Its been a fair while since i last visited and commented on this board. good to see some of the old faces still here.
I am still working in the tobacco industry in Tanzania and really enjoying myself. its pretty remote and can get a little lonely but i have a great house and a great job so time flies by until i can get out for a couple of weeks leave every 2-3 months.
I was not smoking my pipes very much over the last 2 years as most of them were still in UK, but recently i have brought a bunch of pipes and tobacco back and i am getting back into the enjoyment of the different blends.
Living so far from a source of pipe tobacco may be a problem, but i will be slowly bringing all my stock from UK over the next few visits. i have had to revive a couple of old tin that had dried out - i know, i should have jarred the tobacco when i first opened the tin! - anyway it has been a success leaving the tobacco in a bowl with a damp cloth over the top for 18 hours - nice moist tobacco again!
Currently sitting looking out on my swimming pool, listening to the birds and enjoying some very smooth (revived!) 2012 Penzance in a little pipe kindly made and given to me by one of our old members Briar Spirit. -- sadly not heard from him for a few years, hope he is ok.
Looking forward to spending more time on here again and catching up with all of you.
