PostSubject: Hello from NC!   Sun Sep 26, 2010 11:00 pm

Hello there, a new pipe smoker here having switched from cigarettes a little over a week ago. So far I'm keeping it simple with a Mississipi Meerschaum corn cob while I learn about different pipes and styles as well as tobaccos.

I currently hail from north central NC, between Greensboro and Winston Salem and am 35 years old. I have some vague memories of my grandfather smokinga pipe when I was very small, perhaps the reason I'm making the move myself.

Having lurked around the site a bit the last couple of days I've slready learned a fair bit and look forward to exploring this new hobby with you all.

So far only the two tobacco's, both common mass market stuff. Captain Black Gold, which I quite liked and Middleton's Cherry blend that I'm kinda "meh" on. Smokeable but wouldn't run out for it in a hurry again.

Looking at Peterson I think when I finally get a "real" pipe. Trying to keep the cost reasonable to start as I have a bad habit of allowing my hobbies to break the bank.

Thank you all for the warm welcome!

from experience, I can recommend the Missouri Meerschaum corn cob pipes. Great smokers, and most for < $10. You should consider trying some Prince Albert in the OTC category.

PM me your address if you want, we'll see what we can do Cool

It could be worse, he could have made the other three he was originally planning on, 7 8 and 9 were in the original plan. The droids (R2 and 3PO) were going to be the common thread through it all.

i'm sorry vercer, this was suppose to be about welcoming you to the BoB, but as you can see, we're just going to argue about star wars in every thread...you could be right, but my god man, i don't know if i could image anything worse than jar jar binks.

(just so you know, they're arguing about pipe tobacco in the star wars forum)
