Ok so I am an old, (older, oldish??) pipe smoker, on and off for the past almost 40 years. The first smoke ever to cross my lips was Borkum Riff whiskey in a clay lined plastic billiard back about 1970. Gave it up for cigarettes, took it up again in the early 90's, then quit pipes for cigars until about 5 years ago. Been a 1 or 2 bowl per week smoker until very recently when I have been finding a bowl a day or even 2 seems to better fit my needs. Pure Virginia and Vapers are my favorites, but a few English blends - especially Dunhills - are also in my rotation. I have tried to smoke some aromatic and drugstore blends as well but just can't finish a bowl.

Anyway, I discovered this great website and am looking forward to reading and discussing all things pipe and pipe tobacco related. I still collect and occasionally smoke cigars and even a better-grade cigarette, but the pipe is where my heart is.

I hope to be posting about some new pipe acquisitions soon as well, as I have about 20 pipes in my Ebay watch list. Coming originally from Canada I own and have continued to purchase a nice collection of Brighams, but have recently expanded out to Pete's, some older Kaywoodies, and just received my first Dunhill. Of course, a few Missouri Meerschaums are always around as well. Sorry to say I no longer have one of the clay-lined plastic pipes I started with but may run across one some day.

Looking forward to making everyone's acquaintance.

Mike aka Hunter

A warm welcome Mike. Good to note the Canuk connection through your Brigham pipes. I have a number of Brighams and use them mainly for English and Orientals.

Very Happy

Welcome my friend. I too started out smoking Borkum Riff Whiskey. Loved it back in the day - for some reason can't abide it now. Enjoy the forum. Lots of nice and fun folks on here.

PostSubject: Thanks Everyone   Sun Aug 02, 2009 9:58 am

Thanks everyone for the nice welcomes. I have already found many interesting threads and some valuable new information here on BoB.

My 2 yr old grandson is spending the week with us and despite my interest in informing him of the good nature of pipe smoking vs the other choices, I have been admonished by grandma to keep it to a minimum. Since the little tyke doesn't got to bed until 11pm (our son moved to the middle east a while back so their time clocks are all screwed up) I don't even get my late night smoke very reliably, so reading BoB for the next few days may have to be my "fix".
