Just noticed that you have a "new member intro" here in the pipe forums. I already posted in the general pipe forum but I figured I should pop in here and make an official intro. I just joined CS about 2 months ago on the "gar" side. I have known only a few pipe smokers over the years but it has always been in the back of my mind that it's something I would like to try. I've been building my stock of cigars but haven't been able to enjoy them due to needing to let them rest up in the humi. It's tough to sit here watching them slumber and not be able to enjoy a nice smoke. So I say to myself, self I says, "now would be the time to try out smoking a pipe". So, for better or worse, here I am ready to slide down another slope.
