PostSubject: Hello from Vallejo, CA (SF Bay Area)   Fri Jul 27, 2012 10:37 pm

Greetings,

I've been laid up for the past 12 days since I had a bad motorcycle crash in Haines, Alaska on 7-15. I've had some time this week to replace my old briar which I snapped in half of in Coldfoot, AK about half way on our 5 week trip to Alaska. I managed to keep it together with electrical tape the remainder of the tour. I just landed a very nice David Jones Rustictated Dublin this eve off ebay that is a present to myself for surviving the crash and getting into Graduate School which I start on Aug 1st. I'm a Doctor of Pharmacy candidate at Touro University in Vallejo, CA. I also came across BoB while on the couch this week recovering and am happy to find the forum!

I've been smoking pipe tobacco for the past 20 years and have pretty much stuck to cheap pipes and local tobacco blends. I had been living in Portland, Oregon the past 15 years and pretty much exclusively smoked the Alder Street blend created by the excellent tobacco blender Steve at Rich's Tobacco in Downtown Portland.

I'm also looking forward to taking a trip to the famous Grants Tobacco in San Fran soon. In closing, I am looking forward to my new David Jones Pipe to keep me company in my studies this next year and learning from the knowledge and practice of the BoB forum.

Thank you,

Eric Wager
Vallejo, CA

Welcome to BoB enjoy your time here and feel free to ask questions. Quite the ingenuity to hold your pipe together when you had the need to in AK. I had never heard of David Jones before but his pipes but found his site http://www.davidjonespipes.com to be interesting, just wish he had more variety in pics on his site or his eBay store. You will have to post up in the PAD/TAD section with pics and a review of how it smokes once it makes it to you. Enjoy and welcome.

Thank you so much for the warm reception Kaiser83 Very Happy

I will for sure take some pictures and do a review of my new DJ pipe which should arrive late next week. I'm also currently out of tobacco here in Vallejo. My motorcycle is in Bellingham, WA where i have it stored after we left alaska on the state ferry from Haines, Ak to Bham, WA. My remaining tobacco, bandaged pipe, and my zippo are still on my motorcycle pictured in my Avatar (06' KTM 950). I'm hoping to take a trip to Grant's Tobacco in SF this next week for fresh tobacco. As well. I should get my motorcycle back to CA the weekend of Aug 3 cheers Thank you!

Thank you so much! My left hand isn't so easy to use on the keyboard with the splint I've been wearing for the past 12 days.

Just fixed my "hello from Vallejo, VA" to "hello from Vallejo, CA" Very Happy

And I just ordered some tobacco on-line for the first time this eve:

Hamborger Veermaster 8oz
Embarcadero 2oz
Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g

I can't wait for the new pipe this next week and these three tobaccos which I've never tried. Really informative forum!

Welcome, Eric! Soon you'll have stacks of tobacco tins and a cellar of mason jars, wondering when you'll have time to try it all!

Great to meet another from the Bay Area D&B! I'm looking forward to getting down to SF and checking out Grants very soon. Grants has an interesting web site and claim they supplied tobacco to the late Anwar Sadat of Egypt Shocked

Thanks so much Fishfuzz and glpease!

Today was the first day of my orientation as a Doctor of Pharmacy Candidate at Touro University in Vallejo, CA. I am blown away by the amazing staff here and the depth of Cancer research by many of the Professors at Touro. I really had no idea just how many faculty at Touro were involved in medical research! Today was just inspiring!

I'm in the the right place and have that rare feeling today when all the stars align and you can feel your destiny in hand. It's really been one of those rare days in life. I'm not a spring chicken anymore and am so thankful for this opportunity in my life. Its way exceeded my expectations and I can't wait for classes to begin next Monday!

To cap my first day of Grad School, I just received my David Jones Dublin this evening and have zero tobacco. It looks like my smokingpipes.com tobacco order will not arrive until next Monday. I might have to take the 45-1hr trip to SF this weekend and visit Grants Tobacco grantspipeshop.com

Thanks so much for the very warm welcome and you guys have an A+ forum and have an amazing community on the web! Well done!

BHB

Congratulations on grad school!

I'm thinking, yes, Grant's is an hour or so away, but I'm just across the bridge. I might have something to tide you over. I do, after all, know this guy who supposedly makes some pretty decent tobaccos...
