!!!! I'm a sucker for what I call big, huge, gaudy pipes! And, the bigger, and gaudier they are... the better I like them. I also have a love affair with Churchwardens. I just don't store the girls too close together. They might get to talking, and.... lol! lol!

Again, welcome aboard!!! And, I hope you enjoy your stay!!

No kidding, I don't think I have a pipe from the first five years.

Wow Falconer, never realized we looked that much alike.

Thanks again for the great welcome!

I have been eying a couple of pipes, but it's hard on line. However I am thinking as long as I know the brand some it should be alright. One is a Peterson and the other a Savinelli Tundra Smooth and told the wife they look like a good Christmas present to me, LOL!

Thanks on the man cave complements. I had bypass surgery in 2000 and for some reason having to do with what I believe is being on that heart pump for a time, it has some things going on in your brain. I had been a successful stock trader for about 15 years and after that I didn't even want to for about a year and then when I did I still knew what to do, but wouldn't do it. So I quit and then since I am somewhat disabled I can fish all day and was not going to watch TV all day so started tying crappie jigs. People started asking if I would sell some so I did. Here I am 4 1/2 years later so busy tying I can't keep up and I hardly ever take any money out and all goes into materials. So after all this time I have a really nice supply of materials for tying and buy most wholesale so sometimes will order things for others starting out tying and help them learn how to tie.

I am a mod on the jig tying board at crappie.com and we have something like 9600 members there so I have lots of things to do and most of the time too much, LOL!

I feel sure that I will enjoy this board a lot, have tried another one, but just too restrictive and don't like that much. I have been a mod on several boards for almost 15 years now and lots of that was a Cowboys board where lots of flame wars were going on. So understand how important it is to keep these boards clean. I do like the layout and feel of this board and so far the guys on here are just great!

Thanks all,
Skip

Hey Skip,

Welcome to Bob. Always nice to have a fellow East Texan on board. All of us grew up in Buna and I lived in Kirbyville a good while until I moved back to Central Texas. My Aunt taught English in Hemphill High School and my Uncle was the Methodist minister there for years and years.
