The Deepest South, that is. I'm a longtime lurker who finally decided to join up. I'm from Alabama also (like several other members here). Mobile, in fact, the birthplace of Mardi Gras, aka "the Mother of the Mystics".

I have been smoking a pipe for a few years now, but have only just now begun to "take it seriously" so to speak. I have only now begun to collect pipes and seek out tobaccos that I can't find here locally. I currently only have 3 pipes and a corn cob. A Big Ben Maestro (Derby shape, blasted finish) that I got off of eBay, which is currently my favorite pipe. I also have a Peterson 309 Rustic p-Lip that I like a lot, a basket pipe that I use at work, and a Missouri Meerschaum that I use for trying out new tobaccos or for smoking something cheap like Captain Black.

Looking forward to continuing my pipe/tobacco education here with all of you gentlemen and, hopefully, contributing to this community of brothers (and sisters) of briar.

You're just a few hours from this part of the deep south - Jackson, Mississippi.

Glad to have you here.

Welcome! If you're really gonna get into it you should make the drive up to Birmingham (Homewood, to be exact) and check out The Briary. It's one of the most esteemed pipe shops in the land. It's a shame I'm not still in Birmingham to check it out.

Cool! I'm very familiar with that area. My wife is from Moulton/Florence. Lot of good music history in the Shoals area.

Cool! I once had a friend who wrote for one of the Anniston newspapers.

I'm honestly surprised at how many of us Alabamians there are on this site. I rarely run into other pipesmokers around here, but to see more than one on a nationwide pipe forum seems, to me, a rare thing indeed.

Ok, not to keep bumping up my "welcome" thread, but I have noticed other Alabama people on here as well, besides the folks posting in this thread.

We seriously need to start some sort of Alabama pipesmokers club. I'm being serious.
