PostSubject: Introduction   Thu Oct 22, 2009 10:09 am

Hello, as you can guess from my moniker, I'm in law enforcement. I am a 21 year veteran of a middle sized town in the Piedmont of NC. I have only been smoking for about 2 months, and decided to do so upon finding a couple of old Dr. Graybow pipes that were my dad's from over 40 years ago...they are somewhat broken in. I have 2 other briars that were made in Italy. I have been trying out different tobaccos, but find that I keep going back to a vanilla flavor. That special someone in my life also likes the vanilla aroma. I have been a smokless tobacco user, but have never smoked until now. Please don't think me ignorant, but I actually had to google how to smoke a pipe...how to light it and keep it lit, how to pack the bowl, etc. I was introduced to this site by a friend who is former law enforcement...and I am glad he did as there is lots of good info here. Thanks for the opportunity to learn and look forward to many interesting posts.

Welcome! I don't think anyone here will fault you for googling how to smoke a pipe, most here learned the hard way without instructions from anyone! With the internet there are many sources of material which weren't available to me 30 years ago when I first picked up a pipe at the ripe old age of 18.

Some sites which might help you expand your world a bit (and help spend some of your hard earned money)

http://www.smokingpipes.com/
http://www.marscigars.com/
http://www.thepiperack.com/
http://www.deadmanspipes.com/
http://www.frenchyspipes.com/ (Frenchy is DA BOMB to deal with!!!)

http://www.tobaccoreviews.com/
http://www.aspipes.org/

And of course this forum here at BoB, I have a much larger listing of bookmarks here:

http://home.windstream.net/rrowe1961/k1_bookmarks.html

I don't think anyone here believes there is a stupid question about pipes.

Again, Welcome cheers

I've been smoking a pipe for a few years 3?4?5? I have terrible memory issues, but anyway...
I still google and youtube for pipe stuff... aint no shame in collecting info... whats shameful is having info available and refusing to harness it..

Search youtube for

Laughter1099, PipeFriendCHS,1968eric, and our own dubinthedam you'll find them enjoyable and informative
