Hello friends,

Looks like a nice place to smoke some manly tobacco ... firing up some 1792 and I think I'll sit down over <<< there!

Welcome, from a fellow newcomer.

I just smoked 1792 for the first time the other day, my first experience with tonquin as well. Not sure what I think yet. I haven't smoked it again though. It kind of left my mouth...buzzing.

Glad you decided to join... it's a pretty good group of folks after you get used to them. Laughing

I wear the MacDougall tartan, (yes a rebel clan). My maternal grandmother was a McDowell (sept of MacDougall) I also have ties to Campbell, Ross, Ogilvie, and Elliot some being Highlanders, others Lowlanders and some Border clans. I guess my ancestors 'got around'

Yeah I'm definitely a Southerner (now) I've lived in 'The South - Texas and Georgia' longer than where I was raised (Upstate, NY) but I've always had the 'Southern state of mind and being'. As a kid I always dreamed of living elsewhere, where freedom and leave me alone on 'MY LAND' still meant something. I always rejected 'big government' in pursuit of what our US Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantee us, favoring 'States Rights' and 'Local Governance' over a large and invasive federal (feudalistic) system.

So don't let the fact that I'm not a 'Native Southerner' fool you. I think you'll find I'm a 'Rebel to the Core'. Our family records show recorded births in what is now America, but then was New Amsterdam in 1570's so I claim myself a 'Native American' (though not on tax forms :-p )and I believe that's what counts the most.

It's time for 'True Americans' to stand firm and defend our heritage and stop letting the pencil pushers in Washington enslave us with a socialist agenda.

Too political for ya? I'm a jaded old fart, get over it!

Hey Ol'Dawg,

I'm over here in Jasper, just south of Ellijay, where are you? We ought to get together, catch some fish, hunt some deer and smoke pipes (when there's time).

Well I did notice your pipe is upside down, presumably to keep the rain out. Everyone knows (who have smoked 1792 that is) that an upside down pipe concentrates the 'goodness' of 1792 but for the novice, this concentration is often over-powering tongue

Hey Trout Bum!

I'm learning the finer art of Fly Fishing myself! I had first tried it years ago Fly Fishing western Arkansas for Smallmouth Bass with crawfish patterns. Now I'm learning Trout and Largemouth patterns and methods.

Best fish so far? 5 pound 2 ounce stocked Rainbow Trout on a Mudder Minnow on a 5 weight rod with an 8x tippet. It was an interesting 8 minutes of terror I can assure you!

I really need to get better at managing the wind before I can hope to tackle western waters though. I'd love to learn Spey casting and methods also.

Yeah, nothing beats an elbow to the ribs saying 'enemy' while sharing a wee dram! Very Happy

Actually my sporran is of all black leather with leather tassels, and rather light at present.



I've seen some sporrans that I'd love to purchase, made of American Badger masks (a completely different sort of animal than your British variety)


As for whats beneath the Kilt (the seeming question of the ages)



Should answer the question, she seems enthusiastic about what she's found! Laughing

Amongst many of the Scottish Regiments, the R.S.M. (Regimental Seargent Major) would have a small dental mirror, fixed to the end of his Pace Stick, at "Stand at ease", the RSM would occasionaly lower the pace stick between the feet, to ensure that none were "Improperly dressed"
