Greetings to all. I am glad I found this forum as it has already helped me get me entrenched in this exciting microcosm.

I find myself in the frigid land of Chicago (after living for the past ten years in South Carolina) and decided after reading a little Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that I needed a hobby. After winning a nice sized kitty from fantasy football, I splurged on a Peterson Bent Billiard at Iwan Ries & Co. on Wabash. The guys there recommended their house blend English Full to get me started based on what I told them about what flavors I liked.

You can see me light up as I leave Union Station and walk to work in River North... a 2 mile jaunt that is perfect for about 3/4ths of a pipeful.

I have already learned a few tricks from lurking on the site, and just picked up a couple more pipes so I can have a nice rotation and let the pipes dry for a good 2 days or more.

I cant wait til the weather turns nice so I can start grilling outside with a pipe in my mouth and a cold beer in my hand.

Also, I have made a decision to stick to my B&M shop as long as they are still around.... god knows what the politicians in this state will do next. Worth the extra few bucks to keep them around.

Welcome to the forum, Jefe! It's great to have you here. Sounds like you got started off with a great pipe and some great tobacco. Shoot me a PM maybe I can put together some samples for you to try cheers

Greetings, Jefe. Sounds like you're off to a good start with your pipes and tobacco. I'm with you on this weather, brother. I'm right down the road in MI where we get all the crappy weather from Chicago after you guys are done with it. Let's get some grilling weather, already!

Welcome! Northern Illinois winter suck! Spent about half my life in Rockford. Would like to visit Iwan Ries on one of my infrequent trips to Rockford.
