Hello out there!

I've been a reader of the board for a while, but never joined up. But here I am!

I'm an Upstate New Yorker, living in the Adirondack Region. Picked up collecting pipes and tobacco back in college about ten years ago. I've been collecting and smoking off and on for that whole time. I have a few Pete's, a few Stanwells, two Boswells, a Jake Hackert, a Nielsen, two recently purchased Tim West pipes, and a few more varieties here and there. I'm a big fan of billiards and billiard off-shoots... but I've been getting more into bents lately.

Big fan of cobs, as well. Just recently started looking into those nice stems at Walker's. I probably smoke my cobs more than my nice briars.

Other than pipes, I'm a maker of a bunch of things, rustic crafts and such, a welder, maple syrup maker, beer brewer, wine maker, hop grower, etc. And, then I work a regular job during the day... heh.

Favorite tobacco - Adirondack Mixture from the now closed "With Pipe and Book" in Lake Placid. (Which, BTW is now blended by Cup O' Joes)

Welcome and good to meet you brother. I envy your home location. I've spent some happy vacation days in North Creek and appreciate the natural beauty of the Adirondack Park. Great place to smoke a pipe....great in the summer and splendid on a snowbank in the winter. Cup-o-Joe's will certainly take good care of your needs.

Thanks for the welcome(s)!!

LIPIPE --- You are right, the Adirondacks are a great place in both the winter and the summer for a pipe. I've had many good days in the woods during the winter and there is not much better than silence, snow and a nice warm pipe.

Welcome Aboard! Love the Adirondacks! Used to live in Syracuse back in the 80's. Old Forge, Tupper Lake,Saranac, Blue Mtn. Lake, Indian Lake, Long Lake, Thousand Islands,Oh how I miss them all. The Adirondacks was once named America's Best Kept Secret. Most people don't even know where they are. They don't know what they're missing. What part of Adirondacks do you call home?

They are a beautiful place! *Ssshhhh* Smile

I used to live on the northern side of the ADKs, near Canton. Now, I've moved to the southern side - just north of the Mohawk Valley on the West Canada Creek.

Hi Mike ---

I worked in Gloversville for a few years and spent some time in Potsdam... Very familiar with both places! Man, I always loved Potsdam... just hard to find work up that way!

Welcome ADK. I always enjoyed stopping at Pipe and Book in my travels. Glad to hear their blend is still being produced.

Welcome from another newbie. We lived for a while in the Berkshire's of Mass. Don't know if that counts as being somewhat in the neighborhood. I'm still trying to get up to Lake George one of these years for Americade.

Well, if you are ever up that way for Americade, stop a few exits down and visit Cup O' Joes. Great pipe and tobacco shop.

I've never gone to Americade, but I have some friends that do. It's too controlled for me... every year there are stories of road blocks and tickets for loud pipes, illegal helmets, etc., etc.,

It's a beautiful area up there, though.

I've ordered a few things from Cup O' Joes before.

Also sounds like you ride. True? What are you riding?

I've wanted to spend a week up in the ADKs next summer but I don't really now where to start. I'm no woodsman so I need a base hotel to kind of get my bearings and figure the place out a little. Any suggestions where I should go?

WingRider: I have a HD sportster that I bought almost ten years ago... I've wanted to upgrade, but I've put some customization on this bike, and I really don't want to sell my first bike to finance another. I'll have to save up my pennies and wait Smile I've been curious to check out some Triumphs and such, too. But, I'm really interested in rebuilding something like an old 42WLA.

I usually attend the Harley Rendezvous in upstate NY each year. That's a good party Very Happy

bazsup: I would say to stay somewhere either around or in Lake Placid if you need a good base camp. The drive up is gorgeous and it would put you near a ton of hiking trails, canoeing spots, etc. There is stuff to do in town during the day and night, good food, etc. If you are looking for something a little more rustic, I would check out some of the "hotels" around Speculator. And, you can camp anywhere in the Park with some minor restrictions.

I spent two weeks once after college with a few friends, camping from town to town across the Adks and into Vermont. What a good time. We would camp and hike around, then go into towns for the night when we were close enough. What a blast.

Welcome to the forum, I'm sure you will have a great time here. I also live in the northeast, about 45 south of Boston.
