welcome from Charleston, WV! I just started smoking a pipe in October. Great group here!
She came in with a smile and a pipe. A study of contradictions, she seemed to understand more than most. Eyes shining with humor and a comforting, easy to talk to demeanor. She was a goddess in mortal skin. She raised a glass and said, "Confusion to the memory of Newton."
I have been smoking for several years. I have never thought about getting in the internet to talk about it until now. I'm glad I found my way here.
Welcome aboard Redbriar!
I think that the internet has been a real game changer for a lot of people....certainly in getting exposure for buying and selling is a lot better than relying on quarterly or semiyearly catalogues.....On the discussion side that you mention, so many people started our with a crappy basket ppe and a tongue roasting blend from a drugstore....for the new smoker, they don't have to suffer that rite of passage. With a few cobs and some inexpensive samples online, a person can get up and running pretty quickly.
I look forward to hearing contributions from your many years of pipe smoking.
