Wasnt sure if this was the right place to put this but...
As i travel back from a wonderful Pennsylvania vacation, and week of pipe smoking every day, I started to think about how I learned how to smoke a pipe.
My neighbor was a good fellow and got me into the hobby but its been 12 yrs since I packed my first pipe. What ive learned about packing, or filling as i try to think of it, was through the wisdom and advice available on the internet.
As useful as it is, pipe smoking is a tactile event. Like cooking a steak, it isnt something you learn just by reading. Experience is great, but practice doesnt necessarily mean perfect.
I am looking for an experienced pipe smoker in my area who would be willing to have me share a smoke with but to assess and guide my technique. I am the only pipe smoker I know here. BoB is the one place I trust with this
Type of request.
Many thanks to you all for the consideration.
