I've been lurking here for awhile and finally decided to sign up. About me: I picked up my 1st pipe when I was 18 (I'm now 64) and have smoked pipes on and off through the years. I smoked cigarettes for most of that time and switched to cigars somewhere in my 50's. When I retired, 5 years ago, I found my cigar habit to be a bit to expensive so I broke out all of my old pipes and started to experiment with various tobaccos. Are you laughing yet? I'll just cite the magic acronims (sp?) learned from this site - TAD & mostly PAD! Who knew?? Anyway, over the last 5 years or so, in a quest for the perfect smoking pipe, I've bought and sold many at a cost that puts my old cigar habit to shame. In the course of my venture I've read and studied everything I could find on the internet and from various other sourses. Have I found the answer? Well--- YES and NO! For me, for now at least the answer(s) are made in Italy. We'll not talk about my time as a sailor in Naples.... I'm in the process of revising my rotation (another catchy word learned on the internet) with Castello's and Cacicchi's. They are the consistantly the best smoking pipes that I have found in the price range that I am willing to spend. (Til my wife finds out.) Of course I haven't tried them all and I sure that there are many others out there that would fit the bill, but for now I have drawn the line and will stick with these two for my PAD attacks. Anyway, now that I have decided to sign up I will attempt to be a good citizen and to contribute where I can with what little knowledge I have.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm afraid that I don't have the computer skills most of the members seem to have i.e., not all that smart and probably the reason I've beem lurking for so long + I am a bit creepy. I will try to learn. I like pictures too and will make an attempt at posting when appropriate. Thanks again..........Bob H

Haven't retired yet, but I picked up my first pipe at 16, bought my first decent smoker at 28, and have been happily collecting pipes and tobaccos as a avocation for the past 5 years or so. You grow into it. Great group of guys here, glad to see your post.
