I just wanted to say hello. I recently decided to start enjoying a pipe, partly to help quit cigarettes, but mostly because I love the look and smell of them. I only wish I had taken the time to look into sites like this before I started, because I am currently smoking bulk tobacco out of cheap pipes, and wish I had known that it is better to start off with a better quality pipe. Here's to everyone that has taken the time to make beginners like me feel welcome!

Hey Janitor, Welcome to the crew!
In your own State of PA there is an excellent pipe maker; J.M. Boswells in Chambersburg if your down that way check them out, you can get a very good smoking pipe for a very resonable price. They are wonderful folks too.

While on that subject curiously, one can research ritual tobacco usage by natives of the Americas and find some fascinating (horrifying) things:

The application of tobacco in any other form, such as rectally by enema, is almost unknown in South America except amongst the Aguarunas, a Jivaroan tribe of Ecuador who apply it by clyster alone or mixed with Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca is repeatedly drunk alternating with swallows of tobacco juice to cause vomiting before use of the tobacco-ayahuasca enema. The Kulina customarily smoke all night when taking Ayahuasca.

The source for this.

I invite you to begin exploring all things concerning the pipe and tobacco but NOT go to the extremes mentioned above!
